As I have told many, it was the best money we have spent. We are so thankful Paul was able to take us on right after we acquired the coach & before we had to tackle the mountains & tunnels of VA & WV. He is an excellent instructor. It was also wonderful to be able to stay on his & Kristina’s farm while learning.
Thanks for providing this learning opportunity. We still have much to learn, but we have some tools & experience now.
Just want to say thanks to you and your Driving School team. This is a very friendly, helpful & professionally run organization!Special thanks and accolades to Paul Metzinger, my RV driving instructor in Casa Grande, AZ. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more qualified instructor. He was patient, friendly, supportive and extremely encouraging! A lot of people know the subject matter they are teaching but cannot teach it to others. Paul CAN!! He told me before the class began that after the 2 day, 8 hour class ended I would feel comfortable & confident driving my 39 ft. motorhome by myself. He was absolutely right!I will not hesitate to recommend your driving school and strongly encourage everyone I talk with here in Tucson — especially women like I — to schedule their driving lessons with Paul Metzinger!
Lesson #L7708. Just a few comments on the RV driving lessons. We met Glyn Carson at the North Ranch Boot Camp and we (both my wife and I) struck up a good rapport with him. My wife was very apprehensive about driving our truck and trailer. Glyn put her at ease at the onset. He had her behind the wheel in 45 minutes. He covered highway driving, ascending and descending grades, the capabilities and limitations of our equipment. We spent considerable time in backing and parking which was superb. There was constant dialogue regarding the action, reaction and consequence of a driving maneuver. I can’t thank Glyn enough for filling our heads with safety as it applies to RVing. If it didn’t cost so much, I’d do it again. I know there is much more to learn. In closing I just want to say thanks to both George and Glyn for making our travels far less stressful. Mission accomplished. Video
I am about to make an unsolicited recommendation. Hubby and I are newbies (Solitude) and just returned from a 2-day RV driving course given by an instructor (Tim Armstrong) at the RV Driving School. Remarkable and beyond outstanding!! We learned how to back in from a variety of angles, to back up “blind”, to parallel park, even to back into a normal space between two trucks! We learned how to drive the highway, how to make sharp turns and how to park at Wal-Mart (to go shopping). We learned how to be comfortable with our width and, when we got home, we got into our extremely difficult parking spot at the storage facility on the second try (only because we misjudged when to start the turn on the first). If you are uncomfortable with your RV, I (we) highly recommend RV Driving School. BTW – we were at Cedar Hill State Park in Texas and to all the other GDs there on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday — hello!
Al Steward was a calm and patient teacher. His feedback was always given in a positive manner and I never felt embarrassed. My initial fears were quickly conquered. I am so pleased with the new found confidence (tempered with much caution and understanding I need practice and experience). But he helped me overcome that first hurdle of even trying it out. He was very knowledgeable and experienced. I received many tips and ideas. I would recommend Al to anyone.Thank you for the service. It was surprisingly easy and your prompt responses and scheduling was appreciated.Al was a calm and patient teacher. His feedback was always given in a positive manner and I never felt embarrassed.

Just wanted to drop a quick line and let you know how much I enjoyed the RV Driving School experience. Chuck was awesome and very easy to work with. I found his insights extremely helpful and the practical driving exercises we did I was able to apply as soon as we got home.The confidence I now have because of taking this class made it worth every penny. I would highly recommend this course and definitely Chuck as the instructor to any one of my friends or family. Thanks.
Last week I completed my driving course with Mr. Charles McLeod in Summerton, SC. and could not be more pleased. My husband is an automotive engineer with a CDL so I had never even sat in the driver’s seat before my lessons. Of course I learned best practices for our RV use and maintenance, as well as driving safety and techniques. However, my favorite lesson concerned the proper attitude! I was worried about holding up traffic when Charles said, “We are RVing, we are not going to work! We stay in our own lane and obey the law and if other folks are in a hurry they can go around us.” That was when I began to relax and enjoy the ride. My husband may never sit in the driver’s seat again!
I took the RV confidence course this weekend with Jim Fischer and was surprised and delighted at how effective it was. I went from being extremely fearful of driving our class A 35 ft. motorhome to feeling able to drive it wherever I need to. That was after the first day. The second day increased my capability and confort level, and addressed the “backing in ” coordination of signaling with my husband.Jim was just great–low key, confidence inspiring, clear with inastruction but a very good and much needed task master. He could not have done better.I cannot recommend this course more highly to anyone from beginner to more experienced but wanting to increase confidence. Thank you so much for offering this course. it will make a significant difference in our RV experience going forward.
I am a little slow in this response, but I wanted you to know how much my wife and appreciated the instruction and overall knowledge we received from our two-day school in Lancaster/Palmdale with Steve Mulcahy. Not only did we learn a lot about driving our 40′ Motorhome, he helped us with many equipment tips and details that we did not receive in our delivery orientation.
As first-time RV owners, we found Steve’s instructions invaluable, and would highly recommend your School to any new Motorhome owner/driver.
I want to thank you for providing this training school for those of us who truly wanted to learn how to operate our rigs! I am an older woman with an even older husband and it’s getting to the point in time where my being able assist in the case of emergency or just to give my husband a break so he has the opportunity to enjoy a bit more of our time on the road.
That being said, my instructor Paul, was a real gem! I learned easily from his clear concise instruction and was left feeling confident that I would be able to take what I had learned and use to benefit my husband and myself as we enjoy our travels!
