My wife took your course with Jim Fischer in New Bern, NC. She had driven one of our previous motor homes- one time- thirty years ago- for about 10 miles and said NO WAY can I do this. After 2 days with Jim, she was amazed at how easy to drive our MH is! After her 2 days of instruction and driving with Jim, she made her DMV test appointment and passed with flying colors! My hat is off to you for the course, but especially to Jim Fischer for his excellent instruction. I knew trying to teach my wife to drive the MH myself was not a good idea, but Jim was up to the task. Putting both of us at ease and starting by teaching us backing and hand signals was great- and we can now back and park without frustration and fear of damage to our coach. But even greater is the ability to share the driving and maybe go a little further each day. You have a wonderful asset in Jim and his ability to teach and give the confidence needed to drive these homes on wheels. I would recommend your RV school to anyone- and especially recommend Jim! (North Carolina requires at least a Class B non CDL to drive a MH over 26000 lbs. My wife had taken the written test and obtained her permit for the Class A non CDL prior to the course.)
Thanks for putting together an excellent program. I just had a lesson with Greg Pyke in Miami. His instructions were well thought out and clear, and the exercises were extremely helpful for me as a newbie with very little large vehicle experience. Greg spent plenty of extra time preparing for the lesson by scouting out locations and routes for me to practice. He was a great instructor and the program already gave me knowledge that I may have never learned just by doing. Thanks, Lee
My name is Jo Ann and Wendy was my instructor for my lessons. I will keep this short and sweet. She was knowledgeable and passed on her knowledge to me. I had driven a motor home many, many years ago but not near the length of ours now – 36ft. I walked away from the lessons saying another 36 or even a 38ft would be fine.
Thanks to Wendy, over the New Year weekend I drove from Thousand Oaks, CA to the Mohave Desert, in the rain and wind and did great. Maybe I was a truck drive in a previous life! All I know is I could not have had the confidence and knowledge I had without Wendy.
I completed my lesson with Lorrin Walsh on Thursday and really feel much more confident pulling my 5th wheel. His book and explanations helped me understand how the trailer turns and backs. He also went above anything expected on the second day in trying to figure out why I was not getting brake connections to the trailer. We were unable to solve the problem but he tried. He helped me plan a route to get out of my driveway, again, something he did not have to do. I would recommend his services to anyone.
Michael was simply exceptional. Not only because of his extreme skills, experience, and training methods, but also his care to carefully select excellent practice sites. His use of wireless headsets for all three of us enabled him to always be able to teach, monitor, explain and answer our questions on a real time basis. He was completely prepared and had many safety cones, and a special measuring device to ensure the cones for various maneuvers were as tight as possible for our specific Coach whether driving back and forth around cones, backing, or parallel parking. In addition, because we were in the process of taking delivery of our new 2017 Cornerstone in Atlanta, he showed great flexibility and willingness to work with our unpredictable schedule between his commitments. He made it work beautifully, and taught us many things and also stressed how even as a 30+ year professional, he treats ever day in the Driver’s seat as his first day. A great, very valuable experience. We highly recommend Michael Lynch and RV Driving School.
I really enjoyed the weekend lessons w/ Glynn Carson. I learned a lot, not only about driving w/ an RV, but also about other aspects of the RV lifestyle. I appreciated Glyn’s patience and professionalism.Just a note: At the last minute of the lesson on the 2nd day I asked Glyn if we could drive through a gas station. That was a great experience, and I wish I could have practiced that more w/ Glyn at my side. I think driving through a gas station and learning how to position the RV relative to the pump should be a part of the lesson plan. Just a suggestion.
My wife and I completed your 2 day/6 hour RV school this last weekend in Grand Prairie TX with your instructor Tim Armstrong. I want you know of our high regards for Tim as an instructor and a professional. We had no background in 5th wheel towing and Tim has given us a solid basic foundation that we can build on. Tim was patient, attentive and absolutely knew his stuff. His parking lot basic skills activities instilled confidence in a safe environment where both my wife and I could ask questions without the pressures of learning on the road. By the second day, my wife who has never towed any kind of trailer had the confidence to drive around Ft. Worth and she actually enjoyed it. Tim’s focus on safety, skills and teaching situational awareness really impressed us. I will recommend your school and Tim Armstrong at every opportunity.
My wife Rebecca and I were very pleased with our RV driving lesson. Dan Sheppard, the instructor, was very knowledgeable and patient with both of us.
We enjoyed our class and feel that the class gave us the necessary skills and confidence to enjoy driving our new 40′ diesel pusher motor coach. Dan was great at answering our questions and made it a point, throughout our lesson, to ask if we had any more questions before proceeding to the next topic.
I will and have already recommended your driving school and Dan Sheppard to friends who are interested in your class. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience we had getting to know our new motorhome and how to drive it with confidence.
I’ve attached a photo with Michael Lynch and our family.
We just wanted to let you know what a great job Michael Lynch did teaching my husband and I how to navigate our new Forest River Georgetown RV.
Michael was both professional and knowledgeable; we truly appreciated all his credentials and had complete confidence in everything he was teaching us.
Prior to the training, I literally had no experience driving our Class A vehicle except for the test drive we did on the highway. My confidence was extremely low, my husband had more experience and felt pretty comfortable for the most part.
Although, by the end of the second day, both my husband and I had done a 180 on our level of competence and comfort to head out on the open road. Michael was extremely encouraging and was sure to cover both “classroom” and application of what we needed to do to be successful for our adventure.
We highly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for training on their rigs!!
My wife, Carolyn, and I completed the RV Driving School with Lorrin Walsh. I have the highest praise and respect for the experience we had. My wife had virtually no experience towing or backing a trailer and my experience was what I got from the dealer (not bad) and teaching myself. My wife was dreading the experience, but came away smiling and feeling competent and confident in her ability to safely tow and back our trailer. I leaned tips and techniques that I wish I’d known five years ago when we bought the trailer. Lorrin’s lesson plans were obviously well thought out and well executed. He exposed us to most all the driving and cornering situations we can expect to encounter.
In my view I think anyone who is going to tow a trailer should take a course like this.
