"Couldn’t ask for a better driving instructor than Sue – she's calm, patient and incredibly knowledgeable.

If you want to be both a good and SAFE driver go to Sue. For anyone struggling with anxiety she made overcoming challenging roundabouts and situations feel simple and manageable with clear instructions and practical advice. She tailors lessons to your needs and works with you to find ways to overcome any fears or difficulties while still keeping lesson fun and engaging (key for anyone with ADHD!). More than anything Sue is a kind, compassionate and a pleasure to be in a car with.

Will miss our chats but know you’re in safe hands with Sue!"

"Sue is an incredibly kind and patient instructor who makes you feel both safe and comfortable when driving on the roads. She always ensures that you are fully aware of how to tackle different challenges but is still there to provide a helping hand when needed. Every lesson is perfectly planned so that you are always progressing and becoming a more confident driver. I couldn’t recommend Sue enough and firmly believe that she has the ability to get anybody to pass. Thank you so much for your amazing work!!"​.

"Sue is the most amazing instructor I could have asked for. She explained everything thoroughly from the very first lesson and was very patient even if she had to repeat a few times. She was a calm presence throughout and made me feel much more at ease when tackling busy roundabouts or new areas as a learner. I would recommend her to anyone, and I felt very confident going to my test knowing she thought I was ready. Thank you Sue!!"

"I am so grateful to have had Susan as my driving instructor. I have had lessons prior to Susan’s and Susan’s way of teaching is by far THE BEST. Susan is detailed and thorough in her teaching and explanations - I find this very important and helpful for every learner who wants to become a CONFIDENT and SAFE driver on the road. Susan is extremely caring, kind, empathetic and professional. She always took notes of my progress during my lessons and she was willing to go above and beyond to help me understand the practicalities of driving on the road. Susan understands the feelings and anxiety a learner driver faces behind the wheel and was always very accommodating whenever I was feeling nervous and anxious. I can’t recommend Susan enough and I will miss her dearly! She has not only become an instructor but also a dear friend. I wish you all the best Susan with the rest of your students, your hard work for us truly pays off! Thanks again, Sa xx"

9th March 2023

"I had the best experience learning to drive with Susan, she is patient, kind, articulate and most importantly knows how to make driving fun - we laughed together a lot!

After having a few instructors that weren’t quite right prior to Susan, I was delighted to find her and knew that I’d be able to pass my test with her. Susan is a fountain of knowledge and knows the roads inside out, which is incredibly useful for someone who hasn’t always lived in this area. Learning doesn’t stop at the lessons, she is also very resourceful in sending extra videos, links and apps to give that extra education - which is definitely needed.

Frankly, I am jealous of anyone who gets to learn with Susan, I will miss our lessons very much!"

"How to describe Sue?! Patient, kind, with a hint of "yes mum" ;)

I don't think I have any words that could describe my gratitude towards her. She is an amazing instructor and a beautiful person. Not only does she teach you how to pass your test but she teaches you how to DRIVE for after you have passed. All her lessons are geared to you and what you struggle with. She sends pictures and videos, suggests people to follow on YouTube with all the best videos of routes and techniques. Spends time writing notes so you don't forget what was done the lesson before.

Just an outstanding instructor. 5***** isn't enough. I will forever be thankful for our time together and wish her the very best in her professional career.

So if you want the best instructor, just give Sue a call. Best money I have ever spent.

Thank you so much Sue xxx"

"Susan is calm, patient and extremely encouraging! She always made me feel relaxed in the car and took so much care in teaching me in a way that was the simplest for me to understand. She also sent videos and notes from my lessons so I could revise them for my test! She was so reassuring even when I did make mistakes and helped me to understand what went wrong and why so it wouldn’t happen again. I couldn’t recommend Sue more if I tried she is honestly the best and I’m grateful that she’s taught me such an amazing life skill. Thank you Sue xx"

Susan always knew the right amount to push me, this allowed me to see progress every lesson and made me always look forward to my next lesson. Thank you so much for everything Susan !"

Congratulations Sarah!! 

Passed 8th Dec 2022

"I remember reading glowing testimonials from Sue’s past pupils when I was originally looking for a driving instructor. Now after successfully passing my test myself I’m thrilled to be writing my own.

There’s no doubt that learning to drive is a big undertaking for time, finances and commitment. With this investment, I was so lucky to find Sue as my instructor; she made that time a joy.

With the patience of a saint and an eye for detail, Sue really helps you to reach your potential. Through clear and calm teaching adapted to different learning styles, Sue ensures that you understand each step along the way. The lessons themselves were challenging, but Sue’s personable manner made them enjoyable. Although I’m so glad to have passed my test and be moving forward with the life skill of driving, I will truly miss my lessons with Sue.

Sue is a fantastic teacher, I’m so thankful for my experience learning to drive with her and I cannot recommend her more."

"Can’t even put into words how much of an amazing instructor Sue is, but I’ll try. She’s the perfect balance of patient and reassuring but will push you to your full potential. What I found most helpful was that she’d always ensure that you understood what your mistake was, how it happened and how to prevent it from happening again. It really made the learning process insightful. It was honestly such pleasure to have Sue as an instructor I will always sing her praises"

Congratulations Ellen, passed 2nd time with just 1 minor!!

