Beginners Caravanning Course

Our Beginners Course is aimed at people just like you; suitable for first time caravanners or those returning after a break. You’ll learn new skills and gain confidence with the help of our team of instructors and your fellow attendees.

What’s covered?

All of our courses are delivered by professional driving instructors. You’ll learn how to:

  • Load your caravan safely
  • Level your caravan
  • Hitch and unhitch
  • Manoeuvre through a slalom course

You will also have a one-to-one driving session with an instructor, who will assess your driving and give you advice and tips while on the move.

As well as the practical course, you’ll start your day with a classroom session, where you’ll discover some of the legalities you need to be aware of when you’re on the road.

Rosamund Kitchen says
This was an invaluable experience and gave me a lot of confidence and knowledge on how to manoeuvre the caravan.

Be prepared

We’ll provide the caravan for you to tow, but you’ll need to bring your own car fitted with a tow bar and your own towing mirrors, and spare registration plate.

You’ll also need to bring your driving licence, car insurance and MOT.  You'll be asked to do a simple eye-test before going out on the road.

Only one person per vehicle can participate in the course.  If two of you would like to attend, you will need to book separate days or bring two tow vehicles.  All our courses are offered on both Saturday and Sunday of the same weekend, so why not make a break of it and stay overnight nearby?

The course costs £150 for members.
