Here are just some of the many pupils that have passed their test with ELITE and taken the time to show their gratitude to our instructors by posting a review!  All reviews are genuine, and are posted and verified via Freeindex.

"Highly recommend Andy as a driving instructor! I attempted to learn to drive 7 or 8 years ago, but I was very anxious to get behind the wheel and I quickly gave up. I decided to go for learning in an automatic and after my first lesson with Andy, I felt so much more confident. I have MS and as a result, find it tricky to take in or remember information accurately. Andy used different methods of explaining information and showed me various techniques to perform manoeuvres, which has proved invaluable to me. He encouraged me to realise that I was test ready and I managed to pass with 2 minors! Beyond thrilled and cannot thank him enough for having the patience to put up with me!"

"Recently passed first time after great tuition from Karen. She was patient and professional, and I felt she quickly gauged my level of progress, taking things at the right pace through my lessons, putting me at ease and giving me the confidence to pass and get out on the road on my own. The service was also very flexible, allowing me to fit the lessons in around work and a young family as I needed to. I have already recommended Elite and Karen in particular twice since passing, once to family and once to a friend, and would not hesitate to do so again."

"I passed my driving test yesterday thanks to my driving instructor Kevin. I had been recommended Kevin by my brother as he had previously passed with his help. Kevin is very calm and patient and has truly helped me with my driving. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a good instructor."

Lessons were always so fun from the first time, he made me feel so comfortable with his calming demeanor and easy going attitude. He is the reason I passed my test!

Rochelle Narley, Croydon, Surrey

Peter"I had lessons with Sue and have just passed my test first time. I thought that the teaching was great: I never felt out of my comfort zone but I was encouraged to progress and it was always made clear at each stage what I should be doing to be driving correctly. Sue clearly knows her stuff and often would talk about situations that were relevant not only to just pass the test but in order to drive safely in general. I would definitely recommend both elite and Sue wholeheartedly. "

Peter Lawton, South Croydon, Surrey

"I passed my driving test few years ago and I did not have the confidence to get back on the road. Thanks to Mo, I am now able to drive with no hesitation. I would definitely recommend Mo to anyone who wants to drive correctly. He is professional, punctual and able to teach you technical driving skills in a simplified way. Great teacher"

Sharon"I am so glad to have found Richard who was originally recommended to me by someone in my neighbourhood. I passed first time at Chertsey with just 1 minor fault and this is due to having him as a great driving instructor. I only had 20 hours with Richard as I was also learning in my partners car but I would have never achieved what I did without the help from Richard. He boosted my confidence, awareness and helped me master all the manoeuvres and not only that but every lesson was enjoyable and it went super fast but I was always learning something new! The only negative I can think of is I will miss my lessons with him and his words of wisdom! Thank you for everything :)."

Sharon Walburn, Weybridge, Surrey

06 March 2017

Rachel"I recently passed my test (first time) after having lessons with Matt Timor. Matt has been an excellent instructor, building my confidence as a safe driver, rather than just focusing on the practical test. Matt is patient and calm, adapting his style to his pupils. Matt covers all aspects of driving during the lessons and has made the whole experience something that I'm really proud to have achieved."

Rachel Gore, Wallington, Surrey

Tash"I was recommended Sue by a couple of my friends and couldn't be more pleased with my experience. She has been absolutely incredible, so supportive and reassuring! Passed first time with only three minors, so thankful for all her help, Definitely worth the money!"

Natasha Henderson, South Croydon, Surrey

04 March 2017



Louise"Kim Hart has been fantastic, I would highly recommend her and Elite driving school - especially for "mum's to be"! Kim's patience with me (a very nervous driver at the start) and extensive knowledge of the roads and test conditions really made the difference. Today I was able to put her words into practice and passed my test for the first time since I started to learn how to drive over 15 years ago! I also think Elite offers great value for money, not only in terms of lesson quality, but also the resources available on the website that made it easy for me to learn the basics and pass my theory test quickly and easily."

Louise Elizabeth Barrett, Weybridge, Surrey

08 March 2017

"I had an intensive 2 day course with Kim Hart before I moved and she was amazing, she gave me the confidence I desperately needed and talked everything through, nothing was ever too much hassle. Thanks to Kim I only needed a few extra hours and I've just passed my test first time with 1 minor. I genuinely couldn't have done it with her help. 100% recommend her to anyone."

Kelly Mitchell, Melksham, Surrey

01 March 2017

Honey"I received amazing teaching from this school. My instructor Kim Hart was so so helpful and taught me everything thoroughly so I felt confident going into my test.

Libby Gosnold, Horley, Surrey

19 February 2017

Dan"I passed at the first attempt with no minors, all thanks to Sue, whose instruction was equally faultless. She is organised, patient and thorough, besides caring and friendly. Learning to drive with her has been an enjoyable and rewarding experience, one I highly recommend."

Daniel Butler, Croydon, Surrey

19 February 2017



Michael"My time working with Moh has been very pleasant. He is very patient instructor, using different methods to get the message, I went from an eager driver to patient experienced driver. When working with Moh I felt he did target my weaknesses directly, for instance when I failed on a task, we would work on the problem and by the next time my test results would show the improvement. I felt as Moh is a down to earth person who is easy to work with and as he is my first and only instructor, he is the reason I passed the test and I would recommend him to anyone."

Michael Bankole, Croydon, Surrey

13 February 2017

"Thank you Chris Lisney! You are a fantastic driving instructor! I passed my test today and I could not have done it without your support and encouragement.

Jesus Boyele, Thornton Heath, Surrey

15 February 2017

Kieran"Danielle helped me with passing my driving test. She is amazing and I don't think anyone could had done it better than her! Every time I got in the car with her I felt relaxed and it was very easy for me to learn and understand how to drive through Danielle. Would 100% recommend!"

Kieran James, Redhill, Surrey

15 February 2017

Larisa Damien, Reigate, Surrey

Maria, London

01 February 2017

"Have to say a huge thank you to Moh for my refresher lessons. I had massively lost my confidence with driving and he was so calm and encouraging and a real credit to the company. Within 3 lessons, I was back on the main roads in Croydon and drove on the M25 for the first time! Highly recommend to anyone in the Croydon area, both learners and license-holders in need of extra guidance."

Molly Bainne, Croydon, Surrey

Along with my driving skills you helped me to grow my confidence on the road. And I passed today! I will be back for Pass Plus!

28 January 2017

"Elite has helped me a lot with my driving skills, my instructor (Rob Barber) used to help me a lot to improve my driving skills as each lesson goes forward, he had a lot of patience with my mistakes and me and built my confidence in driving. He teaches everything you need to know and gives all the practice you need before the test. I would recommend Elite driving school to my family and friends. A massive thanks to my instructor.

Akshaya Rajagopal, Coydon, Surrey

26 January 2017

"The quality of the driving lessons from Danielle were fantastic. Extremely calm and able to explain things in really easy ways to understand helped me to pass my test in just a few months. I would highly recommend her."

Edward Lee, Reigate, Surrey

26 January 2017

"What can I say, Jenny is an outstanding instructor. Learning to drive is a difficult skill at first, but as soon you get used to it, it all becomes natural thanks to the help of Jenny. Jenny has taught me not only how to pass my test but how to deal with driving in the real world - which is a skill that'll stay with you for the rest of your life. Jenny is concise and very welcoming and her banter helps keep any nerves at ease. Having passed with only 1 minor fault, Jenny cannot be faulted in any way! Thanks so much for everything, I will certainly miss some of our chuckles."

James Flanders, Reigate, Surrey

25 January 2017

Xander"I've been learning to drive with Richard, from Elite Driving. In my opinion there aren't enough stars to rate Richards quality of teaching, persona and comedic satire! One of the most worrying things about learning to drive is finding someone who is funny, not awkward but also a good teachers you're going to have to spend 20-40+ hours with them in a one-on-one situation. As stated above Richard is a quality teacher and always make sure you are comfortable with a certain aspect of your driving before over complicating things. There is never an awkward moment, in fact, I am convinced he has a library at home full of his life stories as he has no many, all of which are extremely funny. Overall, although I have passed my driving test and am delighted that I have, I truly am going to miss my lessons with Richard, cheers for the journey!"

Xander Allman-Vart, Walton-on-thames, Surrey

Jemma"Passed first time today with no minors, Richard was an amazing instructor who explained things very well. Would definitely recommend. Very happy with the quality of service offered by Elite.

Callum"Just passed my driving test first time with Kevin. He has been the most brilliant instructor I could have hoped for. He is a credit to elite, and is very patient, calm, and positive, which helped me from being unable to move a car, to being a safe and confident driver. His very clear style of teaching was also very helpful. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks Kevin!"

Callum Meek, Woking, Surrey

22 January 2017

Rebecca"Just passed my test first time with my instructor Kevin last week! Kevin was always calm and I always felt relaxed while driving. His way of teaching was simple and easy to understand, yet included many helpful tips. This meant that I went from knowing absolutely nothing to being a safe and confident driver. Highly recommend. Thank you Kevin!!"

Rebecca Sullivan, Addlestone, Surrey

17 January 2017

"Thanks to Gary V. I've finally passed after all the patience you had to deal with. All the I can't do it and omgs you never gave up. I would recommend him to everyone who's looking to start lessons 100% Thank you again Gary!"

Oscar"I was dreading starting to learn to drive, and had minimal experience before coming to Elite, but with the support of my instructor, Amanda, I became much more competent and confident. The test-specific tips and reminders were invaluable in ensuring that I passed first time. I will greatly recommend the school to others."

