Trailer Training Northampton.

Our trailer test pass rate is consistently over 90%!!

Think all trailer training providers in Northamptonshire are the same?

We’re different.

With years of experience, and hundreds of towing courses behind us, we are the first choice for car and trailer driving courses in Northamptonshire. We know that you’re busy, we also know that you want the best possible trailer training Northampton has to offer. And we agree that it shouldn’t cost a fortune! Our towing training courses are designed to work for you – not us! We only conduct our towing courses on a one to one basis, with just you and the instructor in the car. Other training companies will force you to pair up with a complete stranger, thereby halving your training time!

Need to take your car and trailer test? We’ve helped hundreds of people pass their test. Since we started in 2010 our trailer training courses are being constantly adjusted and tweaked so you can have the best possible experience, and the best chance of success. It’s for this reason that we start your trailer training course from the test centre at Weedon, between Northampton and Daventry. Starting your towing course at the test centre means we can do your training on the very roads you will be driving on during your trailer test. It also saves time as we don’t spend ages driving to the training location. We will show you the difficult junctions and test hot spots that you may encounter during your towing test to ensure there are no surprises on the day.

If you have just purchased a horsebox, trailer or caravan and need help reversing it, don’t worry! We see lots of people just like you, and without exception they improve their skills, and confidence by completing a short introduction to towing course. This is the perfect introduction to safe and legal towing, how to load and hitch your trailer safely and of course driving the trailer both forwards and backwards.

You have the choice of using your car for the towing training course, or if you prefer we have manual vehicles you can use. We always use our trailer but it’s flexibility like this that makes us the leading provider for trailer training in Northampton.

Everything we do is geared around providing the best value towing training Northamptonshire has to offer.

Trailer Training Northampton – Explained!

If you need to tow a large trailer, horsebox or caravan, and you passed your driving test after 1st January 1997 you will need to take the towing test. During the test you will be asked to complete a reversing exercise into a bay at the test centre. You will be checked to ensure you can uncouple and couple up the trailer to the car safely and you will also be asked questions on safe loading and operating the vehicle. The main part of the test is the on road driving element, this lasts for up to an hour and you will be tested on a wide variety of roads. Starting from the test centre at Weedon, you will be asked to drive into Daventry or Northampton. The road to Northampton can be tricky as the speed limit changes 9 times on the way to the Sixfields roundabout and Duston! The routes in Northampton include Weedon Road, Bants Lane, Harlestone Road, St Peters Way and Towcester Road. You may also be asked to drive between junctions 15a and 16 of the M1, or through Rothersthorpe and Kislingbury. We know all the test routes and will show you the difficult junctions you may encounter on your B+E Test.

You will get expert guidance and benefit from our years of experience to ensure you have the best possible chance of passing first time. Many people come to us for their towing lessons, nervous or even scared of driving or reversing a trailer. Don’t worry if you’re nervous – it’s completely normal and we’ve seen it all before! Our expert instructors will guide you through the towing course every step of the way. Most people are surprised at how easy reversing a trailer can be when they have had a few goes with our expert help.
