Car & Trailer

Why take the car trailer test?

Planning on towing - Whether you're planning on towing a trailer, caravan or similar at any point, you're going to need an additional entitlement on your car licence

You gained your licence after 1997 - For those who gained their drivers licence before Jan 1 1997, you are automatically entitled to tow a trailer or caravan. If you gained your licence after this date, you'll need to take an additional test.

More difficult than it looks! - Driving a car that is towing a trailer or caravan is more difficult than it appears, so the vital training can help to make you more safe on the roads.

Refresher Course - If you already have your Car + Trailer licence but need a refresher or you have not used this before, we have short courses to improve your confidence on the road, reversing, coupling & uncoupling.

Car & Trailer

For those who are planning on towing a trailer or caravan at any point, will need to pass your Car & Trailer Test. Gordon Springate offers training courses for drivers who are interested in preparing for the trailer test.

We offer 8 hours or 12 hours training for this entitlement. This depends upon whether the candidate has had any previous experience in reversing on private land.