Oscar Brown, Redhill, Surrey

Martina"I passed my driving test first time with Garry Commey at the end of November 2016. I feel so lucky that I had such a good and nice instructor as a first time learner as I've heard some bad stories and experiences from other people before. Garry is a very patient, understanding, knowledgeable and fun instructor and he always tried his best to be flexible around my busy working and family schedule, which was very helpful. In a short period of time he was able to understand my way of thinking and learning and adjusted his teaching methods and lessons to what suited my personality. With Garry's great sense of humor, I quickly began to enjoy our lessons and became more and more relaxed and confident behind the steering wheel. Thanks to Garry, I was introduced to the world of driving with a very positive and responsible attitude and I am very grateful for all his patience, effort and help. Should anyone ask me for a great driving instructor, I will always recommend Garry."

Martina Hirsova, Corydon, Surrey

Francesca"I managed to pass first time with Kim Hart as my instructor! I had an amazing time learning how to drive with her and could not have wished for a better instructor. The way in which she conducted her lessons meant that I felt at ease and well equipped for my test. She was extremely patient and helped me feel at ease on the roads, I would definitely recommend Kim as an insructor."

Francesca Cox, Addlestone, Surrey

23 December 2016

Eleanor"After 3 months of lessons with Ian I was absolutely delighted to pass my test yesterday afternoon. Ian encouraged me to be confident but safe on the road and this is something that will be ingrained in the way I drive for life. Each lesson was personalised for the aspects of driving I wanted to build upon and well structured so I could keep track of what I'd learnt each time- keeping a record card was really useful for this. I thoroughly recommend Ian as an instructor."

Eleanor Perrin, Horley, Surrey

23 December 2016

"I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone wanting to learn how to drive. Amanda is an amazing instructor who gives you all the confidence you need in yourself and always goes above and beyond to fit you in for a lesson. So thank you Amanda for everything!"

Kayleigh Winder, Wallington, Surrey

22 December 2016

"I passed my driving test first time with the help of Danielle from Elite. She has been a great instructor, always very patient, calm and friendly in every lesson. I was nervous about the idea of driving before I decided to take lessons with Elite, but Danielle helped me to feel so much more confident behind the wheel than I ever thought I would be. I never felt pressured or rushed during lessons and I was able to progress at my own pace. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an instructor. Thanks for everything Danielle!"

Leah McKay, Redhill, Surrey

22 December 2016

"Great fun driving with Amanda. The last 2 lesson were all about driving and knowing what to expect on the day Amanda is simply the best!"

Hassan, Reigate, Surrey

22 December 2016

"I had Danielle as a driving instructor and she was amazing, really helpful and I passed my test 1st time after 30 hours of lesson time, the reason I've put the value for money as a 4 is because it's quite expensive but still worth it id say!!"

George Green, Betchworth, Surrey

19 December 2016

"I recently passed my test with Danielle, from Elite. I enjoyed every minute of my driving lessons with Danielle! She was very friendly, chatty and patient. This helped keep my nerves down as Im not a very self-confident person and a slow learner when it comes to my driving, but with Danielle I became more confident and relaxed. I've recommended Danielle to all of my friends and I definitely recommend her to everyone else too! :) x."

09 December 2016

Brioni"I passed my test today with only 1 minor, all thanks to my super star instructor Adrienne!! After trying when I was 17 and being very nervous, I was very put off and decided driving wasn't for me. It took me 8 years to build up the confidence to start again. Adrienne's kindness, patience, flexibility and great work ethic helped build the confidence and now I absolutely love driving. I cannot recommend her enough and will genuinely miss our lessons! Thank you for everything Adrienne !! I am over the moon!"

Brioni Rock, Camberley, Surrey

09 December 2016

Oliver"My instructor was Richard B, He knew exactly what he was teaching me and he gave me lots of tips and tricks to not only pass my test but to be a safe driver for many year to come. It never felt like I was going into a school lesson the lesson were so fun and filled with conversation."

Oliver Treherne, Weybridge, Surrey

09 December 2016

Sophie"I would love to recommend Elite Driving School, especially my instructor Kim Hart. Before my lessons with Kim I had no experience what so ever with driving and she had the patience and time to get up my confidence on the road and enjoy driving. There was never a dull moment with her and you would be lucky to have Kim as your instructor. Thanks for everything Sophie."

Sophie Lloyd, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey

06 December 2016

Molly"I started learning to drive with a previous driving school and I didn't enjoy it. I was ready to stop learning to drive all together. A friend then recommended Sue from Elite. Sue made me want to carry on driving. She made me feel at ease and helped me to make great progress. I have also recommended Sue to a couple of my friends. I passed first time, with two minors and I couldn't be happier. I can't thank Sue enough for all her help and support! I couldn't have passed without her. "

"My instructor Garry C gave good tips that help me master the skills required for driving as well as doing all the manoeuvres. He is knowledgeable and always emphasizes on safe driving. The lessons have been enjoyable and Garry has a good sense of humour which definitely helps when I was feeling nervous or anxious. I passed my driving test with minimal faults. I will definitely recommend Garry C to anyone who is looking to learn driving. On a side note, when I called up Elite, I have stated my preference for an instructor who can do weekends, but been assigned Garry C who doesn't really work weekends. Having said that though, Elite did advise that I am allowed to request for another instructor if I feel the one they assigned is unsuitable. I did not ask for change because I felt Garry C is a good instructor. "

Mary Lim, Croydon, Surrey

26 November 2016

"Just like to recommend Elite driving and especially my instructor Ian. Made me feel relaxed from the beginning, and I have just passed 1st time."

Lauren"After a bad experience with my first instructor I was very nervous about trying with a new instructor, but Sue was excellent at putting me at ease and working at my pace. I had been driving with my parent for a good 12 months in between and Sue was quick to spot my bad habits and rectify them. As I work shifts she was flexible about my lessons to fit in with what I could do and gave me the confidence to pass my test when I was ready. Sue is exceptionally patient and a phenomenal instructor. I couldn't have passed my test (first time, with 1 minor) without her and I would absolutely recommend her to just about any learner out there. Thank you so much Sue!"

Lauren MacCrimmon, Caterham, Surrey

"Garry has been an absolute fantastic instructor from the get go! I would not have been able to pass without him. Garry is very patient, as well as having a great humour, making my driving experience very pleasurable! Garry has always been incredibly reliable, always turning up on time for lessons without fail, helping with my very busy schedule. Who can fault an instructor who has the best tricks when it comes to maneuvers?! Not me - I was always nervous about the maneuver aspect of learning how drive but Garry made me feel very calm and always came with a can do attitude! I would highly recommend Garry C as your driving instructor! Thank you very much Garry - you are a superstar!!"

Sue is very very patient, friendly, understanding, accommodating and what not. I wouldn't recommend anyone to anywhere else. Can't thank you more Sue… Million thanks to Sue and Elite… :)."

Jon'I'm Jon Ball, I live in Reigate and I just passed my test first time. This was thanks to my instructor Amanda Saunders from Elite Driving School. She is calm and puts you at ease in the car. Her tips for the manoeuvres make things that seem difficult really easy to accomplish. I especially enjoyed her use of a toy car in demonstrating road positioning etc. So many thanks to Amanda and ELITE Driving School."

James"I can highly recommend Elite Driving School, especially my instructor Sue, who as far as driving instructors go I'm not sure how you could get a better one than her. With her lessons instructed in a clam and informative manor, learning becomes very natural and in no time at all you can see the progress within your own abilities. At no point did I ever feel uncomfortable, under pressure or as though I was given a situation I couldn't handle, such is her ability as an instructor even the most challenging situations presented in everyday driving conditions become very easy to deal with in no time at all. Plus not only that you'll find yourself having a great laugh and conversation with a very nice, caring and considerate person at the same time. I know when I passed and finished lessons with Sue one of my first thoughts was that of slight sadness, having had such fun on the lessons and getting to know her at the same time. I'll without doubt be in contact in the future with regards to further driver training and recommend her to others in the future. Many thanks Sue, I'm sure there is plenty of safe driving in the future thanks to your instruction. "

James, Caterham, Surrey

18 October 2016

Fan"So pleased to passed my test first time at West Wickham today." "The instructor was changed to Sue just one month before my test and my first lesson with her was horribly bad due to not getting used to the new car. Sue is calm and rectifies my bad driving errors and habits. She emphasizes the important safety issues and helps me all the way through my last month learning. She's so patient and knowledgeable and I will definitely recommend Sue for any learners new or half-way!"

J Fan, Croydon, Surrey

She made me feel comfortable and at ease from the first lesson even though I was a bundle of nerves to begin with, and she has always remained patient - even when arranging lessons was a hassle as I was moving back and forth from uni. Thank you for all of your support Kim, I couldn't have passed today without you!"

26 September 2016

Aaron"Both myself and my sister passed our test's with Sue as our instructor. I do not believe there is a word in existence that can fully describe the full extent of just how exceptional an instructor Sue is. She has nothing but patience in any given scenario, regardless of where you go wrong or how badly and more importantly has an effective solution for everything; a solution both easy to understand and carry out. She is remarkably punctual no matter what time you have your lesson and is never without a smile or conversation to reassure you through the entire experience. I have no experience with any other instructors at this exceptional company, and I am sure they are all great in their own right; however, I would have to say I genuinely do not believe there are any better instructors than Sue at this or any given company. All round PERFECT. Thank you."

Aaron Amankwa-Walters, Caterham, Surrey

Melanie James, Camberley, Surrey

25 September 2016

Will"Adrienne is a brilliant driving instructor, and her teaching led me to pass first time! The lessons are suitable lengths and the flexibility is great when it comes to scheduling lessons around college and work. The whole teaching experience was definitely exceptional and I never felt worried to ask questions and ask for additional help; I felt comfortable driving both in and out of lessons. I can fully recommend Elite Driving School, as the teaching is great and the quality and service is perfect. "

I felt very comfortable with Kevin and was eased into being a confident driver! Easy to talk to and a great agony aunt. Its been a pleasure driving with him. Easy to arrange appointments with and I was very fortunate to have someone so understanding when I had medical issues and unable to continue for periods of time. Outstanding instructor and is an asset to Elite driving school. Jade."

