- The weight of the trailer and contents must be within the vehicle’s towing ability and not more than 85% of the car’s kerb weight if the trailer has brakes, or 50% if it doesn’t.
- Maximum trailer width in the UK and EU is 2.55m
- Indicators, lights and brakes (where fitted) must work and you must display the correct number plate for the towing vehicle on your trailer
- Depending on when you passed your driving test (before or after 01.01.97), the towing allowance will differ
- Speed limits whilst towing on UK roads are 60mph for motorways and dual carriageways and 50mph on single carriageway roads. You must not use the outside lane of a motorway
