Biography - Garry Commey Driving instructor 

Jogging, internet browsing, reading, and swimming 

Although I've only been a qualified approved driving instructor since 2011, I am a grade A instructor, and I am also an ORDIT (Official Register of Driving Instructor Trainers) trainer.  This allows me to pass on my wealth of knowledge, passion for the job, and experience to those who not only want to learn to drive, but also those who seek to move into this industry and become an ADI. my pass rate is quite impressive, and a large number of my pupils come to me as referrals from passed pupils, which makes the job really rewarding.

I decided to become an ADI because I enjoy meeting and helping new people.  As I also love driving, becoming an ADI seemed the perfect job, and teaching people how to drive safely on our roads fulfils my ideals.

I am also a professional nurse (RMN) with 13 years of experience. With my nursing background and experience, I do believe the everyone is a unique individual, and this has helped me to develop various training styles and method to suit the needs of my pupils, regardless of their levels of experience, skills and abilities.

I encourage my pupils to believe the anyone can fulfil and achieve their potential if they believe in themselves that they can do it, and I will help them to make this happen.

My motto is 'Never say never!'

Garry's Testimonials

Mr James Ijomah, Croydon, Surrey

"My Instructor Gary was great, taught me a lot with my driving lessons in a short space of time. The instructions and hints he gave me helped me pass my driving test.
I will highly recommend him to anyone looking to pass his or her test in a short space of time."

Phoebe Brooks, Warlingham, Surrey

"Gary has made my driving learning experience extremely enjoyable! I have really enjoyed all of my driving lessons with him. Gary is by far the best driving instructor I've had the pleasure to learn from and when he teaches he makes you feel really calm and at ease. Gary was never late for a lesson and had never cancelled. Making him very reliable. On a more personal note I'd like to thank Gary for his time and patience and for making every lesson fun and thoroughly enjoyable."

Mr Preetam Jooty, Thornton Heath, Surrey

"After countless searching online for a good driving school that were within my budget in Croydon, I came across Elite, I read they have a very good reputation for passing people, so I had applied to become a student with them.
Garry Commey became my instructor and upon starting the driving lessons, his basics into the driving world were so detail, he explained the risks, the good and the bad as well as the tips and tricks on how to do certain manoeuvres. All this was within a week. I knew then this is the guy who will help me pass. Within each part of the lessons, he explained everything clearly and concise that I were able to understand fully.
As the months went buy, I began doing mock tests, THIS helped me a lot, as I did lack a lot of skills in certain areas, but thanks to Garrys faith and confidence in me, I had improved on them. So much so from failing with 7-10 errors in the mock tests, at my MAIN driving test, for the first time, I had passed with only 3 minor errors all thanks to Garrys' practice mock tests.
A great instructor and a great person with a lot of patience.
Thanks Garry and I highly recommend this instructor to anyone."

Thank you very much Gary. I just recommended you to a friend. She will get in touch. God bless you abundantly for all your help. Excellent Service."

Diana, Croydon, Surrey

"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."

I passed my test on my 2nd attempt all thanks to the great teaching and patience of Gary. On top this the service I received from the staff in the office was also very good.

Thomas Caiger, Whyteleafe, Surrey

"Garry was a great instructor and helped me learn how to drive. To start off I used a different instructor however when I switched to Garry I felt much more at ease in the car and was far more comfortable. Garry was great and very detailed with his instructions which helped me to progress really quickly and passed in no time. After these lessons I passed first time after only a few months and have had great success since passing due to the detailed instructions given to me by Garry. "
