COVID-19 Update (30 June 2020)

Staff are now returning to work due to customer demand. We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment for all visitors and staff at our training centre, ensuring a safe and protected environment.

DVSA practical tests will be available from the middle of July. Contact Joe Dalton on 01392 42 62 42 to book you place.

We are also getting busy on construction and agricultural plant, forklift and other types of training. Driver CPC is still being offered online at a greatly reduced price.

Car & Trailer Training

Our training centre in Exeter is perfectly set up to provide you with a great opportunity to pass your car and trailer (B+E) driving test. With our off-road training area and professional experienced staff we are recognised as a leading provider in the south-west giving our customers the best opportunity to pass the DVSA test first time.

Not only are we situated on the same estate of the DVSA test centre we also offer use of our vast flat tarmac off-road area situated on-site for training, reversing practice, coupling/uncoupling and other aspects of the course. That means you do not waste any time travelling time off test routes driving to off-road areas. During your course you are welcome to come in early (free of charge) to practise if you wish because our excellent first time pass rate is paramount to us.

Do I need car and trailer training?

Category B (Car) allows you to drive a vehicle with up to 8 passenger seats or a goods vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes.

Category B (Car) entitles you to tow a trailer providing the combined weight of the car & trailer does not exceed 3500kgs or if the towing vehicle has a Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM)of 3500kgs the trailer must not exceed 750kgs.

Question – Our caravan/trailer weighs more than 750kgs. Can I still tow?  Yes, but this is where you need to find the maximum towing capacity of your vehicle and its Unladen Weight (ULW). The rules say that a trailer more than 750kgs can be towed providing the trailer’s maximum weight does not exceed the ULW of the towing vehicle and that the total combined vehicle and trailer does not exceed 3.5 tonnes.

If your combination goes over 3.5 tonnes the driver will need Category B+E. With B+E endorsed on your licence, your vehicle and trailer can be over 3.5 tonnes.
