I instruct for RV Driving School. I know George did not intentionally make this err and If you come to Columbus, Ohio I will teach you 4 hours gratis. BTW I have not discussed this with the owner George but do know him to be an honorable man.

UPDATE:

RV Driving School has gotten back to me and all is good. As someone who has run a large organization, I really appreciate how every once in a while something drops thru the cracks (in my organization it happened a few more times than I care to admit). IMHO, what matters is how the organization responds once the issue is raised. Today RV Driving School has reached out to us, recovered well and quickly addressed our concerns listed below. Showing they are a class organization. We are really looking forward to our Driving Lesson.



Hi All,

Has RV Driving School gone out of business?

We reserved our January RV Driving Class in November. After several emails to schedule time and meeting place, around Christmas we got an email from our instructor saying he would not do the course. No explanation. Just a curt email saying he would not do our course. Would have thought he would have directed us to contact someone at RV Driving School to schedule with someone else or said they would be in contact with us to reschedule.

Other than a small bit of frustration, we are out our deposit of $100. They were quick to take our $100 deposit, but it has been almost a month and no response to our inquiry as to how they would fulfill their training commitment to us.

Hoping others have not had a similar experience.

I am hoping they finally respond so I can post a happy ending to this issue.

Dan

Yeap 110% satisfied with Geogre's and RV Driving School's response. As I said, I totally understand. I ran a large 300 plus person organization and things fall thru the cracks with the best of organizations. IMHO, the measure of an organization is how they respond to those uncommon events and RV Driving School has excelled.

These are honorable people. Several years ago I instructed for the RV Driving School. George and Valerie are indeed honest people. The instruction is top notch and they treat every student very well with the personal touch. I am certain this was just an anomaly.

I am glad things worked out positively for both sides. I didn't know there were RV driving schools. That is great because I don't think everyone can transition from car to RV's without some help. I wish they had a RV systems school I am still learning all the systems lol.

There is an RV systems school, I think here in Texas. You might try Googling "RV systems school"

Great idea! A vendor stepped up and did the right thing. Now use this positive experience for others, too.

Excellent turn of events when people help each other [emoticon]

there should be some sort of training when it comes to driving these rigs. i think i was kinda lucky that i was trained as a school bus driver with air brakes when i was 21, so kinda got use to the size, and having to watch out for the tail swing on the longer vehicle, braking distance, height, width, etc they do not handle anything like a Honda civic.
most people thought just dont do out and buy a motor coach for there first camping trip though, they start off small and learn from that then work up.
