My DW talked for over a year about learning to drive our coach, but one way or another we never got around to it. In Jan of 14 we spent a couple of weeks in Livingston shifting domicile, so the time was right. She'd never driven anything bigger than our Navigator, but wasn't intimidated or put off at all. I gave her brief systems explanations and we talked about visual cues. We spent a few hours driving around the park and the town, and we both took our written tests and separate road tests for the TX Class B. No problems.

I once again now do most of the driving, partly because some of her meds often leave her drowsy and partly because I actually enjoy driving, while she is ambivalent. But now we both know she can if she must, and she does it well.

Once the partner learns to drive it that shouldn't be the end of it. I think it's important to drive to keep up the skills - at least once a month or a couple hours during every trip. Skills can be lost along with confidence. It would be difficult to remember everything in an emergency?
