Excellent experience, felt very at ease and not rushed. Very nice people to spend time with which made learning to drive a mini bus enjoyable. I felt supported and everything was explained well. Passed both parts of my test.

Took the Class 2 HGV training with Kim's Driver training. Good communication was maintained throughout the whole process and we took a complete package that also included the medical and the on-line training for the theory and hazard perception as well as the driver training. We choose Kim's Driver training as they look after you as an individual, and based on your experience recommend the right solution for you rather than just up selling. Trainers provide excellent guidance throughout and are really easy to get on with.

Thank you Kim and the team for taking me to the next level with my driving. Despite driving a 5.4 tonne vehicle already, after the first day of training in the truck I could see the change in my driving and felt so much more confident and able. Your support, experience and training is second to none - I would highly recommend anyone who wants to drive HGV or otherwise to come talk to you before they go anywhere else.

I have just completed my tuition with Kim Driver Training and I’m pleased to say that I passed my class 2. The whole experience was fantastic from start to finish. Initially Kim advised me on the right path to take and then Martin taught me everything I needed to know in a caring and considerate manner. He made the teaching both informative and enjoyable and I can’t thank him enough for his guidance. I will be booking my CPC course with Kim Driver Training soon. Thanks so much to the team!

Great company.I cannot speak too highly of Kim and the support I received from all the people working there.Always available to give guidance and support. I passed my class 2 test first time thanks to my instructor,Martin.He was very knowledgeable and also gave me the confidence to drive safely. Great company and great people,I am glad I choose them and would recommend them to anyone thinking of pursuing a career in driving. So I have come back to update my review.Yesterday I had my class 1 test and passed first time. All this was due to Kim driving and my instructor Mark.Absolutely brilliant. I reinforce my belief that they are one of the best companies to do you training with.Thank Kim and all the people who work for you,I couldn't have passed without you.
