Why Bother with the B and E Test?

If you tow large trailers, caravans, boats or horse-boxes and DO NOT have the correct entitlement on your licence you are running the risk of 9 points on your licence, and a fine.

3 points for 'no category'.
6 points for 'no insurance'.
There could also be a fine of £400 plus

DSA Test Fee
The cost the B and E test is payable to the Driving Standards Agency; from April 1st 2009 this costs £115 for a weekday and an additional £26 for a Saturday test.

L Plate Academy prefer to book the test for you when planning the Course so the appropriate test fee is added to which ever course you book and must be paid prior to the course being taken.

L Plate Academy conduct 1-2-1 tuition; it is also possible to take two students together upon request. We never take more than 2 students on a course at any one time.

All the courses can be run with a break of either 3-7 days to allow Clients time to practice the exercises learnt on Day 1, in readiness for Day 2 or Day 3 of refresher tuition.

If preferred the courses can be ran on consecutive days for those Clients who have a time limit to have the entitlement on their licence.
