Biography - Adrienne Marlow driving instructor 

I am a mum to two young children & also work for Historic Royal Palaces so I don't have much spare time but when I do I enjoy running, yoga & anything history related.

I trained with Ian and Eddie, the two founders of ELITE back in 2004 when I was just 22 years old, and I became fully qualified in 2005. I am now a grade 5 instructor, and very proud of my high pass rate, reviews and reputation that I have built up over the years.

Biography - Andy Kirby driving instructor 

I have been an approved driving instructor for over 20 years. I have worked for both national and local driving schools, and have experience in many different areas of the industry, including manual and automatic tuition, instructor training, mobility training, and training of military cadets.

I am easy going, tailor every lesson to my pupil's needs and abilities, and strive to make every lesson enjoyable.

I have now focused my business on Automatic driving lessons due to the increasing demand from pupils wanting to learn in an automatic. This seems to be due to the increasing availability and affordability of smaller automatic cars, as well as modern automatics with trip-tronic style gear boxes which have similar control and economy as manual cars, but without the added stress of having to worry about balancing and controlling the clutch pedal.

Biography - Chris Lisney driving instructor 

I am in my mid 40's, married with two daughters, and a former nurse.  Since leaving the care profession in 2009, after training and qualifying with ELITE I have been a full time member of the ELITE driving instructor team, and I love the job!

In that time I have have a long list of satisfied customers who are now the proud owners of a full driving licence, a good number of whom have laid testament to their personal experience through our reviews page.

With me you get a calm, intuitive and most importantly, patient person, who offers fun and pro-active driving lessons.  I believe in tailoring my lessons to each individual pupil and allow every pupil to learn and develop at their own pace.  No grumpy, shouting instructor here!!

One of my previous pupils who was a band member of Damion Marley's band (yes, son of the great Bob Marley!) said after passing his test on the first attempt "Chris, you are the man!"  I'll take that!

If you're in my area and looking for lessons, I look forward to meeting you.

Biography -

Furkan Arshad driving instructor 

My main aim as a driving instructor is to bring my pupils success and safety on the road, in a professional, courteous and fun manner.

I only teach Automatic lessons now due to the ever increasing popularity of automatic cars, and subsequent high demand from customers for lessons. I'm a family man, father of two, and I love meeting new people. I use varying teaching and coaching methods to tailor and adapt each lesson to meet the needs and learning style of the individual, bringing them comprehensive focus and understanding whilst creating safe and professional drivers.

I have always been a car enthusiast, owning many different high performance (and a few low performance!) cars over the years, with a particular passion for VW Golfs. My life before becoming a driving instructor saw me graduating with a degree in Business Marketing, and then working professionally in various roles both in central London and locally. I'm easy to get on with and am used to working and socialising with people of all ages and backgrounds. That's what I love about this job - everyone is different, and every lesson is different to the last.

Jogging, internet browsing, reading, and swimming 

Although I've only been a qualified approved driving instructor since 2011, I am a grade A instructor, and I am also an ORDIT (Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers) trainer.  This allows me to pass on my wealth of knowledge, passion for the job, and experience to those who not only want to learn to drive, but also those who seek to move into this industry and become an ADI. my pass rate is quite impressive, and a large number of my pupils come to me as referrals from passed pupils, which makes the job really rewarding.

I decided to become an ADI because I enjoy meeting and helping new people.  As I also love driving, becoming an ADI seemed the perfect job, and teaching people how to drive safely on our roads fulfils my ideals.

I am also a professional nurse (RMN) with 13 years of experience. With my nursing background and experience, I do believe the everyone is a unique individual, and this has helped me to develop various training styles and method to suit the needs of my pupils, regardless of their levels of experience, skills and abilities.

I encourage my pupils to believe the anyone can fulfil and achieve their potential if they believe in themselves that they can do it, and I will help them to make this happen.

My motto is 'Never say never!'

