The Camping and Caravanning Club has announced the 2024 dates for its Club Courses, which are now available to book.
In total there are more than 15 caravan and motorhome manoeuvring courses taking place on dates from February to September 2024 at the Club’s head office in Coventry.
The courses are designed to help both members and non-members brush up on their skills when driving and towing.
Courses are available for different levels of experience, whether motorists have never towed or driven a motorhome before or if they just want to refresh their knowledge and boost their confidence behind the wheel.
Fliss Spink, one of the Lead Instructors, said: “Club Courses help hundreds of people every year to brush up their knowledge and boost their confidence so they can go away with the tools they need.
“The courses are designed with real life situations in mind and there are practical exercises to take part in – there’s a bit of time spent in the classroom, but time is also dedicated to one-on-one learning with our friendly and helpful instructors.”
Further details are available at www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/club-courses. Once someone has completed a Club course they also become eligible for a discount on insurance with Club Care, The Camping and Caravanning Club’s trusted insurance provider.
