Driver Training Courses

Our Car & Trailer B+E driver training is perfect for anyone looking to gain experience towing a trailer up to a weight of 3.5-tonnes. With the regulations changed in December 2021 you can now tow a trailer with a standard car licence, however, we still strongly advise taking additional training to ensure you remain safe and are confident in towing a trailer to ensure the safety of both you and your family and other road users alike.
Our Caravan towing course is designed for anyone looking to tow a caravan in the UK. Our training will provide each student with the theory and practical experience required to ensure they drive safely and are confident when towing a caravan. The course will cover hitching, lighting, breaking and many other factors that you should be confident with before hitting the road with your new caravan.
Vehicles between 3.5 - 7.5 tonne require a C1 category driving licence at a minimum. If you are looking to drive a C1 category of vehicle, then our range of 7.5 tonne C1 courses are perfect for you and will get you prepared for your practical test.
Driving a 7.5 Tonne vehicle with a trailer requires the C1+E category on your licence, our experienced instructors provide exceptional training that provides you with the confidence and knowledge for your test. If you have the C1+E through grandfather rights, you will need to take a practical test to remove the restriction.
Our range of Category C Rigid lorry driver training courses provides a perfect step up from the 7.5-tonne or Car (Category B) to work in teh logistics industry and a very popular driver category to obtain. Category C is also a great next step towards training for the full Artic. The Cat C range of courses is designed for all levels including novice drivers just starting out and experienced drivers looking to take a refresher course.
Our fast track packages do exactly that, they take you from your car licence right up to a Category C+E Artic licence in one complete intensive driving course. We currently provide two package options which are our Silver & Gold options.
Are you looking to upgrade and obtain your Category C+E full Artic HGV driving licence? If so our range of upgrade courses is ideal. Our highly experienced instructors will help train you to test standards with both theory and practical experience. All of our instructors have high-pass rates and will work to give you the confidence you need in preparation for your practical tests.
Interested in driving a minibus for commercial purposes, or to transport passengers for work or payment, then you will need to have a D1 category on your driving licence. Our Minibus D1 training provides comprehensive driver training that will provide you with the experience and confidence needed to pass your test.
Are you a school, sports activity group or private hire operator or any business that requires Minibus D1 driver training or Minibus and Trailer D1+E driving licence category to enable you to drive this type of vehicle for hire & reward? Our Minibus driver training packages provide the perfect solution and will give each student the theory and practical experience and knowledge required in preparation for their test.

Enjoyed my 5 day Lgv class 2 driving course at Romsey, my instructor was Tim, he makes you feel relaxed and gives you confidence, with a good sense of humor very professional, I passed my driving test first time because of this, many thanks Tim ?


I have just completed my HGV Class 1 and John Hutchings did my final two days training. He is highly professional and knowledgeable. I am sure it was due to his training that I was successful . I would highly recommend John to anyone wishing to pass their training. I would also like to thank Jane from the Portsmouth branch for her excellent training that saw me through my HGV Class 2 back in September last year.


Taken my B+E training. Great instructor, great training. Really useful having test centre conditions to practice reversing and that part of the test. Passed first time and would highly recommend them to anyone in the future.


A very professional driving school from the moment I contacted them. Jack in the office Is very helpful and knowledgeable and got me in for a free driving assessment with Neil my instructor. Once I completed that I booked my week course the very following week.I had Neil the whole week to myself for three hour lessons.He is very knowledgeable and patient explained everything and broke it down into manageable chunks for me to understand practice and make perfect.Nothing is rushed and there is plenty of time to get to grips with coupling/uncoupling,reversing exercise. When it came to my test he had me in a position where I was capable of doing it and starting to believe in my own capabilities and all I had to do now is demonstrate the skills that Neil had taught me.Neil is a great instructor and can’t recommend enough as are the rest of the crew I met at 2 start training.All I can end in saying it was money well spent.


I had training from 2 Start towards both my Class 2 and Class 1 LGV tests. I didn't therefore have any hesitation when I needed to undertake ALLMI Lorry Loader training too. The whole experience from initial enquiry to training and ultimately theory and practical tests was superlative. I'd highly recommend them for any training you might need in this sector. The office staff and instructors are consumate professionals.
