The B+E Licence, the "Holy Grail" of Caravan drivers
Difficult to get it is a compulsory need if you want to get a caravan heavier than 3500kg.
To help you pass it we decided to give you the main aspects that will be checked by the examiners during the test.
The Safety Checks
In all driving tests safety checks are crucial, but even more when it comes to drive a caravan. Make sure you check the following: tyre tread depth, electrics, breakaway cable, reflectors, wheel nuts and all the others.
Think about your training as you need to reproduce the operations in the exact order you have been taught how to.
Probably the most delicate part of the exam, don't rush, take your time, decompose your movements. Pay extreme caution to your environment as you can only help yourself with the side mirrors. Pay attention to obstacles.
The Road Practice
Here comes the final part of the test, driving on the road. Driving a caravan is particularly complex on some roads and you will have to face A and B class roads with tricky turns and blind corners you will therefore have to anticipate. Remember as well that the weight of the trailer will make the braking less effective so ANTICIPATE!
Q and A
Yes, you will have to face a Q and A test about cars and caravan with questions such as: "Where is the washer fluid tank?"...Back to News
