The training and test
When driving licence categories significantly changed on 1st January 1997, the need to pass a B+E test to tow large trailers has increased in recent years.
The B+E test was originally, and still is, based on the LGV practical driving test. The general reversing layout is the same, there is an un-coupling and re-coupling exercise and at least 50 minutes of driving time is on the road. The practical B+E trailer test takes around 1 hour 15 minutes to complete.
As B+E candidates are already full licence holders, the examiners are looking for a higher standard of driving, awareness and planning whilst towing a trailer and demonstrating a thorough understanding of the Highway Code.
Our courses are designed to fully prepare you in all elements of the test whilst gaining a life skill for your future towing requirements.
