Caravan Course

Towing your Caravan with Confidence

Whether you are going away for the weekend or touring the country, knowing your towing law and feeling confident in manoeuvring your caravan will enable you to arrive safely and enjoyably.

We all know towing caravans can be a stressful experience. It is not just the manoeuvring and reversing of the caravan itself, but the experience of driving on motorways and highways that can leave you exhausted and on edge at the end of your journey. We don’t believe it has to be like this. Our job is to ensure you drive with confidence and competence and arrive at your destination relaxed and ready to enjoy your time away.

Designed For

All caravan owners - whether you are new to caravanning and need to learn the practical and legal aspects of towing or whether you are already experienced in towing caravans, but want to refresh your skills or target certain areas such as reversing (into those hook up areas!) with confidence.

The course includes both off-road and road-work training and is generally delivered on a one to one basis. There is a discount for a two person training session.

Our courses are designed to suit you and while we provide a structured course for you to follow, if you need to focus on a particular area, we are happy to factor these requirements into the training.

Summary

This is a hands-on, practical driving course which you can take using your own caravan and car. And if you don’t have a caravan yet or want some experience of towing before taking the plunge, Towing Solutions has a caravan you can use and a vehicle available for hire if required.

So if you want to negotiate roads and junctions without stress, reverse with confidence and be clear about relevant towing law, this is the course for you.

Testimonials

"After taking the plunge and buying our first caravan we wanted to ensure that we would feel safe and confident getting it from A to B. We had never towed before so it was a very daunting prospect and we were both keen to have some tuition."
"After fifty odd years of driving I have been persuaded to buy a caravan, and never having towed anything before, decided to book a lesson in towing......."
"I just wanted to say a big thanks to Nigel for his excellent and informative caravan towing course. Having recently bought a folding camper I was a complete towing novice but Nigel showed great patience with me."
