Q&A - RV Towing Rules in BC

Large RV TrailerQUESTION: Are there any special rules for towing recreational vehicle (RV) trailers in B.C.?


ANSWER: The ICBC study guide for Towing a Recreational Trailer is a good place to start. There are also some fact sheets available, including Gross Vehicle Weight, Recreational Vehicle Towing in British Columbia and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), Brake Requirements and Driver's License Types for Recreational Vehicles.

You may also wish to consider attending a driving school and taking instruction on how to operate your combination of vehicles, especially if you have never towed a trailer before. There are many things to consider beyond coupling up and driving away and some driving schools have special courses designed for this need.
