They can start with a full trailer training course preparing someone starting as a novice to trailer towing, to be safe and be ready, through to B+E courses that can be specifically tailored for someone who already has the trailer licence entitlement but has never towed before.

We are experts in towing training and giving lessons/coaching with trailers and in all aspects of B+E usage.

Lessons for caravan towing, lessons for horse box towing and towing with commercial vehicles (up to 3.5 tonne vans) are very popular with our clients.

Do I need a B+E trailer training course?

Not sure if you need a trailer training course with us? No problem – here are some things for you to consider, but please call us if you’re still uncertain.

If you have taken your B (car) category test before 1st January 1997 you may have already been given the +E (trailer) category automatically and usually can tow a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8250kg.
If you have taken your B (car) test on or after 1st January 1997 you can tow a trailer as long as the total combination or train weight does not exceed 3500kg. - - To calculate this take the potential ‘gross weight’ as stated on your V5c, (vehicle logbook) of the towing vehicle you are using and add to the ‘actual weight’ of the trailer you are using, including the carried load. - -

So in short if you want to tow a large trailer weighing more than 750kg and you took you driving test after 1st January 1997 you ‘may’ need to take a DVSA B+E towing test.
