On Sunday 4th March 2018 Howe To Tow will be holding a talk about the B+E trailer licence and costs involved.

For those who don't need the test, tips for reversing and coupling of the trailer.

The talk starts at 19.30 and will be held at The Waterside Centre, Riverside, Guildford, GU1 1LW.

The talk is free and open to anyone who would like to know about towing horsebox and other trailers.

February. Going along ok with 10 tests, 5 first time passes, 4 retests (one failed a second time) and one first time fail test.

Great start to 2018 with 10 out of  13 first time passes for January. 4 of those were clean sheets!!

Next test slots from 28th March . Next training slots from 2nd March.

Great  End To 2017 with 9 out of  9 passes for December. 8 of those were first time passes.

7 out of 8 first time passes for November 2017.

So far 2017 has been very busy and very successful keeping up our very high pass rate. See test results pass & fail.

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.

 

 

Great finish to 2016 with 5 first time passes.

Test results for October 2016. 12 tests, 8 First Time Passes, 1 retest pass and 3 failed tests.

15 out of 15 test passes for September 2016.

August 2016   14 tests , 13 first time passes, 1 fail.

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.

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.
