Course Reviews

A great school with friendly and experience staff. Good range of vehicles for HGV and FLT training. Nice room for classroom based training.

Southampton

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!

Portsmouth

I have just completed my CPC renewal and must say the course was fantastic! I prefer courses where you are in the classroom as they are easier to interact with coursemates on, however, that said, I could not fault the lesson delivery. I am exceptionally pleased that I chose this company to renew my CPC and I will be back in 5 years for my next renewal, unless I get chance to do further training in the meantime. I can not recommend 2Start training highly enough. Nothing was a problem and all the staff I had the pleasure of dealing with showed the exceptional professionalism of this company. 5 stars is all I can give but would definitely give more if there was the option. Thanks again for this week. Adam Paley
