Trailer Towing Driver Training Course

Trailer Towing Courses - One Day

Trailer Towing Courses - One Day

Please note this is not a course for drivers preparing for the B+E driving test.

Drivers who passed their car driving test on or after 1 January 1997, may now need to pass a separate test (licence category B+E) to tow a trailer or caravan weighing over 750kg MAM, and where the MAM of the combination of towing vehicles in category B and trailer exceeds 3500kg. MAM is the maximum Authorised Mass (weight) also known as the gross vehicle weight. It is the weight of the trailer plus the weight of the maximum permitted payload.

This course helps drivers who may be pulling a small trailer for the first time or as a refresher course for more experienced drivers who may already have B+E, or C1+E or C+E entitlement. 
The ideal training ratio is two delegates to one instructor.  Clients will need to provide a suitable vehicle and trailer for the course.

This one-day driver training course can be held at any location in the UK or Ireland covers:
  • Trailer construction
  • Braking systems and their effect
  • Safety Considerations
  • Legal Requirements
  • Coping with emergencies and breakdowns
  • Tractor and trailer weight ratios

The practical session will include:
  • Manoeuvring and reversing exercises
  • Coupling and uncoupling procedures
  • Breakdowns and changing wheels
  • Loading and weight distribution

Driver Reports

After the course each driver will receive a Certificate of Attendance and a full written report which will highlight any areas that can be improved. If we identify any drivers who we feel would benefit from further help, their report is fast tracked and we will discreetly contact you and arrange a further 1:1 in vehicle session.
You will also receive feedback on other items such as vehicle condition, eyesight checks and any other safety related suggestions that may help.
