More of Sue's Testimonials

Peter"I had lessons with Sue and have just passed my test first time. I thought that the teaching was great: I never felt out of my comfort zone but I was encouraged to progress and it was always made clear at each stage what I should be doing to be driving correctly. Sue clearly knows her stuff and often would talk about situations that were relevant not only to just pass the test but in order to drive safely in general. I would definitely recommend both elite and Sue wholeheartedly. "

Lauren"After a bad experience with my first instructor I was very nervous about trying with a new instructor, but Sue was excellent at putting me at ease and working at my pace. I had been driving with my parent for a good 12 months in between and Sue was quick to spot my bad habits and rectify them. As I work shifts she was flexible about my lessons to fit in with what I could do and gave me the confidence to pass my test when I was ready. Sue is exceptionally patient and a phenomenal instructor. I couldn't have passed my test (first time, with 1 minor) without her and I would absolutely recommend her to just about any learner out there. Thank you so much Sue!"

AnnmolAnnmol"I am over the moon now…Sue helped me to pass first time with very few minors!!! I found Sue while searching for a lady instructor having been told off from a male instructor elsewhere. Sue is very very patient, friendly, understanding, accommodating and what not. I wouldn't recommend anyone to anywhere else. Can't thank you more Sue… Million thanks to Sue and Elite… :)."

Luke"After struggling with an instructor from another company I got recommended Sue from Elite by a friend. She made me feel so much more comfortable, safe and confident on the roads with her professional but friendly teaching. Today I passed with 1 minor -I couldn't have done it without Sue and I can't recommend her highly enough! Thank you!"

James"I can highly recommend Elite Driving School, especially my instructor Sue, who as far as driving instructors go I'm not sure how you could get a better one than her. With her lessons instructed in a clam and informative manor, learning becomes very natural and in no time at all you can see the progress within your own abilities. At no point did I ever feel uncomfortable, under pressure or as though I was given a situation I couldn't handle, such is her ability as an instructor even the most challenging situations presented in everyday driving conditions become very easy to deal with in no time at all. Plus not only that you'll find yourself having a great laugh and conversation with a very nice, caring and considerate person at the same time. I know when I passed and finished lessons with Sue one of my first thoughts was that of slight sadness, having had such fun on the lessons and getting to know her at the same time. I'll without doubt be in contact in the future with regards to further driver training and recommend her to others in the future. Many thanks Sue, I'm sure there is plenty of safe driving in the future thanks to your instruction. "

Fan"So pleased to passed my test first time at West Wickham today." "The instructor was changed to Sue just one month before my test and my first lesson with her was horribly bad due to not getting used to the new car. Sue is calm and rectifies my bad driving errors and habits. She emphasizes the important safety issues and helps me all the way through my last month learning. She's so patient and knowledgeable and I will definitely recommend Sue for any learners new or half-way!"

J Fan, Croydon, Surrey

Aaron"Both myself and my sister passed our test's with Sue as our instructor. I do not believe there is a word in existence that can fully describe the full extent of just how exceptional an instructor Sue is. She has nothing but patience in any given scenario, regardless of where you go wrong or how badly and more importantly has an effective solution for everything; a solution both easy to understand and carry out. She is remarkably punctual no matter what time you have your lesson and is never without a smile or conversation to reassure you through the entire experience. I have no experience with any other instructors at this exceptional company, and I am sure they are all great in their own right; however, I would have to say I genuinely do not believe there are any better instructors than Sue at this or any given company. All round PERFECT. Thank you."

Aaron Amankwa-Walters, Caterham, Surrey

Laura"I have passed my driving test on 5/9. First time taking, I was quite anxious, but managed to get it done. Sue was my instructor and she was great for me. She is extremely organised, clear in the way she explains and gives instructions. Sue is quick in spotting bad habits (new or old) and finds a way to coach you to forget about them. She will get you ready for your test, with mock tests and preparing you mentally for the test day. I would definitely call her back if needed and recommend her to friends."

