The B+E test will consist of the following elements:

  • Eligibility Check: The examiner will need to see your driving licence (plastic bit)
  • Eyesight Test: You will be asked to read a car number plate 20.5 meters distance (If you are unable to do this then the test will be recorded as a fail and will not proceed any further)
  • Question & Answers: the examiner will ask you 5 show & tell questions from the list of 15 questions provided by the DVSA (Incorrect answers to all 5 questions will result in a fail)
  • Reversing Manoeuvre: You will be asked to complete a specific S reversing manoeuvre to demonstrate your safe control of the car and trailer.
  • Uncoupling & Recoupling Procedure: This task is quite simple but you are required to prove that you can maintain through set routines complete control of your trailer.
  • The Drive: You will be asked to drive the car and trailer on various roads for approx. 50 minutes. This will include a 10 minute independent drive. This is test of your driving ability. You can fail the test if the examiner feels your driving skills do not meet the DVSA driving test standard.

What our pupils say

We’re extremely proud of our reviews and that our pupils have a great time learning.

Kev’s amazing. Having never towed before I should have gone for a 2-day course but only had time for 1 day. Kev sent me plenty of material beforehand to swat up on so the day could be spent doing the practical side of the B+E towing test. On the day it was very clear straight away that I had chosen then right man for the job to teach me. I passed 1st time with no minors!! Trust me when I say this it is a true testament to Kev’s tuition, not my driving skills.

Thanks again for a really good day!! Off now to shop for a caravan.

Absolutely brilliant instructor, relaxed and friendly and great advice! I had never towed, reversed or coupled a trailer before in my life and had no idea how many sessions to book. Kev did the 2 hour assessment with me and recommended a 3 hour session then the day course and test and it worked! First time pass!!

Having towed for quite a while I decided to take the 1 day course/test and passed first time!! Kev is a great guy who put my nerves at ease from the get go. He meticulously went through every step of the test and answered all my questions, as stupid as some of them may have been. His training technique is very affirmative and effective, I would highly recommend anyone to use Kev for their B+E and any other driver training!
