With the arrival of summer comes the higher traffic resulting from families embarking on holiday journeys. Many of those families will be enjoying caravan holidays in their favourite destinations. Unfortunately, the increased traffic also increases the likelihood of very serious crashes involving caravans and tow vehicles. Summer is a time to be extra diligent about driving safely on motorways and dual carriageways.

If you are planning to tow a caravan this summer, you can enhance your overall safety by knowing and obeying the law. Please understand that the law on towing in the UK is very strict. It has been set up to protect the safety of all drivers, not to punish caravan owners.

Having said that, here is what you need to know about the law on towing:

Consider Regular Training

The law on towing in the UK is fairly straightforward. Here at the HGV Training Centre, we recommend regular training in order to keep you apprised of the law. Regular training also helps you to brush up on your skills at the start of every season. Of course, training is a requirement if your tow vehicle and caravan combination require a special licence.

The HGV Training Centre offers towing courses throughout the UK at more than 45 locations. Our training is offered by highly qualified professionals whom we believe are among the best in the business. We will train you in the safe operation of tow vehicles, what qualifies as a proper safety inspection, and more. Our number one goal is to make sure you are the best driver you can be.
