Module 4 – Driver CPC practical demonstration test (this takes 30 minutes – you will need to show you can keep your vehicle safe and secure, eg loading your vehicle safely)
The initial CPC is a practical, ‘show me’, ‘tell me’ test conducted at a DSA driving test centre by an examiner, the test is 20-30 minutes long and covers questions in the following areas; Daily walk-around checks, the ability to prevent physical risk, loading and the security of loads, keeping the vehicle secure, emergency procedures, loaded vehicle dynamics, border crossings, and security procedures. This encompasses a wide range of situations typically encountered by drivers and is covered in full by our instructors. CPC for both Passenger Vehicles and Goods Vehicles can be covered by 2 Start. ?

My instructor was the lovely Don, he was great, really put me at ease and calmed my nerves! He helped me pass my b&e first time, all his training with first class , so thank you so much Don and 2start, so grateful! Highly recommend xx
I did the class 2 and CPC with 2 start in Worthing with many thanks to Mark it was a breeze, couldn't have have had a better experience anywhere else, cheers 2 Start Training! If any of you potential learners are looking to get training PLEASE go direct with 2 Tart Training and NOT through an agent as they don't help you get work as promised and charge way more than these guys will. good luck to you all.
Fantastic staff and instructors. Just completed my forklift counterbalance and reach course. A really enjoyable course. Would highly recommend 2 start to anyone interested in gaining their driver quals . Thanks guys
