FTA launches trailer towing safety DVD

The Freight Transport Association has issued an instructional two-disk DVD offering van and light goods vehicle drivers and their managers guidance on how to safely and legally tow trailers.

“Towing trailers with vans and light goods vehicles” is designed to train drivers in the safety aspects of selecting, coupling and driving vehicle combinations, as well as driving techniques, speed limits and reversing.

The second DVD contains managers’ notes and test papers covering driver licensing, operator licensing and drivers’ hours.
The DVD is the third in a series for vans and light goods vehicles, and follows “Routine checks for vans and light goods vehicles” and “Safe loading of vans and light goods vehicles”.
