Shoot, I remember some women semi drivers that could literally drive circles around a lot of guys and that was 30 years ago!

My wife refuses to drive. "what would you do if something happened to me?" She says "I will just call one of the grandsons to get it home". One time in Texas on a straight lightly traveled road , she volunteered to drive. About 10 minutes later, a bad, bad storm hit unexpectedly. Omen?

I tried that with my wife, she won't even sit in the drivers seat, let alone drive. But, to be fair he health is so bad the Dr. has prohibited her from driving at all. So, we're all safer if she doesn't drive!
But I really wish she would lean because, as above, it'll be up to her to get it home and I know she'd just sell it as is, where is!

Lots of woman bus drivers here, both transit and school.

My wife can drive the rv, but I am a terrible navigator so we tend to both stick to what we are better at.

My wife refuses to drive the motorhome. Smart lady, she scares me driving her car! I envy those whose wives drive the RV.

before MH we had boats and in all instances my wife learned how to do it all. I mean navigate, dock and handle in every condition a 42 foot twin engine. when it came time for the MH we went down the road to the school parking lot.

I went over all the controls and then let her take her time to go forward and make turns to the left. after a while had her turn around and make turns to the right. later she learned how to back up to park between parking lines and after a bit she was having fun.

Now my DW drives better than me. She did also take a course at the Winnebago National Rally. It helped her understand advanced operation. While there we did the back up contest between and around the cones. she never knock over any cones.

I really love while we are on the road. We do not set any specific area where either of us will be operating but rather we set times. Generally, she will drive about 4 or 5 hours of each day. I pick up a few hours in the morning and generally finish off into the evening. The only thing she has not done is back up with the trailer but we are working on that currently

If your wife doesn't drive even a little she is missing out on a great feeling of accomplishment. My wife love to drive an is proud to point out lady drivers of big rigs when ever one goes by..

Before we even bought the coach the agreement was - we share the driving 50/50. Works out great!

My DW insisted on learning to drive and how do the set up and tear down on all the RV's we've owned from the TT to the MH's. She now lets me drive when I've been good.
