Learnt a huge amount this week and looking forward to continuing my training with 2START. Highly recommended.

Brilliant Training school, from the moment I entered the building on Monday till the day I left Friday it felt very welcoming and friendly. what I love about 2 start Romsey is the friendliness and professionalism at the same time. you have a proper good laugh and also learn an awful lot at the same time! (which is a quality most instructors do not possess) I had Tim from Romsey who was super helpful and joyful all the time which made the whole experience very pleasurable. will defiantly come back to do HGV C+E.
