Trailer Towing Training

The rules on what you can legally tow are different depending on when you passed your 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.

The government have suspended all driving tests for car and trailer apart from ‘critical worker’ driving tests. You can apply for a critical worker driving test here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-driving-tests-and-theory-tests. If you are successful in getting a driving test in Norwich, we would be happy to help you, but all other training courses are cancelled until DVSA allow their examiners to return to work and social distancing rules are relaxed. 

If you have any other queries about car and trailer training and tests, please feel free to email us at carol@mdtnorwich.co.uk. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

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.
