    Category B+E (Car & trailer license) - HGV Training Network

    Category B+E (Car & trailer license)

    This is the most basic of licenses for anyone looking to transport horses, using a mobile horsebox or trailer, and car or van.

    This horsebox licence allows you to transport horses that are owned by yourself and others competently and safely.

    It can be completed in three days, and we supply all of the tools and equipment needed to pass this course – minus the horse!

    7.5 Ton - (Cat C1)

    Category C1 (7.5-tonne license)

    The Cat C1 involves a larger but easier vehicle to train in than the B+E because the vehicle is a single unit and handles more like a car.

    This license enables you to drive a fully loaded vehicle up to 7.5 tonnes, including horses of any ownership type and takes 5 days.

    If you received your car license before ’97, you might have this license already, so may just need some practice before you get started.

    Class 2 - (Cat C)

    Category C (Above 7.5-tonne license)

    This is the largest, most popular horsebox licence from HGVTN, as it allows you to drive over 7.5T (more than the Cat C1).

    The Cat C license gives drivers the ultimate flexibility – allowing you to carry more than one horse.

    This option still only takes 5 days but futureproofs your career in equine transport – making it a better option for some.

    With hundreds or thousands of horseboxes on UK roads at any given time, towing horseboxes can be a great way to help companies and individuals transport these majestic animals quickly and safely, while earning some extra cash.


    Do you need horsebox driver training to tow horseboxes?

    If it’s a one-off favour? No, although having the right knowledge always comes in handy in these situations. 

    But if you’re planning on earning money – be it a share of prize money or direct payment – from towing horseboxes, the law is crystal clear: you need an operator licence and formal horsebox driver training.

    Regularly towing horseboxes without the appropriate qualifications and training could land you with a hefty fine if you’re caught, so it always pays to do things the right way.

    Horsebox driver training not only teaches you the basics of how to securely attach and move horseboxes, but also the essential techniques needed to keep a horsebox steady and smooth on the road, for the benefit of the animal and those around you.
