Fantastic. All the staff brilliant. Special thanks to Chris as my instructor. Receptionist to plays her part Kept me laughing whilst I was waiting for lessons. Genuinely recommend it to anyone that asks me
Could not have asked any more from the team at Peter Smythe.. Nick for been patient with me and Chris through the final hour, Tim (Peter kay aka) for the brilliant theory training and keeping us entertained, and Tracey and the guys at Base for organising everything. You got me to my goal and a change in career l thought I would never achieve. Thank you all keep up the good work.
Couldn’t be any more grateful from the whole team at Peter Smythe any questions I asked they answer me with very detail I needed and also a big thank you to Tim for putting up with my bad habits but I got that pass certificate for my Cat C, I will be back for my C+E really recommend this company.
I have been for an assessment drive with Peter Smythe Transport Training and it was a great experience from beginning to end and a one I’ll remember for all the right reasons.
The difference between the first company I went to and Peters company is like night and day, its very easy to see Peter knows just what he’s talking about and he gives very good instructions and he is extremely passionate about his company and rightfully so, I would be too if I had built up a training company like his.
This is the second company I have used for my Cat C training. Staff are absolutely fantastic very friendly, professional and organised. I’d like to say a big thank you to Chris who was fantastic and supported me over the 2 days that I was there. You would struggle to find a better company than Peter Smythe. Highly recommend! Also to all the staff in the offices. Many thanks and hopefully I’ll see you in the near future for my class 1!!
Passed my class 2 with these absolutely an amazing company from start to finish absolute great team would defiantly recommend these are not in it for the money like the rest I only had 7 hours lessons as they recommended me instead of 14 hours 100% trust these guys amazing and thank you very much for your help and support through out my experience.
An Excellent Training School who provide a professional, helpful and friendly service.
Their dedication in providing the very best training in preparation of the test speaks for it self and can be seen in their ever increasing Pass Rate which I have become a part of.
A big thank you to everyone at the Driver training.
(Message to Paul, Your method of training and confidence in me to Pass has paid off. Many thanks)
Had a fantastic experience with Peter Smythe. Passed my class 2. CPC and Class 1. I found the organisation to be professional supportive and very friendly. My instructor Tim was brilliant and made my training feel comfortable fun and easy. A great big thank you to all who work there.
Couldn’t be any more grateful from the whole team at Peter Smythe any questions I asked they answer me with very detail I needed and also a big thank you to Tim for putting up with my bad habits but I got that pass certificate for my cat c, I will be back for my c+e really recommend this company
