B + E Training

If you passed your car (category B) test after 1st January 1997, you’ll need additional training to gain (E entitlement) if you want to tow a trailer, horse box or caravan that exceeds 750kg gross vehicle weight. We strongly advise that you check the entitlement on your driving licence and the GVW of the vehicle you wish to tow before hitting the road.

Trailer Training

Once you start you B+E training course (B + E driving lessons), you’ll be given essential, practical experience and quality tuition from one of our DVSA Approved Instructors. We’ll tailor your training just for you, taking into account any towing experience you’ve had in the past.

We’ll address your concerns, answer any questions you have and help you perfect towing manoeuvres. As part of your course, you’ll be shown how to couple and uncouple correctly and effectively, how to reverse and how to ensure and check your load is both legal and safe for travelling on the UK’s roads. B+E training courses are held at our Hayes Middlesex office, near Heathrow Airport.

We have excellent off road facilities where manoeuvres can be carried out and practiced to perfection. In order to receive B+E entitlement on your licence, you will need to pass an official, practical test. This will take place at our local test centre in Yeading Middlesex. The test will last for approximately 90 minutes. You will be tested on and off the road. You will be asked questions from show me/ tell me by the examiner and be required to demonstrate towing procedures and methods. When you return at the test centre, you will be asked to complete a few more moves such as uncoupling/re-coupling the trailer, just as we've shown you during the training.
