If you intend on driving a caravan, you are legally required to successfully enrol and complete a caravan training course. The purpose of the caravan training is to help you understand the importance of maintaining control at all times. The course will show you how to manoeuvre and maintain control of the caravan in awkward and sometimes challenging scenarios.
One of our DVSA training instructors will talk you through the training course itself before discussing what the final caravan driver training test will consist of. We will set a series of small, achievable challenges to help build your confidence throughout the course, making sure that you are aware how to spot potential hazards with and without the caravan.
Our caravan training will prepare you for everything that is included in the final exam. This will typically include all of the following:
How to check and understand your licence
Learn and understand at least five vehicle safety questions
Teach and master the reversing manoeuvre
Understand how to uncouple and re-couple a caravan to a towing vehicle
Learn how to drive safely on different road types and driving conditions
As part of your caravan driver training, it is important to understand the course, its contents and what the final test will consist of. We have prepared a number of useful resources that you can use to prepare you for your caravan towing exam.
