If you passed your Driving Test after January 1st 1997, your Licence does not cover you to drive a vehicle and trailer with a combined weight in excess of 3500kg
This means that you are legally required to take an additional test (the DSA B+E Test) if you tow a trailer with a 4x4, van or pick-up.

Towtutor's ADI instructors have an excellent pass rate for the B+E Test, with many satisfied customers since the inception of the Test in 1997.

"Many thanks for all your help and I appreciate all the time you put in",    Sophie

Training given in all aspects required to pass the B+E Test:-

  • Initial assessments given to estimate your training needs
  • Competitive rates, with or without your vehicle/trailer
  • Flexibility of time and travel to give you optimum pass success
  • Road driving, set piece manoeuvres, reversing exercise, deceleration lane test
  • Theory questions covered in detail
