I became an Approved Driving Instructor after years of working for a bank in the city.
I enjoy being on the road and meeting new people after decades of commuting up to London (mainly spent waiting for delayed London Bridge trains!) and being stuck behind a desk number crunching.
The best part of the job is watching pupils progress and gain confidence throughout the course of the lessons, and seeing the satisfaction in the face of the pupil as they are jumping around the test centre car park after they've passed, knowing that I helped them to achieve their goal, enjoying their new life on four wheels.
I'm married with an adult son who works in the sports industry.

Not only was I able to pass my driving test first time but the ability to drive by my self now without any fear is truly what has made the lessons valuable and worth every penny. Thank you so much Sue."

"I finally passed my test - a huge thank you to Sue Garner! Over the past year I had completed a crash course with previous driving instructors and never passed my test after 5 tries… unfortunately none of them seemed to care about my learning and got me into bad habits. However I was then recommended by a friend who had passed their test with Sue Garner. She helped me out and took me under her wing and within one lesson I was learning things that I hadn’t learnt before from previous instructors. She is very knowledgeable and is very patient through out all my lessons. Honestly I can’t appreciate Sue enough, I have improved so much since learning with her and she is so good at what she does. She cares about her students so much and motivated me to not give up and I finally passed my test!"

"A great quality of teaching makes every penny worth it. I chose to have Sue as my driving instructor after a very strong recommendation from my older sister who passed her test first time. She is a lovely driving instructor who takes special care to make her students feel comfortable when driving, despite any beginners anxiety. Sue works to cater everyones learning styles, through visual images (on her iPad ) or by being more than happy to stop over and go through any mistakes / questions you may have. I ALSO passed my test first time today with 1 minor and I owe it all to Sue. I’m over the moon. I can’t wait to have my brother start his driving lessons with her in the near future. Her texts 24 hours in advance of a lesson are also very handy if you have a bad memory like me! Thankyou Sue! I will miss our chats and good laughs."

"Sue Gardener proved to be a calm, thorough and reassuring instructor when I was able to pass my test with my first attempt. I hear a lot about overly-strict or harsh instructors teaching those around me. However, with Sue, it was hard to pick any imperfections with her teaching. Being a very organised and fair instructor, it was simple to organise any lessons with her (especially with her 24 hr notice text to remind you of your lesson). After passing me and my brother, I would highly recommend Sue to any aspiring driver needing a safe and comfortable pathway to passing due to her being such an easy person to get on well with."

"I started my driving lesson with Sue Garner, she is a brilliant driving instructor, I got a confidence to drive a car with Sue’s advices. She is super welcoming and assisted me in areas where I wasn’t confident with. Due to some personal reason I wanted to change from manual to automatic where Sue introduced me with Ian Sedgwick, I am thankful that he was able to provide his time during this pandemic and short notice. He’s amazing personality so calm and always telling you things deeply for better understanding. Ian taught me some techniques which certainly helpful in final exam and I have passed the test recently. Both Ian and Sue are super friendly and I would surely recommend Elite driving schools for new learners."

"I am extremely grateful to my driving instructor Sue at Elite, I had a couple of driving instructors prior to Sue but they couldn’t compare at all, she was very supportive and accommodating during my learning process. Sue was always so patient and made sure that we went through the test routes and that I was confident with them. She is so friendly and our chats along the way put me at ease. I had a few problems with my nerves but Sue helped me get through this and built up my confidence when driving and I finally got my pass!! I couldn’t recommend Sue enough! Thank youu!"

"I started taking driving lessons with Sue after recieving many recomendations from family members and friends who had passed their test. She is easy to talk to, helped me gain confidence in my driving and the best instructor I could have asked for. My test was cancelled in May due to Covid then again in september - Sue stayed in touch with me and helped me throughout. I would definately recommend!"

"Sue made me feel very comfortable and relaxed in the car. She is calm and easy to talk too. I was meant to take my test in March that was then postponed 3 times during COVID and had to change my test centre to be able to do it when allowed to. Sue stayed in touch during the whole of COVID and passing over any updates. She also helped me learn a different test area and gave me the confidence So that I could achieve it, she was as happy as I was when I passed. Sue is a lovely person and I would happily recommend."

"Throughout my learning experience, my instructor (Sue) continued to show patience in directing me on areas where I did well and others where my driving was potentially hazardous. Sue was able to help me into a first time pass on my test, which is amazing!"

"Elite driving school was really great in helping me to pass my theory test and driving test first time round. The school gives you a free app to prepare you for everything you need for theory test as well as having really good structured lessons. My driving instructor was Sue who was really friendly and calmed my nerves from the minute I got into the car! Would highly recommend having Sue as well as driving with the school."

"Really great driving school! I had to change instructors part way through and Sue was able to fit me in. She got me through my theory and practical test first time which was brilliant. The app for theory that Elite give you access too was great as it enabled me to practice identical questions to the actual thing. My lessons ensured my driving was ready for both test standards as well as driving generally in life. Would defiantly recommend Elite and Sue as I had a great experience with both!"
