Having the knowledge to drive a motor vehicle with a trailer attached has many advantages. For the classic bike owner looking to take his classic to a show or to a race, etc., having the knowledge to drive with a trailer is essential.

As with learning to drive a motor vehicle, learning how to drive with a trailer is best accomplished in small steps. Typically, these steps include:

  • Straight line driving
  • Turning
  • Highway (interstate)
  • Overtaking
  • Parking
  • Reversing

For the sake of this article, we will assume the trailer is a basic two wheel type without brakes.
