LGV Trainers

B+E/Van & Trailer – Training Facility Launched

Category: News | 03.12.09 |


Having sourced a well cared for, one owner Mercedes Vito 2.8 ton van, we have added the final category of training to our services.  Coupled to a curtainside/box twin axle trailer, supplied by AE Services, Earls Barton, Northampton, customers are now able to upgrade their standard category B (3.5 ton) driving licence to B+E, enabling correct licencing to drive GTW combinations up to 6.3 tonne (subject to vehicle suitability).

Throughout the summer of 2009 we have successfully progressed local horsebox owners, landscapers, builders & motorsport enthusiasts through their training and DSA practical tests.

Generally, training is offered to customers on a solo basis, giving a full 8 hour day, followed by a further 2 hours next day and test appointment usually around 10am-11am at local testing station, Weedon, Northants.

We also have availability of smaller trailers (supplied by Indespension) to couple to the Mercedes, catering for customers who may struggle with manouvering and handling the larger curtainside box.

If you are unsure for any reason if you may be towing a trailer illegally, please do not hesitate to contact us on our 24 hour helpline, 012604 250045 and speak with christopher Harwood, who will be happy to advise.
