Introduction to Car & Trailer B + E Training Course (8 hours)

At Viamaster Training, we have a number of courses available for Car and Trailer drivers whether you are a novice or you just want familiarisation training. See how the experts at Viamaster Training can support you in achieving the qualifications you need to operate vehicles like trailers in the transport and logistics industry.

There is no need to complete a driving test as the Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency (DVSA) changed this in 2021 which means the B+E category is automatically added to your licence, however everyone is encouraged to complete some training before towing for the first time to ensure safety on the road.

Please review the government guidance for more support to ensure you are towing legally:
