Are your staff licenced to tow or are they in need of a towing refresher lesson?

Universal Trailers can arrange B+E licence and towing refresher training!

Who needs B+E Training?

Drivers who have passed their test since 1st if January 1997 will only have category B and not have Category B+E on their licence. Category B+E allows you to tow trailers up to 3500kg whereas drivers with only category B on their licence can only tow trailers of up to 3500kg if accompanied by a driver who already holds category B+E on their licence. Drivers with only category B on their licence are only legally allowed to tow when the trailer and vehicle combination does not exceed 3500kgs and the weight of the trailer is less than the vehicle.

B+E Training:

First assessment held is to evaluate the individuals’ confidence and level of training required. All lessons will train the individual to the standard of their B+E car & trailer DSA driving test.
Training will cover health & safety, relevant basic towing in law, pre-towing inspection routine, hitching up & un-hitching, reversing and manoeuvring.

Refresher Lesson:

A refresher lesson on towing is dedicated to raising your confidence in the art of reversing and manoeuvring your trailer.
If the individual already holds a B+E licence but cannot get the knack of reversing, hitching on and un-hitching or lacks in confidence with towing and manoeuvring your trailer then a refresher lesson is just for you.


Hi Sophie,

Dear Universal,
Thank you so much for all your help with my new horse trailer. You were all so lovely and helpful and made sure that I left feeling 100% confident with everything. I absolutely love my new trailer and it looks so smart.
I will definitely be coming back for any future parts or accessories and I shall see you next year for my annual service.
You come highly recommended.
With Kind regards,

I am so chuffed with my new Ifor Williams trailer! It tows like a dream and my confidence has improved so much with my towing and reversing since my lesson with Chris.
I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is slightly nervous with towing to book themselves in for a lesson with Chris.
Thanks again and I shall see you next year for a service.

Dear Universal,
Thanks so much for all your help and super service, I would highly recommend you guys to anyone!
Best wishes,
