Trailer Towing Training


We have not been permitted to conduct driving lessons, and the driving test centre has been closed during each of the lockdowns. We are currently working to book in all of those candidates who had their tests cancelled because of the lockdown, then we will be able to book in new candidates.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please call us or email and we can let you know approximate dates for training and a test.

The rules on what you can legally tow are different depending on when you passed your driving test. Click here 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.

Training, tailored to your requirements

(Hourly rate £40 + vat)

If you are very confident in your towing ability, you might feel that you don’t need much training. We invite you to book two hours of initial training, then have a discussion with your instructor about how much additional training (if any) you might need, then arrange to book your driving test.

Alternatively if you just want to arrange your lessons two or three hours at a time, so that you can fit your training and test around your other commitments, then we will be happy to help you with this.

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 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.

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.

Additional information

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.
