Get Towing B+E Training is a DVSA Authorised Centre – training and tests are conducted in the Essex and surrounding areas.
We conduct B+E trailer training and health & safety duty of care trailer training for individuals and companies including amongst othersIf you passed your driving test after the 1st January 1997 (including re-tests) you must pass a practical category B+E test to tow a trailer which exceeds 750kg on a vehicle weighing 3,500kg; or vehicle and trailer/caravan/horsebox combination over 3,500kg.
All B+E training courses include the use of our vehicle and trailer, for car and trailer training courses, and test purposes. Training and test for the car and trailer test is conducted at our own authorised training area.
The B+E trailer towing test is based on the LGV driving test and lasts for approximately 90 minutes.
The B+E driving test consists of the following requirements:
The ability to carry out safety checks on your vehicle and trailer or horse box trailer
The reversing exercise
Uncoupling and recoupling the trailer
It is important to note that whilst you must be capable of carrying out the manoeuvres and exercises with the trailer, the driving part of the test is carried out up to the LGV driving test standard, therefore assessment and training will cover on-road driving to help ensure your general driving is beyond/above the required standard.
When deciding on a B+E towing course option it is important to be honest with yourself regarding your abilities, especially with reversing. If you have no experience of reversing a trailer then the 1 or 2 day B+E Towing Course allows more time to perfect your manoeuvring skills, therefore increasing your chances of passing on your first attempt. Consider the extra cost involved if you require a re-test.

The majority of people who fail the B+E Test do so because their ‘road driving skills’ do not meet the required standard.