Jade Senior, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey

07 September 2016

Laura"I have passed my driving test on 5/9. First time taking, I was quite anxious, but managed to get it done. Sue was my instructor and she was great for me. She is extremely organised, clear in the way she explains and gives instructions. Sue is quick in spotting bad habits (new or old) and finds a way to coach you to forget about them. She will get you ready for your test, with mock tests and preparing you mentally for the test day. I would definitely call her back if needed and recommend her to friends."

Laura A, South Croydon, Surrey

18 September 2016

"I am so pleased to say that I passed my driving test in the first attempt with just one minor! None of my friends believe that you can actually pass it in the first attempt. Thanks to my driving instructor Andy Kirby. I had another instructor prior to Andy Kirby and I had almost decided to give up driving. I didn't feel confident and even after many lessons I felt I was getting no where. But with Andy, I was getting a lot of help from day one. He is extremely good at identifying your weakness and tailoring his teaching methods to suit you. At one point, I was struggling with my reversing round the corner manoeuvre so much that it took me more than 10 attempts and I was frustrated to say the least, he was patient and made me see where I was going wrong and helped me with other techniques to get it right. Andy has a great sense of humour and makes every lesson enjoyable. I can't thank Andy enough and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an automatic driving instructor. Thanks Andy. I look forward to our pass plus lessons."

Sowmya, Horley, Surrey

Daniel G, Coulsdon, Surrey

29 July 2016

"I have had a few driving instructors in the past with various driving schools but I must say that by far Chris Lisney has been the best. He is patient and knows how to design lessons according to his students needs. As I mentioned I have had many instructors in the past and a lot of them wanted to teach me how to pass the practical and not how to become a good driver. The first thing Chris told me was that he will make me an excellent driver, he exceeded my expectations as he made me an exceptional driver. I would highly recommend Chris."

Phil Kalungi, South Londone

29 July 2016

"Kevin Mantle was recommended to me from a friend and I was very happy with the service. He taught me at a pace that was right for me and was happy to go over things as many times as I needed. I always felt comfortable and looked forward to my lessons. Kevin gave great explanations on how to do manoeuvres correctly with tips to get them right every time. He only suggested me booking my test when he felt I was ready which resulted in me passing first time meaning I didn't waist time and money on multiple tests. Would definitely recommend."

I had a big self-confidence problem and she helped me overcome that and move forward. After around 30 hours, I decided to take the test and got it the first time. I couldn’t have done it without Danielle’s help! Thanks again and good luck to all the new learners :)."

Charity"It was a good choice to enrol in Elite Driving School. I was hesitant at first about me being able to drive since I didn't have any background in Driving. But Elite help me decide based on my zero experience. They introduced me to Mr. Rob Barber. Rob is a good match Instructor for a beginner like me. He has a big heart for learners like me. He has been there since the very first time I learned how to step inside the car. I was a difficult learner, I find everything so difficult but with Rob's help it went well. Rob has been very positive about my progress, he was always there to support me, and encourage me. I can recommend Elite Driving School to anyone who wants to learn from a zero experience. I am very grateful to Elite and most especially to my Instructor Mr. Rob Barber."

Seb Noller, Redhill, Surrey

18 July 2016

"After starting with manual, experiencing difficult instructors that bashed my confidence and didn't pay attention to how I learnt, I stumbled across Elite and all things change with this instructor… My driving instructor Andy Kirby is a competent, professional and hard working instructor! He took the patience to really understand where I needed the guidance especially with roundabouts and junctions and all the extra 'bits' that sometimes is easy to forget could be a great risk in driving. I had gained confidence in not just passing but developed the experience that has allowed me to feel alert and confident again on the roads. With his great sense of humour and drive to teach, I couldn't recommend anyone else! Thank you to Andy and don't forget to book him up ASAP! :)."

Aiste Vilcinskaite, Crawley, West Sussex

Jack Brodie, Dorking, Surrey

12 July 2016

"My instructor at elite was Paul Stubbington who not only helped me pass first time but also made sure I was a competent driver before taking my test. Rather than just pointing out mistakes I had made, he helped me to understand why I had made them and how I could improve. Really recommend Paul as a driving instructor as he is calm, and really teaches you how to drive rather than just pass your test."

Matthew Ormandy, Caterham, Surrey

Shreena"Thanks to Paul Stubbington I passed my test first time! He was patient and enthusiastic, helping me to understand where I had made mistakes and discussing problems or anything I was unsure about. He made lessons enjoyable and boosted my confidence whilst driving around Croydon to ensure I was comfortable with all potential situations that may occur. Would thoroughly recommend both Paul and Elite for the high standard of teaching. "

Katie"My experience of learning to drive with Sue from Elite was exceptional. I felt extremely comfortable in the car at all times, and made great progress, passing first time! I couldn't have asked for a better instructor and I have even recommended Sue to many of my friends, who haven't had the best experiences with previous driving companies, who are now enjoying learning to drive so much more. Overall, very pleased and thankful for all the support!"

"Ian was my instructor and I would highly recommend him because he was so patient with me and of course very friendly. I had some very bad habits in driving and I wouldn't just leave them. He dealt with everything so patiently and made sure I am not inconsistent with mirror, signal routine. He is good with building up confidence of his students, I would recommend Elite (Ian, in particular) as an ideal school for potential learners."

"I can't recommend Kevin enough, he wasn't my first, but was most certainly the best instructor I have dealt with. I passed my test Second time thanks to Kev's tuition. He was relaxed, informative and let me work through the requirements at my own pace. I never felt pressured when driving and his flexible nature allowed me to fit in driving, around my work Schedule. If you want your Pink License, look no further than the Tuition of Kevin."

Shelley"I cannot fault my experience with Paul at Elite. I had been learning prior to my lessons with Elite, however had given up learning with my old instructor as he was knocking my confidence down and was in short, awful! Since taking lessons with Paul my confidence has been built back up. He was always patient and never once rose his voice when I made mistakes. I actually started to enjoy my lessons instead of hate them! I passed first time, and would recommend Paul to anyone thinking of taking up driving lessons, especially if you're a nervous person/ are lacking in confidence. I'm really grateful for Paul's encouragement and support :)"

Luke"Passed my test this morning, first time! All thanks to Jenny, making me more scared of her than I was of the examiner! Jenny wasn't my first instructor, but she was by far the best, making me realise how in need I was of a different teaching style and experience. In just a few weeks she was able to improve my driving immensely."

Luke Davies, Tadwoth, Surrey

Prad"I would like to thank my driving instructor Sue for her highly professional and dedicated approach and assistance. Though I’m not a new driver, yet it would have been a real challenge for me to clear Practical Driving test in UK without several techniques and tips Sue taught me during my driving lessons. Her training and explanations were easy to understand and reasonable. She is also able to manage her schedule very sensibly and effectively to cater her student’s requirements. I wish her and entire Elite team every success in future. Thanks again Sue :)."

Lauren"I cannot recommend Richard Broughton enough! I passed yesterday and could not have been happier. Richard has so much patience and really takes time to make you a well-rounded and safe driver - no question is too silly to ask, believe me! During lessons he makes you feel comfortable and relaxed with his humour and stories, and once you have the grips of the basics he encourages you to pick what you want to focus on per lesson. He has a very busy schedule, but he always makes time to fit in extra lessons especially when your test gets closer. I could not have asked for a better instructor, thank you!"

Lauren Highton, Weybridge,Surrey

"Amazing service provided and would definitely recommend to others. Had Chris Lisney as my instructor- worked together for a while, such a nice man and he is so patient and makes you feel like you can do it, when you're doubting yourself. He has brought my confidence levels up so high, so if you want a good instructor I'd 100% recommend Chris. I couldn't have done it without him."

Sally Hyneman, Kenley,Surrey

"I had Chris Lisney as my driving instructor. He was incredibly patient with me, despite my nerves and how long it took me to build my confidence. Chris is very calm and friendly, which is so helpful and highly recommended for anyone, like me, who's a little nervous about being on the road. The way Chris explained what I needed to know was so easy to follow, which was very useful given my previous instructor kept changing the information he gave me and confusing me. Would definitely recommend Chris to all."

Patricijia"I took my lessons with Paul Stubbington who was great! He was very helpful, patient and understanding. He was teaching me to drive and not just to pass the test, which is something I really liked. Instead of just pointing out mistakes, we would discuss them in detail to make sure I fully understood what's gone wrong and learned from it. By the time I booked my test, I was confident that I knew what I was doing and I passed it first time with only 3 minors! The level of teaching is really very high and I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone who wants to learn to drive (and not just pass)."

Louise"I had a fantastic experience learning to drive with Ian at Driving Elite. Ian's patience and ability to pick up on my learning style were priceless. He had a great knack for knowing exactly why I was going wrong and how to correct it, before I even knew why I was doing things! He has a great focus on increasing confidence, which is very important for learning to drive." "I'd recommend this company and Ian anybody. Great value for money."

Sophia"From the moment I looked at the Elite website, and went through all the testimonials, it became apparent to me that it was Sue Garner who I wanted to have to teach my daughter. I was told by Elite that she was no longer taking bookings, as she was oversubscribed. I now know why! Since my daughter has been having lessons, I feel I have learnt to drive again for the 1st time! My daughter is FOREVER correcting my driving!! I am so very happy that I waited for her. I will always be indebted to her for not only getting her through the test, but for taking the time to explain things to her. Thank you SO much Sue! Xx."

When I failed first time lost my confidence and was a nervous wreck decided to change instructors I found the wonderfull Andy Kirby who I would like to say a huge thankyou for taking time and patience for restoring my confidence in myself and driving for finding my weaknesses and working with me to overcome them even when Challenging. You made me feel relaxed and at ease was like having a family member sitting next to me, great personality great sense of humour and above all an awesome driving instructor, I shall miss our weekly lesson thanks for having faith in me, best wishes for the future x. Anyone reading this if like me you have lost confidence or feel like giving up don't! You can do it just find the right instructor x."

