 B+E Caravan / Horsebox and Trailer courses

The caravan course is suited to drivers that already hold a B+E entitlement on their licence but would like to enhance their skills further. As mentioned on the main B+E page this course would help those that are lacking confidence when towing, refresher towing or are totally new to towing.

Courses can be tailored to your requirements but generally the two examples below usually cover all the knowledge that you will need depending on the skills you already have. You are best to complete this course in your own vehicle and caravan / horsebox or trailer as you will gain the experience with the combination that you will be driving. However if you do not wish to do this we will provide our B+E towing combination of a Skoda Fabia 1.6 TDi and box trailer to complete the course. The cost of the course will be cheaper if you provide your own combination.

All manoeuvres will be carried out at our off road facility which is where the course will start. The map of our off road training ground can be found on the main B+E page along with directions on how to find us.