27th October 2022

"Sue is a truly wonderful teacher that genuinely cares about the success of her students. I credit my pass entirely to her seemingly endless well of patience and support, without which I definitely would have given up learning to drive within a few months. I couldn’t recommend Sue more, especially if you’re nervous to start driving or - like me - you tend to give up trying something new if you aren’t good at it straight away. Learning to drive is hard, but Sue makes it feel achievable."

Congratulations Daisy, passed 2nd time!!

3rd October 2022

"I have had a few driving instructors before Sue, and Sue is by by far the best! Sue is so kind, patient and reassuring. She put me at ease immediately, which enabled me to learn so much better and really helped my confidence grow. I started learning with Sue when newly pregnant, and baby brain quickly kicked in, but Sue has the ability to explain all aspects of driving so clearly and concisely, and this really helped me remember all the important steps. Sue is also great at debriefing at the end of each lesson so you know what is going well, and what needs a bit more focus. That was such a valuable discussion for me. She is also just the loveliest person, and is so flexible and accommodating. I will really miss my chats with Sue, and cannot thank her enough!!"

"I’d never had a driving lesson prior to starting with Sue, and her ability to explain everything clearly and thoroughly was brilliant. Sue is incredibly patient and able to maintain a calm atmosphere at all times. All of her lessons are structured with specific topics to teach key skills, but she is also amazing at adapting all of her methods and references to suit you as an individual and the way you learn. Her in-depth knowledge of local areas and tips for success are extremely helpful, but she also focuses on helping you become a safe and capable driver for life. Thank you so much Sue!"

Congratulations Alannah, passed 9th June 2022!

"Sue is honestly the number one teacher. Friendly, patient, and encouraging. I always had excellent explanations of how and why.

From the very first lesson right up until my test day she has put me at ease and given me the confidence I have needed to get out on the roads. Sue’s wonderful personality combined with her extensive knowledge of driving makes her the best person to learn with.

I am going to miss my lessons with Sue so so much".

"Sue’s teaching and knowledge is second to none. More than anything though Sue is super friendly, and a pleasure to drive around with. At the start I was a bit nervous, but quickly felt totally fine. With Sue you’re in safe hands. As we moved through the lessons I always felt that Sue knew exactly what was needed to help. Any challenges were quickly overcome. By the time I got to my test I felt thoroughly prepared, and really appreciated how much Sue was rooting for me to pass. Thanks Sue!"

Congratulations Sophia, passed 1st time!!

"​Sue is literally THE loveliest person, she is honestly probably the most patient person I have ever met, she is immensely kind, empathetic and compassionate. Being on the roads as a driver is scary but I always felt safe with Sue. She is extremely good at explaining the concepts you’ll need to be a good driver and was so tolerating of my never-ending and repetitive questions! She is incredibly encouraging and understanding as an instructor, and I can tell that she truly cares about each person she teaches:) I will recommend Sue to literally anyone who’s looking for driving lessons, if only every instructor was like you Sue! I’m going to really miss our lessons, cannot thank you enough xx”

She is very patient, understanding, professional and a good motivator.

Each lesson was structured to concentrate on my weakest points and how to fix them! She is friendly and great listener - making you feel very comfortable. She will not only teach you how to pass your driving test but how to be a good driver.

I looked forward to every session with her and will definitely miss our chats!"

Her approach to teaching is adaptable according to learner’s ability and preference. Being a kinetic learner she made the lessons very practical which meant I could learn much quicker and more effectively. Passing first time is a testament to her teaching skills, and for that I can’t thank her enough!"

Congratulations Alex, passed 2nd time!!

14th December 2021

"Susan’s fun name first caught my eye and encouraged me to get in touch, as soon as we spoke on the phone I was immediately put at ease. Being a new learner, she was thorough with the theory, which helped give me confidence throughout our lessons. I never felt I was left with unanswered questions, and any question I did have was always answered professionally. She has been an excellent teacher from the start, adapting to my needs, ensuring I don’t pick up any bad habits and most importantly, teaching me how to drive safely. Beyond that Susan’s is a lovely, kind and funny person that I now feel fortunate to know. I couldn’t recommend her enough!"

Congratulations Susanna, passed 1st time!!

25th November 2021

"Sue is an exceptional instructor and I would recommend her unreservedly. She is a very astute and observant teacher, focussed on what you can do better, identifying areas to focus on and making sure you practice them. She's clear and great at explaining things. She is also calm, kind and encouraging and creates a great atmosphere to learn in. I'd had a different instructor before finding Sue who had none of these qualities - I wish I'd found Sue earlier! I made progress so much more quickly with Sue, and enjoyed lessons so much more. Thanks Sue for everything!"

Congratulations James, passed 2nd time!!

2nd November 2021

Not only were the lessons informative and thorough, she managed to keep the learning process fun. In stressful situations she was supportive and had endless patience and understanding. She has taught me to be a confident, safe driver which is all I could have asked for. I will genuinely miss having my lessons with her now our journey has ended. I can’t recommend her enough!"

