used Jonathon at Drive Bananas to pass my B+E trailer test. The quality
of service I received throughout the day was excellent. Jonathon
managed to cram all the training and test into one day which suited my
needs. I am now able to use a trailer for my landscaping business. If I
need to send any of my employees to do the training and test I know
where I am going. Thanks Jonathon. "

Do you need to tow a trailer for business or leisure? Caravan, Horsebox, Boat or Plant and Machinery?
Our customers include Market Traders, Catering Trailer Businesses, Tree surgeons, Park rangers, Landscape gardeners, Builders, Joiners, Horse Riders, Mechanics, Sailers, Power Boaters, Stock car racers, Out Door Education and Adventure Instructors and Helicopter Pilots..
If you passed your car driving test between the 1st of January 1997 and 19th January 2013 you will have been issued a category B driving licence. This licence allows you to tow a small trailer 750KG behind a car 3500KG. Or a combination of car and trailer which weighs upto 3500KG provided certain conditions are met. Many combinations of towing vehicle and trailer exceed these limits and cannot be driven on a category B driving licence, such as a caravan, horse box or broken down car.
If you passed your car driving test after 19th January 2013 the restrictions on what you can tow have been increased.
In order to tow a heavy trailer with a car or van you must sit a further practical driving test, there is no theory test required. The BE or B+E driving test follows the same format as the vocational LGV HGV PCV driving tests. These tests are carried out at Livingston LGV test centre.
Our patient instructors are fully qualified to provide car and trailer training.
We have a towing vehicle and trailer which meets the DSA minimum test vehicle requirements and can provide full training to pass the B+E driving test.
We also offer reversing courses and advanced towing courses for those who passed prior to 1997 and already hold B+E but might have never actually towed a trailer, or simply need guidance. Ask about our trailer and caravan reversing masterclass.
We can also provide corporate fleet training and assessments for company vehicle drivers.
Please be aware that most candidates who are unsuccessful at the B+E test fail due to their general forward driving, not the reverse exercise. The standard of driving required is much higher than that of the standard learner car test.
Training is available 7 days per week from 0700 to 2200 subject to day light.
We have provided car and trailer training to customers from around the UK including drivers from Carlisle, Dumfries, Newcastle, Inverness, London, Dunbar, Fife, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Skye, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fort William, Stirling and Perth.
Our past customers include the Scottish Prison Service, University of Edinburgh, Heriot Watt University Edinburgh, Crummock, RUTS, FMS Scotland, Mike Stoane lighting, Stoats Porridge, Royal Yachting Association, St Andrews University, Arniston Estate, Tennant Company, Adwelding, Go Ape!, ITEC, Forrestry Commission Scotland, Basically Tool Hire, Edinburgh Napier University.