Laura A, South Croydon, Surrey

Francella"I had a great experience learning with elite driving school, my instructor was Sue. She made learning how to drive easy and enjoyable. Sue's enthusiasm and dedication really helped me to become a good driver. I passed with only one minor so I think that says it all. I plan on returning to sue for a motorway lesson very soon. Thanks for everything Sue."

Prad"I would like to thank my driving instructor Sue for her highly professional and dedicated approach and assistance. Though I’m not a new driver, yet it would have been a real challenge for me to clear Practical Driving test in UK without several techniques and tips Sue taught me during my driving lessons. Her training and explanations were easy to understand and reasonable. She is also able to manage her schedule very sensibly and effectively to cater her student’s requirements. I wish her and entire Elite team every success in future. Thanks again Sue :)."

"From the moment I looked at the Elite website, and went through all the testimonials, it became apparent to me that it was Sue Garner who I wanted to have to teach my daughter. I was told by Elite that she was no longer taking bookings, as she was oversubscribed. I now know why! Since my daughter has been having lessons, I feel I have learnt to drive again for the 1st time! My daughter is FOREVER correcting my driving!! I am so very happy that I waited for her. I will always be indebted to her for not only getting her through the test, but for taking the time to explain things to her. Thank you SO much Sue! Xx."

Sophia"I had Sue Garner as my instructor and was absolutely fantastic in every aspect possible! Words cannot express my gratitude towards her and what she has made me achieve is invaluable. Her kind, patient and very understanding nature came through in just the first few lessons and I knew that I had chosen the right driving school along with the perfect driving instructor. I was always a nervous and anxious driver and each lesson, she managed to build up my confidence allowing me to drive confidently and competently on the roads. As well as her caring nature, she is excellent with time management and very flexible when changing lessons around so that everyone gets a fair amount of driving each week which allowed me to progress further as I was able to have regular lessons. As well as learning to drive safely, Sue put a great amount of energy into delivering fun lessons which are memories that I will never forget. Due to her amazing driving and teaching skills, I managed to pass my test first time which I never thought I could do. Thank you for putting your utmost time into helping me become a driver and I would recommend elite to anyone and most importantly Sue! I've really enjoyed our lessons together and will throughly miss our driving moments! Thankyou once again!xx. "

Morris"From day one I knew that Sue Garner was a great driving instructor! Having had poor service and bad experiences with another organisation I contact Elite with no real expectations. Sue has now taught all three of my children to drive, overcoming both very anxious and overconfident students with great success. All three are now good, confident drivers. Sue's reliability cannot be faulted and she has always been accommodating when changes to lessons have been needed. All in all a great driving instructor who I would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Sue. "

Lucy"After a couple of bad experiences with other schools I had completely lost my confidence in driving and was close to giving up. I contacted Elite and after just one lesson, my instructor Sue changed this. Instead of dreading them like before, I looked forward to them and finally believed that I can get through it. Sue is a brilliant instructor and I have already been recommending her to family and friends and will continue to do so. Thank you so much Sue, I would never have passed without you. "

Vicky"I passed my driving test yesterday after only 3 months of learning with Sue! … 1st attempt! I would like to say thank you to Elite and especially to Sue. From very first lesson my driving instructor was wonderful - very professional, experienced and accommodating/understanding. Sue, your patience and kindness helped me to learn a skill for life from scratch in such short period of time, I'm ready to be on the road full of confidence! Test was very easy actually - all due to your knowledge, experience and obviously teaching technique. You are brilliant instructor And a beautiful person. I've been looking for driving school for a while, being 32 is tricky age as all your peers are already driving but friend's kids are too young. Just by pure luck I came across this website and after reading the reviews I decided to give it a go. So I have to leave a review just to reconfirm what a fantastic driving school it is, hopefully it will help other people to choose the right place to learn. Well done Guys at Elite - you are spot on!"

"Elite wasn't the cheapest driving school, but the standard they produced was brilliant. My instructor Sue, was always punctual and was always able to work around my busy schedule and provide me with the highest level of teaching. Elite's website gave me access to theory questions and hazard perception questions, which most sites don't offer. Thanks to Elite driving school, I passed both my theory and driving test first time! Excellent service! Thank you !!"

