Jenny Hutchinson driving instructor

Animal mad (I have many pets), Photography (though not very good), and a small interest in sports cars (mainly as my partner is building one!)

Before becoming an instructor in 2010 I worked at a school for children with special needs.  Prior to that I've worked in management, sales, and customer service.  

I trained with Ian (one of the owners of ELITE) after a friend who I was training with through one of the larger national driving schools recommended him. When I qualified as an instructor I intended to do this job part-time around my other job, and went out on my own.  However once I started I realised how much of a buzz I get out of doing it, and I decided to make this my sole career, and joined ELITE so that I had the support I needed to support my business.

I am a very patient and professional instructor, not one that screams and shouts.  I really can't understand how anyone can think that will help, but pupils regularly tell me this has happened to them before coming to me.  Surely this does more harm than good!  I try not to bog my pupils down with loads of technical information, I prefer to keep it simple. I also believe that different people learn in different ways, so I like to tailor my lessons according to their needs.  I also believe that people learn better if they enjoy the lessons, so I try to have fun, whilst making sure they understand what is needed to be safe behind the wheel.

I don't only teach people how to pass their test, but that it is a skill for the rest of their lives. I know that sounds corny, but it's so true. I want my pupils to pass their test, AND be safe drivers on the road. I've had teenage children, and that's what I'd have wanted for them.

Jenny's Testimonials

Carrie Cheung, Reigate, Surrey

"Jenny Hutchinson has been an excellent teacher who has always been really patient with me. I started off as a nervous driver and Jenny has made such a big difference in building my confidence in driving, allowing me to pass my test with only 3 minors :)"

"I recommend Jenny for anyone who wants a teacher who is has great humour and never raises their voice at you! Jenny has always been understanding in what the pupil needs to improve on and is able make lessons adaptable to your needs!"

"I was the absolute opposite of a natural when it comes to driving. I am in my 30s, no hand eye coordination and was extremely nervous about learning to drive. I had previously had lessons when I was a teenager but this had been an unpleasant experience which only added to my nerves."

"Signing up to Elite and taking lessons from Jenny Hutchinson has been one of the best decisions I've made. With great patience and good humour, Jenny has done a fantastic job in training me up to be able to drive. I passed first time with only one minor and more importantly feel safe driving my toddler around."

"Jenny was always very good at judging what I needed at different times. Sometimes this was lots of jokes to make the experience fun, sometimes this was gentle reassurance on a low day and sometimes this was pushing me to challenge myself. I feel Jenny has taught me to drive rather than just to pass a test and I highly recommend her teaching."

Sam Potten, Reigate, Surrey

"It was my first lesson so nerves were high but Jenny was incredible at easing the nervousness I felt with a lot of humour and in particular sarcasm with threats to even kill me which for some reason actually made me relax more. Instructions were clear and formal and very well explained so I could try and pick it up easily. We went through information at the start then I started driving myself with the help of Jenny. I loved every bit it was exciting and even if you make mistakes which I did, that doesn’t matter as Jenny would joke and laugh about it and explain where you went wrong. It was so exciting to drive an actual car for the first time and not a go kart and I loved every bit of it."

"I’ve recently started having driving lessons with Jenny and I can happily say that she’s not only a excellent instructor but an amazing person in general, Jenny is very calm when teaching which makes me relaxed and less stressed when driving and since Jenny isn’t a boring and strict instructor she makes the lessons fun and enjoyable, another thing to note is to not curb Jenny’s car as she will kill you as I’ve been warned already."

Olivia Ide, Tadworth, Surrey

"I just passed my driving test (first time), all thanks to Jenny Hutchinson! Jenny pushes you to boast your confidence, to focus on things that may need improvements and to make you the best driver you could possible be. She also helps you on things you may not understand how to do and makes sure you feel test ready. Can be firm in some places but to be honest that helped me get to where I am today! She goes ab"ove and beyond to help you with your test! Highly Recommend her! Miss seeing her every week! Many thanks to Jenny!"

