Why should I service my trailer?

  • Why should I service my trailer?

Trailers are road-going vehicles, therefore they have to be ‘Road Safe’. Currently, there isn’t an MOT requirement for trailers, so it’s the responsibility of the driver to assess whether it’s roadworthy. VOSA (Vehicle and Operator Services Agency) or the police can issue penalty points or a fine if they deem your trailer to be unroadworthy or unsafe.  This is why a regular trailer service is essential, as it helps you to be sure that your trailer is safe to be on the road.