Sophia"I had Sue Garner as my instructor and was absolutely fantastic in every aspect possible! Words cannot express my gratitude towards her and what she has made me achieve is invaluable. Her kind, patient and very understanding nature came through in just the first few lessons and I knew that I had chosen the right driving school along with the perfect driving instructor. I was always a nervous and anxious driver and each lesson, she managed to build up my confidence allowing me to drive confidently and competently on the roads. As well as her caring nature, she is excellent with time management and very flexible when changing lessons around so that everyone gets a fair amount of driving each week which allowed me to progress further as I was able to have regular lessons. As well as learning to drive safely, Sue put a great amount of energy into delivering fun lessons which are memories that I will never forget. Due to her amazing driving and teaching skills, I managed to pass my test first time which I never thought I could do. Thank you for putting your utmost time into helping me become a driver and I would recommend elite to anyone and most importantly Sue! I've really enjoyed our lessons together and will thorghly miss our driving moments! Thank you once again!xx. "

Jonas"A friend recommended elite to be one of the best driving school there is so I decided to give it a try. This was my first time driving lessons. That's where I met my Instructor Paul, who took me through everything calmly and thoroughly. He was very patient with me, though I made mistakes and always encouraged me and corrected. Felt confident enough to take my test just after about 9 lessons with Paul, but failed the first . Paul took me through my weakness after that time which we worked on for 4 lessons more and this time I was sure I had it. And again I failed, this time one could say I passed but you sometime just get that one test instructor who's just gonna ruin it for you. Now, I have failed twice and more people will just blame it on the instructor and change the driving school , but the way I was comfortable with Paul and how professional he was about his job and patient with me , I didn't change him and had just one more lesson with before I had my 3rd test. This time I passed with just a minor fault. All this was just between a 4 month period. With this said, I highly recommend Paul as he is very proffesional instructor and was always on time. Paul is very patient and understanding with his students."

"My instructor Danielle was top notch: knowledgeable, calm, confident and kind. She taught me everything I needed to know to pass on the first try and gave me confidence. My husband and I are both from the US and have decades of driving experience but needed tips to pass the UK practical test. She understood just what we needed and where our weaknesses were and in just a couple lessons got us sorted out. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Punctual, organised and professional too."

"I've recently just started my driving lessons again after not doing some for over a year and I must say I have learnt a lot in the 4 hours Iv done so far than what Iv learnt with the other driving school. Matt is a brilliant tutor and I will highly recommend him to anyone."

Hayley Clarke, Wallington

07 May 2016

I have always been nervous in cars because I was a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident and I could not shake the terror from my mind. That is why I waited till I was nearly 40 to venture to learn to drive. My instructor was Garry Commey. I told him my background and I did not have to keep reminding him. He was very patient, even when my nerves put us in danger. An exceptionally supportive tutor, who made sure he calmed me down and gave me the confidence I needed to enable me to gain my independence by driving. He taught me great and easy ways to accomplish all the manoeuvres, which I have passed on to others. He made me feel comfortable and confident, which is priceless. Needless to say, I passed my test first time with only one very minor fault. I will be forever indebted to him for giving me my freedom and independence. Thank you Garry! You are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!"

"I'm currently having lessons with Matt Timor and would highly recommend him to learners of all abilities. Matt has a very calm, flexible approach to lessons which has allowed me to develop my confidence as a driver. Lessons are pupil orientated and Matt is extremely patient as you develop, whilst also providing continual feedback so that you feel that every lesson has been really worthwhile. Learning to drive has been a lot more fun that I'd imagined it would be and that is entirely down to Matt's laid back, supportive approach. "

Rachel Gore, Wallington

01 May 2016

Prior to learning to drive, I didn't have a lot of confidence, but that changed when under Matt's instruction. He was very patient and explained things in a way that has helped me become a better driver; giving me greater confidence and skill when it comes to driving. His experience and knowledge at the wheel came through in the lessons which helped a great deal when I had any questions, no matter how small. He also recently gave me some refresher lessons when I hadn't driven for a while which has furthered my confidence and ability on the road. Thank you Matt! "

VALERIA DOVE"After having lessons with another driving school that were going anywhere, I decided to change my driving instructor. Richard Broughton, with his knowledge, patience and sense of humour, made me feel confident in my driving and helped me get to test standards very quickly.

"My son has been using this school in order to help him pass his driving test, since around February. Initially we encountered an issue, and after an email to the company, the issue was resolved by Ian S amicably and very quickly. Ian bent over backwards to accommodate my son. Their service and quality was really outstanding. I can honestly say that my son passed his driving test due to his commitment as well as with the guidance, help and instructions provided by Ian. He is an absolute star! I highly recommend Ian S and the Elite Driving School."

Chavier"I started my lessons in February 2016, after having bad experience from another driving school that taught me a bad habit. My instructor Ian gave me the confidience, skecting scenarios were I went wrong and explaining why that happened and telling me what I could have done. I owe it all to Elite which I highly recommend and Ian who was patient and helped me improve and doing mock tests which helped me a lot as I knew what would be expected of me on the day of the test. Did my practical today 21 April 2016 and passed first time, I never thought I would pass in such a short space of time as my theory test certificate expired soon."

"I have been learning with ELITE since my birthday in August and I passed my practical test yesterday (18/04/16) which was my first time. My instructor was Garry who was very kind and helpful and explained everything very thoroughly. He was very patient when I didnt quite understand and he was very motivating when I didnt do something quite right. I really enjoyed learning to drive and I will think I will ask Garry to help me with my Pass Plus in the near future. He really is a great teacher."

"After a very unpleasant experience with another local driving school, I looked around for another school/instructor for my 17 year old daughter. I decided on Elite due to the comments/reviews on the website. WOW, what can I say. My daughter had Chris Lisney and what a lucky girl she was ! From being a "novice" driver following her lessons with the other school, to within a few weeks being test ready. She passed her test first time with very few lessons due to the excellent teaching she received. Chris turned up on time every day, sometimes early and gave her at least an hour, sometimes more. I strongly recommend Chris 100% to anyone. Thanks to Chris my daughter drove to school the first time by herself this morning, I had no concerns whatsoever, THANK YOU !"

Nicholas"I was returning to driving after having last had lessons when I was 17, which was over 15 years ago with a different driving school. I stopped because nerves got to me after two near crashes during lessons entirely due to to other driver errors. Paul assessed my level and took me from a nervous driver, to passing first time. He is a very patient instructor and I would highly recommend Paul and Elite Driving School to any learner drivers. Another thing to add, their free resources to help pass the theory test are superb, I scored 49 out of 50, which is why I have rated the service received as 5 star all round. "

Morris"From day one I knew that Sue Garner was a great driving instructor! Having had poor service and bad experiences with another organisation I contact Elite with no real expectations. Sue has now taught all three of my children to drive, overcoming both very anxious and overconfident students with great success. All three are now good, confident drivers. Sue's reliability cannot be faulted and she has always been accommodating when changes to lessons have been needed. All in all a great driving instructor who I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Sue. "

Elizabeth Morris, South Croydon, Surrey

Anastasia"Elite have been a fantastic company to learn with and I have no regrets in choosing them. My process of learning to drive has been calm, well managed and fun! My instructor, Sue, was reassuring and organised throughout the process, which helped me so much. She had a brilliant knowledge on the test area and the nitty gritty test requirements, allowing me to pass first time. Thanks Sue!"

Anastasia Larby, South Croydon, Surrey

18 March 2016

"Prior to Elite, I've had an unpleasant experience with an angry, paranoid, micromanaging, steering-wheel grabbing driving instructor for a couple of months which resulted in a failed test with 8 minors and 3 majors. Even though I've had 15 years of experience driving outside UK, I've lost confidence in my skills because of him. So I decided to search for the zenmaster of the instructors, and e-mailed Elite. They suggested Chris. From first lesson onwards, he displayed a professional, patient, nice and calm personality and pointed out areas of weakness in a rational manner. He was also very practical about otherwise illogical sounding UK driving test myths - like checking mirrors every 5 seconds for no reason - so everything started making sense again. I've passed the test on my second try with only 2 minors, and I owe it to how Chris teaches. In conclusion, Elite provides top notch service with well maintained cars and professional instructors. I'd like to extend my thanks to both Chris and Elite team."

Jacob"For personal reasons I needed to pass my test within a month. I got in contact with Richard Broughton @ Elite Lessons and sure enough within a month of my first lesson I have passed my test with only 6 minor faults. Richard brings a calming presence to each lessons and is very safe and professional. I fully recommend Elite Lessons to anyone who wants to learn to drive in a safe environment."

Jacob Q McGee, Asford, Middlesex

15 March 2016

"Started lessons with Chris Lisney and was going great. Got to the point of test ready. But due to me still not passing my theory. I had to temporarily stop my lessons until I passed. Which was about a 2 year break. But when I did I get back in contact with Chris who was happy enough to still help me. In which case we got straight back into the lessons and carried on where we left off. Had a few more lessons and took my test and passed first time. Chris is a great instructor, very friendly, patient and makes you feel at ease. Thank you very much Chris for everything. Definitely recommending for sure."

"Alister was my instructor. He is extremely prompt and professional. A very patient and understanding instructor who knows how to tackle your driving nerves and make you a confident driver. He is flexible with dates and times, and always willing to accommodate any changes. He makes you feel at ease and is readily happy to go over any concerns. I recommend Alister as he is the type of instructor that a learner driver needs. "

"Alister is a great driving instructor. He always turns up on time and is very professional. When learning to drive with him I had a couple of instructors before him and Alister is the best. You can have a chat with him at the same time as making progress at driving every lesson. With Alister, you can pass your way; you can book lessons at your convenience and choose to learn aspects of driving that you find challenging. I passed today and I am ecstatic! Thank you Alister! Thank you Elite! "

James"Having been recommended to me by sister, I learnt for my test with Sue Garner from Elite Driving School. Sue is an excellent instructor, who is always very patient and helpful. She know the test area extremely well and pretty much every spot the test centre might try and catch you out on. She helped greatly with my manoeuvres and she is also very quick to pick up on any mistakes. I would highly recommend Sue, and Elite Driving School to anyone who is even thinking about starting lessons, I don't think I could have passed first time without her!"

