What was the "question" as towing is a grey issue.

if someone had broken down and you or they had a proper tow rope you could tow them to a "safe" place even if you didnt have the +E on your DL

one was picking up a car and towing it back (fairly long distance) the other was towing a trailer (with a car on) but both drivers only past a few years.

pretty much what mr bunny said,

if its "normal" as not in emergancy towing then as long as the MAM which is explained in Keiths link

if you need to tow for a short distance and its urgent as long as does not require a c or d class you should be find if you can explain it to the officer
