The car and trailer practical driving test

The car and trailer test (B+E) is based on the lorry driving test and lasts in total for approximately 90 minutes.

Please note that  B+E tests are conducted at vocational (bus and lorry) Driving Test Centres we are currently using West Thurrock and Chelmsford trailer Test centres

Your practical driving test will include approximately ten/fifteen minutes of independent driving.

The towing test (B+E) includes:

  • vehicle safety questions, (see below)
  • an off-road reverse manoeuvre
  • uncoupling and coupling of the trailer and driving on the road

This is designed to assess your ability to drive safely while making decisions independently. Your Examiner will either show you a plan or give instructions, (sometimes both)  on which route you should take before starting the independent drive.

Your Instructor / Trainer can accompany you on your Test, (should you require this)

Vehicle safety questions

These are basic safety checks that you should carry out to ensure the vehicle is safe for use. Although some checks may involve opening the bonnet to identify where fluid levels would be checked, you won’t be asked to touch a hot engine or physically check fluid levels. Simply pointing at the correct item and brief explanation should be sufficient

You will be asked five questions, which will be a combination of ‘show me’ and ‘tell me’. A driving fault will be recorded for each incorrect answer to a maximum of four driving faults. If you answer all five questions incorrectly, a serious fault will be recorded.

We can provide you with all the relevant questions


and ensure you are fully prepared for the Trailer Test.

Our car and trailer lessons start with a one day driving courses with Practical Test included for pupils with previous trailer reversing experience and we can offer a two day trailer test courses for less experienced drivers to help you acquire your trailer licence.

Good luck and get towing… 😎
