Make sure you are legal to tow.

Do you tow a trailer or caravan? Know the law or it could cost you your licence.

Many people are unaware of the laws regarding towing caravans and trailers and may be breaking them without even realising - running the risk of being fined or even disqualified from driving. The technical details are quite complicated but basically if you passed you driving test after 1 January 1997 and have an ordinary Category B (car) licence, you may not be able to legal tow horse boxes, caravans or large trailers unless you pass the car plus trailer test (Category B + E). This also applies if you have been disqualified from driving and regained your licence after 1st January 1997, as you will have lost your entitlement to tow trailers over a certain weight and will have to gain a Category B+E licence before you can legally do so again.

At Around the Bend, we provide specialist nationwide trailer training to allow you to gain your Category B+E licence if you need one for either towing a trailer or a caravan. If you are not sure if you need a Category B+E licence, simply give us a call and we’ll let you know.

Trailer training courses are available locally to you and are charged out at either a half day or full day rate.
