Our Reading Driver Training depot opened back in 2013 and is an established driver training school in the area.  Reading is our second busiest depot and spends a large part of the week either driver training or forklift training.  We also have classrooms so we can hold driver CPC and ADR training also.  We also have a private reversing area, meaning you can practice reversing manoeuvres without distraction.  Our warehouse is complete with racking so that students can practice stacking and de-stacking safely under the supervision of our highly trained forklift instructors.

Courses at Reading

We have a wide variety of courses at our Reading depot from HGV driver training, IPAF training, forklift training and periodic driver CPC courses.  Take a look at all the courses we have below, you can purchase these courses online.

Every guy working there were beyond nice and welcoming. Mark who done my training for the cpc mod 4 & Clint S who done the best. I had my Clint K as my instructor for the week and he settled my nerves and don’t have nothing but good things to say about him. Thank you for giving me the training and getting me that pass. Honestly I recommend going to these guys for your training 10/10

5* D1 Minibus Training2* Customer CareJust passed my D1 test after 3 days of training with Clint at the Theale Depot. His tuition, knowledge and manner were faultless! I can't recommend him enough!Unfortunately the experience prior to the course was very negative. Of the four day course I was only notified of my start time on the first day, 7am. After that first day I was then notified of subsequent times that I would be required and for how long, this varied from full days (7am-5pm) to a 3/4 hour blocks e.g.12-4pm. I did notify the company 3 times prior to the course starting that I have 2 children and I was expected to find childcare and someone to take them to and from school less than 24hours notice. Unfortunately they were not helpful or flexible in the slightest.

Roy and the rest of the staff at 2 Start are so kind and full of knowledge. Roy delivered my NRL. His way of teaching me was very good he spent a lot of time to help and assist to get to the required stranded required. (This review is being written as I wait for my results.). Would strongly recommend 2 Start to anyone that is looking to attend there NRL course.

Completed my NRI course at 2start with Roy. Roy is a fantastic instructor with a great sense of humour and made what was a difficult assessment so much easier. I’d recommend 2start to anyone considering doing the NRI qualification.

I have recently completed my NRI instructor course with Roy at 2 start in Aldermaston and I can't recommend them enough. Roy made the week enjoyable, fun and educational with a long course made easy to take in.

Great experience, good solid training from Matt and Alex. I can’t recommend highly enough, they got me through some up’s and down’s during the training, would never have succeeded without their professionalism. Thank you both.

I have recently progressed through my C+E training with the Theale depot of 2 start ltd. The comprehensive training and patient but thorough guidance throughout resulted in me passing both parts of the test within the week. Training was of a very high standard and facilities onsite were great. Every aspect of the course from start to finish was smooth. Highly recommend for vehicle training.

I have just completed a morning C+E refresher training with 2 Start and I must say I was very impressed. I explained I am returning to driving after a 9 year break and was immediately asked which areas I wanted to cover, therefore tailoring the lesson to my specific needs.The instructor (Roy), was knowledgable and gave good feedback throughout, explaining the reasons for his comments.The vehicle (a nearly new DAF) was clean and very smart.At the end of the lesson we had a debrief and I was invited to contact them again in the future - even if it was just for advice over the phone.It is so refreshing to deal with a professional, friendly and helpful business.If you’re looking for LGV/PCV or CPC training I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending 2 Start.
