Created on October 1, 1937 as a training unit of the Hannover Cavalry School at the Döberitz military training area in the following structure: Cavalry training and test detachment: Headquarters of the Hanover Cavalry School and Wunsdorf Tank School
1. Training squadron of cavalrymen from 4./Reiter-Rgt 2

Later, a training and reconnaissance armored train was transferred under the command of the unit. In 1938, the cavalry training and experimental squad was transferred to the newly built barracks in Krampnitz near Potsdam (later II Panzer School). Another cavalry squadron and a technical squadron of the Krampnitz cavalry school were assigned to the detachment, so that the squadron could act as a training unit simultaneously with a motorized reconnaissance detachment and a divisional reconnaissance detachment. In the fall of 1939, it was planned to transform into a «Cavalry training regiment», the 1st squad was to be equipped with armored vehicles, the 2nd — riders, bycyclists and heavy machine guns. The outbreak of war with Poland prevented this transformation. In early August 1939, a reconnaissance and training detachment was created in the following composition:
— Headquarter
— 1st training squadron (1. Lehrschwadron mit Panzerspäh) with armored cars:  3 SdKfz 232 (8Rad) and 4 SdKfz 222. After the French campaign «Kompanie Waldow» Panzerverband 700 / Heeresgruppe B
— 2nd training squadron with armored cars(1. Lehrschwadron mit PanzerSpäh): as l. Training squadron. Parts of the 2nd training squadron were transferred directly to the Führer's headquarters from the first days of the Polish campaign.
— 3rd training squadron (motorcyclists): 3 rifle platoons (total 9 light machine guns, 2 heavy machine guns, 2 light mortars)
— 4th training squadron (heavy): squad with anti-tank guns 3 x 3.7 cm PaK 36, 1 anti-aircraft coaxial machine gun (Fla), 3 light MG, 1 cavalry. ingineering platoon with 3 light MGs, 1 cavalry artillery platoon with two guns- 7.5 cm, 1 mortar platoon with 2 of 8 cm mortars Gr W 34
— 5th squadron (headquarters): 2 signals units; 1 reconnaissance squad of motorcyclists with 3 light MGs and one anti-tank rifle.
— Supply platoon
— Repair squad
The training squadron (bycyclists) remained in Krampnitz as a training / reserve unit. For the Polish campaign on August 25, 1939, the unit was renamed the «Reconnaissance and Training Detachment» («Aufklärungs-Lehr-Abteilung») and subordinated to the III Army Corps of the 4th Army, and from September 7, 1939 — to the XIX Army Corps.
