Questions we are often asked...

What is B + E?
Category B + E allows vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes MAM to be combined with trailers in excess of 750kgs MAM. In order to gain this entitlement, new Categoy B driving licence holders have to pass a further practical test for B + E.

Is there a minimum age for towing a trailer?
There isn't a minimum age for towing a trailer but if you passed your car driving test after January 1997 you can only tow a trailer up to 750kg or a combination of a car & trailer up to 3500kg but the trailer can't weigh more than the unladen vehicle.
