Our B+E courses will provide students with the knowledge, skills and ability that they need to confidently and securely drive a car & trailer on the road. Our Familiarisation training takes 3.5 hours to complete and is ideal for those candidates who have previous experience in driving a B+E vehicle on the road and want to brush up on their towing skills.
We also have 7-hour and 10.5-hour courses available for those students who have less experience and confidence in driving a B+E category vehicle.
All of our B+E training courses are taught by highly experienced and professional instructors, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring you are able to safely and securely operate a B+E category vehicle.
