Trailer Training Lincolnshire
We offer B+E car and trailer training at our Lincolnshire based training centre to prepare you to pass the DVSA driving test or just to improve your driving whilst towing skills.
Click here to find out whether you need to take the B+E test
If you are unclear whether you need to take your B+E test or not please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will work through all your details with you to help you to work out what,if any, type of training you need.
However just because according to your driving licence, you can legally tow this doesn’t mean you are confident to tow, reverse, load and couple/uncouple your trailer safely. We also offer Towing with Confidence courses at our site in West Ashby to help you to improve your towing skills even if you don’t need to pass the B+E test.
Our vehicle, trailer and Instructor
On the day you will be taught by Barry. Not only is he a fully trained trailer trainer but as an ex Policeman and advanced driver training instructor, with numerous years under his belt you are in very safe and patient hands.
Training for the test exercises is conducted at our private full size training area in West Ashby near Horncastle, Lincolnshire in our vehicle and trailer.
Is it worth the risk not having trailer training?
Be mindful of the possible penalties for towing without a valid licence.
- 9 Penalty Points (3 for the missing license entitlement and 6 for no insurance – owing to the fact you are driving without a license).
- A maximum fine of up to £5,000
- Possible impounding of your vehicle and trailer
- Employer fines of up to £1,000 per employee prosecution.
Not to mention any injury you may do to yourself or other road users and the damage you might do to your expensive caravan, trailer or the occupants of your horse box….
Even if you believe you are entitled to tow legally, if you have little or no experience, our advice is to get some trailer training before you consider towing anything. Our half day Towing with Confidence courses are informative and enjoyable.
