Driving a tank

This is a slightly odd question but the DVLA seem to have a complete lack of information on this so I hope so of you ex-army types might know. A friend of mine has a tank, which is completely road legal (rubber tracks, compliant lighting, number plates etc) and it's insured to drive on the road (£120 a year amazing!)

He was in the army so obviously learned to drive a tank during his time there.

I want to drive it on the road but obviously I do not have a tank licence and I'm not in the army. My counterpart driving licence says I have provisional entitlement for category G (road roller) and H (tracked vehicle). I am guessing a tank would be category H as it is a tracked vehicle.

Since he has a full tank licence, and I have provisional entitlement, would I be able to drive his tank on the road displaying L plates with him sat next to me?

The tank weighs about 10 tonnes.

Re: Driving a tank

No problem driving it on the road but according to the gov.uk site you cannot take a test in it.


Category H - tracked vehicles

Must have adequate all-round visibility to let the driver carry out manoeuvres and deal with junctions safely.

Any vehicle needing a second person to help with observation, such as a military vehicle, cant be used for a category H test.
