B+E TRAINING

Drivers who passed a car driving test after 1st January 1997

Changes in legislation in 1997 requires all car drivers who passed their driving test after the 1st January 1997 to obtain a separate B+E licence in order for them to tow a trailer which exceeds 750kg on a vehicle weighing 3,500kg, or vehicle and trailer/caravan/horsebox combination over 3,500kg, see below:


Licences issued from 1 January 1997

If you passed your car driving test on or after 1 January 1997 you can:

  • drive a car or van up to 3,500kg maximum authorised mass (MAM) towing a trailer of up to 750kg MAM 
  • tow a trailer over 750kg MAM as long as the combined MAM of the trailer and towing vehicle is no more than 3,500kg


MAM is the limit on how much the vehicle can weigh when it’s loaded.

You have to pass the B+E test if you want to tow anything heavier.


Licences issued before 1 January 1997

If you passed your car test before 1 January 1997 you’re usually allowed to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8,250kg MAM. View your driving licence information to check.

You’re also allowed to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kg MAM.


Here at CPC Nationwide our one to one B+E Training allows drivers to gain that additional category on their driving licence and tow vehicles that reach a specific weight limit. Our training courses are usually 8 hours long plus test using our vehicle & trailer.
