A = motorcycle

B = car under 3500kg or car + trailer with a combined weight less than 3500kg

E = trailer (in excess of what is covered under category B)

G = road roller

H = tracked vehicle

Which of those categories you are allowed to drive will be marked on the licence with the date when you passed the respective test.

It certainly surprised me when you said that you've got the letter 'E' marked as well if you didn't take the test for a trailer. Sounds as though the official who issued it added it by mistake. But if that's what your licence says, I wouldn't argue. But, as the Zafira and the trailer tent combined weigh less than 3500kg max. you wouldn't have anything to worry about anyway. That would already be covered by the 'B'.

My keyboard must be the posh type. I've got letters all over it! Am I getting old or does it take aanybody else twice as long to read abbreviated words?

It is hard work to read! Also, it takes no more time to type proper words and sentences, so I don't see what you gain, apart from the continued attrition of the English language!

I'm not trying to defend it but I can offer an explanation. The purpose behind this strange spelling is to reduce the number of letters. SMS Messages sent by mobile phone are limited to about 160 characters, including spaces, so ways and means were developed to cram as much information as possible within that limit.
