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!
