Three Shires Towing Training is provided by fully qualified Driving Instructors
Following the DVSA’s decision to scrap the B E (car and large trailer) driving test in Autumn 2021 their advice is you should still have training on how to tow safely. Check out the New rules for towing.
Our course will take you through safe hitching and unhitching, safe loading and securing a load, how to tow with livestock on board and trailer awareness when driving on the road. See the DVSA link here Learning to tow
We will carry out the training in your vehicle and using your trailer so that you are familiar with the equipment you will be using. (We will be able to provide a vehicle and trailer if necessary at cost)
Companies, if your employees tow as part of their job then the HSE recommend in their Driving for Work that you provide training for those driving and towing for work. You may also be required to use tachographs (see below)
Please feel free to contact us for advice and training.
