Trailer Towing Training
The rules on what you can legally tow are different depending on when you passed your car driving test. Click here https://www.gov.uk/towing-with-car to find out if you need to take a separate driving test for towing a trailer.
BE licence. 3.5t vehicle & trailer
Whether you need training to be able to pass a BE test, or you already hold the licence and just want some refresher training we can help.
We offer a range of courses to suit your needs and your experience.
One day intensive Course
(6 hours including time on the driving test)
£240 + vat, plus driving test fee of £115 (total £403)
This course is suitable for someone who is confident in towing, for example if you have previously successfully reversed and towed a small trailer (e.g. a 750kg trailer as permitted on a car licence) or you already hold a tractor and trailer licence.
One and half day intensive or semi-intensive course
(9 hours including time on the driving test)
£360 + vat, plus driving test fee of £115 (total £547)
This course is suitable for someone who feels confident in their driving ability and feel that they have the ability to pick up the skills needed quickly.
Two day intensive or semi intensive course
(12 hours including time on the driving test)
£480 + vat, plus driving test fee of £115 (total £691)
This course is suitable for any driver regardless of their towing experience.
C1E licence. 7.5t vehicle & trailer
If you already hold a Category C1 licence and want to be able to tow a trailer behind your 7.5t vehicle you can take a C1E driving test. (you may need to apply for a provisional C1E licence if you don’t already have it). You can also take this test if you have a Category C licence, you want to be able to tow a trailer but don’t want to learn to drive an Articulated lorry. (If you already hold a Category C licence, you will not need to apply for a provisional C1E licence). An average course for this licence is one and a half days (9 hours including time on the driving test) £360 + vat, plus driving test fee of £115 (total £547) but we can tailor a course to suit you if you already have towing experience.
Training, tailored to your requirements
You are welcome to book two or three hours training at a time, so that you can fit training around your other commitments, then you can have a discussion with your instructor about how much additional training to take.
Training can be taken on consecutive days, or if preferred, lessons can be booked two or three hours at a time to suit your schedule.
If you would prefer to use your own car for the driving test, we can help you with this, but we would need to check that the vehicle is suitable for the driving test before making a booking.
If you have a disability and need to present an adapted vehicle for the driving test, we will be happy to help you use your own vehicle.
In the event that you do not pass the driving test, we can arrange practice time before a retest for you.