Ranjan"I passed my test with the help of my instructor Matt. Matt is very professional and patient in his lessons. Along with that he is very friendly and made each lesson fun to have. I had zero experience of driving before starting lessons with Elite and Matt. Matt is very patient and he clearly explained every aspect of driving. He gives constructive feedback to help improve your driving. He focuses on making you a better driver for life than making you just pass the test. I will highly recommend Matt to anyone who wants to learn driving."

"Danielle is a great instructor and I can't recommend her highly enough. Her teaching technique is calm and patient whilst making lessons enjoyable. Things were explained clearly and each lesson was structured and well planned. Danielle worked around me arranging lessons and was always very accommodating. She was willing to go the extra mile. With her ability to motivate, continued support and confidence building, I felt fully ready to take my test after four months and I passed with one minor. Thank you Danielle for all your support and hard work!"

Salwa"I had a great experience learning to drive with Ian. S from Elite and was able to pass my test on the 2nd attempt. I am a nervous driver and had very little driving experience when I began with Elite and was also new to the country. Ian was a very understanding and patient instructor, who provided clear explanations during every lesson and positive yet constructive feedback to build my confidence up. I felt very comfortable learning to drive with Ian and my driving abilities increased significantly in a short period of time. Still can't believe I have passed the test! Couldn't have done it without the patience and support of Ian. Thank you Ian and Elite. "

Jon"I passed my test first time on 17 December after learning to drive with Matt T. I'm absolutely over the moon (six months ago I couldn't even put the car in gear!) and so glad I went with Matt and Elite. Matt is an amazing instructor and I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone, no matter how much of a beginner you are. I felt instantly at ease the first time I stepped into his car, and we've had great a laugh together – but more importantly, he's somehow turned me from a total novice to a driving pro in 40ish hours. Thank you, Matt! "

Jon Chapple, London

Kirsty"Jenny had a challenge straight off with me. Very nervous, lack of confidence driving, dyslexic and pregnant. Jenny has been amazing, encouraged me all the way and seemed to know exactly what to do to calm my nerves. The way Jenny taught me made sure I had fun and we had a giggle every lesson, so I looked forward to every lesson even if I was nervous and feeling sick. I felt very safe with Jenny and knew she wouldn't let me get into anything I couldn't handle, even handling anything the road threw at me. I wasn't perfect but Jenny taught me what I was doing wrong, but also told me when I had handled others driving safely. Jenny made sure I didn't just pass my test, but taught me to drive to keep Bump and me safe. Jenny is an amazing instructor and I can't recommend her enough. I'll miss our weekly driving lessons. "

Kirsty Daniel, Wallington, Surrey

19 December 2015

Ian"I was recommended Elite driving school by another company and I'm glad I chose this one. Adrienne Marlow was my instructor and she was very welcoming and understanding. She helped me through my nerves and was very patient with me. Adrienne was very flexible and her car was a smooth drive. I was worried about night driving but she reassured me about and now I probably prefer to drive at night. Adrienne knew when I was ready for my test even if I didn't which showed great trust and faith in my abilities. In a way its a shame I passed because she was such an excellent teacher better than a school teacher. I would highly recommend Adrienne Marlow to anyone that wants to learn to drive. Good value for money and excellent tutorage. "

Ian Taylor, Aldershot, Surrey

14 December 2015

Georgina"I was recommended to contact Adrienne at Elite by one of my friends who had passed first time and could not praise her enough. From the moment I had my first lesson, I knew that I had made the correct choice of instructor. Adrienne is a lovely, extremely patient and motivational driving instructor. She explained everything to me clearly and in a way that I fully understood and I quickly gained confidence with each lesson. I looked forward to our weekly sessions and steadily improved week on. Adrienne has not only given me the opportunity to become more independent but she has also boosted my confidence enormously as well as helped me pass my driving test first time. If you are looking for an instructor who will teach you how to drive but also put her who heart and soul into each lesson, look no further. "

Georgina Burr, Aldershot, Surrey

"I have just had my first driving lesson with Jenny and I thought it went really well. She is very chatty and is happy to have a bit of a laugh (provided that you aren't trying to kill her!) Her style of teaching is just what I was looking for. I'm a nervous driver but I felt very comfortable and relaxed with Jenny right away. She is very understanding and I love her quirky terminology (cabbages) which makes it fun to learn. I would highly recommend Jenny as a driving instructor if you are looking to have fun whilst learning. Just make sure you don't put fingermarks on her mirror - she may kill you. You have been warned! :)."

Jessica True, Epsom, Surrey

08 December 2015

06 December 2015

I only had around 7 lessons with him as I just needed a refresher to get my through my test but I honestly wish I had him when first started to learn how to drive. He makes you feel so comfortable behind the wheel especially with his random outbursts of singing and sarcasm. I will definately recommend Richard to any of my friends wanting to drive. Thank You"

Megan"I passed my test with 7 months worth of lessons (around 1 a week) which was fantastic as I wanted to learn as soon as possible. My teacher was really friendly, empathetic and supportive, (especially when I was a new learner) but was also strict sometimes, which I think is necessary as driving can be dangerous. They took into account what I felt I needed to work on before my test which boosted my confidence and was offered a motorway lesson for later after I have built confidence as a new driver."

Megan Gilbert, Banstead, Surrey

13 November 2015

Bryony"I didn't speak to Elite as my parents booked the first set of lessons. I then continued with the same driving instructor who was amazing! Very supportive and professional.

Francesca"I had my driving test on Saturday with Ian as my instructor. With terrible weather conditions, I honestly thought that I would fail. However, I kept calm and remembered all that Ian had taught me and I PASSED!!! I can honestly say that Ian is the best instructor - he's always clear with his instructions, very calm and patient, especially when I had troubles with the manoeuvres. He eased my understanding on how to do them properly and accurately which helped me gain confidence for the exam. I also liked the fact that Ian always tried to make sure that I had a lesson booked in every week, despite his busy schedule. This helped me learn how to drive progressively."

"As well as actually learning how to drive, Ian focused very much on how to drive SAFELY, which helped me become aware of possible dangers when on the road. I am very greatful to have had him as my instructor as he was also very supportive and helped me keep my nerves down minutes before the exam. I honestly couldn't have done it without him! :). I am very greatful to have had a brilliant instructor and will always remember everything that I have learnt and remain a safe driver. I strongly recommend Ian and Elite Driving School as they are a wonderful company to learn with! You won't regret it!"

I learnt with Karen Weighall and I felt she gave me the confidence I needed to become a successful driver. I really enjoyed every second of learning as Karen was friendly and supportive. I thought the use of the progress card helped me to see what I needed to work on so I could improve ready for my test. With Elite I managed to pass first time! I would definitely recommend them to my friends! "

"I have passed my practical driving test at first time today with Gary From Elite . Thank you Eddie introducing me to Gary who is genuinely good at what he does. Elite driving school is the best driving school ever . If you are scared and nervous to drive like me go to Elite driving school and ask Gary. Very punctual, flexible and suits your needs all the time, he allowed me to have my lessons at early o'clock so that I could fit it in before work . Somehow Gary will make you feel relaxed no matter how anxious or uncomfortable you are. He is understanding, patient and very well balanced at being able to get along with you and have a laugh but also to be strict enough with you to tell you when you are wrong. I wish you every success in the world. All the best. Erden x"

Kalina"Ian was my third instructor and by far the best one. He was always patient and helped me to built up my confidence and get rid of some bad habits "inherited" from the previous instructors. He was always happy to go through things I didn't feel comfortable with again and answer any questions. He also pushed me to book my test when he thought I was ready (even though I wasn't sure if I really was:), unlike my previous instructor who kept driving me around for months. I passed the first time with only two minors. Would definitely recommend Elite."

Jo"Big Thank You to Sue Garner - the best instructor anyone could ask for! I struggled a lot with another instructor from another school and it wasn't until I met Sue that I realised what proper lessons should look like. Always patient, competent, professional and friendly she was able to teach me ( I thought a hopeless case I was) to drive and PASS. Thank you Sue."

"I took my driving lessons with Ian and was really happy with his tuition. He explained everything to me patiently and calmly, and was always happy to go through anything I wasn't confident with - remember the parallel park Ian! Passed first time with a couple of minor faults, absolutely delighted :) Can't thank Ian and Elite enough, brilliant driving school and would recommend them to anyone looking to learn. Cheers mate, enjoying the freedom!"

She was always reliable and helped to tailor my lessons to what I wanted to learn. Her emphasis was always on making me a well rounded driver long term and not just getting me through my test.

He also always had some great stories to tell which made the lessons entertaining. Thanks Richard!"

"Recently had my first ever lesson with Jenny, and despite my nerves I was really happy with how it went!She's a great instructor and was understanding when I made mistakes and clearly took me through what went wrong and how to not have it happen again next time. I'm looking forward to getting more experience, and I'm sure with Jenny's help I'm going to gain confidence and eventually pass while enjoying the experience a lot."

