Very blessed to have had a patient and knowledgable down to earth instructor called Simon, I don’t even drive a car so he taught me everything I needed to know, built my confidence up and armed me with all the knowledge and guidance I needed. Challenging week for me as an individual but with Simon’s experience and knowledge, I overcame the challenge. Thank you Simon 👍🏼 I really am grateful.

I had my C1 test with 2 Start through my workplace and my instructor Paul was incredibly helpful! He was very patient with my learning and demonstrated the C1 tests very professionally and clearly. He was amusing through the lessons but serious when needed which made for a very all round experience which made me feel calm and in safe hands. Paul had 0 faults with his teaching and I would recommend 2 Start to anyone!

He was very knowledgable and any questions I had were answered in detail. What a nice, caring, patient man. Couldn’t have done it with him. Top bloke :)

The instructor made me feel at ease from the start of the course, he was easy to get along with and was very knowledgeable. At the start of the course I found all the information that I needed to learn very over whelming but as time went on it all started to fall into place. I really enjoyed the course and would happily recommend it to anyone else looking to train. The only negative I have is that the classroom was a little small for the amount of people in it, otherwise all was great 👍

I had an absolutely amazing experience with the Southampton depot last week achieving my B - C+E licence. Week 1 spent with Janet who has a wealth of knowledge and although I was in the rigid she was giving me advice for the artic the week after. The 2nd week was spent with Dave and again someone with a wealth of knowledge. After having a wobble day one reversing he found a tactic that suited me better and I cracked it first time every time the day after. Dave also instilled the belief into me that I could pass my test quite easily if I just remember everything he told me. 2 absolutely brilliant instructors. I would also like to thank Dell for keeping me calm for my Mod 4 and also Trev for doing the same with my reversing exercise. They also gave me a lot of advice in the reception area whilst I was waiting which is invaluable. I cant forget to mention Marcus and John for their little bits of advice too. I will see you all again hopefully when I need CPC training. Many thanks again to you all.

Really professional and efficient outfit, staff were very helpful, despite being a compressed course due to DVSA shortages 2 Start Ltd ensured I was test ready for my C+E and I passed first time. Vehicles are high spec and well looked after and I felt the staff were all also very happy working for 2 start. I will endeavour to return in future for CPC training and ADR. Not local to me but I will make the journey as it would be worth the trip. Credit where credit is due 5* from me for 2 Start Ltd. Keep up the good work : )

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!

Special shout out to Jack in the office, during the whole booking process he took care of everything for me, and really put me at ease when I was spending a fair old wedge of cash, an investment in my future.Online theory training was very well thought out and easy to use. Would have been more convenient if they had a mobile app, but passed my CPC case studies with 94% so clearly it works!Vehicles were all new, very clean and very well maintained, vehicle checks performed daily ensuring your vehicle is ready to go at the start of your lesson!No wonder 2start is so busy!

I had a really good time with Roy C from 2Start learning how to drive a rough terrain forklift. I thought I had quite a lot of driving experience but learning to drive the rough terrain forklift was one of the most challenging thing I have done for a while. Ray C is a great teacher and simplified the complex process of lifting and moving objects with the forklift by breaking down the various tasks contained in the test into manageable sections so that it was easier to learn. I highly recommend 2start Training and Roy C as a great instructor.

Booked a 20 hour car to C+E course at 2 Start in Theale. Thanks to the expert tuition from instructor Matt and trainee instructor Stuart throughout the week, i successfully completed the course and obtained my C+E licence. Very professional company throughout the whole process, from booking online to the training received. Very highly recommended.

His guidance and support were pivotal in my journey to success. Thanks to his expert training and the comprehensive curriculum provided by 2 Start LGV Driving Course Ltd., I felt thoroughly prepared and confident during the exam.I wholeheartedly recommend Marcus and 2 Start LGV Driving Course Ltd. to anyone seeking LGV training. Their professionalism and commitment to their students are unparalleled.

