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.

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.