Charlie Coveney, Reigate, Surrey

"After putting off learning to drive for years; at 24 I finally decided to take it on. Despite only being slightly older than most Learners, I felt completely out of place and out of my comfort zone with the idea of learning to drive. Jenny Hutchinson changed all of that. She has an incredibly calm yet firm temperament which is in my opinion exactly what was needed for me to gain confidence. Never shouting or berating me, just calmly explaining where I went wrong and how to improve it next time. It really didn't take me long to grasp the principles of learning to drive; which was definitely helped with the threat of death if I kerbed her car! A fantastic instructor, would absolutely recommend her to anyone!"

"I had my first driving lesson with Jenny and she is amazing! From the very beginning I felt at ease and comfortable and always up for a laugh whilst being professional. She always gives great, constructive feedback which helps me learn and the pace of learning is just right. I’m always so excited for me next lesson to arrive because it’s so much fun whilst learning. Would recommend 100% no doubt."

"I recently had my first driving lesson with Jenny, and I couldn’t recommend her more. She has a great way of making things easy to understand, whilst allowing you to feel instantly calm when you sit in the seat - really helped me as I was extremely nervous and I instantly felt relaxed. She also offers a promised guarantee of death if you damage her car, always a plus!"

"I had my first lesson with Jenny a couple of days ago. Instantly she showed me that I had nothing to worry about (apart from losing my life if I ruin her car!) and I did not feel overwhelmed by anything as she didn't overload with information too quickly. She is so lovely and such a laugh with a very relaxed teaching method which stops you from panicking. She kept checking if I was still breathing which was also a nice touch! I trust that I will do very well with Jenny-I'm so excited for my next lesson and I really recommend her :)."

"Just passed my test 2nd attempt. Had Jenny has my instructor and I honestly can’t thank her enough!! I was a nervous wreck when I first started learning and Jenny was so amazing with me. Patient but firm. Made me feel so at ease. Looked forward to my lessons as I knew I would be learning but having such a fun time as well. She’s a right laugh and I’d recommend her to anyone!! Jenny would push me to do it but didn’t push to a point where I couldn’t do it she knew my limit of what I was capable of and every lesson she pushed a little harder. I’m actually going to miss my lessons!! Thank you Jenny for everything u have taught me!! I’m sure I’ll be using your little sayings for a very very long time!! Xxxx."

She helped me when I had bad days with driving and she pushed me when I became more confident. She always adapted our lessons to suit me and my learning which was brilliant as it wasn’t just a fixed routine. I enjoyed my time learning with Jenny and I learnt so much and felt very prepared for my test. Which in the end I passed first time."

I very highly recommend her for an instructor!"

She was very easy to get along with and made driving much less nerve racking because of her humour. I really enjoyed the lessons and each lesson she managed to make me believe I had accomplished something new which made me much more confident when driving. I would defingitely recommend her!"

Tom Andrews, Reigate, Surrey

"Jenny is such an amazing driving instructor although at first it may seem a bit strange to people that she tells you to run over cyclists and golfers crossing the road you will soon get to understand Jenny's personality and how fun it is to learn how to drive with her! She always makes me laugh and every single time I have a lesson I know its going to be an absolute blast. If there is one instructor I would recommend to anyone it would definitely be her! P. S she does have some very strange names for things. For example she likes to notify people as cabbages, Not sure why she does this as it can come across as rather crazy at first but the most worrying thing is after a couple of lessons you will start to do the same:)."

James W, Redhill, Surrey

"Just had a first lesson with Jenny at Elite, having resumed lessons after a break of several years following some fairly uninspiring tuition by two previous schools in the area. But this is certainly a breath of fresh air by comparison! Or air smelling of whatever sweets happen to be in the seat pocket. Haven't found that out yet, but we'll get there. Jenny arrived promptly, talked me through what I have remembered and what I haven't, moaned copiously about cyclists (until she found out that I was one), then started on roundabouts (one of which I am not), and was generally good humoured and friendly. As the car has a heads-up display, I will promptly book lots more lessons and pretend I am a fighter jet pilot (in a black Mazda with writing all over it). In all seriousness, however, I can tell that professionalism and good mentoring skills are definitely present in that car, and that there is rather less likely to be any excuse to not get through this attempt at learning to drive! Or at least driving a car. My three-wheeler caused much amusement..."