I did a C+E training course with another training company and managed to get only my 3A, I received a phone call from 2start and I explained them my situation and how I only needed my 3B to become fully qualified, I was booked in to the Otterbourne depot 4 days later and I am very happy that I passed first time!Big shout out to Dave who I had on my first full day, he was really clear on what I needed to improve on whilst keeping it simple to understand. Then on the day of my test I had Marcus who was really chilled and kept my nerves down which allowed me to focus on what I needed to do. Thanks a lot guys, I now have my Lorry license 👍👍👍

Fantastic experience from start to finish - well looked after and a good laugh throughout.Shout out to the legend instructor John who is a huge asset to the firm, knew exactly how to tailor his teaching style to learner's ability and boost confidence. I get massively anxious when it comes to tests and overcomplicate things, but he didn't even break a sweat getting me over the finish line!!! 10/10 best instructor in townWILL be back for my Class 1!!!!

Completed my counterbalance refresher course with instructor Gary, I've been doing this course for many years but my first time with 2 Start, Gary was professional, patient and most of all made me feel at ease when I hit a learning block (some parts of the course i struggle with due to my learning issues) but with patience and encouragement Gary me got there and explained everything logically and encouraged free though.My colleague completed his course at the Portsmouth branch and we would both highly recommend either site. Thanks & see you in 3 years!

A very good course which took me from a car driver to C+E in two weeks. The first week the instructor was Trevor who introduced me to the truck, driving, reversing and coupling and uncoupling. The second week the instructor was Dave who really got into the driving detail with concise instructions on the road whilst giving tuition. Two excellent insrtuctors thsnk you to both and 2 Start

I've Just finished my Cat C training,it was a great experience and I passed first time! I had a fantastic instructor, the youthful but knowledgeable and informative Marcus who took me under his wing and made a potentially stressful week a lot more fun. He's easygoing but not afraid to put his foot down (no pun intended!)if necessary. CPC training was conducted by Dave,another great bloke.The whole team are very friendly and put people at ease from their first step through the door.

I dont even know where to start. I was lucky enough to get 2 of the best dudes you can ever wish for in this industry! John and Marcus are absolute legends, the way they teach and pass on their experienceand knoladge to you is second to none.Both of them are professional, friendly, chatty and yet they still manage to keep you focused and relaxed throughout your lesson. They make you feel comfortable behind the wheel so you can concentrate more on driving. Listening to their tricks and tips, trusting their words helped me pass my "C" for first go. I cannot be thankful enough guys.I'd mention the other instructors I've met aswell as they were nice too. When you step in the office it feels more like a family run place. Everyones happy and helpful and so welcoming. I cannot recomment 2 Start enough. For sure I will be back shortly for my C+E.In the meantime thanks again guys!G

Being as I am, and Unless you have an instructor that teaches and backs up with the theory behind it, I would definitely not make it. I recommend 2 Start Lda and recommend Charlie the instructor that I praise.Thank you

I can’t recommend 2Start highly enough, I did class 2 training and test with them and then Class 1 training and test. Janette was very patient and professional during my class 2 and likewise Adam was to during my class 1. Both instructors put me at ease which made for a great week of training. Due to my own stupidity I failed my first test on both classes but I went back for second tests and Martin took me to them, again very calming and professional. Great company, nice vehicles to learn in.

The staff are friendly and easy to get along with, which helped ease me into learning at my own pace. All the instructors were experience drivers with many years in professional industries. I have managed to complete my Cat C and Mod 4 with the company, with ease. The website is easy to navigate with multiple ways to communicate with the adviser team based in Portsmouth. Also having prices available to view beforehand makes it easy to see how much money will likely be required, and when talking to Jack (adviser) it was all streamlined, quick and with no forceful selling like I had experience with other companies.One thing to note is they do not guide you through the theory process as this will be something you will need to prep for and complete prior to practicals, however there are a lot of material available online and in the DVSA books (recommend "The official DVSA guide to: Driving goods vehicle" a lot of useful information).

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.

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.

We did IPAF training here yesterday! Was much better than other places we have been too previously.Rob the instructor was brilliant and a absolute laugh, typical ex army humour. Had us laughing all day and made the course brilliant.

