The event below is now fully booked.

Howe To Tow along with Matt Price and Nick Martin two other local trailer instructors  are holding a trailer reversing day on Saturday 16th June. This is to give people who are worried about reversing trailers a chance to have a go and learn whats is about. You will need to book a times slot. The sessions are 90 mins long and cost £30. Training is on a 2 to 1 basis so you will be paired up with another person or do it with a friend.

It will take place at Farnborough Town Football club, Cherrywood Road, Farnborough, GU14 8UD.

May 2018  14 tests, 8 first time passes. 2 retest pass. 4 fails.

April 2018   17 tests, 11 first time passes. 4 retest passes and 2 fails.

March 2018 15 tests, 9 first time passes, 1 retest pass and 5 fails.

Next training slots from 8th June. Next test slots from 11th June. 2018.

Howe To Tow also offers lessons to people who already hold the B+E category  but require help with reversing, road work, coupling and uncoupling of a trailer or caravan to build their confidence when towing.



Alan passed first time in both manual and automatic in August 2016

March 2016 was a first.  Natalie was our first B+E pass for a wheel chair user with modified hand controls!!

B+E and D1+E tests have all increased in number during 2015/16. Horsebox trailers, minidigger trailers, cage trailers, chipper trailers, boat trailers and Minibuses with trailers are the most common reason for taking the B+E and D1+E tests.

Why do you need lessons to pass your B+E trailer test?  Because you need to understand how and what the examiner is looking for from you. What are they going mark you on and why. Why do they ask you to pullover in a particular place? What are you being marked on when you move off?

What do people fail on. Going too slowly for the road conditions, blocking a pedestrian crossing, beckoning someone to cross the road and moving off whilest being overtaken are just some of the things people fail the B+E test. Have lessons and understand what is expected of you so you pass your test.

Trailers used by Howe To Tow for all training and the test will meet the new loaded trailer regulations which came into force in November 2013.

Trailer Instructor in Guildford, Hampshire, and Surrey

Do you require a B+E licence (car+trailer)  to tow your trailer?

Any driver passing their B (car) test after 1997 will have to take a seperate test.

How do you go about taking the the B+E  test and what does it entail.

The test takes about one & a half hours, involving safety check questions, a reversing exercise, an extended drive finishing off with a uncoupling and coupling exercise.