"What can I say, Jenny is an outstanding instructor. Learning to drive is a difficult skill at first, but as soon you get used to it, it all becomes natural thanks to the help of Jenny. Jenny has taught me not only how to pass my test but how to deal with driving in the real world - which is a skill that'll stay with you for the rest of your life.

Jenny has been amazing, encouraged me all the way and seemed to know exactly what to do to calm my nerves. The way Jenny taught me made sure I had fun and we had a giggle every lesson, so I looked forward to every lesson even if I was nervous and feeling sick. I felt very safe with Jenny and knew she wouldn't let me get into anything I couldn't handle, even handling anything the road threw at me. I wasn't perfect but Jenny taught me what I was doing wrong, but also told me when I had handled others driving safely. Jenny made sure I didn't just pass my test, but taught me to drive to keep Bump and me safe. Jenny is an amazing instructor and I can't recommend her enough. I'll miss our weekly driving lessons. "

"Just had my first lesson with Jenny. After a gap of many years learning to drive. She was exactly like her reviews from other pupils. She explained everything in a relaxed and friendly way. She got me driving and even though my face did not show it, I really enjoyed the lesson and am looking forward to more."

"Jenny has been a great help getting me back behind the wheel. It's been four years since I passed my test and I hadn't had the opportunity to drive whilst away at University. Jenny has helped me remember all those little details I had tucked away, and has been calm, patient and comforting when I get worried. I'm already feeling much happier about being back in the driver's seat and look forward to my next refresher lesson!"

Will"Jenny worked very hard with me during our time together to help me through my test. She always quickly identified when I went wrong, and helped to correct me. She helped me to get to a level high enough to pass with flying colours, and to continue driving well. Rather than just doing enough to get me through the test, she goes above and beyond to set you up for life. She’s always happy, and makes lessons enjoyable, constantly making you laugh and smile. Thanks a lot. Will :)"

Luke"Just passed my test first time after a great 8 months with Jenny! I've looked forward to every lesson and her teaching is excellent, geared towards post-test driving and not just passing it. I couldn't have had a better instructor. Thanks!"

Luke F"Jenny did a great job of getting me through my test first time. She was always quick to identify why I was getting things wrong and gave straightforward tips on how to put things right. She also worked hard to encourage me to be a smooth and polished driver, rather than just learning to scrape through the test! Thank very much, Luke."

"I had my first driving lesson with Jenny and I was very apprehensive at first, but after breaking the ice talking about nails and other nonsense that girls talk about I began to feel much more comfortable. The location where Jenny took me to start off was ideal as the road was very wide and didn't have that many cars which helped with my confidence a lot. Jenny is a brilliant instructor and even though I didn't drive that much this first time round I look forward to many lessons to come."

Emily"Jenny, what on earth am I going to do without you?!  As thrilled as I am to have passed yesterday first time, I have started to realise that 8 months of amazingness has suddenly come to an abrupt end - I can honestly say that I have loved every single minute of learning to drive. Jenny believed in me even when I didn't and was always there for some words of encouragement (or a reality check!!) when I thought I was losing it! With the patience of an absolute saint, withstanding attempts of around 15 parallel parks in one lesson last week, and a personality that had me in fits each and every lesson, I am so thankful that I was lucky enough to find such a brilliant instructor to see me through this journey. She let me learn at my own pace, never putting me in a situation I was unable to handle, yet still pushed me each and every lesson, continuously showing me I could handle situations that I thought I couldn’t! I know that I would still be having lessons now, believing I wasn’t ready, if Jenny hadn’t convinced me to go for it… and guess what?! She was right, I was ready and I managed to pass first time thanks to the confidence she has put into me. If you told me a month ago, even a week ago, that I would now be confidently driving around on my own I would have laughed at you… it remains a mystery to me how she managed it! Jenny, thank you so so so much for EVERYTHING. Words cannot explain how much I am going to miss you, you absolute nutta… but I will see you on the road and I’ll be back for some pass plus lessons… you don’t get rid of me that easily!! :-) X."

"I've just had my first lesson with Jenny and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. I feel the lessons are good value for money - especially with the current offer. I found Jenny very positive, supportive and encouraging although the time just flew by too quickly and I can't wait for my next lesson! Thank you Jenny for making my first lesson so fun :) x."