Biography - Gary Vigee driving instructor 

Before becoming a driving instructor I spent 37 years in the motor trade.  I started this career as an apprentice with Rolls Royce, before moving on to being quality control engineer and test driver for Jaguar, and then a senior service advisor for a Honda garage in West London.  So I suppose you could say that I know my way around a car!

I really love being an instructor, and believe that although learning to drive and the safety that goes with it needs to be taken seriously, it's important to have a laugh and enjoy the time spent behind the wheel.  I am very patient with my pupils and help them to understand what we are are learning, why we are learning it, and how we put that into practice.

I now teach in an automatic car, as there is an increasing demand for automatic lessons as automatics become a more popular choice for driving in London traffic. In addition they are becoming a more affordable and readily available option, not just limited to the higher end of the car market.

Tweenage twins keep me fairly busy when I'm not working!

Watching Formula 1 racing

I have been teaching learners since 1999, and training instructors since 2004.  In that time I have trained hundreds, if not thousands of people to either drive or become driving instructors.  I learned very quickly when I started the job that simply teaching someone does not involve firing a series of instructions.  Instead, it is about building an understanding of knowledge with the pupil, whether that be existing or newly acquired, and then developing a way of transposing that knowledge into ability.  As a result, I use many different teaching styles, and achieve an extremely high pass rate.

Since forming ELITE in 2008 I have striven to not only grow the number of instructors and areas we cover, but also to develop the quality of all our instructors and the services we offer as a whole.  As a result we now have a team of excellent instructors that have all been personally chosen and receive 6 monthly training meetings and ongoing tuition.

In November 2017 I made the switch from manual to automatic tuition, due to the ever increasing demand for automatic instructors. This is due to the popularity and ever increasing affordability of automatic cars.

Biography - Jenny Hutchinson driving instructor 

Animal mad (I have many pets), Photography (though not very good), and a small interest in sports cars (mainly as my partner is building one!)

Before becoming an instructor in 2010 I worked at a school for children with special needs.  Prior to that I've worked in management, sales, and customer service.  

I trained with Ian (one of the owners of ELITE) after a friend who I was training with through one of the larger national driving schools recommended him.  When I qualified as an instructor I intended to do this job part-time around my other job, and went out on my own.  However once I started I realised how much of a buzz I get out of doing it, and I decided to make this my sole career, and joined ELITE so that I had the support I needed to support my business.Since joining ELITE one of the main projects I've been involved in is the Under 17 driving experiences.  These sessions have proved to be hugely successful, and we are further developing these sessions all of the time.

I am a very patient and professional instructor, not one that screams and shouts.  I really can't understand how anyone can think that will help, but pupils regularly tell me this has happened to them before coming to me.  Surely this does more harm than good!  I try not to bog my pupils down with loads of technical information, I prefer to keep it simple.  I also believe that different people learn in different ways, so I like to tailor my lessons according to their needs.  I also believe that people learn better if they enjoy the lessons, so I try to have fun, whilst making sure they understand what is needed to be safe behind the wheel.

I don't only teach people how to pass their test, but that it is a skill for the rest of their lives. I know that sounds corny, but it's so true.  I want my pupils to pass their test, AND be safe drivers on the road.  I have teenage children, and that's what I'd want for them.

A bit about Me
I love to challenge myself, and at the time of writing this I'm learning to sail a Dingy and ride a motorbike, obviously not at the same time! I’ve found that learning new skills at a later stage of my life is quite challenging, and for me it definitely takes a lot longer than when I was younger. It’s also taught me how incredibly important it is to find the right Instructor who’s able to understand how I learn best, and hasn’t expected me to just get it first time. As my learning experiences have been so recent I’ve been able to transfer a lot of my own experience of being in the “passenger seat’ into my own methods of coaching.

I was made redundant in 2012 and decided to make a complete career change to become a driving instructor. I started and completed my training with Ian at Elite. Its one of the best decisions I've ever made; it's such a great feeling seeing my pupils transform from nervous wrecks on their first lesson to jumping around ecstatically with a test pass certificate in their hand!

