Trailer Test Training - 2 Days (B+Entitlement)

Our 2 day course is suitable for the complete novice and will be adequate to prepare most individuals for the DSA test. (Our first time pass rate is currently over 95%).  The course covers all aspects of the test including trailer safety checks, reversing and driving on the road. You will be taught by an experienced instructor who has worked with trailers and articulated vehicles for many years. NEW- There's more to towing a trailer than passing the test -

For those of you looking for horsebox training - we now use an Ifor Williams 510 horsebox. This allows us to demonstrate the correct procedures for placing breeching bars, breast bars and partitions to ensure correct nose weight and stability! As well as loading and unloading practice with our resident horses!

DO I NEED TO TAKE THE TEST?
If you sat your car test after 1 Jan 1997 you will not have the 'E' entitlement on your licence. In simple terms this means you may only tow a trailer up to 750kg behind a car. If you wish to tow anything bigger such as a horse box, plant trailer or some larger caravans, you will need to sit a Driving Standards Agency test for car and trailer (category B+E).

If you already have the entitlement but have never towed before we strongly recommend you attend our trailer safety course.
