Taylor went above and beyond my expectations of teaching me how to tow my family’s travel trailer. He was the most patient person I have ever met. He took the time to answer every question I had and I had a lot of questions! He was always on time and didn’t rush to finish a session. He even did such an amazing job of teaching my husband how to spot me for backing up into a campsite and our driveway, which I am so thankful for because we all know how stressful reversing can be.He taught me how to handle difficult situations and made sure I even went on multiple different local roads. He had me go on several different highways too. I also appreciated the great advice and suggestions he gave while on the road. Those tips are so important because we were in the real life situations of towing and they will help me learn how to tow and be more comfortable with it.I am so much more comfortable towing our trailer because of how wonderful of an instructor Taylor is. Honestly, I am beyond surprised and thankful how well it went. I can’t thank Taylor enough!Thank you,
I am very glad that I made the investment for RV Driving School. I am now much more confident on driving my RV. Martin Stevens was my instructor. He was patient, friendly, and very professional. He answered all my questions and addressed the issues that were of concern to me. I learned a great deal and Martin provided many tools and tips for driving and backing up an RV.
I would definitely recommend RV Driving School and Martin Stevens as an instructor.
If you’re on the fence as to whether or not you should take an RV driving lesson (I was) I’ll tell you this was well worth the money and time spent. Highly-recommended!
My instructor was Gary Goldsberry out of Colorado. Lessons were on a 41’ Class A diesel pusher (w/a tag axle). Gary is both a motorhome owner and in a previous lifetime possessed a CDL. He is also an ASE Certified Master Technician, all of which combined to enhance my learning experience. He was friendly and patient with a lot of knowledge and experience and took time to listen and provided answers my questions that were clear and easy to understand.
The 1st day was spent discussing CDL-styled pre- and post-driving checks — a must for a big rig — as well as driving and maneuvering in tight places. This was done in a large parking lot so there was no concern with hitting anything, but parameters were set in order to learn how to maneuver in confined spaces. I learned how tight I could turn with the help of the tag axle’s proper usage, which the Freightliner manual doesn’t cover. Yeah, the manual explains the functions, but not how and when to use them; this is where Gary filled in huge gaps in my understanding; priceless! Day 2 was spent going into the Colorado mountain’s tight and winding roads headed uphill and down steep-grade highways on the way back which is where I learned better use of the vehicle’s engine braking system.
Although I only address a few highlights above, both days were filled with great instruction on myriad topics; many of which I immediately put to use on the trip out of town. So, no matter how much you think you know or how comfortable you feel behind the wheel, it was great hearing another point of view on things I understood and instruction on the things I didn’t know.
Did I mention highly-recommended? Take the lessons, you won’t regret your decision! Thanks Gary, much appreciated!
Mike Wertz provided training to me so I could begin sharing the driving on our 45’ class A motorhome. The size was daunting to me and I felt some proper training would help me feel more comfortable. Mike was fantastic to work with in this experience! He created a safe environment for me to learn, provided numerous scenarios to gain experience in all sorts of driving conditions, and boosted my confidence significantly. Day one took me through trip preparation and lots of hands on driving experience on city streets, highways, neighborhoods and back roads. We also found a large parking lot and practiced numerous turn techniques. Day two was more driving experience, but he also showed us how to properly weigh our coach and determine correct tire pressures. I even drove our motorhome in and out of our rather tight storage facility, which is something I didn’t think I would feel comfortable doing prior to training. Mike was very informative, calm and a great cheerleader. For me, this was the best investment in helping me enjoy our motorhome even more. We leave on a long trip in the next couple of days and I’m looking forward to doing half of the driving! I can’t recommend Mike and this course enough.
I can’t say enough about the driving lesson! Mike Wertz was wonderful! He was very patient and gave me so many tools to use.
I was very comfortable with the instructions and the pace of the course. There’s a lot to learn and breaking it into two days was definitely worth it. The hands on practice parking our RV was so helpful. Now I just need to do more practicing!
I would recommend this course to any RV drivers who want to gain confidence in their driving abilities. I’m a 63 year old female and if I can do it, anyone can!