"I passed my driving test first time on Monday, with four minors. When I first started lessons at Elite Driving School I was very nervous and hesitant on the roads. Thankfully my fantastic instructor, Amanda, really built up my confidence with her patient and thorough teaching. Amanda prepared me extremely well for the practical test, I felt entirely ready on the day and so I would certainly recommend her as an instructor. "

"I passed my driving test on 19th September. I can not thank enough to Andy Kirby, he is such an amazing instructor. I have started without any practice, even in the first lesson he did teach me a lot and with the following lesson he helped me to build my confidence. I had great time in my lessons he was always calm, punctual and never fed up explaining same things again and again sometimes with his amazing drawing :). I feel so lucky to have such a great instructor because I heard so many horrible stories. I highly recommend Andy to anyone who is looking for automatic driving lessons. Thank you very much Andy!!! Of course I am so glad to pass but I will miss our chats and laughs:). "

Nuria"Big thank you to Richard Broughton for being so friendly since day one, making me feel so comfortable while driving and also always making me look forward to my next lesson. After a previous bad experience with another driving school Richard helped me to get my confidence back by getting me out of my comfort zone. His teaching approach always felt very natural making me feel more confident about my driving. Thank you for all your patience and also for helping me to get my license before my little one arrives. You have been an exceptional instructor and me and baby in the belly are going to miss your singing every Sunday morning :)."

James"Hi, I had Umut as my driving instructor. I had him as my instructor for a few months and passed my test on 21st Sept 2015. What can I say, from the 1st lesson to the last he made me feel at ease with encouragement mixed with clear and easy instruction. The goal was not just to pass my test, he made sure that I learned all the necessary skills to be a safe driver, which will stay with me forever. I would like to thank Umut, for one, his patience with me and two the humour that he brought to lessons that actually made (initially quite daunting) a fun experience. Thanks again mate!"

"I had driving lessons with Chris L for a few months. Unfortunately I moved out of area before I was test ready. However I found Chris to be a brilliant teacher and am gutted I cannot continue lessons with him. Chris is a very patient and remained calm and supportive no matter how many times I stalled! He explains things very well and is very responsive to personal strengths and weaknesses. He makes all instructions very clear and gave me a great deal of confidence. Chris is a natural teacher and great guy. I would definitely recommend lessons with Chris to anyone especially those with no driving experience (like me). "

Aileen"I was extremely nervous about starting to learn to drive but my instructor Sue instantly put me at ease and throughout my lessons she knew what were my weak spots and my strengths. Combined with her patience and support, I managed to pass my test first time after only having lessons for 4 months. I would highly recommend elite as a driving school and especially Sue as an instructor to have."

"I started driving lessons before with a different company however the instructor wasn't really helpful and informative so I stopped doing lessons. After a few months passed I choose to start again with a different company and came across elite driving school who allowed me to do driving lessons with Chris. Chris was far far better then my previous instructor, Chris was so helpful and explained all the features of driving and of a car. Due to Chris being friendly and professional I passed my test first time! If you live in the CR4 area I highly recommend Chris as your instructor!"

Karen was really really patience with me and let me feel confident. I passed my practical driving test on 6 of August just before my holiday. After the exam I received my driving licence just in 6 days, and I could enjoy my holiday with my new driving licence. It is great feeling to be finally independent.

"I had a short time period to learn to drive as I am very pregnant. I had 2 hour lessons every week with Alister who understood that I needed to pass quickly. He was very calm even when I panicked for no reason in the car! I passed first time this week and I'm thrilled! I would definitely recommend Alister and Elite Driving School."

Fiona D, Carshalton, Surrey

"Having put off trying to pass my driving test for years, I was certainly not the easiest of pupils to deal with. And yet my instructor Garry at Elite did so with patience and good humour! Garry is incredibly reliable, always turning up on time for lessons without fail, which given my busy schedule I particularly valued. I am now planning to complete the Pass Plus course with Garry."

Lucy"After a couple of bad experiences with other schools I had completely lost my confidence in driving and was close to giving up. I contacted Elite and after just one lesson, my instructor Sue changed this. Instead of dreading them like before, I looked forward to them and finally believed that I can get through it. Sue is a brilliant instructor and I have already been recommending her to family and friends and will continue to do so. Thank you so much Sue, I would never have passed without you. "

Sam"I am glad to have taken my driving lessons with Richard B whose expert training coupled with experience of training people like me who have initially learnt driving in other countries outside the EU greatly helped me to eventually pass my driving test at a second attempt after correcting my false confidence that saw me failing at the first attempt. Many thanks Richard."

Samuel Kabuye, Feltham, Middlesex

25 August 2015

Grace"Richard B is a great driving instructor. During my first few lessons I was quite nervous, but his friendly attitude and hilarious humor quickly broke the ice and made the lessons fun. All the information was explained clearly and concisely and allowed me to progress at my own pace and he is very calm and patient providing the best environment to learn in. I've passed my test and can't be happier; I am a safe and confident driver thanks to Richard. I will surely miss my Monday evening hit-song performances and couldn't recommend Richard and Elite more!"

Grace A, Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey

Clare"I recently passed my driving test first time after learning to drive from scratch with Matt from Elite. The company were very efficient when I first contacted them to inquire about learning and Matt went out of his way to accommodate my ever-changing availability times. Matt was also able to adapt his teaching style to teach me in a way that worked best for me, and explain things clearly - he also worked hard on making me confident in my abilities. I would highly recommend learning with Matt from Elite as he is very friendly and approachable and can break down the learning process so you don't feel too overwhelmed with everything that is going on! "

Clare W, Croydon, Surrey

"Gary V is a fantastic instructor; very clear instructions, always patient when practicing manoeuvres and very flexible and committed to you as a customer (he got up at 4am to drive me to my test!!) I could not have asked for a nicer and more encouraging teacher. I passed my test, first time, after only 3 weeks of lessons. Thank you Gary!"

India Clare, South London

Bessem"So after many years of delaying my driving lessons, I finally decided to go for it and I am so glad I chose Elite and got to learn with Richard B. He is a great instructor and a great guy in general. He was patient, explained everything very well, made every lesson easy and fun. Not a single week came where I was not looking forward to the lesson as he always puts a smile on your face. I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone looking for a great, smooth and enjoyable learning experience. It was a pleasure and I passed first time, thank you Richard!!"

Bessam Al-Jarian, New Malden, Surrey

Simone"Finally, through the patience and perseverance of my driving instructor Umut I was passed my test, A great, and dedicated instructor who was able to guide me through learning to drive. I would definitely recommend this driving school (especially Umut) to anyone who wants to turn their green licence pink! Thanks Umut, thanks Elite."

Simone Nelson, London

"Gary V is a very calm and friendly instructor, and always created a very positive atmosphere during our lessons, which is exactly what I was after. Unfortunately my previous instructor (whilst good at his job) made me feel quite negative during lessons which hindered my progress. I took a look at this website to see which other driving schools were good in my area and found Elite Driving School right at the top. Thankfully they did serve my area, and all the previous negativity I held vanished as soon as I began with Gary V.

Lessons were longer and more frequent, and I began to progress at a much faster rate. In the end I managed to pass my practical test on the first go, with four minor faults. Gary is exactly what you would want from an instructor, and I would highly recommend him if you are looking to start driving lessons. As well as technical knowledge and experience, he is cheerful and easy to get along with, always asking what I've been getting up to and allowing us to have friendly conversation as well as learning. I feel a bit sad that I won't be able to see him a few times a week anymore, as he actually made me look forward to driving lessons, rather than dread them.

All in all, going with Elite Driving School has been the best decision I could have made. It's definitely on the expensive side, but in my opinion worth the money. I'm sure all of their other instructors work to the same standards as Gary V, so if you do live in any of the postcodes they cover, definitely get in touch. You won't regret it."

Jag N, Hayes, Middlesex

03 August 2015

"I took my driving lessons with Elite and I passed my driving test 1st time with ONE minor fault. Many thanks to my instructor Gary. He is very patient, friendly and flexible. He was very supportive and helped me to become a more confident driver. Also helped in identifying the problem areas and more focus on improvising them. Overall I had a fantastic driving experience and Gary is is the right instructor for anyone who wants to pass the driving test any sooner in the right way. I would strongly recommend to my friends."

Megan"I did my lessons with Richard Broughton and from the beginning I had no confidence. He managed in every lesson to calm my nerves by calmly correcting me and also being funny and chatting away, and he also manages to burst into song at the most random moments!! Through patient teaching and his ability to be understanding and efforts to build a rapport with me made me believe in my own driving skills and also make the lesson easy, fun and enjoyable !! Thanks Richard, after my pass plus test I might do unnecesay lessons just to hear you opera skills once again !! Best driving instructor ever (And God I have had a few !!! )."

"Amanda Saunders was a fantastic driving instructor. She made me feel very confident and always made sure I was clear on what I needed to improve. Her patience and humour allowed me to develop my driving skills very quickly and with her help I passed my driving test first time with only 2 minors!"

Connie Saunders, Whyteleafe, Surrey

03 August 2015

Thomas"Umut made learning to drive easy. He put confidence in my ability from the very start, allowed me to make my own mistakes and gave me guidance when I needed it. This meant that I spent my entire lessons taxiing him around Croydon, West Wickham and Addington, instead of pulled over at the side of the road, and as a result I learnt quickly and passed my practical first time with only two minors.

The best thing about Umut is that he's an honest, chilled out guy. He won't try to make you have more lessons than you really need to pass your test and in fact it was him who was pushing me to book my theory and practical so I could be done as soon as possible. He was always calm and patient with me and when I was nervous he would put me at ease with his silly jokes. I can definitely recommend Umut."

Thomas Garnham, Croydon, Surrey

"I had the practical test yesterday in Croydon and passed it easily. I had lessons with Chris Lisney who was very experienced and professional. The lessons with him gave me the confidence to pass the test easily and drive confidently which was the most important thing for me. I'm planning to book the pass plus lessons with him very soon. Thanks."

