Biography - Paul Stubbington Driving Instructor

"I have been driving for over 30 years, and have a vast experience of being a road user.  I decided to become a driving instructor as I knew that I could combine skills I have gained in previous vocations to this role, and a good friend who was already an instructor recommended I contact Ian at ELITE, as he trained with him a few years ago."

"My working history has taken me from insurance, to working in graphics for newspapers, and multi-drop couriering around London.  In that time, particularly when working in the newspapers I have trained and mentored countless people, and would say that I have been able to develop my skills in being patient, to have an understanding of individuals training needs, and established a good rapport with all the people I have trained.  My experience in couriering in and around London really developed my awareness of other road users actions, and I know that anticipation is a large part of making a safe driver, not just operating the controls of a vehicle.  I have witnessed far too many collisions that could have been avoided simply through greater awareness."

"I am enthusiastic about, and simply enjoy driving, and I am keen to impart my knowledge and help people become not only good drivers, but safe and courteous ones too."

Robbie C, Horley, Surrey

"During the time I spent learning to drive, I had two fantastic instructors from Elite - PJ and Paul. The knowledge I gained from both, and the fun I had during my lessons helped to form a milestone in my life that I'll not soon forget!"

"Thank you for always being so patient friendly, especially considering how nerve-wracking I used to find driving."

Nick Bell, Redhill, Surrey

"I had a couple of refresher lessons with Paul in the Crawley area, as I hadn't driven for 15 years, when I originally passed my test. He very quickly helped me get my confidence in driving again, and tailored the lessons to my needs. He was also adaptive to my growing confidence, developing my independence as a driver. After 2 2 hour lessons he confirmed that I had shown the skills to be able to drive on my own - testament to his driving instruction."

"All in all I was very happy with the end result and the speed with which he helped me get my confidence back to drive. Thanks Paul!"

Valentin Priceputu, Redhill, Surrey

Thank you to Paul for teaching me all I needed to know and wouldn’t have passed without him."

Christopher Sardarsingh, Croydon, Surrey

Chris passed after taking driving lessons with Elite instructor Paul in Croydon"I just passed my driving test and I am pleased to say it is all thanks to Paul. With his guidance I probably wouldn't have been able to pass as quickly as I did. He was always on time and would always notify you the day before your lesson to make sure you can still attend. It is absolutely worth it for the money you pay and I will start recommending him to friends and family. Thank you again!!"
