B+E Training & Tests (Trailer Towing)
Whether 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 training to give you a little more confidence when you’re towing a horse box or caravan, we have a training course that will suit you.
We have years of experience in getting people through their various driving tests, so you can rely on us to get you through your trailer towing tests quickly and to a very high standard.
Our driving instructors are friendly, patient and very reliable. In addition, they have years of experience in towing trailers. We’re based in Llay, Wrexham and provide trailer towing training across Wrexham and the surrounding areas.
We are also based 1 minute from the Wrexham HGV test centre in Llay.
About the Trailer Towing Training Course
Do you need a B+E car and trailer test? If you passed your 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 licence 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.
30 minute Free Assessment
This will consist of 3o minutes out in our vehicle to assess your general drive whilst towing and your reversing ability. We will then advise you on a suitable course for your needs to give you the best possible chance of passing your trailer test first time!
Each course will cover all aspects of the B+E trailer test including:
- The reversing exercise
- The coupling and uncoupling process
- All aspects of trailer safety
2 - 3 days.
We do try to be as flexible as possible to fit around your needs.
