We are based just 1/4 of a mile from the Wrexham LGV test centre in Llay.
Do you need a B+E car and trailer test to tow your caravan?
A vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes MAM (maximum authorised mass) towing a trailer up to 750kgs, or a vehicle and trailer combination up to 3.5 tonnes MAM providing the MAM of the trailer doesn’t exceed the unladen mass of the towing vehicle.
You will need to pass an additional driving test in B+E if you wish to tow a caravan or trailer combination which exceeds these weight limits.
If the conditions aren’t met exactly it can result in the driver being unlicensed and uninsured which could carry a maximum of 9 penalty points and a fine of up to £1000, and in some cases maybe even a ban.
