Would like to thank both Phil and Katie for the excellent training they have given me over the last two weeks, which has seen me achieve my Class 1 License, and also my CPC. The training is excellent and was catered to my own personal learning style. Many thanks again, and I could not recommend them enough for people who are looking to get into the industry who have never driven a lorry before

I did my Cat C here on behalf of the company I work for on the 22nd July for a week and passed first time. They really are an amazing company, very friendly staff and they teach you the correct way. I had Sean and Jane as my instructors and they were amazing! If you're thinking on getting a bigger licence then I 100% recommend 2 Start. They did me proud and I still am looking at my certificate with such pride!Thank you so much!

I had Jane as my trainer - She was fantastic, relaxed, informative and gave me excellent feedback during my course, would definitely recommend 2start as a training provider. Special shout out to Jack in the office, during the whole booking process he took care of everything for me, and really put me at ease when I was spending a fair old wedge of cash, an investment in my future.Online theory training was very well thought out and easy to use. Would have been more convenient if they had a mobile app, but passed my CPC case studies with 94% so clearly it works!Vehicles were all new, very clean and very well maintained, vehicle checks performed daily ensuring your vehicle is ready to go at the start of your lesson!No wonder 2start is so busy!
