Biography - Sue Garner driving instructor

Hi I'm Sue,

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 am married with a football mad teenage son, so I spend a lot of my 'spare' time on muddy football pitches.

Hannah Togwell, Croydon, Surrey

SG Hannah 200113"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."

Alex Quantick, Reigate, Surrey

Alex passed with Sue"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!"

Lucy Parsons, West Wickham, Kent

Lucy passed at West Wickham after lessons with Sue"I learnt to drive with Sue at Elite Driving School and I can honestly say she is an absolutely brilliant teacher. Her friendly disposition made all of my lessons comfortable and I genuinely looked forward to every lesson. Where Sue really shines is in her thorough teaching methods. Sue gave really detailed explanations when teaching things such as manoeuvres, roundabouts and offside/onside at lights, which made them clear, achievable and much less daunting. Sue helped me become very familiar with many different driving routes and in doing so helped me become a confident driver. I couldn’t recommend her enough! Thanks Sue :)."

Thomas Butler, Croydon, Surrey

Tom passed after taking lessons with instructor Sue"When I first started my lessons with Sue I had never stepped foot into a car. She quickly made me feel comfortable and confident behind the wheel with her structured and proven approach to driving. I highly doubt there is someone more knowledgable about the road and the way a new driver should be using it. For me one of the best things about Sue’s approach to teaching is her use of an iPad upon which she was able to clearly show me on a specially designed app what my car should be doing on the road as we approached any junction or hazard. Approaching my test Sue prepared me immensely with a number of mock tests on all the routes that could come up in the test. This meant that when I came to test it was all smooth sailing. FIRST TIME PASS! WOOO thanks Sue and Elite!"

Abi Kingsbury, Purley, Surrey

Abi had lessons and passed with Sue"I am a late learner in my 30s and Sue G was my third instructor; and definitely third time lucky in this case! I found Sue's teaching style has really supported me to stick with learning and I have managed to progress with her encouragement and patience. She is a very genuine and caring person and this was very important to me feeling comfortable and moving forward to achieve. Sue is very understanding but also directive and clear in explaining in repeated (and never with exasperation) and in different ways techniques and learning points. I am so pleased to pass and I feel that this is in huge part to Sue's teaching which having two points of comparison from previous teachers is excellent. I have already recommended Sue and Elite to others and did so without hesitation... It was well worth a few months wait to get on their books (the fact they are busy shows their reputation and quality) and I would recommend anyone in the area to go for Elite and if you can Sue!"

Adrian passed after lessons with Sue"After having experienced lessons with several instructors I can say that Sue was one of the best. I decided to go with her for the final stretch of my learning due to the reviews I had read, and I wanted an instructor who I felt confident could get me through the test but who I could also feel relaxed with. I made the right choice as with Sue's help I passed first time! Over the moon!!!"

When I started driving I was always so nervous but Sue made every lesson feel safe and always had faith in me! Without her support and guidance I wouldn't have been able to pass my test first time with only 1 minor! I am completely over the moon and I only have Sue to thank. I would recommend Sue to anyone as she has been completely amazing and made my learning experience safe, but also fun. I enjoyed every lesson and I am overjoyed with the final results!!"

Merlin passed with Sue in West Wickham"Sue is a great instructor with lots of patience. She never get angry if you panic and do things wrong repeatedly. She explains you every single mistake and help you make a better driver after every lesson.
I passed my test first time with Sue and really became a confident and observant driver from a panicky one. I recommend her for any nervous learners out there who cannot cope with rude instructors. She is a absolute sweetie. Thanks Sue again :)."

"After having a bad experience with my previous instructor, a few of my friends recommended Sue to me and I couldn't be happier. Sue has been nothing but supportive and patient with me from the beginning of my very first lesson, and I can't thank her enough for believing in me. She knows the test routes inside out and identifies your weaknesses straight away. Today, I passed my driving test first time with 3 minors, all thanks to Sue's help. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you Sue!"

Sam Warrington, South Croydon, Surrey

"After having 2 instructors previously prior to Sue I didn't have much faith in finding a good one. However once I met sue I found a instructor who's not only good at teaching but it also good and fun to get along with I passed my test within 2 months of meeting her.
If only she was my first instructor I genuinely believe I would of passed a very long time ago. Would recommend to all and anyone wanting to learn how to drive properly and pass their test.
Big up sue."

