Our courses include the use of one of our vehicles and 2600kg Box Trailer (See Pic above). Both meet the specific requirements stipulated by the Driving Standards Agency for the B+E Trailer Test, including the revised Weight requirements from Nov 2013

Our Pass Rate in 2013 Was A Fantastic 81%

This is based on first time passes from all the B+E Trailer Tests our pupils have taken in 2013 - (not just the number who eventually passed)  
The National Average for all B+E Trailer Tests in the UK in 2012 was just 51%

How do we do it ? 
We put our excellent pass rate down to several factors :

  1. Our "instructors" being fully qualified ADI's (DSA Approved Driving Instructors).  To offer the B+E Trailer Test Training Courses it is not a standard requirement to be an ADI , but we believe it makes all the difference
  2. Training is provided on 1-1 Basis (except where 2-1 training is requested and even then it will be employees from the same company) , this means no sharing with someone you don't know and no wasted time sat watching someone else practise
  3. We specialize in the B+E Trailer Licence , we don't offer any other HGV Training so all our efforts go into providing the best and most professional service in the UK
The B+E Test is a challenging experience - all across the UK approx 90% of the B+E Test failures come as a result of something the candidate did whilst driving - Not the reversing exercise or coupling up.  We have years of experience at putting right peoples driving faults and preparing them for very demanding DSA Driving Tests. 
When seeking quotes for a B+E Trailer Test Course , always ask if the instructor is a fully qualified DSA Approved Driving Instructor.  

Our Pricing philosophy 

If you are looking for the cheapest daily rate then you can exit our website now. However we won't tell you that you need a 3 or 4 day course when you can be more than prepared after just a day or two. We will give you the very best training over a 1 or 2 day period, with 1-1 tuition from a fully qualified instructor and the use of a modern easy to use vehicle coupled with a Box Trailer that is weighted to the DSA Test Requirements.
Our Training is not split into lots of short sessions where you have to keep coming back day after day. We recognise that time is precious and so we aim to get you fully prepared and hopefully passed as quickly as possible.
Our pass rate averages over 78% over the last 4 years, and in 2013 it was actually over 80%.
We believe this justifies our costs and the people we have helped in the last few years from the AA to the RAC , from Bradford City Council to Blackberry Mobile Exhibitions and from Land Rover employees to Ferrari racing car drivers we know they all left with a smile....and most importantly a pass certificate.

Comment from our Head of Training
"In my experience , someone with towing experience is usually ok with a 1 or 1.5 day course. It always amazes me when pupils tell me that other companies wanted them to do a 3 or 4 day course. Our first attempt pass rate of over 80% is complete justification to say that such long courses are just not needed."

More Information On Towing and the B+E Licence Category

Can you tow a trailer legally ?


Driving licence rules and what you can tow

The rules on what you can tow are different depending on when you passed your driving test

Licences issued from 19 January 2013

From 19 January 2013, drivers passing a category B (car and small vehicle) test can tow:
  • small trailers weighing no more than 750kg
  • trailers weighing more than 750kg, where the combined weight of the towing vehicle and the trailer isn’t more than 3,500kg
If you want to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg, when the combined weight of the towing vehicle and trailer is more than 3,500kg, you’ll have to pass a further test and get B+E entitlement on your licence.
You’ll then be able to tow trailers up to 3,500kg

Licences held from 1 January 1997

If you passed your driving test after 1 January 1997 and have an ordinary category B (car) licence, you can drive either:
  • a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes or 3,500 kilograms (kg) Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM (with a combined weight of up to 4,250kg in total)
  • a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as it is no more than the unladen or ‘kerb’ weight of the towing vehicle (with a combined weight of up to 3,500kg in total)
For anything heavier you need to take a category B+E driving test.

