Just a quick note to let you know my thoughts on the training. My instructor was Michael Lynch – and he was very good at assessing my knowledge and finding my weaknesses so that we could focus on those areas. By the time we left the parking lot to go out on the road, I was much more at ease – and was even comfortable carrying on a conversation while driving. Michael’s depth of knowledge through his many years of experience was helpful as I had specific questions of which he was able to answer. I would recommend this course to anyone – including those who have experience in driving RVs and want to refresh their knowledge and learn something new that might save their lives.

Thoroughly enjoyed having Tim Armstrong as our instructor. Tim had lesson plans that were extremely helpful. Tim went the extra mile to make sure we are ready for the road. His lessons were spot on in covering all the important points to driving a motor home. Super friendly, personable and knowledgeable are attributes which Tim has that make the lessons flow smoothly from one step to the next. Tim has also made himself available if we have any questions down the road. Thanks again Tim. You were terrific! I think you deserve a raise

I am so thankful we saw the brochure when we bought our motor coach.  The time spent with Michael Lynch was the most important training I think we have had.  I wish I knew about this school before we bought our previous travel trailer.
A few words about the lessons and the instructor.
·         Michael was very prompt and kept our attention 100% of the time
·         Michael was able to challenge both myself and Linda even though we were at different levels
·         Michael made it fun but maintain a high level of seriousness
·         Michael was able to read Linda’s fears, concerns and actions throughout the class, he kept her focused and challenged
·         Michael read my skills immediately and altered driving challenges to keep me on my toes
·         Michael lead a discussion on items needed to be a safe RV’er.  Several items we had but there where items we never thought of that we have now added to our equipment
·         Michael shared stories of his experiences that we were able to relate to our experiences and expectations
Thank you for having the foresight to set up such a training program.  I have shared information with several at our storage location and told them of our positive experiences.
Again thank you and please thank Michael again for us on a job well done.
I am copying this to Linda so she can reply if she wants to add to this.

I recently had the privilege of having Mike Stewart as my driving instructor.  Mike was fantastic as a teacher.  I had never towed a fifth wheel before, and was about to depart with my wife on a 750 mile road trip from Denton, TX to Colorado Springs with our new rig.  Mike started with an hour of safety and how to properly hitch up the fifth wheel hitch on the rig.  We then spent seven hours and 60 miles on the road teaching me how to properly maneuver – everything from backing, to parking, turning, stopping, and maintaining my distance and center of my lane on the highway.  Mike also showed me how to correctly use the tow haul feature on my truck, along with the engine braking feature.

During our two-day road trip from Denton to Colorado Springs we encountered Texas heat, torrential downpours (including a system that was spawning tornadoes in the Texas Panhandle),100 miles of dense fog, a mountain pass (Raton, NM), and as we were arriving in Colorado Springs, snow.  Through it all, using the towing lessons Mike taught me, we never had a single issue on the road with our new rig.  I recommend the RV Driving School to inexperienced RV drivers, and I especially recommend Mike Stewart as an instructor.  For me, this was money well spent.

My wife and I were in Casa Grande, AZ, on March 14-15, 2019, and received training for our 43-foot Grand Design Solitude fifth-wheel trailer from Mr. Paul Griffith.  Attached is a copy of our evaluation of Paul’s training.  He is an asset to the RV Driving School and an exceptional instructor.

I just wanted to take a moment to send a quick thank you note to you for the excellent quality of your school and the great experience that we had.
Our instructor, Michael Lynch was a real professional, who took the time not only to teach us in a classroom setting but also made sure we knew how to drive our big rig.
Although I had driven heavy equipment before, prior to the class, I was pretty nervous about taking our Class A diesel pusher across the country with my wife and six children relying on me to keep them safe on the road.
My wife wouldn’t even dare to drive it and was leery of agreeing to be a backup driver for me at all.

Michael’s 40+ years of experience in the bus business, as well as his 12+ years teaching were invaluable in helping us learn and drive safely. He has us learn how to drive through the serpentine cone course backwards and forwards, (literally), as well as negotiate tight spots, back into a simulate camping spot, do three point turns to get out of jams, parallel park, and many other maneuvers prior to driving. Then, we headed to an empty commercial lot, with lots of roads and turn-offs, and finally we went on the road. By the time we hit the road and drove for a few hours, we both we no longer nervous, and were equipped to drive our RV well. Michael tailored his teaching to our needs and was patient, encouraging, accommodating and helpful throughout.

After the class, I felt that I understood and was able to execute all of the necessary skills to drive my motorhome safely. I don’t ever want to be over-confident, but I am glad to say that I am confident that I can handle the motorhome like I wanted to now.
My wife is now confident that she can take over driving for me while we’re on the road, to allow me to get some rest. I couldn’t be happier with our instructor and our experience overall.

Paul Metzinger was very knowledgeable about driving a RV and also had many helpful hints about ownership of the coach. We would definitely recommend Paul to anyone looking to gain knowledge about the safe handling of an RV.

Ken Shockley was my instructor. Ken listened to me and took notes on my goals. I can’t say enough about Ken’s positive and supportive teaching style. He coached me and I did things I never would have tried on my own.
His words will be with me as I drive on. I feel confident in my ability to plan ahead and get set up to be successful. He reviewed my goals to make sure I had accomplished them. He tailored my lessons to my concerns.
This class was exactly what I needed and I am so glad I did it. And so glad to have met Ken and have instructions from him.
Thank you for making me a safer more confident driver.

My wife and I both took the RV Driving school here in North Georgia earlier this week. This is our 1st experience with an RV and we had actually just took possession of our 2012  40 foot Tiffin Allegro Bus the week before. ( Coastal RV in South Carolina allowed us to delay picking it up as we were busy finalizing the closing of the sale of our home and needed to get our possessions moved to storage quickly. )

Our instructor, Michael Lynch, was in contact with us during that time and even came to the RV park where we stayed and assisted us with backing into the campsite and getting everything hooked up properly.  His nearly 40 years as a professional driver and the numerous driver safety schools he had taken and given throughout his career, along with having had his own RV for years, gave him an extremely thorough knowledge on the subject.

Michael is a natural at being an instructor.  He was able to read our expressions and tell when we understood him in the classroom portion of the training and add another example when we needed it.  During the hands on driving instruction, he showed a lot of patience in being able to explain what we would do in each situation, walking us through performing maneuvers multiple times until we were comfortable, and explaining the importance of each practice obstacle in real life driving terms.

In our RV newbie situation, an old saying comes to mind…  you don’t know what you don’t know until you know it.  We did not know how important the mirrors are to driving such a large vehicle, nor the importance of proper alignment.  Our passenger mirror was not properly mechanically aligned and not able to be adjusted to full range of motion so Michael brought his tools out and helped with this as well,  We are scheduling to have an RV service shop repair or replace the mirror assembly.

That brings me to the one comment that could have made our training better.  A short set of emailed instructions, a video or a suggested U-tube link for new RV’ers  on mirror adjustment would have provided us with the heads up to have the problem corrected prior to starting the class.  Thankfully, Michael helped us get the mirror adjusted to be able to take the course and even spent a couple extra hours with us so that we did not loose any valuable hands on training time due to this mechanical issue.

We found the RV Driving course exceeded what we expected and hoped for.  We plan to be full time RV’ers for the next couple years or longer.  With the size and complexity of driving an RV and tow car, I believe the lessons learned in your school will not only help us live our dream safely but may very well save the lives of countless others.  I highly recommend that everyone who will drive an RV of any size take this course.