Mohammed, South Croydon, Surrey

22 July 2015

"I had tried to learn to drive a few times over the years and had ended up giving up. I finally stuck it out this time around with Elite and my instructor Garry C was fantastic. As someone who lost a lot of confidence after failing a fair few tests with other instructors, he made me feel completely at ease and took it all at my own pace. He was extremely patient with me and I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons because his way of teaching is extremely encouraging. I would definitely recommend using Elite to learn to drive as I FINALLY did it! Garry C gave me a lot of confidence behind the wheel with his friendly approach to teaching. Always on time and tried his best to fit around my schedule! I'm now going to use Elite again for Pass plus :). "

She made me feel comfortable and at ease straight away, even though I was super nervous following a bad experience with another instructor, as he used to shout at me rather than help me. Thank goodness I found Amanda, who was recommended to me by a friend who also passed 1st time with her. Thanks Amanda, and I'll be recommending you to anyone I know that needs lessons."

He is always early for lessons and always made time to fit me in whenever I wanted a lesson even at awkward times. Alister kept me calm and helped me with my nerves on the day of the test and was the main reason I passed. I would recommend Alister to anyone as he is the best around. "

Overall, I could not recommend Elite and Richard more highly. Thanks Richard!"

Cameron Price, Esher, Surrey

24 June 2015

Jodie"After a very convincing recommendation from a friend (who had recently passed), I decided to change my instructor. My new instructor was Garry and he was amazing. From the first lesson I had with him I instantly knew that I made the right choice. Garry assessed me and knew exactly what I needed to improve. He didn't rush things, everything was done at the pace I was comfortable with. He also made tasks easy and constantly reminded me that I could do it and I did. I passed on the 22nd of this month :D

I just want to show my appreciation to Gary once more and let everyone know that HE IS THE INSTRUCTOR TO PICK as he makes learning fun and there is truly never a dull moment with him THANK YOU GARY AND ELITE."

Vicky"I passed my driving test yesterday after only 3 months of learning with Sue! … 1st attempt! I would like to say thank you to Elite and especially to Sue. From very first lesson my driving instructor was wonderful - very professional, experienced and accommodating/understanding. Sue, your patience and kindness helped me to learn a skill for life from scratch in such short period of time, I'm ready to be on the road full of confidence! Test was very easy actually - all due to your knowledge, experience and obviously teaching technique. You are brilliant instructor And a beautiful person. I've been looking for driving school for a while, being 32 is tricky age as all your peers are already driving but friend's kids are too young. Just by pure luck I came across this website and after reading the reviews I decided to give it a go. So I have to leave a review just to reconfirm what a fantastic driving school it is, hopefully it will help other people to choose the right place to learn. Well done Guys at Elite - you are spot on!"

He is my second driving instructor and I am so happy I found that good experience teacher. Andy explain everything so well and so clear. I had only few lessons with him and compere to the previous driving instructor I learn a lot more with Andy!!! I will definitely recommend Andy to my friends and people which want to learn how to drive."

Sara Labeca-Benfele, Dorking, Surrey

16 June 2015

"I just had my first automatic driving lesson with Andy Kirby on the 15th of June 2015. I had not attempted driving lessons since I was 17 and I am now 35! I found manual driving so stressful and lacked confidence that it became so traumatic that I gave up driving and I have not driven again until this very day. Andy was so understanding, supportive and hilarious and it was a real joy to learn from such an experienced professional. Andy had me fully driving within my first lesson, up hills, right and left turns, stopping, junctions, roundabouts and even overtaking!"

"I never dreamed that I could accomplish this so quickly and simply cant wait for my next lesson. Andy picked up on my nerves and then reassured me and challenged me in just the right way. If had the availability I would drive with him ever day!"

She is mad, if you hurt her car she will kill you and she talks nonsense most of the time but she is a fabulous instructor, always on time and pushing you to do your best and I would recommend her to everybody.

Before Andy, I had 2 other instructors who were not very polite and they always made me loose confidence because of the comments they made about my driving.

My instructor Sue, was always punctual and was always able to work around my busy schedule and provide me with the highest level of teaching.

Karim"Thank you so much Umut for teaching me how to drive. I passed first time today because of him and I can honestly say he's an amazing instructor who is patient and makes me laugh every time. I didn't have any practice of my own. All my practice was with Umut so if you're looking for an instructor who won't waste any time pulled up on the side but instead an instructor who teaches you how to drive on the road from day one Umut is the one you want (: Many thanks."

Karim Saddedine, South London

10 April 2015

Hannah"Without having a car to practice on at home, I can confidently say that all the driving skills that I learnt, enabling me to pass my test came from Kim. She was a great driving instructor and tried to make driving fun! Her lessons were detailed and were often aided with pictures to help make the rules of junctions clearer. She also helped by constantly using phrases such as 'No gas! No go' and 'creep and peep' which I am sure I will find myself saying when I drive my own car. Kim was punctual, really easy to get along with and was also very flexible with timings of lessons to work around my school timetable. Overall I am really happy with my experience with Elite Driving School and would recommend it to any new driver."

"I passed first time with Garry C. He's a wonderful teacher, patient, caring, funny and he really wants you to do well! He knows when you're ready to take your test and invests a lot of time in you. He's so hard working but always tries to accommodate erratic times and days when you're free, despite always being fully booked! I'm looking forward to taking my Pass Plus with him and developing my driving skills even further. He always reminds you if you're picking up bad habits so ultimately, before you know it you're a confident and proficient driver! I unfortunately had breaks in my lessons one gap of three months and another of four - but Garry was keen to start again and made the time so I could progress quickly once I started again. Garry C is a wonderful instructor and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. He is an asset to Elite Driving School."

Katherine Morgan, Mitcham, Surrey

I passed my test the first time :)."

Laura"I booked some lessons with Adrienne from Elite driving school after asking for recommendations of good driving instructors locally, Adrienne came highly recommended and I can now see why. I was quite nervous at the beginning of my driving lessons but Adrienne was very patient and started me off slowly and my confidence quickly grew. Adrienne is a perfectionist and very thorough and took the time to ensure that I understood everything and could handle any tricky situation I might come across. I passed both my theory and practical tests first time and this was definitely thanks to Adrienne. I would definitely recommend her."

"I have used 4 different driving schools over the years and had as many instructors. Garry at Elite not only helped me finally pass but went about it with all the good humour, patience, kindness and clear explanation that I needed to build my confidence. Although I have been learning for a long time, he taught me new approaches and tricks that had never occurred to me and has really improved my driving. I have since recommended him to others who also passed with him, and will be going with him for Pass Plus. The best experience of driving lessons I have ever had."

I came across Sue and her pupils reviews. I chose her and well, I was not disappointed! She is so professional, understanding and someone you know you can rely on. Always on time and accommodating when needed. Very easy going and knowledgable, I could not wish for anyone better. I passed first time trying. Thank you Sue :)."

Emma Elson, Redhill, Surrey

04 March 2015

"I'm brand new to driving and had my first lesson with Jenny recently. She's been incredibly patient and lovely while I work on my clutch control! It makes such a difference to have someone calm and patient at the helm when you're really nervous and getting to grips with something totally unfamiliar. Thanks Jenny, I promise to do my utmost to keep your alloys impeccable!"

Jennifer Carey, Redhill, Surrey

"I took lessons with Matt from Elite after disappointing experiences with two other schools. I found Matt's enthusiasm and knowledge really pushed me to progress much more quickly than with my previous instructors, and I passed my test first time which was something I never dreamed would happen! Thank you Matt for your fantastic tuition!"

Carly Johnstone, Mitcham, Surrey

03 March 2015

"Thank you to Chris Lisney from teaching me to drive literally from scratch. Chris is a fantastic instructor. Very patient, supportive, reliable and generally kind person. Chris is the one and only instructor you will need throughout your journey to become a great driver! When I decided that I need to learn how to drive I was petrified, hearing stories about rubbish instructors who are letting pupils down, shouting at them, wasting their time and money. But I was very lucky to find Chris who was recommended to me by one of his previous learners. I was so scared to even sit in the car as I haven’t had a clue where clutch or break was. I never looked forward to my lessons, had many sleepless nights full of nightmares and didn’t really believe in myself that I will ever be able to drive… but as soon as I sat in the car, the bad feeling was gone and Chris carefully guided me through my learning journey. Chris is very experienced to deal with every possible type of learner and that makes him unique. His knowledge is great and he really is an amazing instructor. Thanks Elite Driving school and huge thank you to Chris."

Ivana Hawkins, Thornton Heath, Surrey

Ife"My instructor Sue is just the best. I couldn't have done it without her. She encouraged me not give up after I failed my first test and to continue to keep my head up. Her instructing is excellent and she made me feel absolutely comfortable. Sue is very genuine and got to know me and really helped me get to where I needed to be to pass my test. I would highly recommend Sue without hesitation and would really like to use this opportunity to say a humongous 'Thank you' to her for seeing me through. I am 100% happy and pleased with passing my test. "

Ife Azih, Whyteleafe, Surrey

02 March 2015

Lucy"I'd like to thank Ian for his consistent patience throughout the course of my lessons. Having put off learning for a whopping 18yrs due to an intense phobia of ever putting myself behind the wheel, he had his work cut out. But I was amazed how fast he managed to make me feel confident and comfortable, and I'm still pinching myself that I'm a driver. He made the experience incredibly painless, particularly when faced with the challenges of working around childcare arrangements, part time work and baby due dates…. He made it easy. So a huge thank you Elite, and to Ian for getting me that licence and removing and need to drag 2x under 3's on to a bus again! (and a thank you from every local, long suffering bus driver and public transport passenger too. Thanks)."

Lucy Reid, Redhill, Surrey

Charlie"Had a wonderful experience from day one learning to drive with my instructor (Richard) with lots of jokes throughout each lesson creating a great environment and easing the process eventually ending up with me being taught enough to be able to pass first time, would definitely recommend it 10/10. Thank you Richard and elite!"

