Towing Training for Camping Trailers, Caravans, Boats, and Horse Floats.

Towing can be terrific fun, taking the boat to a new fishing spot, getting your horse to a competition or caravanning to new places. But to tow safely and with confidence a few basic skills need to be learned. 

Towing involves several key competencies and here ‚Äčat Tow-Ed we have identified the following subjects to be main focus of the training:

  • safety & maintenance checks
  • legal aspects of towing
  • trailer dimensions
  • loads and loading
  • types of hitches
  • driving and manoeuvring techniques                                  
  • braking techniques
  • reversing
  • launching and recovery of boats (if applicable)
  • carry out vehicle and trailer pre & post trip inspections

By attending a towing course at Tow-Ed you will enjoy the benefits of having skilled instructors teach you in a friendly supportive environment. This course is designed to build your confidence and skills with lots of practice.

We conduct our courses at a variety of venues, so when you apply for training, we can advise you of your nearest training venue. In addition Tow-Ed conducts Off Road Towing courses for the owners of Camper Trailers who want to venture off the beaten track to enjoy their asset.
