Driving an RV is not exactly like driving your everyday vehicle to work, it takes practice and education on the proper methods of maneuvering a large vehicle. No matter the type of RV there are certain things you need to know before you hit the road, like vehicle size, height and weight, proper mirror adjustment, stopping distances, and much more. The RVSEF RV Driving Safety Program is an on line course designed to help RV owners and non owners review basic driving skills to the complexities of negotiating all roads in an extended wheel base vehicle with real tail swing. The course is a time commitment of approximately 6 hours, but many insurance carriers support this safety course by offering discounts to policy holders presenting our certificate of Completion.
The RVSEF RV Driving Safety Program is recognized and supported by the National Safety Council, RVDA and RVIA. The program is available at www.rvsafety.com under the “Education” tab at the top of the page. RVSEF also offers hands on driving classes in your vehicle by appointment and at our RV Technical Education & Safety Conference where we have vehicles available for driving should you not own an RV.
RVSEF reminds RV owners that while it is “recreation”, it should be done safely in ways that minimize potential hazards for RV owners and other motorists. The RV Driving Safety Program is designed to provide helpful driving information and is intended to make the driving experience a safe one.
With proper attention to the differences in vehicle size, height and weight, it will be easy to hit the road and enjoy RVing Safely.
