2 Start training Have been very helpful and a good professional company to work with. Thank you.
I have used 2 Start Training on numerous occasions both through an employer and as a customer myself. The level of knowledge and experience the instructors hold and indeed pass on is second to none. I found the whole experience fun and extremely professional therefore if you require training I urge you to look no further than 2 Start Training.
I done my CPC at the Worthing branch yesterday (23rd December 2020) and I am so pleased of the way the teaching was done. At age instructor was extremely helpful and did very well asking all students to know their knowledge on items before he talked about them. He also helped me when I made a simple silly mistake, he told me what I did wrong and showed me what how to do it correctly in my test. Which in total managed to get me to pass my MOD 4 CPC first time! I look forward to seeing you in February for my driving course and test
