Empty Travel Permitted – An unladen load-carrying vehicle is not limited to the maximum number of axle restriction, where such a restriction exists.

However, a load-carrying vehicle with a mix of loaded and empty trailers is subject to the maximum number of axle restriction, where such a restriction exists.

Spare tyres and load restraint devices such as folded tarpaulins and side gates are allowed to be carried on empty trailers. A doubled-up trailer is considered to be loaded.