I was trained by 2 wonderful trainers at 2 Start. They were so supportive, and both gave me their form of training, which made it better for me to get through my test. I had 4 days of training and enjoyed every single minute of it. The vehicles are really nice to drive, clean, in good condition.I was treated with respect and kindness by everyone there and I found it a pleasure to go every day.The only thing I found wrong with the whole 4 days, is the toilets were awful they needed cleaning and there was no toliet paper or hand soap.But apart from that I would 1000% recommend this driver training company to anyone.I would also like to thank both gentleman who got me to and through my training.

A Journey of Success and Confidence: My Incredible LGV Training with 2 Start LtdEmbarking on my LGV training with 2 Start Ltd was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I cannot express my gratitude enough to this incredible company. From the moment I walked through their doors, I knew I was in good hands. With their exceptional training program and the unwavering support of their outstanding tutors, Robert Warner and Gregg Strutt, my dreams of becoming a professional LGV driver have become a reality.During my initial assignment and the bulk of my lessons, Robert Warner played a pivotal role in shaping my foundation as an LGV driver. His passion for teaching and his deep understanding of the industry were truly inspiring. Robert's patience and unwavering support, coupled with his ability to explain complex concepts in a relatable manner, made every lesson a valuable learning experience. He instilled in me a sense of confidence that I could tackle any challenge that lay ahead.Gregg Strutt, who later guided me through the C+E part of my training, further exemplified the exceptional standards set by 2 Start Ltd. Gregg's extensive knowledge and his ability to provide clear instructions allowed me to grasp the intricacies of handling larger, articulated vehicles. His dedication and genuine interest in my progress were evident from day one, and he consistently went above and beyond to ensure I was fully prepared for my C+E examination.Thanks to the unwavering support and guidance of both Robert and Gregg, I was able to approach my LGV exams with confidence. Their belief in my abilities and their encouragement throughout the process were invaluable. I am ecstatic to say that I passed my exams on the first attempt, and it is all thanks to the exceptional training I received from these remarkable tutors.Since completing my training with 2 Start Ltd, doors of opportunity have opened wide for me. I secured my first Class 2 job with DHL, a renowned logistics company, and my career has now advanced to the point where I am a Class 1 driver for Evri. It is truly a dream job, and I owe it all to the exceptional training I received from 2 Start Ltd.Beyond the outstanding technical knowledge and skills imparted, what sets 2 Start Ltd apart is the genuine care and commitment they have for their students. The entire team at 2 Start Ltd goes above and beyond to ensure their trainees are fully prepared, both practically and emotionally, for the challenges of the road.In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend 2 Start Ltd to anyone seeking LGV training. Their commitment to excellence, combined with the exceptional tutelage of Robert Warner and Gregg Strutt, has transformed my life. Their training not only provided me with the necessary skills but also gave me the confidence and self-belief to pursue my dreams. Thank you, 2 Start Ltd, for making my dream of becoming an LGV driver a reality.

Great week training with 2 Start Ltd (Worthing). Would definitely recommend!! Jon my instructor was a great guy patient, professional, and with a sense of humour to help ease the stress of learning to drive a (Class 1) HGV. With his knowledge and expertise I was able to pass my 3A (Coupling and Uncoupling) test. Unfortunately, I was not able to attempt my 3B (driving test) due to it being cancelled because of the DVSA strikes. But over all, great company to train with.

Just passed my C+E first time with no minors thanks to Pauls extraordinarily proficient tuition.Everyone I dealt with, from initial enquiry up to my test day, were professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Well kept modern vehicles too.My only regret is I didn't do this years ago. If you are thinking about upgrading your licence, just go for it. You won't go wrong with 2Start Ltd

I’ve just passed my test and I have to say that 2 Start were fantastic throughout the whole process. The whole team are incredibly friendly and professional however I need to give a special thanks to my instructors Rob and Paul. They have provided excellent training and helped me feel confident with my driving ability. I’m eager now to get back on the road again. If you decide to train with 2 Start I’m sure you will enjoy the experience and come out being a competent driver. Good luck!

A first class company which I can't recommend highly enough. High quality equipment which is always clean and maintained to a high standard. Paul is an excellent instructor who inspires confidence and trust. He has a good instinct for identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and giving appropriate instruction where needed and encouragement. My thanks also to 'not so tall Rob' for his excellent training skills and the pep talk before I took the test. First time pass! Couldn't be happier!! Thanks guys and a Merry Christmas 🙂👍
