    I have had a lifelong ambition to own a steam engine and have decided that if I do not do so soon I probably never will. I was wondering if there was anyone out there (on insulin) who drove a steam engine. The DVLA web site was totally confusing and I thought it worth getting some background information before I rang the DVLA. Thanks in anticipation.

    Hi Stephen, :)

    You can drive a steam engine with full category B car licence, you should find this info on the DLVA web site.
    There is also a steam rally this weekend in Bloxham http://banburyrally.com/ or ring them for advice etc;

    If you have a driving licence cleared by the DVLA for health reasons all should be fine.

    I wish you great fun in your venture with steam.( you also usually have a second person on board to be on the safe side.)

    Roy. :)