19 May 2017

Shrina Patel, South Croydon, Surrey

"Sue is an amazing instructor! I came to Sue from a different instructor, and had little confidence. Sue however, helped me become a more confident, observational and skilled driver. The best thing was that whenever I did something wrong (even if it was a silly mistake), Sue didn't get frustrated or angry, instead she calmly told me the issue and made sure I understood before I continued. Personally I think this made Sue a more relatable and efficient instructor. Moreover, Sue's friendly and helpful personality made learning to drive a more fun and swift process rather than a obligation."

Megan Vandyke, South Croydon, Surrey

"Passed 1st time with Sue! Throughout the whole process she was friendly and chatty and made me feel at ease in the car, especially in the first few months when I was inexperienced. She was a really good teacher and she helped me to progress fast, making the past few months a pleasure. Would defiantly recommend Sue to everyone considering learning to drive."

"I had lessons with Sue and have just passed my test first time. I thought that the teaching was great: I never felt out of my comfort zone but I was encouraged to progress and it was always made clear at each stage what I should be doing to be driving correctly. Sue clearly knows her stuff and often would talk about situations that were relevant not only to just pass the test but in order to drive safely in general. I would definitely recommend both elite and Sue wholeheartedly. "

Lauren"After a bad experience with my first instructor I was very nervous about trying with a new instructor, but Sue was excellent at putting me at ease and working at my pace. I had been driving with my parent for a good 12 months in between and Sue was quick to spot my bad habits and rectify them. As I work shifts she was flexible about my lessons to fit in with what I could do and gave me the confidence to pass my test when I was ready. Sue is exceptionally patient and a phenomenal instructor. I couldn't have passed my test (first time, with 1 minor) without her and I would absolutely recommend her to just about any learner out there. Thank you so much Sue!"

James"I can highly recommend Elite Driving School, especially my instructor Sue, who as far as driving instructors go I'm not sure how you could get a better one than her. With her lessons instructed in a clam and informative manor, learning becomes very natural and in no time at all you can see the progress within your own abilities. At no point did I ever feel uncomfortable, under pressure or as though I was given a situation I couldn't handle, such is her ability as an instructor even the most challenging situations presented in everyday driving conditions become very easy to deal with in no time at all. Plus not only that you'll find yourself having a great laugh and conversation with a very nice, caring and considerate person at the same time. I know when I passed and finished lessons with Sue one of my first thoughts was that of slight sadness, having had such fun on the lessons and getting to know her at the same time. I'll without doubt be in contact in the future with regards to further driver training and recommend her to others in the future. Many thanks Sue, I'm sure there is plenty of safe driving in the future thanks to your instruction. "

Fan"So pleased to passed my test first time at West Wickham today." "The instructor was changed to Sue just one month before my test and my first lesson with her was horribly bad due to not getting used to the new car. Sue is calm and rectifies my bad driving errors and habits. She emphasizes the important safety issues and helps me all the way through my last month learning. She's so patient and knowledgeable and I will definitely recommend Sue for any learners new or half-way!"

Aaron"Both myself and my sister passed our test's with Sue as our instructor. I do not believe there is a word in existence that can fully describe the full extent of just how exceptional an instructor Sue is. She has nothing but patience in any given scenario, regardless of where you go wrong or how badly and more importantly has an effective solution for everything; a solution both easy to understand and carry out. She is remarkably punctual no matter what time you have your lesson and is never without a smile or conversation to reassure you through the entire experience. I have no experience with any other instructors at this exceptional company, and I am sure they are all great in their own right; however, I would have to say I genuinely do not believe there are any better instructors than Sue at this or any given company. All round PERFECT. Thank you."

Laura"I have passed my driving test on 5/9. First time taking, I was quite anxious, but managed to get it done. Sue was my instructor and she was great for me. She is extremely organised, clear in the way she explains and gives instructions. Sue is quick in spotting bad habits (new or old) and finds a way to coach you to forget about them. She will get you ready for your test, with mock tests and preparing you mentally for the test day. I would definitely call her back if needed and recommend her to friends."

Though I’m not a new driver, yet it would have been a real challenge for me to clear Practical Driving test in UK without several techniques and tips Sue taught me during my driving lessons. Her training and explanations were easy to understand and reasonable. She is also able to manage her schedule very sensibly and effectively to cater her student’s requirements.

"From the moment I looked at the Elite website, and went through all the testimonials, it became apparent to me that it was Sue Garner who I wanted to have to teach my daughter. I was told by Elite that she was no longer taking bookings, as she was oversubscribed. I now know why! Since my daughter has been having lessons, I feel I have learnt to drive again for the 1st time! My daughter is FOREVER correcting my driving!! I am so very happy that I waited for her. I will always be indebted to her for not only getting her through the test, but for taking the time to explain things to her. Thank you SO much Sue! Xx."

