    Tell her that there is a new EU directive that states that if a person has not driven such a vehicle before, they have to take a Test

    Or you could be a man and just say Noooooo:Wink::Wink::Wink::Wink:

    So if your both away in the van and you have an accident and cant drive the van - is this the time to say? 'ok you need get me to the hospital/doctors', when she would be worried about you and have to face driving something she hasnt driven before.

    Its not a monster of a van you have, I drive one that size everyday and it has a better driving position than a car.

    Yep. Good point. Go on, risk it. It might be worth it.

    You could always enroll her in a local branch of this...

    http://www.roadar.org/

    and locally, maybe covering your area:

    http://www.safedriversandriders.org.uk/

    It's amazing the results they get.

    I think it is a good idea so that in emergencies she knows she can drive it.

    I keep on thinking I must drive ours but being a left hander I had it, I have only driven it for approx a total of 2 hours.

    I am not a good driver I would be the first to admit that.

    I always think yeah I will have another go but I always look for excuses, and have a sleep in the passenger seat instead.:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I always try to look at the positives... :driving2:
    Wake up at your destination fresh and rearing to go. :boxing:
    Never get lost as you will be reading the map.:blonde2:
    Stop in a lay-by leave the key in the ignition and have a good drink.:beerchug:
    Stop in any pub on route.:drink:
    Have a bottle of wine with your picnic.:wine:
    Sit in the sun while she goes to the supermarket. :rain:
    Don’t forget the protocol: the driver puts the awning up, washes the van and checks the oil and always empty the loo:whistle:
    I’m sure there are many more benefits:whistle:

    TRUST ME NO NO NO,,, allow her only to help with the washing and cleaning of the van. Do not let her behind the wheel...

    Nikki is not allowed, when ever she tries she ruins my holidays by scaring me shitless. So dont allow it make life more interrestng for her.. get a book that keeps the children happy when in a car, you know the sort count the blue cars type.

    wedding dresses are white for a reason, the reason is because most kitchen appliences are white. Now I know most motorhomes are white but they definatly are NOT kitchen appliances so it's best to leave it to the man to drive.:Rofl1:

    Or on a serious note, both the CC and C&CC run training courses for motorhomes?


    That said, guess who does all the driving of ours, worries me to death when 'she' gets the keys, well the once she got the keys. She's gotta have a go with Winne some time I know but.........:Eeek:
