B+E Trailer Practice

Practice for B+E Trailer

There are some such B+E licence holders who are completely new or are relatively new with handling of the towing caravans and they are planning for towing a caravan for the first time. For such people, it is essential to get some training even though they have the licence to drive this combination vehicle. If you too fall in this category, you should get training from us at Dhoot Driving school.

We at Dhoot Driving School can provide you with a familiarization lesson that also includes instructions and demonstrations along with practical wheel time in your vehicle on the road. The training can also be done on our vehicles with proper insurance.

The course on Practical Caravanning Familiarization at Dhoot Driving School lasts for three hours in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The course syllabus is conducted by extremely qualified and experienced instructors at all our training centers and also includes the practice and instructions in

  • Hitching and towing in a safe and efficient manner
  • Understanding of the loading process and how it affects the towing process

With caravans becoming heavier by the day, it is now all the more relevant to get the B+E test done for the caravanners. There are many such people who wish to tow a vehicle whose combined weight is more than 3.5 tonnes, and if you are one of them, you must check the entitlement before starting with it.

If you have received the car licence after January 1997, you would need to get the B+E entitlement. The new drivers can drive a vehicle that is up to 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW) along with a 750 kgs GVW trailer that is usually far less than a caravan.

Along with the B+E entitlement, if you wish to tow an average size caravan along with an average size car, you would not exceed the limits of B+E generally. However, with the larger sized recreational vehicles and the 4X4s, that weighs around 3000 kgs, you might need to take a test for the C1+E entitlement.

If you wish to know more about the training requirements, we at Dhoot Driving School are more than delighted to help you.