Sophia"I had Sue Garner as my instructor and was absolutely fantastic in every aspect possible! Words cannot express my gratitude towards her and what she has made me achieve is invaluable. Her kind, patient and very understanding nature came through in just the first few lessons and I knew that I had chosen the right driving school along with the perfect driving instructor. I was always a nervous and anxious driver and each lesson, she managed to build up my confidence allowing me to drive confidently and competently on the roads. As well as her caring nature, she is excellent with time management and very flexible when changing lessons around so that everyone gets a fair amount of driving each week which allowed me to progress further as I was able to have regular lessons. As well as learning to drive safely, Sue put a great amount of energy into delivering fun lessons which are memories that I will never forget. Due to her amazing driving and teaching skills, I managed to pass my test first time which I never thought I could do. Thank you for putting your utmost time into helping me become a driver and I would recommend elite to anyone and most importantly Sue! I've really enjoyed our lessons together and will throughly miss our driving moments! Thankyou once again!xx. "

From very first lesson my driving instructor was wonderful - very professional, experienced and accommodating/understanding. Sue, your patience and kindness helped me to learn a skill for life from scratch in such short period of time, I'm ready to be on the road full of confidence! Test was very easy actually - all due to your knowledge, experience and obviously teaching technique. You are brilliant instructor And a beautiful person. I've been looking for driving school for a while, being 32 is tricky age as all your peers are already driving but friend's kids are too young. Just by pure luck I came across this website and after reading the reviews I decided to give it a go. So I have to leave a review just to reconfirm what a fantastic driving school it is, hopefully it will help other people to choose the right place to learn. Well done Guys at Elite - you are spot on!"

Sophie"After two bad experiences with other driving schools, I was almost on the verge of giving up learning to drive. Elite and my instructor Sue Garner completely changed that. She was so patient and friendly, and more importantly never once raised her voice or got angry. Instead of being criticised for my mistakes, we ended up laughing at them. Over the course of 5 months Sue managed to turn driving from an entirely negative experience into a positive, fun one for me, and for that I can't thank her enough. Her teaching methods are fantastic, the prices are brilliant for the standard of teaching and she was always on time, never cancelling lessons last minute. I couldn't ask for a better instructor and I'm going to really miss having lessons with her. I passed my test yesterday with only 2 minors! Elite is easily the best driving school around, and I would highly recommend Sue, she is exceptional. Thank you Sue!"

Sailaja"Sue has been an excellent and reliable instructor and made a huge difference in my learning especially after a bitter experience with my previous instructor from a prominent driving school. She's been very tolerant and there was no single instance of her losing temper for the mistakes I did during the course. She made me feel at ease and worked towards the betterment in every lesson. I was always terrified with roundabouts and reverse around the corners but thanks to her guidance, I could overcome my nervousness. She made me practice them repeatedly until I was perfect and confident. I'm extremely grateful to her and couldn't thank enough for all her service. I strongly recommend elite driving school and Sue to everyone."

Simon"After being initially nervous to learn to drive at 23 I decided to go with Elite and Sue Garner was my instructor. Sue is a fantastic instructor who immediately put me at ease and was patient with me whenever I made mistakes she would go over them until I grasped it fully. As a result my confidence on the road grew immensely and I believe this was key to having a good understanding with Sue. I would highly recommend Sue to anybody looking to drive as she's a great teacher. If I could give anybody one piece of advice it would be do 2 hours a week consistently as it cements your knowledge and I passed in just over 5 months. Thanks Elite the customer service has been excellent and thanks again Sue I really couldn't have done it without you!"

Pola"Sue is an exceptional driving instructor who has helped me through all the ups and downs of learning to drive. She is really calm and collected and will not patronise you for making mistakes; instead her support and encouragement motivated me and I always looked forward to my driving lessons! I was terrified of hill starts and not a big fan of roundabouts, but by the end, I had them mastered. Sue taught me that driving is really fun and filled me with confidence which allowed me to pass my driving test first time! It will really change how much time I will save on my travel, and have an overall beneficial impact on my life. I would definitely recommend Sue to everyone I know, she is an amazing instructor! "

My instructor Sue was always very calm and gave me her honest opinion on my driving and what I could do to improve. Sue was also so patient and never lost her temper with me, her patience made it easier for me, as a learner a patient instructor like Sue is definitely what you need! Thank you Sue for all your help, I finally did it :)."

