So ... can you tow?

Passed your driving test before 1st January 1997? Then you are entitled to tow from your vehicle. If you passed your driving test after this date, you are limited by law to vehicles of up to 3.5 tonnes Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) with additional towing of a a trailer of up to 750kgs, or a vehicle and trailer combination up to 3.5 tonnes MAM providing the MAM of the trailer doesn't exceed the unladen mass of the towing vehicle.

If you wish to tow a caravan or trailer combination which exceeds these weight limits, you will need to pass an additional driving test for the B+E classification. The Car and Trailer Test lasts for approximately one hour. The towing test element (B+E) is based on a number of elements including: Safety questions on the vehicle, driving on the Highway, uncoupling and coupling of the trailer and an off-road reverse manoeuvre.

Your practical test will include about ten minutes of independent driving. Without proper training the B+E test will be very difficult to pass, which is where we come in with DVSA qualified instruction using your own equipment or our vehicle and trailer if you prefer.
