I was hooked. I've met both Kev and Stuart from the training team and both guys were instantly likeable and put me at ease
"Having looked into the possibility of becoming a Driving Instructor in 2009, I made my first mistake.... I called the wrong people.
I didn't fall for the usual offers, promising the Earth that are maybe associated with larger national companies, but even though i did try to go for a local company with a fairly large profile, i soon became disillusioned.
Meeting in a car park.
Sharing time with other people in the car as opposed to a one to one.
It just didn't feel right and i didn't feel i was getting the undivided attention that I personally need to progress quickly.
Lets be clear. If becoming a Driving Instructor was easy, we'd all do it and the roads would be full of instructors.
But picking the right place to start can make it easier.
I saw an advert for Elite on the internet whilst looking for an instructor for a family member, and the "itch i didn't scratch" from 2009 came back.
I filled in an online form with my details and the first thing that impressed me was that i got a call from Kev within 30 minutes.
When i asked who Kev was, He told me he was the owner of Elite.....
Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's who you want to deal with, whichever company you call..... The Owner!
Within a matter of days i was having a "Taster Session" so to speak with one of the Trainers at Elite. A kind of try before you buy if you will.
I was hooked. I've met Stuart from the training team and both guys were instantly likeable and put me at ease.
Since then, with support from Kev in the office, i passed my Part 1 with a score of 92% and have recently passed my Part 2, with Stuart with a near perfect drive.
I would add at this point, that the level at which i was trained was not just to scrape through the test.
It became apparent that Stuart had pushed me to the best i could be and before my test he was very calm, which rubbed off on me.
He's become a friend who I trust to get me the career i want and when he told me "you've got this test in the bag" before i was joined by the examiner, it gave me the confidence to relax and give it my best.
He was right!
I've got the right team behind me at Elite.
Pauline or Kev answer the phone when i call with what maybe "Daft" questions. The office door is always open.
And the guy sat next to me coaching me gives me confidence and we have a good laugh as well.
I cant wait to get started on the career I've wanted for so long. I wish I'd called Elite sooner".
