What's the speed limit for a dual purpose vehicle?

What are the speed limits when driving a Nissan NV200 Combi model?

Asked on by

Most Nissan NV200 Combis are classified as dual purpose vehicles, which means it has been constructed or adapted for the carriage both of passengers and of goods and can travel at the same speed as a car, but you’ll need to check the V5C logbook to be sure.

If it has M1 classification then it’s a dual purpose vehicle, but if the V5C has N1 or N2 identification it’ll be classed as a van, which means you’ll be limited to 30mph in built-up areas, 50mph on single and 60mph on dual carriageways. As with cars, the motorway limit for vans is 70mph.
