Our team of trainers all have a lot of experience towing and will provide valuable hints and tips as well as techniques to keep you safe while on the road. You can even attend our Defensive Driving course with a trailer and learn how your vehicle responds in an emergency with a trailer attached.

Towing a trailer is a skill that can be learnt fairly quickly but takes time to master. Our programs are designed to give you the right information and techniques to get you going safely.
