Can you tow a trailer?

You no longer need to complete an additional test to tow a trailer with your car or van. As of the 16th of December 2021 the DVLA will have updated your driving licence records to allow you to tow a trailer.

Can you still get trailer training ?

Yes absolutely, despite no longer needing to sit a test to gain the B+E licence, it is advisable that you undertake some formal training to satisfy the requirements of your insurance company.

For those operating trailers on a commercial basis there have been discussions regarding an official competence scheme to demonstrate competence to insurers, however this has not yet been launched.


How much does it cost? 

The cost of trailer training depends upon how confident you are and how long it will take to get you to an acceptable level of competence.  The average cost is between £120 and £250, however you can get an accurate quotation by booking an assessment drive for only £35. This is then refunded if you book your lessons and with us.
