Category B+E (Car & Trailer) Training
If you passed your car test on or after 1 January 1997 you’ll need to pass an additional driving test in order gain a Category B+E entitlement to tow large trailers. This is an area of the driving law that has changed and consequently, many people are unaware of its existence. If you passed your car test before 1997, you should already hold the appropriate licence.
WHAT NEXT FOR YOUR CATEGORY B+E?
In order to obtain a B+E licence, you’ll need to be at least 17 years old and hold a full car (Category ‘B’) licence. A Provisional Category ‘B+E’ licence should automatically be issued with a full car licence.
A driving assessment is the next stage, enabling our instructor to establish what training is required. The training can be tailored to suit your own needs. We operate 7 days a week and have practical tests pre booked so training can be arranged around the driving test.
Your test will take place at our own test centre. Since 2012 we have been a Customer Site for Lorry, Bus and Car & Trailer tests. This means that the examiner comes to our training centre to start your driving tests so you’ll be in familiar surroundings and take your test on the same area that you practise.
When you pass your test, we’ll take your photo and add you to our ever expanding ‘WALL’. You’ll also get one of our much sought after ‘goodie bags’.
