EP Training now offers BE training in Surrey and the surrounding areas that won’t break the bank. For over 30 years, we’ve been helping students obtain their LGV and PCV E entitlement.
Our category B trailer training now means we can deliver our knowledge and expertise beyond the commercial transport industry.
If you passed your car (category B) test after 1st January 1997, you’ll need additional training (E entitlement) if you want to tow a trailer, horse box or caravan that exceeds 750kg gross vehicle weight.
We strongly recommend that you check the entitlement on your licence and the GVW of the vehicle you wish to tow before hitting the road.
By signing up to one of our trailer training courses, you’ll be giving yourself essential, practical experience and quality tuition under the direct supervision of one of our DSA approved instructors.
Our team will mentor you throughout the entire course. We’ll tailor your training just for you, taking into account any towing experience you’ve had in the past. We’ll address your concerns, answer any questions you have and help you perfect towing manoeuvres.
As part of your course, you’ll be shown how to couple and uncouple correctly and effectively, how to reverse and how to ensure and check your load is both legal and safe for travelling on the UK’s roads.
Our BE training takes place at our facilities in Great Bookham, near Leatherhead. Our premises and our staff are endorsed and approved by most industry training bodies including the DSA, OCR and SQA. We have access to excellent, off road facilities where manoeuvres can be attempted and practiced to perfection.
In order to receive BE entitlement on your licence, you will need to pass an official, practical test. This will take place at our local test centre in Guildford, Surrey. The test will last for around 90 minutes. You will be tested both on and off the road, asked questions by the examiner and be required to demonstrate towing procedures and methods.
Whether you’re an individual looking for one to one tuition, or a company looking to train several staff members, we can help.
