2 Start Training Reading

We have been providing industry-leading C1 and other driver training courses from our Reading depot since June 2013, enabling numerous students in the surrounding areas to achieve their goals of gaining their desired licences. The areas we cover from our Reading training centre include Aldermaston, Basingstoke, Newbury and Crawley as well as a number of other locations!

Here at 2 Start Reading, we strive to supply the best experience possible to all of our students from our ADR courses all the way through to our HGV courses, this is why we have massively invested in this depot to ensure its facilities and training equipment is to the highest possible standard.

The C1 Driver Training Process

If you choose to complete your C1 course at our Reading centre, your training will be taught on a 1:1 instructor-trainee ratio, allowing our instructors to give you their full attention and to focus solely on your training. Our C1 courses are completed in one of our new Iveco Daily 5.2-tonne vans and will give you the confidence and skills to safely and securely drive a C1 category vehicle on the road.

Every single one of our instructors is focused and dedicated to ensuring that you can safely operate a C1 category vehicle and that you are confident going into your DVSA driving test.

C1 Driver Training

We cannot reiterate enough that our team will be there for you every step of the way from our support staff booking your medical for you locally and conveniently to our instructors ensuring you are ready to complete your practical driving test.

Our Reading C1 Training Facilities
