Dulson Training

Cat B+E Car and Trailer training

Course Information

If you passed your car test after 1st January 1997 and wish to tow a large trailer or caravan you may need to pass a DVSA test. The 90 minute test will include road driving, reversing, coupling and some safety questions. The minimum age is 17 and you must hold a UK driving licence. 

We supply easy to drive new vehicles and trailers and we arrange the test for you. We can provide automatic or manual vehicles. We have some standard set courses with excellent pass rates to choose from or you can arrange training lesson by lesson. 

We offer an optional 30 minute free driving assessment. We invite you to visit one of our sites and find out more about us, the course and have a go. This will help you decide which is the best course duration for you. 

We offer training courses and tests in Shrewsbury, Telford, Wrexham and Wolverhampton. Lessons are available weekdays or weekends and we have access to hundreds of tests at our own private DVSA testing sites. You will practice at the same site that you take your test.

Finance packages available to spread the costs. T&C's apply. 

If you would like any more information or to discuss course or free assessment dates please contact us.

    Who should train? Why should I train?

    If you want to tow a large trailer, horse box, or caravan (usually over 750kg), you will need to take a DVSA test. Most trailers, caravans and horseboxes exceed this weight.

    If you are a farmer, groundworks, motorsport enthusiast, or horse rider who drives large vehicles, you may be required to take the B+E test car & trailer test. Once you pass you will receive an updated licence which permits you to drive any vehicle up to 3500kg and tow a trailer up to 3500kg. Please be aware that you must also ensure that your car, van or 4x4, can legally tow the trailer you will be using.

    If you drive these vehicles without the correct licence you will be breaking the law. You can receive a large fine, points on your licence, and your insurance will be invalid.

    Amazing experience - it’s taken me more thank one go to get my licence and the only reason I continued is because of the amazingly calm, professional and encouraging manner of all Dulson staff. From the original enquiry through to the test, there is nothing they could have done better. Highly recommend.

    I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the course content and the trainers who delivered them.

    It was easy to book the days that suited me over a two week period and to complete each one. Pat was extremely helpful at every stage and made the process simple and easy with great communication along the way.

    It is clear that your team strive to excel and exceed expectations, and on this they delivered it all.

    What was also pleasing was that it was interactive and participative with the training team having good interpersonal skills and humour making all the subjects easy to engage with and get the most out of.

    Please pass on my thanks to them all.

    Just like to add no driver looks forward to their cpc courses Neil & Rose made the course as painless as possible the time flew by, whilst it was done remotely with limitations on discussions we still managed to have some form of discussion between new drivers and the more seasoned drivers.  I would just like to extend my thanks to Neil, Rose and Pat very friendly team very helpful and may possibly be back to add to my CPC hours in the future I will be recommending Dulson in the future.

    From the initial phone call to pat about wanting to go for my cat c license right up to steve driving me back from the test site to rodenhurst and everything in between was just brilliant. Loved the cpc modules and steve is an asset to the company. The driving assessment was perfect and the fella that assessed me was brilliant. John was an absolutely fantastic trainer and a really nice fella. Super supportive and encouraging and its because of his wealth of knowledge and information he handed down to me I passed first time. So from start to finish I couldn't have been happier.. thank you

    Everything was absolutely faultless from the moment I first called the office to the moment I left after passing my test. First impressions were very good as the office staff explained everything I needed to do with a provisional and theory tests etc. They sent a full information pack of forms out that i found very useful and made the whole process easy. This is something that stood out to me as other driver training businesses didn’t give me a good first impression. Even though I didn’t pass first time(my fault), Steve and his team worked very hard in finding me a test as soon as possible and at the right time for myself. They were great.

    I would like to thank Steve Dulson for organising my training days and I would also like to say a special thankyou to John Challenor who was my coach trainer. The training was well planned with structured lessons. I couldn't have asked for anything more, passing both my cpc mod 4 and pcv practical tests 1st attempt on the same day. A massive thank you to all at Dulson Training for making me feel very welcome.

    Just a quick thankyou after having passed my LGV C test this morning and a special thankyou to Allan for his patience and persistence; I really believe that even if I'd failed the test today I would still have emerged a better driver after having met Allan
