Have a look through the list but if you still have any questions about trailer training please don’t hesitate to contact us.
I have a little/no towing experience, how long will a course take me to get to a standard to pass the B+E towing test?Read answer
For someone with little to no towing experience we recommend a 14 hour course prior to taking your test. This will give enough time to learn the skills and really build your confidence. If however after 14 hours you feel that you need a little more time then that is fine and we can plan a further half/full day in with you.
I already have some towing experience, how long a course do you recommend for me to get me ready for a B+E test?Read answer
For an experienced candidate we recommend that you spend 3.5 hours with our trainer on a pre-assessment session. Our trainer will check all aspects of your driving and carry out a mock test. Following the mock test tuition our trainer will discuss any points which may cause a candidate to be unsuccessful in the test and advise if any further training is required.

On the day of your trailer training course you will need to bring with you:
- NI Number

What is the payment policy?Read answer
We will require full payment to be made prior to the day of your course. We can take cash, credit or debit card payments or BACS payments for businesses. Unfortunately we are unable to take cheque payments.
I need to cancel my course – what is your cancellation policy?Read answer
We require notice of any cancellation 14 days prior to the date of your course. If received 14 days or more prior to your course you will receive a refund. Unfortunately if fewer than 14 days are given then full payment must be made. Of course we can look to change your booking to another time to suit you without incurring a charge.
I am coming on a towing with confidence course and would like to bring my own trailer+ vehicle combination. What do I need to bring with me?Read answer
If you want to bring your town trailer + vehicle combination then please make sure you bring:
- Mirror extenders to fit your vehicle
- Proof of insurance
- Proof of MOT for the vehicle(if required)
Please note that if you are training to take a B+E test then we recommend you train in and take the test in our vehicle and trailer as the rules and regulations that the rig must comply with for the test conditions is complex.
Where do I take the test and how do I book it?Read answer
You will take the test in Lincoln or Grimsby and much of your road practice will take place in Lincoln or Grimsby to familiarise yourself with the roads.
We will book the test for you at a time and date to suit you.
