The maximum speed limits for cars towing caravans or trailers (this includes car-derived vans and motorcycles) are set out below:

Built-up areas                              30 mph (48 km/h)

Single carriage-ways                   50 mph (80 km/h)

Duel carriage-ways                     60 mph (96 km/h)

Motorways                                  70 mph (96 km/h)

It is always good advice to reduce the above speeds limits in certain conditions for example:

The condition of the road and layout could be hazardous such as bends.

Built up areas where there maybe pedestrians, people riding horses, especially children, cyclists and motorcyclists

The weather aspect makes it safe to do so.

Night time driving as this can prove sometimes difficult to see other road users
