Sutton Driving Towing training for trailer b+e licence

Trailer towing training B+E


SuttonDriving provides: Towing training and assessments for:

, horsebox, caravan, boats, farm equipment

or any piece of equipment which needs towing for licence category B+E.

Notice of Changes to the B+E Towing Test

From 15th Nov 2013 the minimum gross weight (minimum real weight)
of the trailer and load was changed to a minimum of 800kgs.

Licence category  B+E covers vehicles upto 3.5T towing a braked trailer over 750kgs.
For specific towing limits it is best to consult the vehicles handbook. 

Example of a Caravan Owner:

If your Vehicle and Caravan (and luggage / passengers etc) weigh over 3500kgs     then you will need a B+E licence entitlement too.

Consider this example:

Land Rover Freelander 2 (MAM) 2505kgs + Caravan 1250kgs  = 3755 kgs,
(this includes all passengers and luggage)

For this combination you will need a licence category B+E  because the overall mass is over 3.5T.

The possible Penalties for Towing Without a Valid Licence

  • 9 Penalty Points (3 For the missing Licence entitlement and 6 for no Insurance - owing to fact you are driving without a licence)
  • A Maximum fine of approx 5000
