    Trailer test

    Just thought I would go on to the DVLA to see how to register and costs etc. Here is the reply below. Lee Thank you for showing interest in our trailer registration service. At this stage, we are only looking to on board trailers being registered for commercial use. Trailers not being used commercially can still be registered (criteria outlined below) but not at this stage, you will be able to do this in the very near future. All Commercial trailers weighing over 750kg in gross weight and non-commercial trailers weighing over 3500kg in gross weight when travelling internationally will need to be registered. This means that these trailers making these journeys will need to: Be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) Display their own registration plate (separate from the vehicle towing them) Be able to present the UK trailer registration certificate (VTRC) to a foreign authority on request Trailers solely used in the UK do not need to be registered. More information about when you should be able to register should be available on Gov.uk over the coming weeks.

    CCTV recommendations

    Just my little input, I have installed CCTV at my home/work (Hotel) and it regularly gets used by the local boys and girls in blue, as the road I'm on quite often gets used for people going to or coming back from being little naughty. Unfortunately I had an intruder on Thursday night /Friday morning. they broke in and thankfully I managed to disturb them mid job. I can put some sample images up a bit later as I'm just about to go out to a meeting. The lessons that I learnt was to have a camera that is head height as without a facial image the police are restricted as to what they can do. Normally offender (here anyway) have a hood up or hat on so cameras that are mounted quite high are helpful but not admissible. I am about to put in another 4 cameras for exactly this reason (I currently have 14 running). The placing of the cameras is as, if not more important than the cameras you use. Also make sure you have very good IR coverage as the night time is when most things tend to happen and make sure you get a good anti spider system set up, be it regular cleaning or coming the cameras with deterrent spray, as mentioned earlier they are a pain in the rear at night.
