Horse Trailer Courses
We've spoken to lots of people in the equestian world who have never towed their horse in a trailer because they did not want to take the B+E driving test.
The good news is that all that has now changed. After 16 December 2021, the B+E driving test was abolished meaning Category B (car) licence holders can now tow a trailer weighting a max. 3500kg with a tow vehicle weighing a max. 3500kg.
Our 7.5 hour course is spread over two sessions. The first session covers all the towing and manoeuvring techniques you will need when towing a live animal. For the second session, we show you how to load your horse, followed by a short drive so you can experience first-hand what if feels like to tow a load that moves!
We also offer a 1/2 day course which is aimed at the more experienced tower who is looking to improve their manoeuvring skills.
Clients must provide a suitable tow vehicle and trailer. The tow vehicle must not exceed 3500kg GVW and the loaded trailer must not exceed 3500kg MAM. You must be entitled and fit to drive, and hold a valid UK Driving licence for the class of vehicle.
Courses are from £150 for 3 hrs up to £350 for 7 hrs.
These courses can be sold as a Gift Voucher. There is an additional charge of £5 for postage and packaging. Ask us for more details.
