Car and Trailer Training and Test
If you passed your car test after 1st January 1997 you are only permitted to tow a trailer up to 750kg or a M.A.M. of 3500kg. To lift this restriction on your licence you must pass the D.S.A. practical test B&E Car and Trailer. No theory test is required but you must hold a full car licence Category B. Jim will provide professional comprehensive practical training to reach the D.S.A. test standard. He will also book your practical driving test at the completion of training.
