Trailer Training Courses



A.B.C. School of Motoring offer specialised trailer training courses in the North-East for drivers who hold a Full Driving License (category B) and want to obtain a licence that allows them to tow a trailer (category B+E)

Did you know that it’s a legal requirement for drivers who passed their driving test on or after 1st January 1997 to pass a separate car + trailer driving test if you want to tow a caravan or trailer over 750kgs in weight?

You’re also limited to vehicles not exceeding 3.5 tonnes MAM (maximum authorised mass) 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.

At A.B.C. School of Motoring we provide one-to-one tuition courses to help you pass the car and trailer test so that you can tow a trailer or caravan etc without fear of breaking the law and risking prosecution.

We are happy to take two students together if you prefer, but two is the maximum for any one course. Any course over more than one day can be taken with a break in between each day if necessary. This will allow students who want time to practise the exercises learnt on the first day, to continue with confidence on the second or third day of training. To learn more about the courses we offer click here.

Do you need to take the B+E test?

The car and trailer test (B+E) is based on the lorry driving test and duration is approximately one hour.
All B+E tests include vehicle safety questions, an off-road reverse maneuver, a controlled stop, plus uncoupling and coupling of the trailer, as well as towing a trailer on the road.

If you are towing caravans, large trailers, boats or horse boxes and you don’t have the correct entitlement to drive the B+E category on your licence you run the risk of getting a hefty fine plus 9 points on your licence. (3 points for a ‘no category’ offence and 6 points for ‘no insurance’)

Can you afford to take the risk? Does your job rely on having the correct legal requirements? If so, and you live in the North-East then please give us a call and we can arrange a course for you soon.