"Jenny has been my instructor since the off-road driving lessons and I could not be happier with my progress. Jenny's approach to teaching is the perfect amount of joy, strictness and laughter. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons and always look forward to them."

"I have just started lessons with Jenny and I am already feeling confident about being a driver. She is very easy going and relaxed and always provides confidence with every turn (just left ones at the moment!) I feel very smiley whilst behind the wheel and have laughed so much with Jenny already. I'm really looking forward to my next lesson."

Kathryn Martin, Redhill, Surrey

"Jenny is a brilliant instructor, she is very patient and helpful which was what I needed to build my confidence. I enjoyed my first lesson with Jenny as she goes through everything very clearly and made me feel at ease. At the end of the lesson I felt more confident in myself. I look forward to more lessons!"

Nabihah Akhtar, Redhill, Surrey

David"Jenny is an excellent instructor. She was patient and extremely encouraging. If I made a mistake she would explain to me what I had done wrong and allow me to repeat the manoeuvre until I was confident. She is friendly and easy to get along with which made learning with her easier."

Isabella"Jenny is the most amazing instructor very patient, caring and makes everything very clear for you! I don't know how I would have passed my test without her constant support and believing in me, would 110% recommend doing lessons with her! Thank you so much Jenny!! Isabella x."

"I've been with Jenny just over four months now and within those four months I have achieved so much. You don't forget your first lesson with Jenny and the first thing you learn is don't hurt the car or else. When I started learning I had no experience what so ever, so getting straight into the drivers seat on my first lesson was quite a shocker for me and so exciting for someone that's never driven. I'm now on my last few lessons and I'm going to miss that crazy Jenny on a Friday, she makes the lessons fun and enjoyable for everyone and you become a very independent driver even when shes in the car. I think I was very lucky to get Jenny as my instructor and so pleased I did, I would highly recommend Jenny as she is a brilliant instructor."

Jade Jones, Redhill, Surrey

"I can't believe it has been four months since I started driving! No matter how many times I joke about moving to Karen because she has now got a green car, or Steve Goose because he has a cool name, both you and I know that I am not going anywhere Jenny! I wouldn't dare get in a car with anyone else at the moment as you have taken my confidence so far and I know that you will eventually get me to the stage where, as much as I don't want to think about it, I will be able to do this whole driving thing on my own! I look forward to lessons so much now, you make them SO MUCH fun and I am the only 17 year old that I know who isn't itching to pass their driving test as they enjoy lessons far too much to want to do it on their own!! Choosing a driving instructor is such a gamble: you get in a car with someone for the first time who you know next to nothing about, and have to develop a form of trust very quickly so that they are able to teach you how to drive! Thanks to help from a friend and these reviews, I absolutely gambled on the right instructor, and maybe this will help others to do so too! Thank you Jen and see you next week! :). "

"I've been using Jenny for about 2 months now, I was so scared of driving until I met Jenny, he calms nerves and is so patient !! Would HIGHLY recommend her, now I find driving fun and not a scare At all unless I put my fingers on her mirrors :) x."

Ryan Hutson, Redhill, Surrey

"I've had two lessons with Jenny so far and it's been great, she's really understanding when I do something wrong (which is quite a lot!) we just talk about how it could be better next time and then I have another go. Jenny is helping me gain confidence and I'm looking forward to having more lessons with her."

Ruth Brampton, Redhill, Surrey

"Had my first driving lesson today with Jenny after some 10+years since my last lessons. Had bad past experiences previously so was very nervous about starting up again (especially after such a long time). Jenny was exceptionally great. She made me feel at ease from the get go and by the end of the lesson I was very relaxed. She's very patient and a great pace of lesson. Here's to more lessons (without anymore boo boo's-SORRY!!!) :)xx."

Nurcan Demir, Epsom, Surrey

"Just had my first lesson with Jenny - having never even sat in the driving seat of a car before, and it was great. She talked through what everything did as well as the plan for the lesson, and by the end of the 2 hours I was up to 2nd gear! Can't wait for the next one!"

