Jimmy Johnson was the best.  We had a great “Back-up” class and practiced other maneuvers as well.  Jimmy is a great instructor and gave my spouse and I more confidence in our motorhome driving abilities.  Thanks for all.

Our apologies for not doing this feedback sooner.  Things have just been busy since we spent two and a half days in driver training with Roger Keil near Hilton Head, SC on March 14-16, 2022.
We first want to thank Roger for the effort he put into our 2 days of driving, as well as the follow-up “walk-around” day.  We both gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and skill, especially Chris who had never sat behind the wheel and didn’t even know how to start the engine!  Mark knew how to drive our coach as we previously had a similar coach for a few years, but he also definitely benefitted from Roger’s wealth of experience, knowledge, and his priceless communication style.
In addition to the value to Chris, which was mainly based on safety in the event Mark somehow becomes incapacitated and can’t drive our coach, and to gain a better understanding of the special challenges of driving a big motorhome, she also thought it was important for Mark to be in the navigator seat for a while.
In two days, Roger brought Chris from knowing nothing to being able to actually drive, maneuver, and understand our 40’11” coach! It was truly amazing.  She did not know what to expect but certainly didn’t think she would spend as much time driving alongside 18 wheelers on I-95, on city expressways with fast-merging traffic, through narrow downtown streets, over tall bridges, etc. Of course, that is what was needed and it is probably a good thing that she didn’t know all of that ahead of time.
She was not interested in being the primary driver of our coach, or even driving it a lot, but now feels confident that she can drive if she needs to. We plan to have her practice periodically while at home and have done that once since we arrived back north. She will continue to build her skills and gain experience on our trips.
Since our training, Chris has talked up the value of such driver training, especially for co-pilots like herself, to all of our friends who also have RVs. Most of our female co-pilot friends are afraid to attempt driving their rigs (some pull-behinds) as Chris was but she encouraged them to even take a customized backing course. We don’t think any of them had really thought about taking a course but are hoping they will.
We purchased the 1/2 day walk-around training sort of as an after-thought, but, once again, it was extremely valuable as Roger had much knowledge of all of our systems. He didn’t rush through anything and answered all our questions.
We’ll attempt to attach a couple of photos to this email and hope they go through.
Thank you, Roger, for our personalized training days!  It was an outstanding experience for both of us, and we do sincerely hope our paths will cross again.
Sincerely,

Chris and Mark S

What can I say?  Your instructor did a great job of turning me into someone who can drive my 45’ motor coach.  I had no prior experience and was nervous about my ability to learn enough in one weekend to be successful.  But Herb Milligan drew on his vast experience to impart enough knowledge that I am confident with a little more practice on the pre-driving inspection I will have my non-commercial class B license.

 

Herb is a great guy beyond trucking.  He is Chief of his local fire department.  Army veteran.  And leader of a Boy Scout troop.  He makes our country better through his every day actions.  And he does it with an attitude of “no big deal” “its what everyone should do”.  In a time when our nation is divided and struggling with overwhelming problems, more Herb Milligans are just what we need.

 

Thank you so much for RV Driving School.  Your organization delivers what you say.  I am a fan.

I am 100% satisfied and couldn’t be more pleased with my instructor Darrel Bright. After the first day of instruction I  felt confident and comfortable behind the wheel of our motorhome.
Thanks for putting me in such good hands!

Thank you for the Certificate of Completion.  The RV driving course was well worth the time and money spent. My husband (and our dog) rode along as observers.

I chose your school because the 8-hour course is spread over a two-day period.  There is a driving school near us, but all the information is crammed into one eight-hour day.  That is too exhausting. .

Why we highly recommend our instructor, Darrel Bright, to our friends:

  1. He is a very patient and kind teacher.
  2. His instructions are clear and easy to understand.
  3. He always commends when something is done correctly.
  4. He is always positive, never negative. Mistakes can be a learning opportunity.
  5. He uses illustrations to make his points clear, which I appreciate since I am a visual learner.
  6. He exhibits a high degree of professionalism.
  7. He likes dogs.

I am a newbie, but I learned how to tow and back up a travel trailer correctly, and most of all, I now feel much more comfortable and confident on the road. Hopefully, this means that I will be a safer driver.

Thank you for providing this valuable service.

    I am writing to highly recommend the RV Driving School and my instructor, Joe Powell. Joe is knowledgeable about RVs and about driving them. He is cautious and spent time learning about our RV, it’s turning radius and performance before he continued with my lesson. He is quite patient as he repeats directives. He never appeared flustered or concerned about my performance, but in fact was quite complimentary .This certainly helped instill confidence in my driving ability.
    Joe explained the sequence and the details of the lesson prior to beginning the teaching . That was helpful to establish expectations and reduce anxiety about the lesson. The lesson was thorough. There were numerous important aspects which I think are very important to RV driving and safety  which Joe covered well.
     In summary, I would certainly recommend this course to others and would recommend Joe as their instructor.

Joe Powell was helpful, patient, respectful, and very thorough in his driving instruction.  I felt very comfortable driving my 33.5 foot RV when we were finished with our lessons.  I appreciate his time and his expertise!  Thanks so much!

In your email, you asked that we express any concerns or suggestions.  I would like to express my concerns about your driving trainer, Pat Kleinbrook. I am concerned that, with her training skills, she may become overloaded with requests for her services as a trainer!  LOL
 My husband Ray and myself thoroughly enjoyed working with Pat. I was a bit anxious and intimidated by our rig and learning to drive it.  I had called and spoke with Pat before my training asking if there would be an agenda and what to expect.  She told me the first 4 hours would be learning to back it up. I thought to myself “oh great, I’ll flunk before I even start”.
From the moment we sat in the motorhome, Pat put me completely at ease.  She was very informative on what we were going to do and then had me perform what was requested.  She gave instructions in a way that was calming and encouraging because everyone had to start at the beginning to learn these skills.  I WAS able to relax and the lessons went by with a breeze.  I have already referred several of my female friends who wish to learn to drive their motorhomes,  to take this course and to ask for Pat Kleinbrook as she was exceptionally easy yet professional to work with.
Thank you, I was so glad to have found your company/service to help me to be safe and confident on the road.
Sincerely,
Susan
PS.  I am the one backing up a Palazzo motorhome in the video Pat sent you.  I believe you requested permission to use it as a training video.  I told Pat and will tell you that would be fine.
Thanks again.

Hi:  I finished a two-day, 8 hour course today, with Darryl Bright.  Darryl is a great instructor and got me as far as my capability allowed.  I am very comfortable with driving the RV now.  I did OK on backing up but definitely need more practice.  Darryl gave me the information I need to succeed at that too, with more practice.  I guess that will be my homework.  I give Darryl five stars.

You have a great program and I was very, very glad that it was available.
