Drivers who passed a car test on or after 1 January 1997 are required to pass an additional DSA driving test in order to tow large trailers and gain licence entitlement Category B+E. A Category B vehicle is under 3.5 tonnes MAM with up to 8 passenger seats. Most cars, 4x4s, people carriers and vans fall into Category B. If you wish to tow large trailers such as caravans, horse trailers, boats or plant with a Category B Vehicle you will probably require Category B+E on your licence.

The DSA B+E Driving Test is 1.5 hrs duration and is taken at a local DSA Test Centre. A high standard of driving is expected and is higher than what you experienced on your car test. During the test you will be assessed on your ability to complete a set reversing exercise competently, be able to hitch & unhitch the trailer safely with the minimum of manual handling, and be assessed whilst driving on the road in a variety of road situations. You will also be asked 5 safety questions relating to safe loading and towing of trailers.