27 February 2015

Sophie"After two bad experiences with other driving schools, I was almost on the verge of giving up learning to drive. Elite and my instructor Sue Garner completely changed that. She was so patient and friendly, and more importantly never once raised her voice or got angry. Instead of being criticised for my mistakes, we ended up laughing at them. Over the course of 5 months Sue managed to turn driving from an entirely negative experience into a positive, fun one for me, and for that I can't thank her enough. Her teaching methods are fantastic, the prices are brilliant for the standard of teaching and she was always on time, never cancelling lessons last minute. I couldn't ask for a better instructor and I'm going to really miss having lessons with her. I passed my test yesterday with only 2 minors! Elite is easily the best driving school around, and I would highly recommend Sue, she is exceptional. Thank you Sue!"

Sophie Lee, Godstone, Surrey

22 February 2015

Sailaja"Sue has been an excellent and reliable instructor and made a huge difference in my learning especially after a bitter experience with my previous instructor from a prominent driving school. She's been very tolerant and there was no single instance of her losing temper for the mistakes I did during the course. She made me feel at ease and worked towards the betterment in every lesson. I was always terrified with roundabouts and reverse around the corners but thanks to her guidance, I could overcome my nervousness. She made me practice them repeatedly until I was perfect and confident. I'm extremely grateful to her and couldn't thank enough for all her service. I strongly recommend elite driving school and Sue to everyone."

Sailaja Kotamrajut, Croydon, Surrey

Simon"After being initially nervous to learn to drive at 23 I decided to go with Elite and Sue Garner was my instructor. Sue is a fantastic instructor who immediately put me at ease and was patient with me whenever I made mistakes she would go over them until I grasped it fully. As a result my confidence on the road grew immensely and I believe this was key to having a good understanding with Sue. I would highly recommend Sue to anybody looking to drive as she's a great teacher. If I could give anybody one piece of advice it would be do 2 hours a week consistently as it cements your knowledge and I passed in just over 5 months. Thanks Elite the customer service has been excellent and thanks again Sue I really couldn't have done it without you!"

Simon Blaquiere, Kenley, Surrey

Pola"Sue is an exceptional driving instructor who has helped me through all the ups and downs of learning to drive. She is really calm and collected and will not patronise you for making mistakes; instead her support and encouragement motivated me and I always looked forward to my driving lessons! I was terrified of hill starts and not a big fan of roundabouts, but by the end, I had them mastered. Sue taught me that driving is really fun and filled me with confidence which allowed me to pass my driving test first time! It will really change how much time I will save on my travel, and have an overall beneficial impact on my life. I would definitely recommend Sue to everyone I know, she is an amazing instructor! "

Harry"I cant thank sue enough for the exceptional service she provided to me. I had 3 instructors before her and almost lost all hope. I had one test before I had sue, and got FOUR serious on this test. I thought I would never pass but then I met sue and her never give up attitude towards me gave me the confidence to pass my test with her. She never gave up even when I was making the same mistakes she would calm me down and re assure me that I would pass one day. The prices for lessons are quality and the service never in my 20+ hour lessons let me down. Cant thank elite enough for the support and guidance given to me. Highly recommend them, professional is an understatement. Posted by an extremely happy guy."

Harry Symonds, Kenley, Surrey

30 September 2014

Sam"My experience with Elite was fantastic. Before Elite I was with a very poor driving school. I am a very anxious driver and my anxiety was made a lot worse by the driving instructor who was very impatient and not very understanding. Furthermore I could only get 1 hour lesson every 1-2 weeks and half the time the instructor would turn up late and finish the lesson early. However with Elite the whole experience has been the opposite of what I was used to. I had a very supportive and patient instructor called Sue. I was put at ease straight away and her teaching methods and belief in me helped me to pass my driving test. If it wasn’t for Sue my anxiety would still be stopping me from driving a car. I would like to say a big thank you to Sue and hope people reading with review with chose Elite when learning to drive. "

Matt"When initially researching driving schools, I found Elite to be the best value for money and they didn't disappoint. My driving instructor Sue was a fantastic tutor - friendly, patient and extremely accommodating when it came to fitting in lessons to suit me. Her clear, extensive knowledge in not only driving in general but also in preparing specifically for the test and routes was invaluable in helping me pass. I cannot recommend Elite highly enough."

