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.

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!"

Andy York, Crawley, West Sussex

"After trying lessons with another couple of schools and not getting anywhere fast I was well impressed from my first lesson with Furkan. He doesn't waste time getting on with things, but pulled me up on things that I wasn't doing right. And he's a nice bloke. I passed first time!"

Katie Shaw, Crawley, West Sussex

"I has Furkan as my instructor, and I'm so pleased that I did. He was so patient with me, and explained everything clearly and in a way that helped me to become confident in my ability. He was always on time, flexible with fitting in lessons around my work, and most importantly got me through my test on the first go! Thanks so much, I'll be recommending FUrkan to anyone that wants to learn!"
