"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."

He had so much of patience even when I made the silliest mistakes. Without Andy I wouldn't have passed the test. Thank you so much Andy and Elite driving school for such a wonderful service."

"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 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 Andy had the availability I would drive with him ever day!"

Yvonne"I would like to thank my instructor Andy Kirby who helped me prepare for my test which I passed yesterday. 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. I almost gave up driving but fortunately, I met Andy via Elite who was very friendly and taught very well. He had confidence in my driving and this helped me regain my confidence on the road. I would recommend him to everyone who is looking for a good instructor. He is very understanding and patient."

"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"

"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."

"When I started learning to drive with Andy I hadn't been behind the wheel of a car since failing my practical test 6 years earlier. I was nervous and inexperienced but his jovial and sympathetic attitude put me totally at ease. He adapted his teaching style to suit me and I am utterly convinced that this is what got me through my practical test first time. I would recommend Andy without reservation."

"Thank you very much for the great lessons. I learned a lot from you and I wouldn't have passed the tough UK practical test without your coaching. I genuinely enjoyed the sessions too. You have made it such a great experience for me with your wonderful humour and calm composure. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who wants to pass the test as well as have a good experience learning. Wishing you all the happiness in the world and thank you once again. I hope these few sentences will reflect how grateful I am. Take care."

"Andy is a very experienced instructor and gives out lots of information, so you will never be in the dark about anything driving related. He likes to talk around the subject as well, giving the driving lessons an informal environment. Andy is always in control and has good judgement, so he can always be counted on for an opinion or evaluation. This also has the effect of creating an air of confidence."

"Andy was incredibly clear , patient and encouraging throughout my driving lessons . He took on board my anxieties and worked at a pace that suited me. During my course of lessons Andy always took time to explain everything necessary in great detail, referring to why and how it may come up in a driving test." "Andy's friendly nature made each driving lesson relaxed and enjoyable. His extensive driving experience, and teaching skills ensured that I was ready for my test when the time came. I was delighted to pass first time, with only 1 minor fault."

"I had failed my driving test twice and had lost quite a bit of confidence in passing. I stopped taking lessons and put off learning to drive for a few years. Eventually I decided to take up driving again and Andy put at ease straight away. After the first couple of lessons I had much more confidence in my abilities and was enjoying driving. After almost ten years away from driving I passed my test first time with Andy as my instructor."
