C 60 mph
D 70 mph
Correct Answer: C 60 mph
Explanation: The speed limit when you're towing a caravan or trailer is lower than the limit for a car that's not towing.
This is mainly because the increased length and weight of the combination make it more difficult to control.
When you're towing a caravan or trailer, you should take your time with any manoeuvres. You should also allow more time for slowing and stopping.
A Accelerate until the swinging stops
B Brake firmly until the swinging stops
C Ease off the accelerator to slow down
D Steer sharply in the opposite direction to the caravan's swing
Correct Answer: C Ease off the accelerator to slow down
Explanation: When you're towing a caravan and it begins to 'snake', you need to bring it back under control.
Don't steer sharply or brake hard. Instead, you should ease off the accelerator and gradually reduce your speed until the caravan stops snaking.
A Because it's in the wrong lane
B Because of side winds
C Because the other cars are passing too close to it
D Because there are traffic cones on the road
Correct Answer: B Because of side winds
Explanation: When a caravan moves about like this, it's called 'snaking'. It happens when the caravan is unstable. There are several reasons why a caravan could snake while you're towing it. They include
  • uneven weight distribution
  • being buffeted by wind from passing high-sided vehicles
  • strong side winds
You should always be aware of the weather conditions while you're driving, but especially when you're towing a caravan.
