Safety first with the number one!
Driving safety training with HYMER
HYMER is the first and only leisure vehicle manufacturer to offer a dedicated safety training course for motorhomes and caravans at multiple venues across Germany. And not just for HYMER, ERIBA or HYMERCAR drivers! For the inventor of the motorhome, the safety of all leisure vehicle fans is a top priority.
An analysis performed annually since 1997 by the Federal Highway Research Institute indicates that drivers of leisure vehicles are among the safest road users, with a below-average record of involvement in accidents. A very reassuring statistic! But for HYMER, it’s no reason to be complacent.
HYMER takes the issue of safety very seriously, as part of a joined-up approach. In addition to the comprehensive safety features included as standard in its vehicles, HYMER is also offering a dedicated driving safety course for motorhomes and caravans at several venues around Germany from summer 2016.
The fee-based course, which is subsidised by HYMER, is intended for all drivers of motorhomes, vans and caravan units, regardless of whether their vehicles were purchased from HYMER or not.
Under professional instruction, participants learn what drivers can do for themselves to ensure an appropriate response to every situation and stay safe on the road.
