    Default B+E Trailer test....anyone done it?

    I've been thinking about doing this test for the past while and I guess it's time to take the jump. I've been towing caravans for the past 3 years and trailers for even longer so I know what i'm doing but I assume as far as the test goes i'll be doing it "all wrong".

    How easy is this test and how much will it sting me in the end 4-500 quid?

    Cheers Khalid, it'll be nice to not have to work out towing weights so carefully

    It's all down to weights buddy, As i've said I tow a caravan perfectly legal.

    As long as the laden plated weight of the Van doesn't exceed the unladen weight of the tow vehicle
    Does not exceed the recommended towing weight of the tow vehicle (duh!)
    And the combination of a fully laden vehicle and fully laden trailer does not exceed 3.5t

    The towing limit of 750 kg is only if your driving a vehicle that weighs 3500kg

    All trailers above 750kg have to be legally fitted with brakes but thats got nothing to do with what you can tow, thats just the law

    What vec do you have and i'll quickly work it out for ya
