Keys 2 Drive

Written by Ben Ward

At Rightway we have supported the Keys2Drive program since it was introduced several years ago. Recently a number of our instructors have opted out of the program due to onerous requirements that make compliance financially unviable. They have instead opted to focus on delivering standard, professional training at the highest standard.

The removal of some of our K2D capacity is not a reflection on the instructors involved, it is purely a business decision for those concerned.
