Driver Training

All of our instructors are DVSA approved and are on the voluntary register. We can deliver the following driver training courses to DVSA standards for practical test.

B + E Car & Trailer

Significant changes in driver regulations from January 1st 1997 dictates that anyone passing their driving test after this date is unable to tow a trailer (including caravan & horsebox) without first of all passing a Category B+E trailer towing test which is carried out under similar conditions to a LGV driving test.

Drivers seeking the licence entitlement Category B+E should naturally be more experienced as they have been driving longer than a novice.

 

Candidates do need to remember that this is an actual test with a DVSA Examiner driving on the public roads and not simply a manoeuvring exercise in a yard. Candidates will be asked five questions, which will be a combination of 'show me' and 'tell me'. A driving fault will be recorded for each incorrect answer to a maximum of four faults. If the candidate answers all five questions incorrectly, a serious fault will be recorded.
