Welcome to THE TRAILER TOWING TRAINING CENTRE, 4TC for short. Four T‘s and a C

The Trailer Towing Training Centre was born from driving school roots many years ago, when trailer training was run along side ‘L-driver’ lessons.

Back then, individuals use to call to book in a small course to tow for the Scouts, Cadets or to tow horse-box trailers and it just ticked over.

As more and more people realised that since 1997 they were no longer allowed to tow trailers over a certain weight, enquiries started to build.  Also organisations started to realise that they were vulnerable to the change of entitlement on driving licences, therefore we started to receive more enquiries from the corporate sectors.

Having developed and diversified, a corporate division was designed to conduct trailer towing training as well as work-related road safety for organisations who wanted to comply with health and safety legislation, such as The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, then came the Corporate Manslaughter Act 2008 and most recently the Health and Safety Offences Act.

Basically, as far as HSE are concerned, anyone who drives a vehicle as part of their duties must be correctly trained and advised on how to minimise the risks to themselves and others, including pedestrians.  If they tow as part of thier duties then more training is needed as well as the correct entitlement on their driving licence.  These legislations count if the vehicle is owned by the organisation or privately owned, whether the driver is employed, self-employed, sub-contracted or a volunteer.  Which basically covers all industries.

If the company have towing trailers, then the driver must know the correct and safe procedure for coupling/hitching and uncoupling/unhitching, as well as safe outfit combinations and loading safely and securely.  Failure to ensure correct training could lead to disastrous consequences for the organisation as well as possible danger for the driver.

Anyway, as the list of clients grew, time has come to separate trailers from Fleet/corporate driver development and risk assessment.
