Trailer Training

As part of the Mendip Training Centre group, our car and trailer training runs alongside our own Truck School. For car and trailer lessons in Radstock, choose Mendip Training Centre Ltd to take you through your car and trailer test. Gain your B+E driving licence and be able to tow larger trailers.
Passed car test after Jan 1997


If you passed your car driving test after Jan 1997, you will only be able to tow smaller trailers behind your car. As a general rule of thumb, this is limited to 750kg. There are some combinations of car and trailer that will allow you to pull more but this is a general guide.

To be able to tow larger trailers like horse trailers or gardening machinery trailers, you will need to take the B+E car and trailer test.

Passed car test before Jan 1997


If you passed your car driving test before Jan 1997, you will have acquired rights to tow. To get experience in towing caravans or larger trailers, contact Mendip Training and you can go through a refresher course to hone those skills. You will be put through your paces for the reverse and also be shown the correct and safe uncoupling procedure.

You will then be able to tow your own caravan or horse trailer with more confidence.

With access to a private dedicated reversing area, you will gain one to one training in a safe, off-road environment. Tow trailers, caravans or horse boxes with confidence with Mendip Training Centre Ltd.
