The candidate will be allowed up to 15 driving faults. Overall 16 driving faults or recording numerous repeated driving faults on the same fault will result in an unsuccessful test.
If the candidate records one serious fault (one in which a potential danger occurred) or one dangerous fault (and actual danger occurred) the test will be marked as unsuccessful.
The candidate must demonstrate correct, safe and best practice techniques when uncoupling and coupling the combination/outfit. The must ensure that the trailer is secured by applying the handbrake before beginning the uncoupling process and then uncouple in the correct sequence to avoid potential dangerous or damage to other road users, other vehicles or property. Before releasing the 'breakaway' cable, the candidate must ensure that the trailer is secure.
Before coupling the candidate must ensure that the trailer is legal and road worthy as well as within the technical permissible towing weight (TPTW) of the vehicle. They must demonstrate the safety checks correctly before attempting to hitch and must always ensure that the handbrake is on before carrying out the checks.

To complete the exercise the trailer must be positioned within the yellow painted box without striking the barrier to the rear of the trailer.
The candidate is allowed to shunt the vehicle forward twice only and is allowed to exit the vehicle once only to inspect the final position of the trailer within the yellow painted box and re-enter the vehicle to adjust the position of the trailer if required.
