If you passed your driving test after the 1st January 1997 (including re-tests) you must pass a practical category B+E test to tow a trailer which exceeds 750kg on a vehicle weighing 3,500kg; or vehicle and trailer/caravan/horsebox combination over 3,500kg.

The standard "B" licence will allow you to tow a combination (vehicle and trailer) with a Gross Train Weight (GTW)  that does not exceed 3,500kg, providing that the MAM (Maximum Authorised Mass) of the trailer does not exceed the unladen mass of the towing vehicle.

All B+E courses include the use of our vehicle and trailer for B+E training and test purposes. All training is carried out on known DSA test routes.

The B+E trailer towing test is based on the LGV driving test and lasts for approximately 75 minutes.

The B+E test consists of the following requirements:

  • The ability to carry out safety checks on your vehicle and trailer
  • The reversing exercise
  • The drive
  • Uncoupling and recoupling
