Update Alert - The new rules for towing a trailer with a car have been delayed

12 Nov 2021

Categories:

The Governments planned changes to the car and trailer towing law, which was due to come into effect on 15 November, have been delayed.

The new laws would allow more people to tow horse trailers without having to pass an additional test.

An update on the UK government website reads:

"The rules about what you can tow will not be changing on 15 November 2021. The change will be introduced at a later date, and as soon as possible." and "You must continue to follow the current rules until the law changes."

At the BHS we want to make sure you are safe at all times and that you have the right licence for the vehicle you are driving and/or towing. You can read our advice on transporting your horse here.
