The only reason that trailer towing tests are being stopped is purely to release more testing staff to address HGV driver testing. There’s no saying that they might not be reintroduced in the future. Putting tests to the private sector risks undermining the integrity of the system which even for car tests is challenged by fraudsters.I don't se why not, HMG decides that a motorcycle rider has to take a proficency test before going on the road, why not the same for basic car drivers and then people to tow trailers. It should all be included. Even if it is farmed out to other organisations.
My sons were put through the "extra" driving bits after their driving test, which stated it would help their insurance, It didn't. A waste of money. Insurance companys didnt recognise it.
