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 very proud of my high pass rate, reviews and reputation that I have built up over the years.

"Absolutely brilliant driving instructor. Thank you Adrienne, not only did you have the patience of a saint, you taught my daughter to drive safely and properly.

Judy Ripley, Frimley, Surrey
"I can’t thank Adrienne enough. My son is over the moon with passing first time. But as a mum we worry about their safety out on their own driving.

Chloe Grey, Camberley, Surrey
"As soon as I became 17, I couldn’t wait to start driving lessons and with Covid restrictions finally easing, it wasnt easy to find an instructor that was immediately available. I waited for Adrienne as I’d heard good things and I’m so glad I did. She eased my fear and anxieties immediately, she was patient, flexible and would often collect and drop me off to college. She made the lessons fun but was firm when required and didn’t judge my errors. She is really knowledgeable and helped enormously with both my theory and eventually my practical test. I passed first time just 6 months later and feel I’m a confident driver which is due to her exemplary tuition. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks Adi"

"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! Thankyou for everything Adrienne ?? I am over the moon!"

The lessons are suitable lengths and the flexibility is great when it comes to scheduling lessons around college and work.

"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. "

"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. "

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."
