DSA B+E Course

Hi my name is Steve. Feel free to read on to find out more about how our courses are run.

Normally we start with an informal discussion on how the B+E test is conducted.

We will then cover the pre-use checks on the vehicle & trailer to make sure that they are safe to use on the road.

We will then go through the safe way of uncoupling and re-coupling the trailer - you will have plenty of time to practice this yourself.

We will then talk and walk through the reversing exercise - again, you will have plenty of time to practice this yourself.

The next stage will be to develop your driving style following the MSPSL* system of car control.

The B+E test consists of:

  • Checking both parts of your driving licence
  • Eyesight test
  • Five vehicle/trailer safety questions
  • Reversing manoeuvre
  • Uncoupling and re-coupling of the trailer
  • On road driving covering all types of roads

The test lasts approximately 1.5 hrs. When the test is completed, the examiner will give you your result followed by a full debrief.