Since my lesson on 3/24/2023, my husband and I have both had a couple chances to back up the rig now. These events are going much smoother now, due to Brian Revard’s lesson, and we thank him for that! Brian taught us a few things that make a big difference. He taught us the spotter’s job is to help the driver get to the right starting point – and where that is for different backing up scenarios. Then the spotter’s job, in my words, is to relax a bit. Warn the driver if they are going to hit something, but the backing job from here is on the driver’s shoulders. That is already a big help to us. Brian also taught us a couple spots on our rig to note. When we can see those in the side mirror, then we are angled correctly. It’s key that these are unique to our rig, not just some general concept. I need more practice, but overall, we’ve found Brian’s lesson well worth the price.Thank you for providing this service!

Tim Kyle is a very courteous, positive and listening instructor.
He took time to listen to what I needed, observed what I was doing, and adjusted his lesson-plan accordingly.
I had two very pleasant half-days with Tim, and, after two lessons, I feel pretty confident I can handle my large long 5th wheel RV, even being an absolute beginner in the RV-ing world.
Per your request – here is my review of the L14054 Driving Class I took at the FMCA Rally in Perry, GA. The bottom line: I am so glad I did.
I was a little apprehensive when I decided I should learn to drive our 36-foot motorhome. It was intimidating to sit behind the wheel and know I would be on small backroads and major interstates and everything in between driving this behemoth. Friends asked why I didn’t have my husband teach me….my response….I wanted our 42+ year marriage to continue.
All that being said, it was the best thing I paid for since buying the motorhome. My husband did sit in on the classroom and drove in the dining area of the coach during my “on the road” training.
George did a very good job or explaining the ins and outs of driving the motorhome from a classroom perspective. His 5 safety principals are still in the back of my mind, as well as maintenance, brakes, tires, weight, using mirrors and cameras correctly, and many other topics to keep us safe on the road. This was a very important part of the “lesson”.
My on the road driving instructor was Chuck Urwiller, I can’t say enough positive things about him. He made me feel relaxed behind the wheel, without relaxing my guard. Before we left for our 85+ mile long driving lesson – we took a walk around the coaching where he showed me everything I should be checking to make sure we are safe on the road. Our drive included 2 lane roads, 4 lane roads and an interstate highway. We encountered a broken down “big rig” blocking most of an exit ramp, he taught stopping away back, to back sure he was broken down and how to maneuver around him. We pulled in and out of diesel lanes at a fuel stop, getting the vehicle weighed, getting on and off exit ramps, driving through the center of town-traffic lights, tight turns and all. All of these enforced George’s 5 safety principals and everything else we learned in class.
I feel much more comfortable behind the wheel and thank Chuck for that. He was professional, patient, knowledgeable, relaxed and had a great sense of humor. The fact that we used our own RV for the lesson personalized the experience and made this a highlight of my Perry, GA FMCA Rally week and why I would highly recommend this course, and Chuck in particular, no matter how long you have owned your RV.
Thanks to everyone who made this a highlight of my whole FMCA Rally Perry, GA experience.

My husband and I hit the jackpot by having Ed Planas as our driving instructor!
We have only had our RV for a few months, and while my husband has driven several times, I had never been behind the wheel and honestly was quite nervous to even try to drive. Ed put me in the driver’s seat first and after a few times around the parking lot, we were off and into traffic. He was patient, gave clear directions and really boosted my confidence from the outset. I couldn’t believe that two hours had passed when it was time to switch drivers! Ed gave excellent suggestions and directions to hone my husband’s skills behind the wheel, all the while keeping us comfortable and confident in our driving. Ed was especially patient teaching me to back into a parking space- not too easy with a 35 foot motorhome- but I did it! We learned many tips about keeping ourselves safe on the road, how to care for our RV, and many other topics as we traveled around Phoenix and Tucson.
There are not enough words to describe the amazing experience we had with Ed as our teacher. He is an outstanding ambassador for the RV Driving School, and earns our highest appreciation for the time he spent with us. We are ready for our cross-country journey as safe RV drivers!
The experience that my wife and I had with Jordy Bender was outstanding. He not only taught us driving technique, but familiarized us with features of our coach that we were not aware of. Jordy also explained the WHY behind his approach. This was so important to us. Really solidified the training.
I would highly recommend your course to anyone who asked.
