Are you towing illegally?
If like me, you were unlucky enough to pass your driving test after the 1st January 1997 then you will only be entitled to drive Category B vehicles with your driving licence. What this means is that you cannot tow any trailer over 750kg on your current car licence, this could limit you from towing some caravans and horseboxes or even a loaded car trailer and you will have to take an additional driving test in order to gain the B+E entitlement.
So, what is the B+E trailer test and what do you need to do to get started?
The driving test itself is pretty much like the normal driving test, as in you will be expected to drive to a high standard but this time the driving element of the driving test will last for around 50 minutes so you need to be able maintain that standard throughout the test. As part of the B+E driving test you will need to carry out an independent drive using local road signs.
