About the Trailer Test

The B+E test is approximately 1:30 mins long.  B+E tests are only conducted at HGV (bus & lorry) driving test centres with an off road manoeuvring area.

At the start of the test you will be required to read a number plate to check your eyesight. You will then be asked a number of questions about the safety of your vehicle & trailer. (We issue all our pupils with the "Show Me Tell Me" questions and aim to clarify any that are relevant to a particular vehicle.)

At the test centre you will be asked to carry out a reversing manoeuvre. Also at the test centre you will need to demonstrate how to uncouple and re-couple the trailer safely. The driving section of the test will incorporate driving on a variety of roads and traffic conditions including motorways where possible.

It will also include uphill, downhill and angled starts and a 10 minute independent driving session. You will be required to demonstrating a high standard of driving throughout.

We will teach you how to perform the reversing manoeuvre that is required for the test.  We will explain the method of reversing and all the safety checks you will need to know.

Summary

The object of this practical driving course is to train you to the standard required to pass the additional trailer category B+E car & trailer test. Training will normally be on an individual basis.

The amount of training would be dependent on any previous experience you may have with trailer towing. The vehicle and trailer used for your training will meet the DVSA requirements for dimensions and weights.
