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.

Chris' Testimonials

Brian Hick, South Croydon, Surrey

"My youngest daughter had Chris Linsey as her instructor. The same instructor my eldest daughter had nearly four years ago. My 17 year old daughter passed her driving test this morning with only two minors. All lessons were over a three month period, about the same as my eldest. Chris was BRILLIANT ! From never being in the driving seat of a car, to three months later passing her test ! Very calm instructor with a good sense of humour I have been told. Never got angry or grabbing the steering wheel, both my girls are very happy with the way Chris taught them. I would personally like to thank Chris also, but he had another lesson he had to get to and did not want to be late. That says everything, never late and gives ALL his students 100% of his time while teaching. I am a Ex Advanced Police Traffic Officer, and a member of the IAM, so know quite a bit about driving. I would recommend Chris to ANYONE. A HUGE Thank You."

Elaine S, Croydon, Surrey

"I’ve recently passed my driving test after lessons with Chris Lisney. He was such a great instructor. Calm, explained everything (rules of the road, how to manage the car, the test etc) really well and was very good at putting nerves at rest. I didn’t need loads of lessons as I was able to pick up the skills quickly when he was teaching but its still a long time in the car - he was good fun which made the lessons more enjoyable. I’d recommend him in a heartbeat."

Janet Fiderio, South Croydon, Surrey

"All 3 of my kids have passed first time with Chris Lisney. Lovely, laid back instructor with a calm approach. Thanks so much Chris, I shall recommend you to anyone who asks.
Ellie is looking forward to having a motorway lesson soon."

26 January 2019

Danny Currie, South Croydon, Surrey

"I was a lapsed learner, having failed my test a few years ago, and had recently had a bad experience with an instructor in my area, so it is fair to say my confidence was pretty low by the time I met Chris. However, from the very first lesson, Chris really helped to build my confidence and helped me to see that driving really isn't all that difficult. I passed my test with only 3 minor faults."

"The more I drove with Chris, the more confident I felt, and I really responded well to his very calm and constructive style. My lessons were packed with actionable feedback and I felt like I was learning to be a safe and competent driver, rather than cramming for a one-off test with lots of irrelevant jargon and procedures."

"In a lesson with Chris, you can expect a calm and patient instructor, very clear and simple instructions and examples, and lots of time spent on the road dealing with real-world situations in a safe, confidence-building way."

"I really can't recommend Chris highly enough."

Sarah Lawless, Purley, Surrey

Sarah passed after taking lessons in Croydon with Chris"I've just passed my test after being taught by Chris! After a very bad experience with a previous driving school, I was a very nervous driver, lacking self confidence. I developed in leaps and bounds as soon as I started learning with Chris, surprising myself with every lesson in how much I was able to do. I'm very grateful for Chris' patience and clear teaching style!"

Jack Ritchie, Upper Norwood, London

"I cannot recommend Chris as an instructor. I passed my driving test yesterday due to having full confidence that he had instilled in me over our course of lessons. He was incredibly patient with me and my many questions. If you are looking for an instructor then Chris is who you should go with."

Rebecca Saxton, Orpington, Kent

"Looking for a driving instructor? Then look no further… there's no one better than Chris Lisney! As a learner driver you are going to make mistakes. It is inevitable. However, with Chris's patience and reassurance your confidence will grow with every lesson. It is clear that Chris is passionate about his job and wants the best out of his students. He takes care in explaining things in a way that will make you feel comfortable and at ease. His positive nature means that nothing is ever too difficult when learning to drive, after all you're still a learner. What I can assure you that is by sticking with Chris you will get the result you deserve!"

Jennifer Wooster, West Wickham, Bromley

"I had been learning to drive with a different instructor. When I failed my first test and needed to rebook quickly, my instructor was away. I was recommended Chris Lisney by a friend whose two very different teenagers had both loved him. I was told "He's unflappable, totally calm and steady, he'll fill you with confidence." I got in contact with him 2 weeks ago. This afternoon I passed my test with only 3 driving errors."
"I must stress that the odds were stacked against me: I had lost my confidence, I'd become used to another model of car, I still had gaps in my knowledge and I'm an incredibly anxious person. Chris is everything I was told he is; the embodiment of calm. He makes every aspect of driving achievable. Nothing ambiguous or ephemeral about his approach- just foolproof systematic techniques and crystal clear, concise guidance. I've not only passed my test but I will now be a safer and more confident driver for my short time with Chris. He's a master at what he does and a thoroughly lovely man; I can't recommend him highly enough."

