Introduction to Towing Courses

Are you looking to tow your first large trailer or caravan?

You may no longer need to take a test to able to tow but have you towed anything this big before?

Towing a trailer or caravan for the first time can be daunting and many drivers feel a great sense of trepidation when they hook up to a trailer or caravan and head out onto the road for the first time – not to mention the expectation placed on them the first time they need to reverse it…!!

  • What do I need to do before I tow?
  • How much room do I need?
  • How will other drivers respond to me? 
  • What will it feel like to pull the weight?

By taking an Introduction to Towing Course with me we will address many of these common concerns and equip you with the skills and confidence you require to get you on the road safely.