Luke G, Riegate, Surrey

16 March 2014

"When I initially started to think about driving lessons, I had so many recommendations from friends of where to go for driving schools and instructors that I didn't have a clue where to begin! I sieved through each recommendation, having a look on the website and at the instructor profiles and reviews and as soon as I got to 'Jenny from ELITE' on my list I knew she was the driving instructor for me."

"I knew that I wanted someone who I could feel completely at ease with and have a laugh with every now and again - well Jenny certainly doesn't fail with that! To say we have a laugh every now and again is a slight understatement... Despite the laughs, Jenny has already picked up on my little bad habits or areas that we need to work on and these are incorporated into each lesson and I can already see myself improving."

"I was so excited about starting to drive, however, terrified about being on the road with other drivers... Which is still evident from my panicked looks and squeals at Jenny every time there is anything bigger than a small car behind me or coming towards me!! But with Jenny's help it is becoming a little easier and I am feeling more in control each lesson... And I have only had three!"

"Thank you Jenny for making me feel so at ease on these first three lessons... I won't mention the threats of death if I left fingerprints on your mirrors or harmed the car in any way ;)... and I can't wait to see what my next lesson brings! xx."

Emily Howe, Brockham, Surrey

"Jenny was so amazing! She made me feel very comfortable in the car, and would always chat away to me and make me laugh. She is an exceptional teacher who pushed me every lesson to bring out the best in my driving. We had a lot of fun and I miss her a lot! I couldn't have done it without her. Thank you again, Jenny!"

Jordan Adcock, Redhill, Surrey

"When I started my driving lessons I was lacking confidence and I just didn't seem to get on with my instructor. Then I started lessons with Jenny and she was much more patient and understanding, she makes the lessons fun, she's easy to get on with and she has a good way of helping you understand things better, most importantly she makes sure that you learn to be a safe driver, I would highly recommend anyone to her ! Cassie :)."

I'm so happy to have passed but really couldn't of done it without Jenny, really will miss her!! Would also say Ian was fab done a few mock tests with me and really helped with nerves and getting ready for test!"

I had a two hour lesson and I learned a lot of information that I had never heard of but it is essentail to know it and jenny explained everything very well, definetly having more lessons! "

Every lesson was brilliant especially on the mad mile :). She had total faith in me even when I didn't and helped me boost my confidence. I passed my test 5 days ago!! I couldn't thank you enough jenny and will miss are lessons. I can drive!! wooooh :) Chanel."

"I had off-road lessons with Jenny for a while, so I got a bit of experience before getting on the road. Now I have just finished my 4th lesson on the road and I am extremely happy with my progress. Jenny is a great driving instructor, helpful, and not to serious whilst getting the job done. I am very satisfied with the quality of the lessons, and instructing. I look forward to every lesson."

William Jones, Banstead, Surrey

"Jenny is AMAZING. I'm fairly certain she is a miracle worker, or has magical powers! When I started driving I was incredibly nervous, and I refused to leave first gear for months. Jenny has helped me build my confidence and taught me how to be a good driver, and although I never believed it would happen, I passed my test first time! She is always patient and always fun, and no matter how nervous you are she will make you feel at ease. I have had such a laugh with Jenny and have learnt so much from her. Jenny is fantastic, I would highly recommend her and will certainly be coming back to her to do Pass Plus."

I will be asking Jenny to teach me go drive when the time comes. I would recommend her to any young driver that wants experience as its really fun and makes you feel more confident."

"Hi, I have just passed my driving test today at the age of, touch the wood, fifty eight! This wouldn't have been possible was it not for the support, encouragement and style of Instructor Jenny. I would take this opportunity to thank Jenny. I would also take the opportunity to invite fellow pensioners, and adults who got fed up with re-taking their tests along with freshers to try Jenny! SHE WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN! Thanks again Jenny!"

"Just had my first lesson with Jenny and it was wonderful! She was very patient and explained and reexplained things in such a clear way, so that I was nowhere near as nervous as I thought I would be when I started to pull away in the car for the first time. I can't wait for my next lesson so that this wonderful lady can help me to learn even more! (This review is completely honest and has not been effected by death threats)."
