The Layman’s Guide To Towing In The UK.


To date, my original article, and subsequent ‘Definitive’ guide to towing in the UK have received well over 250,000 views, however, it is clear from ongoing, online, discussions, that this is still a hugely misunderstood topic.

To this end, I have decided to both expand the original guide (to cover those aspects that may have been omitted before, such as nose weights and the implications of fitting towing mirrors when not towing, or when the towing vehicle is wider then the caravan, itself) whilst, at the same time, attempting to simplify and further clarify the core messages of the guide.

If you have any concerns, misconceptions or questions, appertaining to towing legislation, or if you just want to know what it’s all about, then it might be worth taking a look at the new Layman’s Guide To Towing In The UK.

  1. Hi Alan. That’s a great article on towing, much easier to read than official notifications. Would you mind if I linked to your article from my website, Berkshire Driving School? I am re-organising it at and it is in a state of flux at the moment. Naturally I will credit you with all the hard work you have put into the article. John Silvester.

      Hi John. Thanks. Of course. No problem at all. That was the idea, to make the message as understandable as possible, and get it out to as many people as possible, so feel free to share, if you think it will be of use. Regards, Alan.
