The Caravan and Motorhome Club is offering a selection of driving courses aimed at giving tourers peace of mind on the road.

Available at 14 locations across the UK, the Covid-secure courses encompass professional safety information and techniques for driving with a caravan or motorhome.

Running from now until October, the courses could be a good idea for anyone new to caravanning and unaware of what it entails.

They may also prove useful for caravanners that haven’t driven a leisure vehicle in a while and feel they would benefit from a refresher.

The selection of courses on offer include Practical Caravanning, Caravan Manoeuvring and Motorhome Manoeuvring, each of which take less than seven hours to complete.

Alternatively, there’s Practical Caravan Manoeuvring, which is aimed at newbies to caravanning and lasts ten hours split over two days.

Topics covered within the courses include manoeuvring; hitching and towing; safety checks; the laws around caravanning and motorhoming; and loading, along with its impact on towing.

Anyone keen to take one of The Club’s courses can sign up to participate at training centres in Askham Bryan, Darlington, Dumfries, Figheldean, Kettering, Llanelli, Llay, Macclesfield, Newark, Plumpton, West Bromwich, Winchester, Worcester or Stoke Climsland.

Prices start at £159 per person and include a copy of the Club’s Essential Guide to Touring, which retails at £16.

Those who complete one of the courses will also find it could have a positive impact on their insurance premium, with the Club offering a five per cent reduction on its own policies.

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.”
