Our Training Locations
You are now able to go straight from a car to a C+E vehicle and fast track to your HGV licence.
Our Car to C+E courses are designed to give you the skills, knowledge, and confidence you need to go from a Category B licence to a C+E artic licence.
This course has been created to ensure that candidates can safely and securely transition from driving a car to an articulated lorry. You can book this course with confidence in knowing that the training we provide surpasses the highest quality available, and all of our LGV Instructors are experienced industry professionals who are dedicated to giving you the skills and knowledge needed to obtain your licence.
Alternatively, some students would rather train to Category C level before proceeding to progress to the Articulated Cat C+E lorries, if you would rather look at our Category C rigid truck options, please see our LGV 2 training courses.

The Fast Track Car to C+E process will include the following steps:
- Complete D2 & D4 forms.

Where can you complete you training?
We offer our HGV fast track training at all of our training depots, covering Hampshire, Berkshire, West Sussex, and the surrounding areas, with depots in Portsmouth, Southampton, Reading, and Worthing.
All of our training depots have on-site reversing facilities, as we have 6 DVSA-approved 3a test areas across the South Coast. We have ensured that our students will receive training that is to the highest standard as well as the most comfortable training experience possible as all of our vehicles are nearly new and come complete with automatic gearboxes and air-conditioning.
Why choose 2 Start?
Our Car to Class 1 training courses does not provide a lesser service because of the condensed course, as our student's safety is of the utmost importance to us, which is why this course has been created to ensure you have the ability and confidence to operate an HGV class 1 vehicle on the road.
Additionally, as mentioned, we have some of the best HGV and driver training facilities on the market, with our fleet and equipment constantly being improved and invested in to ensure we remain ahead of the game.
Our team will help you every step of the way on your fast-track journey, from initial enquiries and booking your medicals for you locally to completing your driver training and gaining your licence.
