Are you towing legally? Did you know that if you passed your driving test on or after 01/01/1997 you can only drive a car or van up to 3500kg MAM to tow a trailer up to 750kg MAM (or tow a trailer exceeding 750kg if the combined MAM of the trailer and towing vehicle doesn't exceed 3500kg)? If you want to tow anything heavier, you will need to pass the Cat B+E test, this includes towing caravans and horseboxes.
If you are unsure what you can legally tow, we are more than happy to check for you. Alternatively you can check your entitlements on www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence - remember towing loads that exceeds what you are entitled to is a criminal offence.
DTS Driver Training provides car and trailer (B+E) training in our brand new DVSA-approved trailer to help you pass your Cat B+E test.
RECOMMENDED SET COURSES (Please note that 2.5 hours of your course is reserved for test day, and you are responsible for paying the £115 DVSA test fee which we will book for you):

Trailer Training T&C’s:
- Full payments must be made at booking, including the DVSA test fee.
- We can only determine the course dates and times once we have booked the DVSA test for you. This is so that we can ensure that the test date and time runs straight after your course.
- If you wanted to use your own vehicle to tow our trailer for the test, please ring us to check that it meets the DVSA requirements (discount applied if using your own vehicle with our trailer).
