Caravan and Motorhome Club launches its 2019 professional driving courses


The courses have been designed specifically to give tourers additional peace of mind before they head off on their touring adventure.

Running from February to October, each training course provides professional safety instructions and caravanning techniques. Sessions include:

  • Manoeuvring advice
  • Hitching and towing safely
  • Straightforward safety checks
  • Understanding the laws that affect caravanning
  • Practice in manoeuvring an outfit forwards and backwards
  • Understanding loading and how it affects towing

The training courses are split into: Practical Caravan Manoeuvring; Caravan Manoeuvring; and Motorhome Manoeuvring. The training can be completed within seven hours, whilst those who are completely new to caravanning can choose the Practical Caravan Manoeuvring course which offers 10 hours of professional instruction split over a day and a half. 

The Practical Caravanning Course was devised in co-operation with the Road Transport Industry Training Board. Each training centre is staffed by professional Instructors and the courses are designed to be as enjoyable as they are informative.

Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club said; “We are delighted to be able to offer these important courses to tourers. The courses provide excellent value for money and mean that people have the confidence to relax and enjoy their touring adventure with real peace of mind.”

The courses cost:

  • Practical Caravanning Course - £180.00
  • Caravan Manoeuvring Course - £150.00
  • Motorhome Manoeuvring Course - £180.00

Participants also benefit from the opportunity to save five percent on Club caravan cover, motorhome insurance and car insurance for a new policy or at the next renewal.  Evidence of course completion is required.
