The following is from the national police site:
'Most double cab pick ups would fall into the class of dual purpose vehicle (examples of a double cab pick up are vehicles such as Mitsubishi Warrior and a Ford Ranger). A dual purpose vehicle is;
◾constructed/adapted for carriage of both passengers and goods
◾a vehicle with an unladen weight not exceeding 2040 kgs
◾constructed/adapted that the driving power of the engine can be transmitted to all wheels
◾must have rigid roof, transverse passenger seats and rear windows amongst other things.
The national speed limits applicable to dual purpose vehicles (when not drawing a trailer) are the same as those for a car:
◾dual carriageway 70mph
◾single carriageway 60mph
◾built up area 30mph'
But my Navara twin cab has a 'mass in service' of 2160kg according to the V5 which is above 2040kg and is therefore a LGV and not a dual purpose vehicle. So restricted to 50, 60 and 70 as opposed to 60, 70 and 70. The V5 states it is a LGV.
Am I correct please?