Harry"I cant thank sue enough for the exceptional service she provided to me. I had 3 instructors before her and almost lost all hope. I had one test before I had sue, and got FOUR serious on this test. I thought I would never pass but then I met sue and her never give up attitude towards me gave me the confidence to pass my test with her. She never gave up even when I was making the same mistakes she would calm me down and re assure me that I would pass one day. The prices for lessons are quality and the service never in my 20+ hour lessons let me down. Cant thank elite enough for the support and guidance given to me. Highly recommend them, professional is an understatement. Posted by an extremely happy guy."

Sam"My experience with Elite was fantastic. Before Elite I was with a very poor driving school. I am a very anxious driver and my anxiety was made a lot worse by the driving instructor who was very impatient and not very understanding. Furthermore I could only get 1 hour lesson every 1-2 weeks and half the time the instructor would turn up late and finish the lesson early. However with Elite the whole experience has been the opposite of what I was used to. I had a very supportive and patient instructor called Sue. I was put at ease straight away and her teaching methods and belief in me helped me to pass my driving test. If it wasn’t for Sue my anxiety would still be stopping me from driving a car. I would like to say a big thank you to Sue and hope people reading with review with chose Elite when learning to drive. "

Matt"When initially researching driving schools, I found Elite to be the best value for money and they didn't disappoint. My driving instructor Sue was a fantastic tutor - friendly, patient and extremely accommodating when it came to fitting in lessons to suit me. Her clear, extensive knowledge in not only driving in general but also in preparing specifically for the test and routes was invaluable in helping me pass. I cannot recommend Elite highly enough."

Sarah Fullick"I want to say a hugeee thank you to Sue for getting me to the end! Passed today with the best help, Sue is the greatest for increasing confidence and trust (I came to Sue not wanting to get on a main road!), as she eases you into new things without making you feel uncomfortable. I enjoyed every lesson with Sue and knew I made the right decision when picking her. I feel 110% confident to drive now, knowing Sue gave me the best skills. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor! So so lovely to chat to and was more of a friend than an instructor! Don't want to say goodbye just yet.. So will do plus pass with her too! :) thank you Sue xx."

Ryan"I came to Elite after attending a poor driving school. It must be said that a big thank-you is owed to my instructor; Sue Garner for helping me get there and giving me the essential tools to pass 1st time. She made me at ease from the first moment I stepped into a car. Her guidance and flawless tuition method made any silly error look much better in a matter of minutes, just by something simple like talking over techniques and drawing diagrams. Her positive attitude to any situation was enough to assure me that I can do it and that eventually I would get there! Now here I am; two months down the road and I’ve passed. She really pushed me and got the best out of me every lesson. There is no doubt that I would recommend her to anyone! Simply the best instructor I have had and would have asked for! "

Anthea"I had Sue as my instructor and she was absolutely amazing! She had so much time and patience for me when I made mistakes. After my first few lessons I thought to myself that I’d never be able to drive, but Sue constantly reassured me and here I am! Passed my theory first time getting 50/50 in the first section after revision from Elite’s practise theory test programme, and also passed my practical first time all thanks to Sue! I would highly recommend Elite driving school to anyone. Thanks again Elite."

"I took my driving lessons with Elite and I am very happy with my decision. My instructor Sue was very patient and encouraging and delivered the instructions well. My main concern when I started taking the lessons was roundabouts and I am not that scared of them now. I had previously taken lessons with another company and found them a total waste of time and money. My instructor with the other company made me drive in the same locality and mostly on quiet road and I found her quite discouraging. Whereas, Sue, was very encouraging, I passed my test in the first attempt. Thanks."

"I learned with Sue, she was a really great teacher and made everything simple and clear. When I failed my first test she helped me work on the areas that weren't so good and helped me to pass second time. I am a better driver because of this and I really appreciate her help! Elite were great in helping me find a suitable teacher that would work well with me."

"I originally started to learn to drive when I was nineteen, but was so worried about taking the test that I stopped. Fifteen years and three children later, it was time I became more mobile.... Life without a car was getting ridiculously tedious and it was starting to affect my children too. I decided to go with a driving school and after reading the positive reviews about Elite I decided to go with them. The price seemed very reasonable too. Well, I have only positive things to say. My instructor Sue has been absolutely fantastic. She really helped me to have confidence in my driving and I always looked forward to lessons with her. I passed my practical test a couple of days ago and am absolutely over the moon! The only negative is that I will miss having my lessons with Sue.... I will be having a motorway driving lesson with her soon though, so that will be great, something to look forward to! Thank you Sue and Elite Driving School."
