The Easy Guide to Horse Transport
Options in the UK

Horse transport in the UK is probably more complicated than it needs to be from a licencing perspective. However, it is what it is. We want to make it as easy as possible to understand what your requirements are if you regularly transport horses. In this easy guide to horse transport we will discuss licencing, training, and some of the practical aspects of towing horsebox trailers. If you have any further questions after reading this guide, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Large horse transport box

The place to begin is to discuss the difference between horsebox trailers and HGV horseboxes. The horsebox trailer is simply a large utility trailer with a roof on top and a built-in stall in the interior. In the eyes of the DVLA, if it is no different in practical terms than your standard utility trailer used for hauling equipment or furniture. The HGV horsebox is entirely different.

The HGV horsebox is a self-contained unit with both the engine and horse transport areas built on the same chassis. For purposes of clarification, consider it similar to a box lorry that has been modified to transport horses rather than static cargo. This difference dictates that most HGV horsebox operators need a special licence to account for the size and weight of their vehicles.

As a horse owner, the kind of vehicle you use for horse transport is entirely up to you. Most recreational horse owners are content with a horsebox trailer towed by an SUV or pickup truck.

Horse Transport Licencing Requirements

The most confusing thing for horse owners to understand are the licencing requirements. Unfortunately, we do not make things easy here in the UK. There are two different licences pertaining to horse transport activities: the operator’s licence and the driving licence.

The operator’s licence is similar to the kind of licence a logistics company would need to legally operate commercial vehicles on the road. Horse owners DO NOT need an operator's licence if they transport horses under the following conditions:

  • Horse transport is for recreational or hobby purposes only
  • The owner/driver does not derive a significant portion of his or her income from transport
  • Horse transport does not involve qualifying business operations
  • The equipment owner does not hire himself or herself out to other hobbyists in need of horse transport.

Simply put, the government has created a distinction between recreational and commercial transport of horses. If what you do qualifies as a commercial enterprise, you will need both an operator's licence and appropriate CPC certification. And operator’s licence is not required for hobbyists. As for the driving licence, it is dependent entirely on vehicle weight and class.

The current standards taken directly from the GOV.UK website are as follows:

  • Category B – A category B licence allows you to tow a trailer with a maximum authorised mass of up to 750 kg as long as the trailer and tow vehicle combined do not have an actual weight exceeding 3.5 tonnes. For practical purposes, this would disqualify most moderately sized horsebox trailers.
  • Category B+E – This licence allows you to tow a trailer with a maximum authorised mass greater than 750 kg and a combined trailer/tow vehicle weight in excess of 3.5 tonnes. The combined weight cannot exceed 7.5 tonnes under this licence category. Your average horsebox trailer qualifies.
  • Category C Licences – There are four different Category C licences that apply to heavier vehicles. They are normally not needed when towing a horsebox trailer with a typical passenger vehicle. However, a Category C or C1 will probably be necessary for operating an HGV horsebox. Like Category B licences, the exact licence needed to operate an HGV horsebox will depend on vehicle weight.

It should be obvious that the average horse owner will need at least a Category B+E to tow a horsebox trailer. We provide the training necessary to pass the B+E test. Continue reading to learn more about our training programme.

Training for Horse Transport

Towing any kind of trailer behind a passenger vehicle is not as easy as it might appear. This is one of the primary reasons for requiring a special licence for such activities. Regulators know that without proper training and licencing, drivers may not be fully prepared for what it takes to tow a trailer safely.

Our horsebox trailer training covers three elements:

  • Trailer Theory – Although drivers do not need to pass an additional theory exam to earn a Category B+E licence, there is still some theory training involved. This classroom training exposes the student to the knowledge needed for a basic understanding of the physics of towing. It also includes the basic trailer safety knowledge.
  • Driving Skills – The majority of trailer training involves the hands-on skills that make for a safe and competent driver. We cover things such as proper turning techniques, manoeuvring trailers in tight spaces, and using breaks correctly. We include the required vehicle inspections in this portion of the training as well.
  • Horse Safety – The third component of our training deals directly with horse safety. Bear in mind that horse transport is a unique exercise that must be as concerned with the horses as it is for general road safety. We teach our students the basics of transporting horses safely.

