What is involved and what it will cost you for B+E Training
Becoming qualified and gaining you category E licence entitlement to tow is a straightforward process and can be carried out within your own time-frame.

You can take tuition using your own vehicle with which you propose to tow once you are qualified to do so. Or alternatively you can use our vehicles for you tuition. Our fees for both options are shown in the box to the right.

Training will be carried out on regular public highways alongside our fully qualified training instructor, and also certain manoeuvres will need to be carried out away from the public roads.

We always recommend one on one training but do offer the facility for two or more drivers to share the training time for a small additional cost.

We can assess your current standard of driving when towing - this takes place over a two hour period and will cover all the disciplines required for the category E test. We only provide this assessment service using our own vehicle.

Once we feel you have achieved the necessary driving standard and levels of competency for the final test we can provide you with appropriate trailer hire for use during your test. The actual category E test is carried out by the DSA in accordance with the current legislation on both public roads and also off road at regional test locations. Please click HERE to view information about the category E test. (PDF fact sheet).

Once you have passed the test you will be legally able to tow any load above 750KG or a combined towing and vehicle weight in excess of 3500KG. It may be necessary to inform your insurance company about the load you intend to tow to ensure that you are adequately covered.