Sarah Fullick"I want to say a hugeee thank you to Sue for getting me to the end! Passed today with the best help, Sue is the greatest for increasing confidence and trust (I came to Sue not wanting to get on a main road!), as she eases you into new things without making you feel uncomfortable. I enjoyed every lesson with Sue and knew I made the right decision when picking her. I feel 110% confident to drive now, knowing Sue gave me the best skills. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor! So so lovely to chat to and was more of a friend than an instructor! Don't want to say goodbye just yet.. So will do plus pass with her too! :) thank you Sue xx."

Ryan"I came to Elite after attending a poor driving school. It must be said that a big thank-you is owed to my instructor; Sue Garner for helping me get there and giving me the essential tools to pass 1st time. She made me at ease from the first moment I stepped into a car. Her guidance and flawless tuition method made any silly error look much better in a matter of minutes, just by something simple like talking over techniques and drawing diagrams. Her positive attitude to any situation was enough to assure me that I can do it and that eventually I would get there! Now here I am; two months down the road and I’ve passed. She really pushed me and got the best out of me every lesson. There is no doubt that I would recommend her to anyone! Simply the best instructor I have had and would have asked for! "

Anthea"I had Sue as my instructor and she was absolutely amazing! She had so much time and patience for me when I made mistakes. After my first few lessons I thought to myself that I’d never be able to drive, but Sue constantly reassured me and here I am! Passed my theory first time getting 50/50 in the first section after revision from Elite’s practise theory test programme, and also passed my practical first time all thanks to Sue! I would highly recommend Elite driving school to anyone. Thanks again Elite."

"I took my driving lessons with Elite and I am very happy with my decision. My instructor Sue was very patient and encouraging and delivered the instructions well. My main concern when I started taking the lessons was roundabouts and I am not that scared of them now. I had previously taken lessons with another company and found them a total waste of time and money. My instructor with the other company made me drive in the same locality and mostly on quiet road and I found her quite discouraging. Whereas, Sue, was very encouraging, I passed my test in the first attempt. Thanks."

"My Son Ben, passed 1st time with Sue, (Brilliant!) She is so patient. We're lucky we found her, as Ben's twin sister is also having lessons with her and we're looking forward to her passing shortly too. Well done Sue for getting Ben through so quickly."

"I learned with Sue, she was a really great teacher and made everything simple and clear. When I failed my first test she helped me work on the areas that weren't so good and helped me to pass second time. I am a better driver because of this and I really appreciate her help! Elite were great in helping me find a suitable teacher that would work well with me."

"I originally started to learn to drive when I was nineteen, but was so worried about taking the test that I stopped. Fifteen years and three children later, it was time I became more mobile.... Life without a car was getting ridiculously tedious and it was starting to affect my children too. I decided to go with a driving school and after reading the positive reviews about Elite I decided to go with them. The price seemed very reasonable too. Well, I have only positive things to say. My instructor Sue has been absolutely fantastic. She really helped me to have confidence in my driving and I always looked forward to lessons with her. I passed my practical test a couple of days ago and am absolutely over the moon! The only negative is that I will miss having my lessons with Sue.... I will be having a motorway driving lesson with her soon though, so that will be great, something to look forward to! Thank you Sue and Elite Driving School."

"Sue is a fantastic instructor, and she helped me to pass my test on the first go, and with only 3 small mistakes, which I'm sure were due to nerves :-) . Sue explained things really well, and kept calm when I made stupid mistakes."

"Thanks again Sue!!  I'll definitely be sending more of my friends to you."
