The minimum braking system for a trailer depends on the type of trailer, its weight and the weight of the vehicle:
- 0 – 750 kg loaded weight – no brakes required.
- 751 – 2000 kg loaded weight – braking on both wheels on at least one axle.
- 2001– 4500 kg loaded weight – braking on all wheels, and an automatic breakaway system in case the trailer becomes detached from the vehicle.
Brakes must be operable from the driver’s seating position.
