Trailer Training Licence Course

B+E towing training & tests

If you need the B+E category adding to your current driving licence so you can tow a trailer or caravan, or if you just require a little additional trailer training to give you a little more confidence when you’re towing a horse box or caravan, we have a trailer training course that will suit you.

We have many years of experience in getting people through their various driving tests, so you can rely on us to get you through your trailer towing test quickly and to a very high standard. We really do pride ourselves on our exceptional pass rate, currently 90%, and the fact that we do endeavour to get you through successfully within the shortest time scale possible, saving you money on the trailer licence course and also on time from work.

Our driving instructors are friendly, patient and very reliable. They are trained to the highest standard and are all fully qualified, CRB checked and registered Approved Driving Instructors. In addition, they have at least 17 years of experience in towing trailers and caravans.

We’re based in Leigh on Sea, Essex and provide trailer and caravan towing training

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. Whereas we are confident that we can get most candidates with very little towing experience through the B+E towing test successfully within a day and a half 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 regulations and requirements. Your trailer test takes place in the very relaxed setting where you have been trained. A lot of trailer training companies conduct towing training courses where they are based, but then you have to travel 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 driving 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.

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 has a number of driving faults “bad habits” This course would be a full day of trailer training followed the next day by the test day which would conclude with the actual B+E trailer test.

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

  • The reversing exercise
  • The coupling and uncoupling process
  • All aspects of the trailer safety

All manoeuvres will be carried out at an off road driver training facility. This is the same size as the area that all trailer tests are carried out.

Clients find the experience of taking their B+E trailer test in the same place as undertaking trailer training and caravan towing courses to be less stressful and our consistently high pass rates prove this.