Upon completion of our training, students are ready to book and take their practical skills exams. While we do not conduct those exams ourselves, we do send a trainer with each student to the examination location on the day of the test. This enables the student to ask any remaining questions or receive further guidance from the instructor.

Practical Aspects of Horse Transport

It is clear that those engaged in horse transport of any kind will likely need some sort of special licence to do so legally. Our training covers those needs. But above and beyond licencing, there are practical aspects of horse transport that you need to know as a horse owner. Some of those things we cover in our training, others are learned from fellow horse owners and your own experience.

As just one example, there are different types of horsebox trailers you can purchase. You may purchase a rear facing trailer while one of your friends has a front facing trailer. Or you may buy a larger horsebox with several stables and a side facing configuration. The thing to understand is that the horsebox trailer you choose will have an impact on how you transport your horses. So it pays to understand the different configurations and how these apply in your circumstances.

Another important practical aspect of horse transport is knowing how stressful transport can be to horses. Some animals just do not do well no matter how much care you take in transporting them. Experience and your fellow horse owners will help you understand the personality of your animals so that you can become better at horse transport.

Horse transport is unique exercise very few people experience in their lifetimes. As a horse owner, you do what you do because you love everything about owning and enjoying your animals. When it comes to transport, we want to see you do it safely for both your benefit and theirs. The HGV Training Centre is here to provide industry-leading training that will enable you to earn your horsebox licence and do your horses proud every time you take them somewhere. Our training is convenient, fast, reliable, and affordable.

Vehicle Type Verses Licence Class
HGV / LGV Cat 'C+E' (Class 1)

Any vehicle over 7.5t that has a detachable or separate trailer, Cat 'C+E' licences can only be applied for once the driver has taken and passed their Cat 'C'. These are larger vehicles so tend to be used for long haul, national and international routes. Starting salaries are around £28,000 per year.

HGV / LGV Cat 'C' (Class 2)

For vehicles in a rigid-based body that is over 7.5t – examples include fire engines, rubbish collection vehicles and any HGV, providing the vehicle is all one unit (i.e. the cab does not separate from the trailer). Usually operated in towns and cities, starting salaries for Cat 'C' drivers are around £24,000 per year

Cat C1

For use if driving any goods vehicle that is above 3.5t and below 7.5t in weight. If you gained your driving licence before 1997, you will automatically have this category on your licence. If you gained your driving licence after 1997, you will have to take a test. Note – if you gain your Cat 'C' you automatically get given your Cat 'C1', so it is advisable to take a full Cat 'C' course and get both categories for the price of one. C1 vehicle examples include: horseboxes, ambulances, Occado delivery vehicles etc. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat C1+E

Same as above, but gives you the capacity to tow a trailer behind your C1 vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat B+E

This enables you to tow an item behind a standard car. Again, if you passed before 1997 you do not need to pass a test to tow a trailer behind a car – if you passed after 1997, a full course and driving test is required. Course can be completed in 3x days.

Cat D

This is a full bus / coach licence, enabling you to drive any sized Passenger Carrying Vehicle. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Cat D1

Enables you to drive a minibus of 9-16 seats maximum. If you passed your driving test before 1997 this category will already be on your licence, if you passed after that date a full course and test is required. Course can be completed in 1x week.

Fork Lift

The licences depend on what vehicle is used and the type of environment it is used in. 1-day refresher courses: for experienced operators with lapsed licences 3-day mini courses: for experienced operators who have not received formal training 5-day full courses: for novices who have not received any training and have no experience. All courses begin with classroom time where you will learn the theoretical requirements of the vehicle they are being trained on. Includes all relevant aspects of health and safety and short multiple-choice Theory Test. Practical training begins with an explanation as to the operation of the relevant truck. Practical elements cover daily vehicle checks and safe loading techniques – you will then practice the operation of the vehicle until they become proficient, whereby a short practical test will take place.
