The National Associations Strategic Partnership (NASP) has joined colleagues across the training industry in expressing concern over Government proposals to remove the need for an additional test for B+E entitlement for drivers to be able to drive car/van and trailer combinations (as part of a wider range of solutions being consulted on to free up more testing capacity and expedite licence acquisition for LGV drivers).

A letter (published to the logistics industry on the 20th of July 2021), highlighting such potential measures were under consideration, has caused much disquiet and frustration amongst members delivering B+E training. You can read that letter here
