B+E Driving Schools

Anyone who passed their driving test before 1st January 1997 has the automatic B+E entitlement on their driving licence.

If however, you passed your car driving test after 1st January 1997, you are allowed to drive a vehicle in Category B (a car or van weighing up to 3500kg) and tow a trailer as long as the total plated mass of your car and trailer combination doesn’t exceed 3500kg. You will also need to check that your trailer is within the maximum towing limit for the vehicle that you intend to tow with.

For example, your could drive a vehicle such as the Vauxhall Astra 1.7TDI (MAM of 2105kg) with a box trailer (1300kg MAM) without taking a B+E Test.

NTTA is working with driving schools up and down the Country that offer B+E training – for a full list, please click here
