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.

Libby passed her test at Crawley after taking lessons from driving lessons with instructor Lee "I recently passed my test with Lee, I would recommend him to anyone. He was a brilliant teacher, always patient and encouraging. If I didn’t understand something or couldn’t do it we would practise until I was happy with it. Overall amazing experience!"
