B+E Trailer Training

Motoring 2 Day offers B+E trailer training by a DVSA Approved Driving Instructor in Suffolk at its base in Elmswell which is between Bury st Edmunds and Stowmarket.

My Courses include the use of my tuition vehicle and my trailer for the training and test and are conducted on a 1 to 1 basis. Should you wish to use your own vehicle this can also be arranged.


What Can I Tow?

The legality around towing a Trailer or Caravan changed from the 1st January 1997, if you passed your driving test prior to this then your licence permits to drive a vehicle and trailer combination of up to 8,250kg MAM. If you however passed your driving test on or after 1st January 1997 then your license permits you to drive a car and trailer combination up to 3500kg MAM. if you wish to drive a combination over this upto 7000kg then you will need to sit the B+E test.

MAM stands for 'Maximum Authorised Mass', this is where most get confused, this is the maximum weight of the car and the maximum weight of the trailer added together, the actual weight of the combination is irrelevant in this case. You can find these weights on the weight plates in your vehicle and on the Trailer/Caravan.

What does the B+E test consist of?

There are 6 parts to the B+E trailer test which will all be covered in your training, they are as follow:-

  • An eyesight check
  • A Show me and a Tell me vehicle safety Question
  • Reversing your vehicle and Trailer around a set course
  • General Driving Ability (approx. 50 mins)
  • Independent Drive (following signs for approx. 10 mins)
  • Uncouple and recouple the trailer





Passed my test today first time with 0 faults. Would never of been able to achieve this without the help and support from Chris. Would highly recommend Chris' excellent tuition. Thanks again Chris.
