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.

Sue's Testimonials

Lewis passed with Sue"The lessons are amazing, efficient and extremely effective. My instructor Sue structured the lessons very well, catering more time to areas and routes that I needed more practice on. This allowed me to become confident behind the wheel and grow as a driver, allowing me to pass first time on both my theory and practical driving tests!"

Lola Valles, South Croydon, London

Lola passed with Sue"Sue is an excellent driving instructor; she taught me how to drive confidently and safely, and she always made sure I had my scheduled weekly lessons even if her week was really busy, adjusting to last minute time changes. My goal was to pass my test before my holiday in August and she put her heart to it, working with me to get me ready and I passed! Even though my test centre was not her usual one, she went out of her way to show me the relevant routes. I thoroughly recommend Sue to anyone looking for a patient and reassuring teacher, she was amazing thank you Sue."

"Sue taught my son to drive, he passed first time. Sue was so good with him very patient and kind and such a lovely lady, I can’t recommend her enough. She gave him the confidence to drive safely and taught him everything he needed to know to pass confidently. As a mum all you can ask for is that your child is safe and happy in someone’s care and with Sue that’s exactly what you get from her."

Hannah"Elite were so professional and supportive in my driving experience. I had Sue as my instructor and she was great at helping me get my confidence back after some tricky learner experiences. She was calm and helped ease me into things whilst pushing me to do more and be better each time.

"I had Sue as my driving instructor and I couldn’t have had a better person in the car seat next to me. With the pandemic and university, she was flexible and kept in contact with me throughout this process. In the car, she made me feel much calmer when driving and she explained everything clearly.

"I recently passed my driving test learning with Sue Garner. She is a fantastic instructor and has all the key traits you need when learning to drive; kind, calm, patient, supportive and informative. It hasn't taken me long to pass my test, and I certainly would not have been able to without Sues support. I'm genuinely going to miss having my lessons with Sue every week.

Hana Aleem, Croydon, Surrey

SG Hana1 210429"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."

Louis Davidson, Redhill, Surrey

SG Louis100 201028"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."

Mayur "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."

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.

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!"

She was the deciding factor in this being an enjoyable period learning to drive and a successful first(!) time pass (16 years ago I'd spent a year learning and failed 4 times before giving up). I have already recommended her to everyone I can think of. Thanks for your help Sue, you were always great company even when my baby brain was kicking in!"

Penny Francis-Dyer, Coulsdon, Surrey

"Sadly my son didn’t really develop with his original instructor and he decided to make the change to Sue from Elite. I was really impressed. Sue provided excellent communication with both my son and I where required and was always punctual. I’m glad to say he passed first time and I have no doubt that Sue played a big part in this success. Would wholeheartedly recommend her in the future. Professional, diligent, polite, value for money, flexible and an excellent instructor."

Zak Francis-Dyer, Coulsdon, Surrey

Zak passed his test first time after taking driving lessons with Sue"Overall had a great service with my Driving instructor Sue. I had previously been with another instructor and decided to make the switch upon a friends recommendation. My new instructor Sue quickly identified the areas of improvement I needed a lot faster than my previous instructor. I also some a lot of time driving the West Wickham test routes to prepare myself for the test. As a result I managed to pass first time and would happily recommend my instructor Sue to any drivers looking for lesson and to pass their test."

Bradley passed his test after taking driving lessons with Sue in Croydon"Sue at Elite Driving was very good in helping me pass my test, I had another instructor who I feel wasn’t helping me progress as quick as I wanted to so I changed and my progression increased quickly , I felt much more comfortable with key components of the test such as roundabouts and the mannovers . I would certainly recommend elite driving school to anyone looking to start learning."

Paradise Clarke, South Croydon, Surrey

Paradise passes with Sue in Croydon"I completed an intensive course with Sue and she was absolutely fantastic! She was so organised with the planning of the lessons and always gave honest, professional feedback to help me progress. The quality of her teaching is amazing - She uses an app to give a visual representation of the situation and then allows you to practise whilst instructing you. Her consice teaching then gives you the confidence to perform with your own initiative. I am so happy that I found Sue as my driving instructor. I can't begin to thank her enough!!"

Lucy passed with Sue"I passed first time with no minors because of the excellent service of Elite and my instructor Sue. Sue not only helped me to be safe on the road but helped me to understand why everything I was doing was keeping me safe and the importance of all my checks. She is really clear when explaining and was really patient with me if I had a breakdown. She is very caring and she genuinely wants you to pass and cares about you passing compared to just wanting as much money as possible from you. Would recommend her to any type of student."

I loved having lessons with her as she would always help to improve my driving skills and tell me what I needed to do to get better, but she was also chatty and bubbly which made lessons enjoyable! I would definitely recommend Sue as a driving instructor!"

171005SG Rebecca"I had an amazing experience learning how to drive with the Elite Driving School. Whenever I didn't quire get something, it was always reassured and motivated!I loved how in the next lesson we would quickly touch upon what I struggled with previously to ensure I had developed. I always felt calm and reassured and in control in the car, which came down to how amazing my driving instructor - Sue was! She was amazing and was always there for me not only in the car, but would check up on me on text if I had a bad lesson or would congratulate me when I did well! It was just nice to hear from an expert that you were doing well! I can't thank her enough for doing such an amazing job! Thank you Elite Driving School!"

If anybody is thinking about learning to drive and is maybe a little hesitant, just go for it with elite."

"Would 100% recommend."
