What seemed like an easy task to organise, was complicated when we realised that our team needed to take a towing course in London, as we all passed our car test after 1st January 1997.
We needed the towing Course in London for our Rigid Inflatable Boat
Moving our rigid inflatable boat (RIB) from London to Scotland seemed like the easiest task of our trip to organise, that was until we realised that everyone in the team had a post 1st January 1997 driving licence and no one could tow a trailer, as they had not sat the trailer test. Both myself and Stef left all of the organisation of booking the trailer test to our team leader Giulia as she needed to take the test also and she found Stephen Bell at Sirens Driving Academy. Giulia communicated with Stephen and he gave us a comprehensive breakdown of the training and costs. However things did not turn out the way we expected and Giulia didn’t take the test in the end.
Our Towing Course in London without Our Team Leader
Throughout the booking process Stephen kept Giulia updated and helped us understand more about getting the trailer licence. It was during this process that Stephen identified that Giulia would need a UK driving licence counter part if she wanted to be part of the towing course in London he had organised. Being Italian Giulia could not just sit the trailer test and would need to register with the DVLA, so he could book the test.
Passed Our Trailer Test First Time after 12 Hour Towing Course in London
Our course was very flexible and we completed our initial trailer training one Saturday in June, then Stef went on holiday. Once Stef was back we both met Stephen at Rickmansworth train station where he collected us and refreshed all that we learn’t and would need know to pass the trailer test. On 9th July 2013 both myself and Stef passed our test and got our trailer licence at the first time of asking.
We can now continue to organise our trip knowing we can legally tow our boat on our trailer. If you are looking for a towing course in London, then we would recommend Stephen Bell at Sirens Driving Academy 07984 493798
