If you passed your driving test after January 1997, you need an additional licence to tow a trailer over 750kg.
A Car Licence (Catagory B) gained between 1st January 1997 and 19th January 2013 covers you to drive vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tonnes, with a trailer not exceeding 750kgs. You can tow heavier trailers, providing the total weight of the vehicle and trailer does not exceed 3.5 tonnes and the vehicle is heavier than the trailer.
The B+E triler test consists of 6 parts:
- An eyesight check
- 6 show me/tell me questions
- Reversing the vehicles and trailer
- A Guided drive
- An independant drive
- Uncoupling and recoupling of the trailer.
The test is undertaken at specialist DVSA driving test centres and last approximatly 90mins, of which 50mins is spent driving.
Our team of expert instructors will guide you throught the process of obtaining your B+E trailer licence.
Our process starts with an assessment drive lasting approx 90mins, during which time we will assess your natual driving ability and habits. This will allow us to accuratly predict the amount of training that is required to bring you up to test standard.
After the assessment drive, we will discuss with each candidate suitable test dates and once a test is booked training will commence using our vehicle and trailer, with both on-road training and the off road skills elements – trailer reversing and coupling and uncoupling being covered.
