You will need to pass an additional driving test in category B+E if you wish to tow a caravan, horsebox trailer ect which exceeds these weights.

The Car and trailer test (B+E) lasts for approximately 90 minutes. The towing test includes:

  • Vehicle safety questions
  • An off-road reverse manoeuvre
  • Safety inspection
  • Uncoupling and coupling of the trailer
  • Driving
  • High standard on-road drive to include motorways

Further Information

For car drivers who have limited or no experience in towing, an extended course may be offered enabling the driver to gain more experience before sitting their test.

The B+E Test is the DVSA practical driving test for car and trailer. No medical examination and no additional theory test is required.

The test is regarded by the DVSA as the first step to driving Large Goods Vehicles and is examined accordingly.

The duration of the test is about an hour and a half. the candidate will need to demonstrate a number of different exercises including a reversing exercise, coupling, uncoupling and a controlled stop. In addition to the trailer manoeuvring exercises the candidate must show the examiner skill and competency on the highway including junctions, lane discipline, mirror & signalling timing, hill starts, angled starts etc. covering a variety of different roads.

During the test you will be asked a number questions called ‘show me, tell me’ (i.e. Show me how you would check that your vehicle & trailer doors are secure) it must be answered either verbally or practically demonstrated.

Successfully passing this test gives the category B+E that allows driver to tow a trailer up to a gross weight (trailer including load) of 3500kg.(3.5 tons). This means a vehicle and trailer with a gross train weight of 7,000kg.(7 tons)

Pupil’s Reviews

Recommended Intensive Driving School, Manchester

After three previous unsuccessful attempts with a well-known driving school I had almost given up on driving, however, after a four day intensive course with Rob, after two years without any other professional instruction, I passed at the first time of trying.  Rob was incredibly patient with myself who was incredibly anxious and I imagine was not the easiest person to teach!  I passed today with only two minor faults and am absolutely over the moon! The entire booking process was smooth and easy and the car was impeccable, as was Rob’s professionalism.  Many thanks to all involved, from the lady who took my booking to Rob and Paul themselves.

Having previously had some lessons with another driving school, I couldn’t believe the difference that was made in my driving with Rob from NWCC. Rob’s patience, knowledge, coaching skills, and friendly approach helped me considerably. I passed my driving test this morning with 1 minor. Thanks again Rob for all your support
