Trailer Training Scotland

Professional B+E car and trailer training for business and private individuals

B+E D1+E Trailer Training Scotland

B+E Trailer Training Scotland

If you need to tow a heavy trailer with a car or van then you require B+E entitlement on your driving licence, if you passed your standard car driving test since 1.1.1997 then you will not have been given this entitlement unless you have passed the B+E practical test.

The B+E practical test is based on the C+E articulated lorry test and is conducted by the same examiners at the same test centres.

What my customers Say:

I sat my B+E trailer test after less than 5 hours of instruction from Jonathan and passed first time with 4 minors... Which were down to poor observational skills by myself and nothing to do with his instruction! Clear, concise, comprehensive, patient and friendly, I'd recommend him to anyone, and I will be using him again in future should I; or anyone at my company; need additions to our licences. 5 stars! Shaun Cassidy - Dalkeith

Drive me Bananas is a great driving school. I passed my B+E test with them and i would reccomend them to anyone wanting to pass this or any other kind of driving test.

Passed my Category B&E driving test first time after five hours of lessons with Jonathan. Cant recommend him enough, professional and easy going and explained everything clearly and was very encouraging! Thanks! Nicola Harper.

Thanks to Jonathan for the use of his services which allowed me to pass first time and on the same days as taking my first lesson with a trailer. Jonathan's instruction made the whole experience straight forward and a lot less troublesome than i thought it would be. Highly recommended!
