Anyone know if I, as a 17 year old, can legally drive a pick up truck? Watch

I live in the middle of Cornwall and have animals and stuff, so having a pickup truck would be useful so that I don't have to have hay and straw in the cab of the car. Any advice would be great, thanks.

If you've got a license, are insured on the vehicle, and it's correctly taxed, then yes, why wouldn't you be?

I was looking at the GOV website and apparently there are certain vehicles that are prohibited for people under certain ages.

You can if the maximum authorised mass is lower than 3,500 Kg.

All standard UK-market pickups fall within this category.
