Towing Training for Camping Trailers, Caravans, Boats, 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 at 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
- 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.
