Learner Driving Lessons
Refresher and Motorway Lessons
Driving since 1990 and Instructor since 2006
I enjoy instructing immensely. ;Not only do I get a great deal of job satisfaction and pride from seeing people progress from not being able move a car, to becoming confident and pass their test, but also knowing that I am an ambassador for road safety.
I have a confident and professional approach to my lessons, but always try to keep a jovial environment to ensure that my pupils enjoy themselves to aid their learning process.
When I'm not instructing I enjoy cycling, usually covering 100 - 200 miles per week if the weather permits, and I also watch quite a bit of football.

"Today I passed my driving test first time with 0 faults!! Could not thank Kevin Mantle enough. After being with a previous driving school last year, Kevin really helped me to regain my confidence behind the wheel, and got me to the stage of being able to pass first time with 0 faults in just under 4 months!! I really do recommend driving with Elite, especially Kevin, he was extremely patient with me."

"Kevin Mantle was recommended to me from a friend and I was very happy with the service. He taught me at a pace that was right for me and was happy to go over things as many times as I needed. I always felt comfortable and looked forward to my lessons. Kevin gave great explanations on how to do manoeuvres correctly with tips to get them right every time. He only suggested me booking my test when he felt I was ready which resulted in me passing first time meaning I didn't waist time and money on multiple tests. Would definitely recommend."

He was relaxed, informative and let me work through the requirements at my own pace. I never felt pressured when driving and his flexible nature allowed me to fit in driving, around my work Schedule. If you want your Pink License, look no further than the Tuition of Kevin."

My instructor was Kevin. He was amazing teacher and extremely patient. He taught me all the valuable skills that I need to be able to succeed in my test and so that I was able to pass first time. He was very reliable and was extremely flexible to pick me up from college and allow me to drive myself home (6 miles away), this was extremely valuable to me as it prepared me for completing this route independently once I had passed my test.

"Kevin is a great driving instructor. Much better than the BSM one I had in Putney. He's very patient, encouraging and generally has a good aurora that makes you feel safe with him sitting next to you. It took me ages to figure out how to do roundabouts and all that, I must have drove him mad but he always remained professional and we'd have a bit of banter and joke about life and politics etc."
"Sure there may be driving schools that offer lessons that are a couple quid cheaper per hour but honestly I wouldn't waste my time with those. I highly recommend Elite and if you live in Surrey, ask for Kevin!!!"

Jo Elgar, Egham, Surrey
04 February 2013
"I would definitely recommend ELITE to any one of my friends! Everything was explained so easily, not just why but also how. No matter how many times I asked the same question, Kevin was always happy to answer! 100% reliable and could always work round my schedule. Learning to drive was pretty daunting but I got to learn everything gradually and was always encouraged to do a little more on my own and slowly build up my own judgement. The car was great to learn in too! Great techniques used when teaching the manoeuvres and were tailored so I could use them in a way that made sense to me every time! When taking the test I was nervous but Kevin made sure I knew how to calm myself down and make sure I was doing everything the way I should be and knew how to. First time pass no problem! I highly recommend ELITE to anyone who wants to learn to drive properly! Thank you Kevin and ELITE! "
Pippa Davie, Englefield Green, Surrey
22 January 2013
"Dear Kevin, I would like to say thank you so much for being a fantastic instructor and believing in me and giving me the confidence to take my test. Today! Yes, We did it! My whole experience with Elite Driving School was wonderful from the moment I called them to book my first beginner lesson. My instructor Kevin was very informative and supportive throughout, offering encouragement to achieve the desired result and providing helpful tips. Although I was seriously lacking in confidence especially when it came to roundabouts, Kevin very rapidly built it up through very patient methodical instruction. A great teacher always fills you with confidence in yourself as well as the ability of what you can do and this is exactly what happened! I am pleased to recommend both Elite Driving School and in particular Kevin."
