Biography - Moh Ali driving instructor
I give lessons to learner drivers, as well as those who wish to improve their skills and experience beyond the driving test, including motorway and refresher lessons. I have lived in the Croydon area for many years, so have a good knowledge of the local areas, including New Addington, Selsdon, Sanderstead, West Wickham, Beckenham, and central Croydon.
Learning to drive is a very personal experience, so it is important that you have a good working relationship with your instructor. I aim to provide a relaxed and friendly environment with, of course, a high standard of training and professionalism. I aim to help my students to pass the driving test with confidence, and also give them the skills to enjoy safe driving for life.
I am passionate about road safety, and enjoy meeting new people and helping them achieve their driving goals. I make lessons fun and interesting, and provide plenty of opportunities for questions. All lessons and routes I cover are individually tailored, to assist my pupils in building their confidence in all aspects of their driving.

Hieu Le, Croydon, Surrey
"I've got a drive license long time ago and I only drove for 3 months before moving to London where I stopped driving for 3 years. I got confused by the complex roundabouts in London and gradually lost my confidence in driving. I called Elite Driving School to explain my situation; the receptionist really understood my case and put me on a 5-hour refresher course. I had Moh Ali as my instructor, he is very friendly, knowledge and calm which is possibly what I needed most because I tend to be nervous if someone shouts at my mistake and will soon make another (I had a bad instructor before). Moh took me through the roundabouts from simple to complex, went through with me how I had done (after we came to stop at some place), and gradually increased the difficulty until I felt comfortable. I highly recommend Moh Ali as well as Elite Driving School."
26 May 2019
Fai Jones, Coulsdon, Surrey

16 April 2019
Shamila Fernando, Croydon, Surrey
"I had the brilliant Mr. Mo as my driving instructor. Before I started driving lessons, I was nervous and clueless about what to expect. He was kind and helpful as a driving instructor and as a result I passed my theory and practical test without a fuss. I would not have been able to pass either with anyone else. I get anxious before knowing that I am going to be tested and he really assured me that everything would be fine and that I was ready. I just wanted to say how fantastic instructor he is and I would definitely recommend him to absolutely anyone."

Neha Sharma, Kenley, Surrey
"I would highly recommend Elite and my instructor Moh. He built my confidence back which I had completely lost with my first driving instructor. He brings the best out of you by motivating and appreciating you for all the correct things you do during your lessons. He is never negative and even if you make a mistake he explains it in a very calm way that it sounds positive and you always learn from them and try not to repeat the same errors again. He is very professional in terms of being punctual, his techniques and ways of making you learn and remember things and always making the other person feel good about their drive during the lessons. Thanks Moh for helping me out to drive properly and with confidence."

Thisari Tennakoon, Godstone, Surrey
"I had my driving lessons with Mo, who is an excellent driving instructor. I used to had many lessons with other instructors but only Mo could establish confidence in me. I am greatly appreciated the service that he provided for me. I drove with ease and without fear. He guided me with a very gentle manner. I had my test in West Wickham and got passed today, the manoeuvre techniques are the BEST. What more could I say about Mo, he is an asset to Elite Driving school. Thank you very much Mo for helping me to achieve the target with few lessons. Wish you all the best Thisari Tennakoon."

Tomi Ogunlolu, Thornton Heath. Surrey
"Moh at Elite Driving School was a great help in helping me and guiding me to pass my test. After taking numerous lessons with a previous driving company in 2017, I was getting no where, then I found Elite driving school and was assigned my instructor Moh who first assessed my driving to begin with. He made sure we went at my own pace,each lesson was not like the last, Moh gave constructive criticism and also made sure I was confident in my driving by encouraging me massively when I doubted myself and my driving."
"Anyone looking for a driving school and a great instructor, visit Elite driving school. They have extremely great driving instructors who cater to your individual driving ability and needs."

"I had been terrified of driving and took lessons on and off (mostly off) for years until I started lessons with Mo (who went automatic-) then Gary C. I had an excellent service from both instructors. I was the most nervous of drivers and both instructors were incredibly patient and calm. Gary taught me well and made sure I understood how to be a safe driver. Lessons were fun, he even managed to make them stress free and I have come to enjoy driving and found my confidence. I could not recommend ELITE enough. Very professional service, always punctual and a great introduction to a life long skill. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Gary and Mo and the ELITE team."

"Moh is a fantastic driving instructor! Prior to moving back to London, I had not taken lessons in over 2 years. Moh really helped me to iron out bad habits that I had picked up and gave me a much needed confidence boost. Overall, his guidance and calm yet professional teaching style really made me feel at ease and in turn has me a more relaxed confident driver. Moh has always been accommodating and flexible in terms of lessons-really can not fault him. I passed today with 3 minors and really could not have done so without his teaching and support- so thanks again!"

"Taking driving lessons with Elite was a right decision. My instructor Moh was very calm during my whole learning process he turned me from beginner driver to a good driver in absolutely no time. His teaching techniques are quite easy to grasp and he explains all the test aspects very well throughout. He will keep reminding you each and every mistake you make during driving so that you memorise it and slowly tend to not repeat it. I passed with only 4 minor mistakes. All credit goes to MOH. "

Yunus Dutlu, Kenley, Surrey
I moved to elite from Kenley driving school as was not happy with them they just seemed interested in my money. With Elite I had Moh as my instructor. Straight away he made me feel relaxed and at ease. I highly recommend him he is a excellent instructor. I passed my test first time. Definitely recommend Moh.
10 April 2017
Jeremy Y, South Croydon, Surrey
Moh is a great instructor. He has a clear and patient style, which helped me become confident in my driving very quickly, and took great care to tailor his teaching to my needs. I never felt that we spent too long on anything, and could always practice more with any areas I wasn't comfortable with until I mastered them. Moh is also very good at teaching road craft, so I'd learn to be a good driver, not just to pass my test. Learning to drive with Moh was a fun experience! Elite were also extremely helpful in organising an instructor. I had to change instructors after a few lessons due to my original instructor having unexpected personal circumstances, just one of those things, and when I called Elite to follow this up they were very quick to reallocate another instructor, which minimised any disruption to my learning.

More of Moh's Testimonials
"Have to say a huge thank you to Moh for my refresher lessons. I had massively lost my confidence with driving and he was so calm and encouraging and a real credit to the company. Within 3 lessons, I was back on the main roads in Croydon and drove on the M25 for the first time! Highly recommend to anyone in the Croydon area, both learners and license-holders in need of extra guidance."
Molly Binne, Croydon, Surrey - 01 February 2017
"My time working with Moh has been very pleasant. He is very patient instructor, using different methods to get the message, I went from an eager driver to patient experienced driver. When working with Moh I felt he did target my weaknesses directly, for instance when I failed on a task, we would work on the problem and by the next time my test results would show the improvement. I felt as Moh is a down to earth person who is easy to work with and as he is my first and only instructor, he is the reason I passed the test and I would recommend him to anyone."
Michael Bankole, Croydon, Surrey - 13 February 2017
"I could not have asked for more from a driving school. Flexible times of lessons, lessons were fun, and I passed first time! Thanks so much Moh, I'll deffinitely be sending my friends your way."
Chris Molone, Croydon, Surrey - 15 February 2017
"I passed my driving test few years ago and I did not have the confidence to get back on the road. Thanks to Mo, I am now able to drive with no hesitation. I would definitely recommend Mo to anyone who wants to drive correctly. He is professional, punctual and able to teach you technical driving skills in a simplified way. Great teacher"
