You will probably need category BE if you transport a horse, boat, caravan or a bigger trailer – check out the following for more information.
Category B driving licence allows to tow a light trailer behind the vehicle, that means a trailer with a maximum mass not above 750 kg, or a heavier trailer, if the maximum mass of the road train (the combined mass of the vehicle and trailer) is not above 3500 kg.
In the case the road train’s maximum mass exceeds 3500, there are two options:
To take the category BE course, you need to have right to drive a category B vehicle.
NB! The category BE driving licence is issued in the Transport Administration to a person who has a category B driving licence, so you can study while you have a provisional licence, but to acquire the right to drive, you have to upgrade the provisional licence.
The theory course has 3 lessons and there are at least 2 driving lessons.
To see which category you need to drive your road train, look HERE
You can pass the theory lessons as an e-course and watch the videos at a suitable time. E-courses give you a chance to fit your lessons in between work, exercising and other everyday activities. E-courses are also convenient, if your work/studies are of a periodic nature or you live far from the classrooms and it takes a considerable time to drive there.
Category BE training is also available as a face-to-face course.
Regardless of whether you take theory as an e-course or face-to-face, you can start your driving lessons in parallel with the theory lessons.
Participants in the face-to-face courses can watch / listen to past lessons for free in the e-driving school if they want to, as well as take tests.
