If you have a B category driver's license, you can drive a car with a trailer with a maximum weight of 750 kg (or even a little higher, but the trailer + car must not weigh more than 3.5 tons). Therefore, if you want to attach something larger to the vehicle, you need to extend your driver's license. There are 2 variants: category "BE" and "B96".
What you’ll be driving in our school

The "B96" category driver's license is ideal for those who only need to drive a car with a trailer with a total weight (i.e. including the car) of up to 4250 kg.
The main advantage of this driver's license is that you do not have to take any tests and by law, you don't even have to take any course. All you have to do is pass the so-called "supplementary driving exam". Of course, we will be happy to provide you with training if you want to practice your skills before the exam.
With a "BE" category driver's license, you can attach a trailer weighing up to 3,500 kg to your car. So it pays off to get it if you want to drive really heavy things.
Unlike the "B96" category, you can't do without completing the course here. The scope of B + E category training is as follows:
- 1 lesson: vehicle operation regulations
- 1 lesson: vehicle driving and maintenance
- 2 lessons: driving theory and principles of safe driving
- 1 lesson: first-aid preparation
- 1 lesson: revisions and tests
- 8 lessons: vehicle driving training
- 2 lessons: hands-on maintenance training
- 2 lessons: practical first-aid training
The final exam consists of a written test and a practical driving exam.
