Trailer training is also known as the B+E category (More information can be found here). At SmartLearner we offer training from DVSA Approved Driving Instructors to companies and/or individuals who require the B+E category adding to their licence. We like to make sure that passing with us is affordable and quick while ensuring you are confident and safe on the road once you pass.
