B+E Trailer Training

B+E Trailer Training


If you have a driving licence held before 1st January 1997, you can legally tow a trailer as long as the combined weight of the vehicle and trailer are under 8.25 tonnes. If your driving licence was issued after 1st January 1997 with a standard category B, you can legally tow a trailer as long as the combined weight of the trailer and vehicle towing is under 3.5 tonnes. This includes caravans and horseboxes.


WDS can help by offering B+E (car & trailer) Training which will allow you to legally tow any caravan, trailer or horsebox and prepare you confidently for your B+E Driving Test.

We will help you prepare by practicing reversing manoeuvering, asking vehicle safety questions, couple & uncouple exercises, and once you are feeling confident we’ll accompany you to your test.
We are more than happy to use your own car and trailer for the test if suitable. Plus if you need refresher training with your caravan and trailer we are more than happy to help you out with this.
