Car & trailer training

Car & Trailer Training Nottingham

We offer B+E car and trailer tuition to companies and private individuals who require the B+E category added to their licence. We have an excellent first time pass rate in B+E, L.G.V Class C (rigid) and Class C+E (Artic).

If you passed your driving test after January 1st 1997, you need to pass a B+E test to tow a trailer, horsebox or caravan combination exceeding 3,500kgs.

All B+E driving courses include the use of our vehicle and trailer. We also have our own private full size training area in which we conduct the reversing exercises etc.

The on-road part is a full driving test and you will be expected to drive to a very high standard. Particular emphasis is placed upon the use of mirrors, forward planning, general observations, road positioning as well as consideration for other road users during the rest.

The B+E towing courses available are two or three days long, depending on the experience of the individual. Those who have experience with reversing will generally only need two days’ tuition, whereas those who have no experience at all with reversing a trailer may require an extra day to get to grips with this element of the course.

We also offer caravan training courses, starting from complete beginners to those who require a refresher course or help and assistance with any other aspect of towing, such as reversing.

The B+E driving test is conducted at the L.G.V driving test centre and lasts for approximately one hour.

The test consists of the following requirements:

  • The ability to carry out safety checks on your vehicle
  • The reversing exercise
  • Uncoupling and re-coupling the trailer
  • The on-road driving
