My husband and I are so pleased with the trading we received from Rui. He took the time to understand our history and our objectives to become more proficient driving our new 40’ Holiday Rambler Endeavor. We recently upgraded from a 2019 32’ Jayco Precept to this diesel rig and quickly figured out that we had entered a much higher category that required much more skill than we had acquired over the past 4 years of driving smaller motor homes. Rui put us through our paces with right and left turns and residential and highway driving, including emergency stopping, and best of all…backing up.Please pass along our thanks and praise to Rui.Take good care,Sandy and Denny K.BTW- as new full-time RVers, we’ve been passing along our experience with the RV Driving School which most folks weren’t aware of, and have expressed their interest in (particularly with spouses that are nervous or don’t want to drive). Personally, I am a woman that LOVES to drive!
I just completed my 2 days of RV drivers training with Gary. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. Gary was patient, broke everything down into understandable components and was relaxed throughout. I have talked up the benefits of doing the class to other Renegaders. Definitely a 5 star experience.
Lance was kind, considerate and extremely helpful!!!He was very detailed in explaining everything, and made sure that I understood. we did a complete setup and went over different points with me and at the end he told me I did a great job…. which made me very happy. We have a 32ft and I am the sole driver!One point when getting out of the rig ….I mentioned that I did not know how to use a fire extioner. He took it out and went step by step, how to hold it when pulling the pin, and what happens with the levers and making sure to tell me that you start at the bottom, where the fire began and sweep up! Then he made me do it from the start 🙂I had told him that I went to my local fire department for instructions and they told me I should just google it… I was extremely pissed and he was shocked.I would recommend Lance to anyone with a rig!!!
I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful my RV Driving School Instructor was. Gary Goldsberry was punctual, professional, warm and very organized. Both days – September 14 and 15, 2023 – he was well prepared with a clear plan which he shared upon arrival. We discussed his expectations and mine – his keen listening skills were fantastic.I SO appreciated Gary’s praise with my grasp of his directives and stern corrections when I “stumbled”.Gary respected my boundaries always entering the RV through the Cab…I live aboard full time so I was learning to drive my home!The best gift Gary gave me was newfound love and appreciation for my Renegade RV. Thanks to his detailed tutelage, I am fully confident with my ability to drive a beautifully built Freightliner Truck. I will forever be indebted to Gary.
I hope that you are well. I completed my RV Driver Training last Saturday. I am a novice and the class was very helpful to me. I have gained skills and confidence. Ken Shockley was a very patient teacher. He was relaxed, which helped me to be relaxed. He made suggestions that were pertinent to my situation. I appreciate his help with my driving and backing up very much.
Dear Mr. Mayleben,I had a wonderful experience at RV driving school.My instructor, Mike Wertz did an amazing job at communicating how to drive my travel trailer. He never seemed to be anxious, always remained calm, and was very easy to work with. He included things I would not have imagined like observing gas station easy entry and exit, importance of tire maintenance, and even how to use the commercial scales.My husband and I would rate our experience a definite 10 out of 10.I sent my friend to him after our great experience and she felt the same. I’ve been driving across country and on my way to Canada. Again, we appreciate Mike as he is an excellent instructor!Thanks so much for your service. It was a wonderful experience.

Dear John, I cannot thank you enough. For working out my lesson. I couldn’t have been paired with a cooler instructor. Jordy Bender has a perfect demeanor for teaching. He is extremely observant, knowledgeable & confident. With excellent credentials for teaching, he is still respectful, kind & someone you always want to know. He’s a treasure. I don’t want to sound corny. But, I’ve wanted to drive big rigs since I can remember. But, there is an intimidation factor. With Jordy as my instructor, that all vanished. He is so mellow and confident. That his attitude seemed to transfer to me. I am already driving our 40ft. & tow vehicle. And, will forever be grateful to you “all” for making it happen.
Also, if being locked in the MH was any indication of how this trip had been. Then you might have an idea of the hurdles….just to get to FMCA Gillette, WY.
Thank you so very much!
I have had several people, both men & and women, ask me if it was worth it? I can say, with extreme certainty: yes!
I will definitely recommend your driving school.

