B+E Means "Car or Van, towing a trailer, caravan or horsebox". The B+E (car and trailer) test was first introduced after changes made to the driving licence laws which came into effect on 1st January 1997. Therefore, if you passed after this date in order to drive a car or van towing a trailer (or caravan or horsebox) with a gross train weight exceeding 3500kgs you are required by law to take B+E test (normally towing a trailer weighing over 750Kgs gross weight).
The B+E test will be conducted in three parts- Reverse, un-couple couple-up, Road Drive. These tests are carried out at either our own LGV (HGV) test centre or at local test centre, by LGV examiners authorised by the DRIVER and VEHICLE STANDARDS AGENCY (DVSA). The test follows the same Vocational test format as an articulated LGV (HGV) test.
Many of our customers already hold the B+E licence category, but want to do some training to learn how handle and reverse a trailer correctly or just to gain confidence. We can design a training course to suit the individuals needs. These courses have been highly praised by all who have taken them.
