Towing a Trailer – Are You Legal?

By | Blog | No Comments

The Swilly Group is running a number of FREE information evenings on the regulation around towing of Trailers.  There has always been a cloud of confusion around the requirements on towing a trailer with a car, van or Jeep.  “Am I legal?” is a common question thrown out by many a confused farmer, landscaper or construction contractor.  There are a number of checks that need to be carried out before you can be confident you are driving a legal trailer-vehicle combination.

The first check to be carried out is whether the driver has the correct licence category for the trailer vehicle combination?  A car licence (category B) allows a driver to tow a small trailer up to a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 750 Kg and in some cases slightly higher under certain conditions.  For heavier trailers the driver is required to hold a BE category on the licence.
The trailer size is then restricted by the manufacturers’ specification, which is up to a maximum trailer gross weight of 3,500 kg.

The second check is whether you are compliant with the Manufacturers Specifications regarding the weight being transported by the Trailer and Vehicle combination.  Am I exceeding the Trailer Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW)?  Am I exceeding the Vehicle Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW)? And finally, am I exceeding the Vehicle Gross Train Weight (GTW)?  The vehicle GVW and GTW will be marked on a small aluminium plate usually positioned inside the door frame of the car, jeep or van.

To find out more on the regulations around towing of trailer, why not attend one of our free seminars.  The Swilly Group is running a number of FREE information evenings on Towing of Trailers on Tuesday 24thSeptember and Thursday 3rd October 2013 at their offices on Business Park Road, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.  To book a place, call (074) 91 51212 or email info@swillygroup.com.

By | News | No Comments

Letterkenny based training company the Swilly Group has secured additional Momentum funding for 80 places on their new and innovative driving programmes the Fuel Efficient Bus/Coach Driver and the Fuel Efficient Truck Driver. Both programmes will start in October 2013 and will run in Letterkenny and Dublin.  Recruitment for these programmes is currently ongoing.

Momentum is a training fund set up in 2012 by the Irish Government to allow private training providers provide innovative training to the long term unemployed in conjunction with FAS and the Department of Social Protection.  In phase 1 of Momentum, which is still ongoing, the Swilly Group has successfully rolled out training courses in Healthcare Support
(specialising in Intellectual Disabilities), Computer Networking and Maintenance and Export and Transport Management
.

 

The new Fuel Efficient Truck and Bus/Coach Driver programmes are specifically designed to allow persons who are long term unemployed acquire the skills, knowledge and receive job seeking support to secure employment as a truck or bus driver.
The courses syllabus includes Initial Driver CPC training, pre-test driving lessons, RoSPA Advanced Driver Training,
Fuel Efficient Driver Training and Job Seeking Support
.  The Truck Driver course also includes ADR Driver Training and the Bus/Coach Driver course includes Occupational First Aid and Customer Service training.  A 12 week work placement module is also included in both programmes.
Swilly Group Managing Director Brian Sweeney said, “We are delighted to secure this additional funding for both the Truck and Bus/Coach Driver programmes”.  “We will be starting a Truck and Bus Course in October in both Letterkenny and Dublin”. Brian continues, “The Swilly Group is one of the largest providers of training under Momentum and the Fuel Efficient Truck and Bus/Coach Driver courses are the only driving courses that have been funded under Momentum in the country”.  “Our success has been largely due to the fact that we engaged with local employers during the tendering stage and built the
programmes to meet their specific needs”. “Furthermore, each of our courses involves an extended period of work placement, which gives the learner an opportunity to demonstrate to an employer that they can add value to their organisation”.
Persons interested in applying for the Fuel Efficient Bus/Coach Driver course or the Fuel Efficient Truck Driver course can do so by contacting their local Department of Social Protection Office or by calling the  Swilly Group office directly on (074) 91 51212.
