About the caravan and trailer towing training course
Do you need a B+E car and trailer test? If you passed a car test on or after 1 January 1997 you’re limited to:
- A vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes MAM (maximum authorised mass) towing a trailer up to 750kgs
- or a vehicle and trailer combination up to 3.5 tonnes MAM providing the MAM of the trailer doesn’t exceed the unladen mass of the towing vehicle
You will need to pass an additional driving test to have the category B+E on your driving license if you wish to tow a caravan or trailer combination which exceeds these weight limits.
If the conditions aren’t met exactly it can result in the driver being unlicensed and uninsured which could carry a maximum of 9 penalty points and a fine of up to £1000, and in some cases maybe even a ban.

Trailer training and caravan towing courses
Some trailer training providers will recommend 3, 4 or even up to 5 day courses!
We are confident that we can get most candidates with very little towing experience through the B+E towing test successfully within a day Or two day course.
With candidates who are more experienced and confident in towing in just one day, providing their general driving ability is of a good standard. The reason we are so confident is that your training is provided by grade A DVSA approved instructors, who are up to date with all the latest DVSA trailer test regulations and requirements.
A lot of trailer training companies conduct towing training courses where they are based, but then you have to travel miles to the nearest DVSA test centre to take your trailer test, which can be totally unfamiliar to you.
1 Day course = £399 inc. test fee
This course is designed for someone who has previous experience and who is confident with reversing a trailer and who showed a good standard of drive on the assessment, with only a few driving faults “bad habits” to sort out. The training course would conclude with the actual B+E trailer test at the end of the day. A lot of people prefer to split this course over two half days, with exceptional results.
2 Day course = £599 inc. test fee
This course is designed for someone who has only limited experience in towing and reversing trailers and caravans, or someone who had a number of driving faults “bad habits” on the assessment. This course would be a full day of trailer training followed the next day by the half day which would conclude with the actual B+E trailer test.

Each trailer training course will cover all aspects of the B+E trailer test including:
