Trailer Towing Vocational Coaching and Workshop
Combined workshop and practical driver coaching for effective competency based training that replaced the car/van trailer towing driving test.
Why should my drivers attend TTC's Trailer Towing Vocational Driver Coaching & Workshop?
This combination of workshop, practical coupling and uncoupling exercises followed by on road driver training and reversing skills with a trailer is designed to replace recent UK government changes to the Category ‘BE’ driving test.
From the autumn of 2021 , Category ‘B’ licence holders no longer need to take a Category ‘E’ trailer towing test. However, drivers and businesses are encouraged to seek
professional training to ensure they drive safely and within the law surrounding vehicle and trailer weights and restrictions applicable to this vehicle combination.