I am a calm and patient person and aim to make each lesson fun and stress free to prepare you for a safe and confident driving career. As each person learns differently I tailor each lesson to suit your learning style at your pace.

In my spare time I like to run to keep fit, read and watch films. I'm also a volunteer with St John Ambulance and am training to become a community first responder.

I've been driving for well over 40 years, a driving instructor since 2009, and I still love doing both!  I strongly believe that driving should not be stressful, and I aim to get this across to my pupils on their lessons, and make it as relaxed an environment as possible.

Before becoming an Approved Driving Instructor I had several careers involving driving, including being a multi-drop driver and controller for a firm in central London, a private hire driver, and a stretched Limo driver on the Costa Del Sol.  Away from driving I also used to work with horses.

When I'm not working most of my time is taken up by my kids and grandchildren, but I like to unwind in front of the TV catching up on the soaps, and of course Top Gear.  Also I love taking photos (mainly of the family), and spending time on my PC.

Biography - Lee Haydon driving instructor 

Before training with ELITE to become an instructor I had spent my whole working life in retail, working myself through the ranks to managerial position for a major retailer. I'd always had it in my mind to become a driving instructor, following in the footsteps of my dad, who was an instructor for many years right up until he retired.

When I decided to make the career change from store to car, I did so for several reasons. Firstly is my love of all things car related. I love driving, and have always enjoyed long road trips both in the UK and abroad, and pass on that passion to my pupils in their lessons, ensuring driving becomes a pleasurable experience, not a stressful one.

I'm a family man, married with two sons. We as a family are avid fans of Formula 1, and are #TeamLH, and have camped for the race weekend at the Silverstone British Grand Prix every year for many years now.

I have been able to transfer many of the skills I have gained as a father into teaching, including being a good listener, and being empathetic. I also ensure I justify anything I tell my boys, so they understand why they should or shouldn't do something. I understand how important this is when learning to drive. My skills from the retail sector have also come in useful, including colleague training roles, risk and safety management, and diary management. It's great now putting all of those skills into practice to help individuals to gain the life skill of learning to drive safely.

I love my career as a driving instructor, and aim to make each and every lesson bespoke to the needs and learning style of every different pupil I meet, whether a confident driver approaching test standard, a nervous beginner, or anywhere in between.

Biography - Matt Timor driving instructor 

I trained with Eddie and Ian back in 2007 before they set up ELITE Driving School.  I decided to join the team of ELITE instructors at the start of 2015 simply because of their rapidly growing reputation locally as a quality driving school, and their approach to successfully teaching people to become safe drivers for life.

This is exactly the same approach I have with my pupils.  I like to make learning to drive logical rather than just learning through monotonous repetition, and believe it is important to understand what we do, the safey implications of why, and how we do something. Driving should be enjoyable, and so should the learning to drive process.  I aim to make my lessons fun and as stress free as possible, and work with my pupils to help them learn at a pace that suits them.

Before deciding to come back to my career as an ADI, I had an engineering background, and previously I worked for a jet engine manufacturer.  So if you have any aerospace or technical engineering related questions I would be more than happy to have the conversation, not that driving a car will be anywhere near as technical!

Learning to drive is a very personal experience, so it is important that you have a good working relationship with your instructor. I aim to provide a relaxed and friendly environment with, of course, a high standard of training and professionalism. I aim to help my students to pass the driving test with confidence, and also give them the skills to enjoy safe driving for life.

I am passionate about road safety, and enjoy meeting new people and helping them achieve their driving goals. I make lessons fun and interesting, and provide plenty of opportunities for questions. All lessons and routes I cover are individually tailored, to assist my pupils in building their confidence in all aspects of their driving.

I joined ELITE in 2018 after completing my training with them to become an instructor. I feel that I have been well prepared to provide the best possible teaching and coaching to my learners, using the most up-to-date and appropriate methods that are suited to each individual learner. 

