Biography -

I have been driving for 20 years, and I have found a lot of joy and satisfaction through the sheer independence of being able to travel wherever I need and whenever I want.

Learning to drive has always been a passion that I wanted to share with others, so they can also experience the thrill of being able to drive themselves. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them on their route to success. 

I am patient and professional, and I treat each of my students individually, ensuring that my pupils gain as much knowledge and confidence as possible during the lesson.

My patience and focus on each and every one of my pupils' driving journeys is the best start in preparing you for a confident driving future.

In my personal life, I am the father of two wonderful teenage daughters. I also love to pursue a healthy and active lifestyle.

Anton Vydrin, Redhill, Surrey

SS Anton100 200805"I was very lucky to be trained by Szymon to prepare for the driving test with a very short notice from DVSA after the test center was re-opened after COVID-19. Szymon was able to adjust his calendar to accommodate a refresher training session and the exam timing for me. He has taken me to all complicated parts of the driving test, explained very clearly the routines for various road situations. Szymon is also a very patient and positive instructor, he uses visual materials very efficient to help his customers understand the expected driver behavior. It was a great luck and pleasure for me to be guided by him."

Praveena Keerty, Redhill, Surrey

Praveena passed after taking driving lessons in Redhill"I was trained initially by Symon and then By Ian. They both were very good in identifying my weakness and helped me improve.
They accommodated my last minute practical test plan and helped me pass with just one minor."

Turkan Ismail, Horlaey, Surrey

"Elite is highly recommended. My instructor was Szymon great teacher full of patience and knowledge. I previously had really bad experience with another company, who wasted my time and money. Elite on the other hand had me very well prepared for my driving test and I was confident of passing on the day, and I did !! Thank you Elite !"

Craig O'Toole, Horsham, East Sussex

Craig passed after taking automatic lessons with Szymon in Crawley"I thoroughly recommend Elite Driving School to learn with. I was a first time driver who was looking for Automatic lessons (which were hard to find in my area, West Sussex), but luckily Elite contacted me about an opportunity to learn with the very professional and helpful instructor Szymon. I am very grateful for this as in the space of 4 months I had gone from someone who had never driven to someone who passed their test first time and with 0 majors and 0 minors! Thank you to Szymon once again and I have given full marks for Value, Service and Quality to reflect the teaching, patience and encouragement he offered in helping me achieve my licence."
