Motorhome driving and caravan towing training courses announced
Whether you’re new to motorhoming or caravanning or just want to increase your confidence towing or driving bigger vehicles, a training course can help.
The Caravan and Motorhome Club has a range of courses taking place at 14 locations across the UK until October. The club is also partnering with Go!Driving to offer B+E driving licence courses and tests. All courses are COVID-secure.
- Practical Caravanning: aimed at people who are completely new to caravanning (costs £189)
- Caravan Manoeuvring (costs £159)
- Motorhome Manoeuvring (costs £189)
The latter two manouevring couses take less than seven hours, while the practical caravanning course involves 10 hours of training over two days.
Subjects covered include:
- Manoeuvring advice
- Straightforward safety checks
- Understanding the law
- Manoeuvring practice
- The caravan course will also cover hitching and towing safely, as well as loading.
For drivers (who passed their test after January 1,1997) wanting to tow larger vehicles, a B+E licence is commonly needed, and the club can now offer combined towing training and tests at nine Go!Driving centres.
Prices vary with a one-day course costing £390 (£444 in London and southeast locations), plus a £115 test fee. Two-day courses are £720 (£822 for London and southeast), plus the test fee. If you want to do the course as a couple, there’s a three-day option priced at £1,200 (£1,308 London and southeast), plus a £230 test fee.
Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership Services at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this excellent range of courses to new and seasoned tourers alike, as we know everyone is excited to get back out on the road. These COVID-Secure courses provide great value for money and mean that people have the confidence to relax and enjoy their touring adventure with real peace of mind.”
