You must not tow a trailer while you’re on a learner or restricted licence.

Once you have your full licence, you can tow a light trailer (up to 3500kg when loaded). It must have a WoF. To meet the WoF standard your trailer must be in good condition (no rust around safety areas) and in good working order.

Towing with a motorcycle, even when fitted with a towing connection, can be complex. The additional weight and dynamics will alter the handling of your motorcycle.

Before making modifications, including the fitting of extra lights to your vehicle, check with an approved WoF inspector that the modifications are legal.
