Whether you’re a complete novice or an old hand looking to consolidate the tips your grandad gave you as a young’n, a towing course is a great way to go about it. Generally, courses will run through a theory component that covers all the things you’ll need to consider before setting off, which will be followed by an instructorguided driving session in a controlled environment, using your own van and vehicle.
