How should I modify my driving when towing a trailer?

To tow your trailer safely you should remember these points:

  1. The overall length of your vehicle increases when towing a trailer. It is therefore necessary to widen your turns to avoid hitting kerbs.
  2. The additional weight of a trailer and its load will increase your stopping distance. You must therefore allow more time for braking.
  3. When reversing you must steer the opposite way to the direction in which you require the trailer to travel.
  4. You should never exceed the maximum towing weight for your towing vehicle.
