    Very informative, Graham was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. Bit more expensive than we thought but to have an instructor one on one was excellent.

      Thanks Neil for the review. Just to clarify, this course usually has a max of 3 vehicles per instructor. 🙂

    Found the trainer to be thorough, adaptable and a clear communicator. Kept instructions under-complicated. Course booklet and dvd’s is a great resource.
    Having two vans at the course enabled both participants to work and practice simultaneously at different ends. This gave heaps of opportunities to refine skills.
    I had a ball – it was great fun with great people.
    Definitely worth the money. Can’t put a price on safety while gaining towing knowledge and experience. Score 5 in all aspects. Apart from the weather. It was bloody cold! Still we made jokes about the weather – maybe add a criteria to the practical proficiencies – reverse a caravan in gale force wind. OK wind speed might be a slight exaggeration but I’m sure you get the idea!
    Seriously though a great day and I feel more confident on the road after competing the course.

    The towing course was great for both my wife and I. Learned a lot. Was very beneficial for my wife that has had no towing experience at all.
