Caravan Towing Training

We are the only Caravan & Motorhome Club training centre in South Wales and the surrounding areas.

It is our Pleasure to be delivering coursed for the Caravan Club to their valued Club members then we are sure you can trust us too!


Due to the Government’s decision to scrap the B+E Car & Trailer test as of the 20th September 2021, Tilston Training are now offering shorter courses to ensure you are safe and confident in the art of towing caravans.


Towing trailers/caravans up to a max weight of 3,500 kgs can be very dangerous if the driver is not correctly trained. Although the Government have relaxed the rules on towing trailers and caravans they are encouraging and advising people to take up training by qualified instructors. JW Driver Training have been teaching Car and trailer for over 6 years even after the law changed.


We will still train you to the very high standards as if you needed to pass a test. However, you are not required to take any test at the end of the course.


You will be issued with an attendance certificate at the end of the course signed off by one of our DVSA Approved Instructors.


So whether you need to tow a trailer or caravan for the first time, or if you just require a little additional training to give you a little more confidence when you’re towing, then we have a training course that will suit you.


JW Driver Training instructors are friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. All the training is overseen by fully qualified, CRB checked and registered DVSA Approved Driving Instructors. In addition, they have years of experience in towing trailers and caravans.


We host the DVSA vocational test centre at our premises so you will be trained as if you were on test in a perfect off-road facility and not in a public car park somewhere.


We are based in Newport City Centre near to the Transporter bridge. Please see our about us page and see our site map for details on where to find us.
