Caravan Courses, Towing & Handling

Changes to the law as of 20th September 2021

We offer B+E, C1+E, D1+E and Caravan Towing Courses

Following Government changes to towing regulations from 20th September 2021, you no longer need to take a B&E test.

You can tow a trailer with a total weight of 3500 kgs giving you a gross vehicle weight of 7 tonnes.

If you need to tow a vehicle & trailer combination in excess of this you will need category C1&E which would give you a train weight of 12 tonnes.

Trailer Training & Towing Courses are available for all categories.

  • Plant & Machinery
  • Car Transporters
  • Tree Surgeons
  • Horsebox Driver Training

Our Caravan training courses are specifically designed for all users who want to update their skills or learn how to tow Caravans correctly.

Courses include manoeuvring on our DVSA approved off-road training area for perfecting reversing procedures, coupling and uncoupling, on-road assessment and advice where necessary.

To book your course please call 01424 432200

Just passed my B+E trailer test first time, with no minors – very pleased!!  A great bunch of folks that helped me get through the test with confidence. Like many of us, we have been driving for years so going back to ‘driving school’ can be daunting!  Jim made me feel comfortable and explained all aspects of the test to me clearly so I felt completely ready on the day. Paula is great in the office, very patient with arranging dates and times around work schedules and all the staff are very knowledgeable  I would really recommend these guys!
