Q:

What is a C1 driving license?

A:

To drive vehicles weighing 3,500 to 7,500 kilograms, people in the European Union need a C1 driving license. The C1 license also allows drivers to pull a trailer that weighs up to 750 kilograms.

Vehicles within the C1 category are considered medium-size vehicles or light lorries. Before applying for a C1 license, drivers must have a B license that allows them to drive a car.

To pull trailers over 750 kilograms, drivers must apply for a C1+E entitlement to add to their C1 full license. This entitlement allows them to pull a fully loaded trailer that weighs up to the total weight of their vehicle. There is also a 12,000 kilogram total combined weight limit.

    Can people find the owner of a car with a specific license plate number?

    A:

    The only way to learn the identity of someone with their license plate number is by contacting the local or state police, and the police can only assist in locating the individual if a person has been involved in an accident such as a hit-and-run. Vehicle registration information is legally considered confidential unless the individual conducting the search has obtained a legal sanction in order to access the information. There are online sites that offer limited information on vehicle owners, but these sites charge a fee.
