Motorhome Manoeuvring Course

The Motorhome Manoeuvring Course builds confidence and covers everything a motorhome driver really needs to know, open to members and non-members alike, and run in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Participants are not required to take a test and tuition is undertaken in your own motorhome.

"Glad I did it. Took away my 'fear' of driving an 8m vehicle. Driving it was not as bad as I thought."

Christine Clews, member, Diss