Elle Webb, Orpington, Kent

"CHOOSE CHRIS LISNEY AS YOUR DRIVING INSTRUCTOR!!!!
As a learner you are going to be nervous and you’re going to make a lot of mistakes. That’s why I recommend Chris as he makes sure every lessons is targeting your weak spots and helps you build up your confidence. He’s an extremely nice person who makes every lesson relaxed and fun. You will find your driving skills expanding every lesson and at a rapid rate. SO CHOOSE CHRIS LISNEY AS YOUR INSTRUCTOR!"

Makeda Bennett, Kenley, Surrey

"I passed my test a couple days ago and had Chris as my instructor and he was absolutely amazing! Fully believed in me, worked on both my strengths and weaknesses, he was really patient and explained things really clearly. Took the time to really make sure I felt confident on the road. Would definitely recommend him as an instructor and Elite as a driving school."

Yasmin Basith, Purley, Croydon

"My instructor was Chris and he was absolutely amazing. Always on time, but most importantly he was always patient and really believed in me. He was born to be a teacher. Couldn’t ask for a better instructor. I passed with only 3 minors and it’s all down to him!"

8 June 2018

Sophie Marshall, Croydon, Surrey

"I was extremely pleased with the service I received from Elite. My instructor, Chris Lisney, was the best instructor I could ask for! His patient and calm attitude made me feel very comfortable throughout my experience, allowing me to feel increasingly confident! I could not thank him enough for all of the time and effort he put in to helping me pass my test."

24 May 2018

Emilia Parmar, Keston, Bromley

"Chris has been an amazing instructor to me. We completed a course of driving lessons over 4 months, which allowed me to pass my practical test with flying colours. We saw each other on a regular basis and he always reassured me throughout this time which gained me more confidence as an individual and on the road. I enjoyed our driving lessons together throughout this time and always felt as though I looked forward to them. His calm nature was exactly what you need when learning to drive, as it settles you throughout your first experiences on the road. I recommend Chris to anyone who is looking to pass quickly as without him I wouldn't be in this position today."

15 May 2018

Emma Winton, Purley, Surrey

"Chris was always on time, often early and very flexible with lesson times, slightly busier on weekends but he was able to fit me in! I got a late booking on my driving test only 3 days before on a Saturday and he was able to accommodate it! With my previous instructor this would have been near to impossible due to their rigid inconvenient scheduling process."

"He was very calm and understanding, even when I’d had a long day and making mistakes. He is friendly and conversational. I have already recommended him to a family member who’s finding his teaching great too!"

27 February 2018

Violetta Dyachenko, Orpington, Surrey

"I’ve passed my theory test straight after my birthday and booked my practical on the same day for 14th December!!! I had a month to learn how to drive, I was really nervous but my amazing instructor Chris helped me so much, always arriving on time and explaining things properly!!! I was really happy at the end of it all as I passed 1st time with 3 minors! Thank you so much will be recommending."

15 December 2017

Katherine Hopgood, Purley, Surrey

"I would like to say a huge thank you to my instructor Chris Lisney who was very patient with me while I was learning! With his help, I managed to pass my test first time, and he really helped me to become a confident driver. He's very good at pushing you just the right amount, to make sure you're progressing, but without making you too nervous. Chris was always on time, and often a few minutes early. Would highly recommend him to anybody looking for an instructor!"

17 September 2017

Brenda Patel, Thornton Heath, Surrey

Peter Elis, Purley, Surrey

"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. You have been very patient with me and I would recommend that anyone who is looking for someone who genuinely cares and is looking for a great teacher to choose Chris."

Jesus Boyele, Thornton Heath, Surrey

06 December 2016

"Many thanks to my Elite driving instructor Chris who helped me pass my practical driving test today with only 3 minors. Chris is an exceptional instructor, he covers most areas in the South East of London and I'd recommend him as a driving instructor to anyone who is looking to learn how to drive."

Kennith J Walugembe, London

06 October 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 London

29 July 2016

"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

13 June 2016

"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."

Sophie King, Beckenham, London

10 June 2016

"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 !"

Brian Hickman, South Croydon, Surrey

22 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."

Leanne Burrett, Croydon, Surrey

15 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."

19 February 2016

"I worked with Chris Lisney for under a month, he is very patient and honest he is a very good and experienced instructor the few lessons I had with him made me very confident and due to this I didn't waste no time in booking my driving test and passed first time!! Thank you Chris."

