2016 motorhome and caravan training courses


The courses will be available at 16 venues across the UK and are open to both beginners and experienced caravanners keen to refresh their skills and build their confidence ahead of their UK or European getaways.

The courses are designed to help drivers to feel secure in their abilities and include manoeuvring practice as well as advice on how to maintain and check your motorhome and caravan. All courses are led by friendly professional instructors at locations approved by The Caravan Club.

With three types of courses available, caravan and motorhome owners can choose from course locations up and down the country, including a new venue for 2016 at RSM Driver Training in Basildon, Essex where members can take advantage of the motorhome courses on offer.

To tailor its training The Caravan Club requires motorhome owners to use their own vehicles. Caravan owners are required to bring their own car with The Club providing 50 purpose built Adria Altea 32 LH Fourth Style caravans.

Course types available include:

  • Practical Caravanning Course – full day and half day courses available for beginners from £165
  • Caravanning Manoeuvring Course – full day courses available from £140
  • Motorhome Manoeuvring Course – full day courses available from £165 (available at 13 locations)

Nick Lomas, Director General, The Caravan Club commented:

“Providing training courses for new and experienced members is key to us ensuring that British holidaymakers are well-equipped with safety tips and manoeuvring advice to ensure that they feel confident and prepared ahead of UK and European getaways. We continue to offer courses at locations across the UK and are delighted to add the Basildon training centre for members in the Essex area.”
