Safety questions for a car and trailer
All drivers who passed a car test before 1st January 1997 retain their existing entitlement to tow trailers until their licence expires. This means they are generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer.
Drivers who passed a car test on or after 1 January 1997 are required to pass an additional driving test in order to gain entitlement to category B+E which allows them to tow caravans and trailers.
Companies who are towing a trailer over the weight of 750kgs, as a company, if you employ a driver who tows a trailer (or any other towable attachment), it may also be  a legal requirement for them to have passed the additional driving test.
The car and trailer test is based on the lorry driving test and lasts for approximately one hour. Please note that B+E tests are conducted at vocational (bus and lorry) driving test centres.

The towing test (B+E) includes an off-road reverse manoeuvre, a controlled stop, uncoupling and coupling and driving on the road.
These are safety checks that a driver should carry out to ensure the vehicle and trailer is safe for use. Although some checks may involve the candidate in opening the bonnet to identify where fluid levels would be checked, candidates will not be asked to touch a hot engine or physically check fluid levels.