Charlie Patterson, Addlestone, Surrey

26 February 2015

Sophie"After two bad experiences with other driving schools, I was almost on the verge of giving up learning to drive. Elite and my instructor Sue Garner completely changed that. She was so patient and friendly, and more importantly never once raised her voice or got angry. Instead of being criticised for my mistakes, we ended up laughing at them. Over the course of 5 months Sue managed to turn driving from an entirely negative experience into a positive, fun one for me, and for that I can't thank her enough. Her teaching methods are fantastic, the prices are brilliant for the standard of teaching and she was always on time, never cancelling lessons last minute. I couldn't ask for a better instructor and I'm going to really miss having lessons with her. I passed my test yesterday with only 2 minors! Elite is easily the best driving school around, and I would highly recommend Sue, she is exceptional. Thank you Sue!"

Sophie Lee, Godstone, Surrey

He was reliable, calm and friendly and his instruction was clear and patient, but also challenging in a good way - pushing me to be a better driver. Thanks to Umut, I passed my test first time, but more importantly I feel he's taught me how to be a safe driver."

Yazmin"My experience with Elite has been very positive, from the moment I called to book my first driving lesson through to passing the practical test. My instructor, Karen, is a great teacher and I couldn't have done it without her. Having had 2 previous driving instructors prior to signing up with Elite, I was ecstatic to find a caring and efficient instructor. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to get their driving license and Elite as a company. "

"I just passed my test with Garry C. He was amazing in instilling confidence on the scary roads! Having wasted so much money on a previous instructor I quickly realised after a few lessons that driving can actually be fun.. Well…at least not as scary! Gary is a brilliant instructor, despite his first couple of 'serious' lessons, he quickly warmed up and put the fun into learning. He will teach you techniques that will ace any manoeuvre. Tight parallel parking?.. Pah easy peasy! I think I will still be remembering his wise driving catchphrases for years to come lol!"

The lessons were well structured and we covered the whole driving syllabus effectively and efficiently, which provided me with the ability and confidence to pass the practical test. Umut from the start was a pleasure to be taught by, he has a great attitude and friendly manner. I would recommend Umut to any individual committed to learning how to drive, no matter what their current driving experience is. - Thanks Umut."

Duncan Christian, Redhill, Surrey

31 January 2015

"I've been with another two driving instructors before I started the lesson with Andy, but I never felt comfortable with these two. They always wanted to drive me in straight road, never let me do the manourvers which even my husband could do. Anyway my experience with Andy was very fruitful and knowledgeable, that is why I passed the driving test with my first attempt with less than 30 lessons. I am also proud to say that Andy never been after the money, some way my previous two driving instructors, they were after the money. I was very lucky to have such a dedicated instructor like Andy. Big thank you to you ,Andy from the bottom of my heart"

Bincy Philip, Aldershot, Surrey

McKenzie"Umut wasn't my first driving instructor, but taught me more in my first lesson with him then my previous 10+ lessons with my previous driving instructor. He never made me feel nervous or uneasy, when I was not confident in myself he actually installed confidence in myself and my ability to drive. He's also very easy to get on with, you can have a laugh with him, and he will always push you just enough to better your driving. One of the major points that I respect him for is that he is not a time waster, he will not drag out your lessons just to make money from you. Highly recommended."

With such a choice of driving schools its hard to choose which one but Elite and Richard are great! He even throws in the odd joke and song here and there! Thank you for helping me pass first time, would highly recommend!"

Rio"My Instructor was Garry Commey! If I could thank him enought I seriously would. From start to finish he was so patient and supportive, I was quite scared to drive when I first started but he helped me to build my confidence and quickly get on the road. I started my lessons on 1st September 2014 and I passed yesterday 19th January 2015 with only ONE minor fault. He booked my lessons around my suitable busy schedule due to college and work and I was able to pass in 5 months. I'm only 17 so I'm a young driver also! Garry I thank you so much for being the best driving instructor ever and I also thank Elite too!!!! PICK HIM!"

He pushed me to overcome my fears and in doing so he built my confidence up. I cannot stress enough for anyone out there who is looking for an instructor who is friendly, patient and easy going, I cannot recommend Garry highly enough. Garry also knew exactly when I was ready for my test and had complete faith in me. Thank you so much Garry, you're the best!"

"Garry was an excellent driving instructor. I couldn't recommend him highly enough. I was a very very nervous pupil in the beginning, with no previous driving experience; Garry tailored the lessons to suit my needs, was patient, but always eager for me to put myself out of my comfort zones. All of this led to me passing my test first time in nine months. Thanks so much Garry!"

"My instructor was Kevin. He was amazing teacher and extremely patient. He taught me all the valuable skills that I need to be able to succeed in my test and so that I was able to pass first time. He was very reliable and was extremely flexible to pick me up from college and allow me to drive myself home (6 miles away), this was extremely valuable to me as it prepared me for completing this route independently once I had passed my test."

Sailaja"Sue has been an excellent and reliable instructor and made a huge difference in my learning especially after a bitter experience with my previous instructor from a prominent driving school. She's been very tolerant and there was no single instance of her losing temper for the mistakes I did during the course. She made me feel at ease and worked towards the betterment in every lesson. I was always terrified with roundabouts and reverse around the corners but thanks to her guidance, I could overcome my nervousness. She made me practice them repeatedly until I was perfect and confident. I'm extremely grateful to her and couldn't thank enough for all her service. I strongly recommend elite driving school and Sue to everyone."

Satya"Garry was an excellent instructor for me. He has been calm, patient and comforting me when I get worried and helped me out in gaining confidence with everything throughout my driving lessons tenure with him. A practical person, who understands the person from within and advises the remedy to cure the driving faults. He comes across with well planned, organised lessons and has been sincere, punctual to deliver those lessons. I take this opportunity to THANK Garry to build my driving capability and enabling me to pass my driving test. I would highly recommend him to those who are looking for an instructor in South London.

Charlie"Adrienne is the nicest and best teacher I've ever had - she's completely professional and knows exactly what she's talking about and how to get it across. When I passed the examiner complimented me on the drive and said that she wouldn't expect anything less from from of Adrienne's pupils. They know she's the best too! I will miss our lessons and have learnt so much."

Simon"After being initially nervous to learn to drive at 23 I decided to go with Elite and Sue Garner was my instructor. Sue is a fantastic instructor who immediately put me at ease and was patient with me whenever I made mistakes she would go over them until I grasped it fully. As a result my confidence on the road grew immensely and I believe this was key to having a good understanding with Sue. I would highly recommend Sue to anybody looking to drive as she's a great teacher. If I could give anybody one piece of advice it would be do 2 hours a week consistently as it cements your knowledge and I passed in just over 5 months. Thanks Elite the customer service has been excellent and thanks again Sue I really couldn't have done it without you!"

"Alister's amazing. Friendly, relaxed and completely trustworthy. My son William Telford, enjoyed every lesson. Each lesson lasted the full hour, with William driving 95% of the time or more. His lessons where in the relevant area of our home and test centre. 100% would recommend. Fantastic company, we've been so happy with them. Thank you Elite, especially Allister. I just can't recommend this company enough. My son passed his test today. But I will look back with really good memories of Allister and Williams banter, and general enjoyment of every lesson.. "

I have a had a lesson with another instructor priviously who told me I would need hours and weeks lessons before he would even consider taking my test.

Genuinely wanting to see me succeed and always there for guidance. He was understanding in the specific issues I had and allowed me to learn at my own comfortable pace.

"Garry is a fantastic instructor. He was really good at explaining anywhere I was going wrong and giving me an understanding of what the car was actually doing mechanically that made it all really clear. He was friendly and had a really good balance between having plans for our lessons and allowing me to focus on what I wanted to other times. I would recommend him highly to anyone wanting an instructor in South London. Prices were very reasonable and Elite giving me access to free theory test software was fantastic."

"Garry is a brilliant instructor. I was with another instructor before him, took my test and failed. Starting off with Garry I saw a clear difference between what and how I'd been taught by the previous instructor. I passed my second test with only 2 minor faults, a testament to his competence as a teacher. I'm very pleased that I went with him."

Narendra"I passed my driving test at first attempt thanks to UMUT. He is great at teaching. UMUT is very good at telling you anything that you need to improve on and how to, in a very positive and reassuring manner. It was completely value for money. He used to correct me always whenever I was making mistake. I was very tense on Test day but he assured me that the way I have been driving so far is perfect and just drive in the same way which gave me confidence and I passed the test. He taught me how to be calm and alert while driving, how to do correct manoeuvre, everything. Thank you UMUT without you I wouldn't been able to do that so easily. I highly recommend Umut to everyone as he is the best instructor I've had. Thank you Umut!"

Pola"Sue is an exceptional driving instructor who has helped me through all the ups and downs of learning to drive. She is really calm and collected and will not patronise you for making mistakes; instead her support and encouragement motivated me and I always looked forward to my driving lessons! I was terrified of hill starts and not a big fan of roundabouts, but by the end, I had them mastered. Sue taught me that driving is really fun and filled me with confidence which allowed me to pass my driving test first time! It will really change how much time I will save on my travel, and have an overall beneficial impact on my life. I would definitely recommend Sue to everyone I know, she is an amazing instructor! "

"I really would like to thank Andy Kirby for getting me through my driving test. As a more mature student and not much confidence, he was really understanding, kind and made me feel at ease. Andy is very patient and explains things clearly and in a way that made it easy to understand. I will actually miss having lessons because he has a great personality, sense of humour & we always had a good laugh. I would definitely highly recommend him to family, friends etc."

"I was so lucky to have Chris as my driving instructor. His patience and kindness got me through all of my lessons and I truly enjoyed learning each week. After previous driving instructors with other companies and failed tests knocked my confidence, Chris really enabled me to become confident and able to pass. I was so proud of myself when I passed my test, but couldn't have done it with Chris. My experience with Elite has been fantastic start to finish and I couldn't recommend it more. Anyone who is lucky enough to get Chris as an instructor is really lucky! Thank you!!! K."

I'm already feeling much happier about being back in the driver's seat and look forward to my next refresher lesson!"
