UK van speed limits: all you need to know
What's the speed limit for a van in the UK? Well it's not always the same as it is for cars. Here we explain the differences
Speed limits in the UK can be discussed until the cows come home. Are they too high? Or too low? Whatever your belief, it's always useful to know exactly what the speed limits are. However, while posted limits apply to cars (which make up the majority of traffic on UK roads), not all vehicles are covered by the numbers on the speed limit signs. Here we explain the UK speed limits for vans, pick-up trucks, camper vans, car derived vans and dual purpose vehicles. They probably aren't as straightforward as you think.
Large van, HGV and public service vehicle drivers will be instructed on the different limits for their machines when they take the advanced tests you need to pass to drive these vehicles. But if you're driving a smaller van or hiring a van for the weekend, the posted speed limits you see might not apply to the vehicle you're driving. While 30mph, 60mph and 70mph limits are the ones posted, below are the limits that most vans weighing up to 3.5 tonnes have to adhere to in the UK:
UK van speed limits
Built-up areas: 30mph
Single carriageways: 50mph
Dual carriageways: 60mph
So that means the speed limit for vans drops by 10mph on single and dual carriageways, while the other two limits (for motorways and built-up areas) stay unchanged. If you're towing a trailer with your van, then the limit on motorways drops by 10mph to 60mph. Of course, these are the standard limits, local authorities have the power to post different limits on different roads and you should always keep an eye on the road signage, but these are the basic rules to stick to.