Licences held before 1 January 1997

If you passed your car test before 1 January 1997 you are generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8.25 tonnes MAM.
This is the weight of a vehicle or trailer including the maximum load that can be carried safely when it’s being used on the road.
You also have entitlement to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kg MAM

Towing heavier combinations (Vehicle weight over 3500kg)

If you want to tow heavier combinations, you’ll have to first apply for provisional entitlement to the new C1+E entitlement. You’ll then have to pass the category C theory test and C1+E practical test.
Once you’ve done this you can drive vehicles and trailers with a combined weight of up to 12 tonnes MAM.

Gross Trailer Weight

This is the max weight a trailer is permitted to carry , including its own weight. So if you have a trailer that weighs 700kg but has a Gross Max Weight of 2500kg then the latter is classed as its real weight for legal towing purposes
Gross MAM of your Vehicle & Trailer = Max Gross Vehicle Weight + Max Gross Trailer Weight

The possible Penalties for Towing Without a Valid Licence
  • 9 Penalty Points (3 For the missing Licence entitlement and 6 for no Insurance - owing to fact you are driving without a licence)
  • A Maximum fine of approx £5000
  • Possible impounding of your vehicle and trailer
  • Employer fines of up to £1000 per employee prosecution

Is it worth the risk ?

Even if you believe you are entitled to tow legally our advice is to get some “trailer training” if you have little or no experience before you consider towing anything. Our “introduction to towing” courses are informative and enjoyable. It will give you the chance to gain some basic skills that you can demonstrate when using your own trailer without the fear of looking stupid.

The B+E car and trailer driving test

  • The car and trailer test lasts for approximately 1 hour 30 mins and is based on a mixture between the standard car driving test and the LGV (Large Goods Vehicle) test.
  • The test comprises elements at the test centre and on the public road:
  • Ability to undertake safety checks on your vehicle and trailer
  • A reversing exercise
  •  A 60 minute road drive, demonstrating advanced observation, use of speed and management of space to a very high standard.
  •  An Independent Drive (10 mins as part of the 60 min on-road drive)
  •  Unhitching and re-coupling

Course Information

  • Without proper training, many people fail the B+E test on the standard of their road driving, so all trainers are DSA Approved Driving Instructors . You will find us friendly and professional, we are also extremely patient and believe that learning should be fun.
  •  Irrespective of your previous towing experience, we will prepare you not just for the test (if you need to take it) but to tow with skill, confidence and safety.
  •  Reversing exercise training usually takes place on private ground.
  • Intensive courses are available midweek or weekend. Lasting a full day, this is normally sufficient time to prepare people for B+E test success and beyond.
  • Training is usually provided on a 1:1 basis, though you are welcome to share courses with a friend or colleague when appropriate. Discounts are offered for this.
  •  All training is conducted using our vehicle and trailer , although you are welcome to use your own vehicle and / or trailer if you prefer. We allow a 10% discount from any of the course prices below if you use your own vehicle.

Please read what some of our previous customers think :-
Julie Broughton
Thank you Chris. I know I didn't want to take your advice initially when I called you , more fool me as I went and took a trailer test without much training. After failing (Badly) I came along to you in shame but you were very friendly and never made me feel silly. If you need a trainer with LOTS of patience choose Chris. Thank you Thank you Thank you !!
Frank Jeffery - Chingford Building Comp Many thanks Chris for your efforts over the last 3 weeks. We didn't need another "pull" from the local police and I can sleep much easier now that all my guys are "legal". Cheers
Sarah Connor - Jump Logistics, Newbury Chris, we just wanted to pass on our thanks for taking complete control of our trailer training needs. Everyone involved said how enjoyable their courses were as well as over-flowing with useful content. I know personally how much I have learned (and how much I had forgotten about safe driving!) We will be passing on your details to all the associated drivers we have to make sure they are aware of the B+E Licence needs - Thank you
James Edwards - Bicester Thanks for everything Chris. I am proof that there is almost no chance of passing the B+E test without proper training. As you know I took a test last month on my own and failed with 4 serious errors ! I thought I knew it all given that I have been pulling trailers on the farm for 5 years. My one day course with you was perfect. To start at 8am and end at 4pm with a Test Certificate and just 3 minor faults was just a brilliant result. I would say to anyone who thinks they don't need proper training - Think again.
