Have you realised your dream of owning a motorhome? Are you already enjoying the touring lifestyle but leave all the driving to someone else? We can help get you started with everything you need to know!
Motorhomes generally fall into two categories; those that can be driven on a category B car licence, and those that require a category C1 licence to drive them. You will find many motorhomes can be driven on a car licence because they have a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 3500kg or less. If the motorhome you have set your heart on weighs more than this, then you must have category C1 (GVW 3500kg up to 7500kg).
If you passed your driving test after 1 January 1997 you will not have this category on your licence and you will have undertake a commercial category C1 driving test. If this applies to you, please contact us as we can recommend driver trainers in East Anglia. If you do already hold the appropriate driving licence for your motorhome it can pay dividends to undertake awareness training if you have never driven a larger vehicle. Felicity's Driver Training offers bespoke courses to help you gain confidence when driving a larger vehicle at home and abroad.