I chose to become an instructor after working in recruitment and training within the prison service for many years, as I wanted to redirect my skills into something more challenging and rewarding. I am a very active person with a real passion for sports, especially cricket, and I have three young children that keep me busy outside work. I have a passion for teaching new life skills, and see teaching peolpe to drive as a fantastically rewarding career option to pursue.

I teach in an Automatic car as they have become so popular since the introduction of more Hybrid and electric vehicles in recent years, and are just as economical as manual cars. More people in London are now choosing to drive automatic cars, as you don't need to be constantly pumping the clutch up and down when you are in traffic.

Biography - Paul Stubbington driving instructor

"I have been driving for over 30 years, and have a vast experience of being a road user.  I decided to become a driving instructor as I knew that I could combine skills I have gained in previous vocations to this role, and a good friend who was already an instructor recommended I contact Ian at ELITE, as he trained with him a few years ago."

"My working history has taken me from insurance, to working in graphics for newspapers, and multi-drop couriering around London.  In that time, particularly when working in the newspapers I have trained and mentored countless people, and would say that I have been able to develop my skills in being patient, to have an understanding of individuals training needs, and established a good rapport with all the people I have trained.  My experience in couriering in and around London really developed my awareness of other road users actions, and I know that anticipation is a large part of making a safe driver, not just operating the controls of a vehicle.  I have witnessed far too many collisions that could have been avoided simply through greater awareness."

"I am enthusiastic about, and simply enjoy driving, and I am keen to impart my knowledge and help people become not only good drivers, but safe and courteous ones too."

Biography - Pierluigi Capparella driving instructor 

Hello, my name is Pierluigi, or PG to my friends, as most people find Pierluigi is a bit of a mouthful.
I grew up in Rome, which taught me how NOT to drive, and moved in this country in 1993.

Before becoming a driving instructor I worked in the Airline industry for over 20 years, covering many different operation roles including check-in, ticketing, dispatching and duty manager.

Due to my love of driving and interacting with people, I always wanted to become a driving instructor, and I was eventually able to thanks to the training provided by Ian, a great instructor trainer.

I enjoy training, coaching and sharing experience with my pupils. Teaching a life skill is rewarding to me and seeing my pupils progress through the learning process, and ultimately passing their driving test makes me smile.

Outside of work, I have many different interests. Apart from spending time with my lovely family, I love football, and I'm an FA licensed football coach for Merstham FC.   I also enjoy outdoor running, cycling and I am pretty good with food- as long as it is Italian!   So far as cars are concerned, when I'm not in my training car, I am the proud owner of a vintage 1974 Fiat 500 (or Cinquecento), and I love to ride in it on a sunny Sunday morning.

Biography - Sue Garner driving instructor

Hi I'm Sue,

I became an Approved Driving Instructor after years of working for a bank in the city.

I enjoy being on the road and meeting new people after decades of commuting up to London (mainly spent waiting for delayed London Bridge trains!) and being stuck behind a desk number crunching.

The best part of the job is watching pupils progress and gain confidence throughout the course of the lessons, and seeing the satisfaction in the face of the pupil as they are jumping around the test centre car park after they've passed, knowing that I helped them to achieve their goal, enjoying their new life on four wheels.

I am married with a football mad teenage son, so I spend a lot of my 'spare' time on muddy football pitches.

I have been driving for 20 years, and I have found a lot of joy and satisfaction through the sheer independence of being able to travel wherever I need and whenever I want.

Learning to drive has always been a passion that I wanted to share with others, so they can also experience the thrill of being able to drive themselves. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them on their route to success. 

I am patient and professional, and I treat each of my students individually, ensuring that my pupils gain as much knowledge and confidence as possible during the lesson.

My patience and focus on each and every one of my pupils' driving journeys is the best start in preparing you for a confident driving future.

In my personal life, I am the father of two wonderful teenage daughters. I also love to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle.