I am the Director of our Mobile Lab at Indiana Wesleyan University. My name is Carla Biro my team recently completed a training with Mike.He was a phenomenal instructor and able to provide logistical resources that will aid in properly launching this area’s first Mobile Career Lab service. Day #1 was informative, and we gained invaluable information regarding maintenance, parking, and turns.On the second day, I was able to complete a 4-hour instructor training with Mike. Using the words empathetic and supportive do not do justice to this experience. He was a great instructor putting me at ease with driving the R.V. with total comfortability toward the end.I would give him a 10/10 and believe he is a great asset to your team.Best,
Steve was a great instructor. He was patient, had a good sense of humor, and put me at ease. I got lots of practice on things that I was the most uncomfortable with. He made soft, calm, correction instructions when needed, so I never felt like I was driving badly – just slipped up now and then, but I got better and better as the lesson progressed. He always gave the “why” behind any instruction, which was really helpful. I appreciate the time he spent with me. It made all the difference in my willingness and ability to drive my RV. Thanks, Steve!!!

Thank you, George Mayleben,Both my husband and I took your RV Driving School’s two day training class on August 20th & 21st, 2023, in North Port, Florida, and gained more knowledge than we thought possible. We recently purchased a 35 foot Class A diesel motorhome, and driving it was a little intimidating, to say the least. My husband, Chris, was far more experienced than I was, so our instructor, Joe Powell, had his hands full with instructing me, as I was as inexperienced as they came. Maybe that’s better, since he didn’t have to “retrain” me!! Even though Chris and I both grew up with all sizes of motorhomes in our lives, I had absolutely no desire to drive one, and never bothered to learn. I left all the driving to Chris. So all I wanted was for Joe to show me enough driving skills so that I could drive if Chris became tired or sick, and I had to take over. Chris could have instructed me on how to drive an RV, but you know how that goes!! It doesn’t!! So an RV driving school was the only way to go for us, especially me, and thankfully, Joe wasn’t about to just give the minimum training to either of us. He cut NO corners!!From the moment we met Joe, we felt comfortable, like we had known him all our lives. We practiced in a large empty parking lot, where I for one learned how to start the RV, how to safely drive forward and backwards, how to safely stop in all kinds of scenarios, and how to turn and back the RV into a campsite. Once I was comfortable, it was my turn for Joe to take me out on the highway. No sooner on the road, than we had a mechanical problem, as the RV would only go at about 15 miles per hour, pedal to the metal. It was at this point that I became a little nervous. Joe calmly helped me get the RV to a safe location, where we pulled out the owner’s manual, and checked and rechecked all the gauges and diagnostic information on the dashboard. Fortunately, after we sat for a few minutes, everything returned quickly to normal. Joe got me right back out on the highway, where I learned to drive in the rain (as more luck would have it), as well as how to drive on the Interstate. His mannerisms, along with a soft but firm voice, made us feel comfortable. We are now able to get ourselves out of difficult situations and can easily drive in whatever circumstances we’re faced with. But more importantly, Chris and I had a tremendous amount of fun and enjoyment taking this class. Joe also took into consideration my recent medical condition (cancer), and easily adapted his training to accommodate me. Chris has a mild learning disorder, and Joe was able to adapt to that, too.Joe even went so far as to instruct me on how to be a better co-pilot, and what I should be doing to assist Chris while I’m sitting in the co-pilot’s chair. And we also discussed how to safely get to the rear of the motorhome, as it’s traveling down the road at highway speeds. So now with Joe’s wisdom under our belts, we’re far more comfortable driving the RV. And I will no longer just let Chris do all the driving. Joe’s final words to us were, “the more driving you do, the better you will get”. How true!!Thank you, Joe Powell and RV Driving School, for teaching this 70 year old no longer inexperienced woman on how to drive a motorhome, as well as giving Chris some very good advice, much needed experience, and a little “retraining” (LOL). You never lost your patience with either of us, not one time; and you never raised your voice. More importantly, you made it fun and entertaining. We may be back soon for you to instruct us on how to safely tow our “toad”. Again, I’m the inexperienced one, not Chris.In closing, we are most happy with the training we received and will highly recommend RV Driving School to anyone who asks. More importantly, we’ll go back to the dealership that sold us our RV and tell them how pleased we were with both Joe Powell and RV Driving School. It was money well spent!!Sincerely,
