GT Towing

Links Driving School B + E Entitlement

Under the new driving licence regulations, if you have passed your test on or after 1st January 1997 you will have to undergo a DSA driving test to obtain the B+E category.
The regulations state: If you want to tow a trailer weighing more than 750kg, when the combined weight of the towing vehicle (car) and trailer is more than 3,500kg an additional test is required.

Links Driving School working in partnership with GT Towing to provide B+E tuition. Clients will have to provide their own vehicle and use their own trailer if suitable, or hire out the correct sized trailer from GT Towing. A booklet explaining the test requirements will be provided by GT Towing (£6). Up to 8 hours training is usually required before going in for the test.