Jermaine Nelson, Croydon, Surrey

10 October 2015

"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). "

Jade Pearce, Croydon, Surrey

21 September 2015

"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!"

Yasir, Coulsdon, Surrey

11 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

02 March 2015

"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."

Kelly Davis, Westerham, Surrey

21 November 2014

"I recently passed my driving test first time thanks to Chris. I started learning with him after I'd had a bad experience of learning to drive with another driving school. His approach was completely different, and the fact he stayed so calm throughout the process of learning to drive really helped put me at ease. Although he allowed me to learn in my own time, he also made sure that lessons remained challenging so I was still improving. Chris was very reassuring and offered lots of practical advice throughout which really helped me gain confidence with driving. I had a great experience of learning to drive and would highly recommend him."

Claire Moody, Croydon, Surrey

29 June 2014

"Chris Lisney has been an excellent instructor who guided me exceptionally well to pass my test in 1st attempt. I switched from a different driving school as I wasn't very happy with my previous instructor, but Chis helped me to gain my confidence back, his vast experience and sound techniques helped me feel at ease and improve rapidly in all areas. I would highly recommend him."

Shashank S, Croydon, Surrey

28 June 2014

"I had lessons with Chris in Sidcup, after changing from a different school. The difference it made was amazing, Chris' calm and friendly attitude put me at ease and helped build my confidence back. I have now passed first time and want to send a big thank you, as it's one thing being good at driving, but another being a good teacher, and you'll certainly get your moneys worth having lessons with Chris. His instructions and teaching methods were very clear and always given in a friendly manner, very helpful when you are a nervous first time driver! I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to drive, and enjoy the process too."

Marte Haug, Sidcup, South East London

26 June 2014

"I started with Elite Driving school as of January 2014 after switching from another driving school in which I had a bad experience with. As of last week I passed my practical test 1st time round with Chris Lisney as my instructor. Chris' calm and collected approach during the lessons really helped me to get my confidence back whilst driving and I give him all the credit in regards to me passing my test! :) Also, the constant reassurance and advice Chris gave me was really helpful. I would say, if your looking for a friendly, professional, experienced instructor, Chris is the man for you! Would definitely recommend Elite driving school and Chris to any learner drivers. Thanks again Chris!"

Bria Esnard, Thornton Heath, Surrey

29 January 2013

"I just passed my test first time thanks to Chris Lisney from Elite Driving!! I am so happy to have passed- and would really recommend Elite for a professional service, the car (ford fiesta) is really nice to drive and is a good size. Like most people starting to learn to drive, thoughts of taking the test is a daunting experience at first but thanks to Chris, I was put as ease and worked through all the skills (and confidence)needed for the day, it was always the target! I really thought at some points I wouldn't manage to do it but Chris explains things in a really helpful way and is understanding and flexible with lessons, all of which helped build my confidence in myself and driving. All in all I learnt from March to October 2012(about 25 lessons) and passed my test first time! The introductory lessons and block bookings were also helpful financially so take advantage of that! Thanks so much Chris!!"

Kerry Wickens, Shirley, Surrey

"Passing your test first time is always difficult but it was made very easy for me by Chris Lisney. He is the best driving instructor and I will recommend him to everyone who wants to pass their driving test asap. Thanks Chris."

Syed Fuaad, Thornton Heath, Surrey

"Just a big thank you to Elite and in particular Chris Lisney for helping me pass my test in October 2011. Chris was very calm, considered and installed a great deal of confidence in me which I think I previously lacked, without his guidance and teaching methods I doubt I would have passed first time. I have recommended him and Elite to many friends and colleagues of mine. Many thanks Chris and Elite!"

James Farmiloe, Croydon, Surrey

"After I had a lesson with some other driving school, I felt bad that because the person was so rude and discouraging. I decided to stop that and chose elite to check my luck here. Fortunately, its very pleasant experience with them and the instructor 'Chris Lisney' was so supportive with smile always. Due to him and his right guidance, I became confident on driving and got certified in first attempt it self. I am sure if it is not Chris, it would have been a tough situation for me. Thank you Chris for your right guidance and confidence. Thanks Elite for giving me a very good instructor. I definetly recommend Elite and particularly Chris to anyone."

Srinivasa Chakravarthy Kandru, Croydon, Surrey

"I had a fantastic experience with Elite. The driving instructor Chris Lisney was absolutely fantastic, very patient, professional and a great teacher. Strongly recommend."
