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.


Furkan's Testimonials

Alina Khalil, Crawley, West Sussex

FA Alina 211811"Elite was the 3rd driving school I've used after trying others and never really progressing. After my 1st lesson with Furkan I knew that I didn't need to find anyone else. He was professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to help me pass, which I did 1st time. Furkan was on time and very accommodating to my limited availability due to childcare. I finished each lesson confident that I'd always learnt new things and that I'd used the time productively. He built my confidence which at times must've been difficult due to being a very nervous driver. Overall my experience with Elite was 5 star and I'd recommend them to anyone wanting to learn to drive. Thank you so much Furkan, you're the best at what you do!"

He is not only teaching you how to pass test, he tells you how to be confident while driving, driving with discipline that will help you to be safe.

Conor Harper, Redhill, Surrey

Conor passed with Furkan"Furkan adapted each lesson to ensure that I got the most out of every hour spent in the car, teaching me how to be a calm and confident driver, something I never thought I would achieve. I highly recommend him as a driving instructor to anyone who wants to enjoy their lessons whilst getting the best tuition. He was flexible with lessons, accommodating my shift work and various pickup locations."

I can honestly say I would not have passed without his guidance and "professionalism."

"Thank you Furkan."

David Hanson, Redhill, Surrey

David passed with Furkan after driving lessons in Crawley"I contacted Elite at short notice for a rearranged test due to COVID. With 2 weeks to go to my test I needed to get hours behind the wheel with a focus on observation and mirror discipline. My test was in Crawley where I hadn't driven much before. Furkan my instructor, identified my weaknesses early on and then drilled down and worked on them with focus. He spent time familiarising me with the test route and certain tricky spots in the area. As a result I was confident and relaxed and passed the test. He also put a lot of effort into making the car COVID secure and putting me at ease - first class experience!"

WI have not driven for 15 years, I lived in London and there was no need for me to drive, I moved to Smallfield and wanted to take my driving back up, I was not confident going back on the road, Thanks to Furkan from Elite I had 2, 2 hour lesson and now on the road again, Furkan was very good and he explained things clearly and he was patient I would definitely recommend Furkan."