"I am so happy that Susan has been my driving instructor. I had tried lessons in the past with​ someone else but when I moved to Susan she made me feel much more confident and calm. Susan has such a positive attitude and is so supportive and encouraging during lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to drive as you feel completely safe but Susan also ensures that she is pushing you and challenging you too at an appropriate pace and I was delighted that I passed my test at my first attempt"

"I'm really glad I learned to drive with Susan — she’s a brilliant instructor and probably the reason I was able to pass first time! Her lessons were organised and structured to get lots of practice for every junction type and manoeuvre. She’s patient and reassuring, and gave helpful feedback during every lesson so I was really able to focus on the things I had to improve. Her driving tips and reference points were not only great for the test but I will remember them as a driver going forward as well. Overall I’d absolutely recommend Susan to any learner driver.

I had bad nerves on my first couple lessons, but Susan is so good at helping you build your skill and confidence each lesson. I ended up loving every lesson, and looking forward to my next class as soon as I got out the car!

Sue has such good techniques and tips for driving, she will teach you everything clearly and thoroughly. I realised during my test how effective this was, it was such good help.

"Sue is an outstanding driving teacher and I would definitely recommend her to anybody.

Her commitment, flexibility, patience and sweetness is what makes all difference for me.

The fact that she makes you think 💭 where the mistake was and how you would fix it helped a lot, not to repeat them and recognised straight away if I did it.

If I didn’t have a teacher 👩‍🏫 like Sue going through lockdown I don’t think I would manage to carry on.

She always goes the extra mile.

Thank you very much indeed for been my teacher and part of my driving history.

You are a great teacher and a lovely person too. I will miss our hours out on the road.

"Susan is a fantastic driving instructor. Every lesson was a constructive learning experience to prepare for the exam, and any mistakes along the way were explained in both a reassuring but professional way, with clear advice on how to fix them. The tips and reference points that Sue taught me for the manoeuvres were easy to learn and really consistent, which I will never forget when I need to do them in the future. Croydon/Thornton Heath can be an intimidating area to take your driving test, but my mind was put at ease with Susan. Thank you!"

"Susan is a fantastic instructor and an even better person! Her calmness, patience and experience helped me so much when learning, making me feel very relaxed and allowed me to be confident in the car. Even when I made mistakes, Susan always knew what to say or what to do to help me in that situation. Our lessons had the perfect balance: serious when it needed to be, but she can also make jokes and have a laugh which made the lessons X10 better.

I cannot thank Susan enough for helping pass 1st time, and I’d recommend her to anyone. She always has a smile on her face and I’ll miss the lessons dearly"

It is obvious she cares about the success of each of her students and with her words of encouragement she is like you’re own personal cheerleader. She gave me some really great tips and things to watch out for when doing my driving test which helped me pass first time. I can’t thank her enough."


Congratulations Darren, passed 1st time with 1 minor fault! 4th December 2020


"Susan is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable driving instructor.

She has a naturally calm persona yet firm way of teaching, which was perfect for learning. I felt totally at ease through every lesson and even when I

needed further assistance on certain manoeuvres (reverse bay parking) she pointed out some really easy steps to follow which clearly shows how experienced she is.

Throughout the lessons which are structured in a way that makes you feel more and more confident as you go, Susan helped greatly by clearly explaining what is required on test day. This gave me great confidence on test day and helped me to pass.

All throughout the lessons Susan has a great personality and you'll have a good few laughs along the way, which I found really useful, as this put my mind at rest as i had not driven for 20 years.

I would highly recommend Susan and if you're in the South Norwood, Thornton Heath area, don't bother going with anyone other than Susan."

Congratulations Eren, passed 27th August 2020


"I am so glad Sue was my instructor. She’s fun, reassuring and really cares on a personal level. Whenever you feel unsure about something, she is always there to help - even if you need to get your worries out of your system the night before your test. Having just passed, I’m super excited to start driving independently. If you want to be stuck in a car with an instructor until you pass your test, it’s definitely Sue!"

She is incredibly patient, reassuring, professional, and dedicated to helping you not only pass your test, but ensuring you are a confident and safe driver. Driving manual is not an easy task, but with Susan’s knowledge and clear explanations she helped me pick it up quickly.

"Sue is an outstanding instructor!

Having failed 4 driving tests 18 years ago, I really wanted to get back into driving. I had taken some lessons with a previous instructor, but felt that their teaching style wasn't right for me. I contacted Sue and from the very first lesson I knew that she was the right instructor for me. I began lessons with Sue when I was 7 months pregnant with my second child. Her clear and encouraging teaching style really helped me. She is kind and patient and it felt like I had known her for years. 4 weeks after having my baby, I got back into my lessons with Sue's encouragement and now I'm so proud to have passed my test only 4 months after having a baby!

Sue is such a great person who is easy to get along with and each lesson is like catching up with a friend whilst learning a lifelong skill.

I will miss my lessons with Sue!

Thank you so much for helping me pass my driving test. xxx"

She has an amazing ability to keep calm (and keep me calm) even in the most difficult of situations which has definitely had an impact on how I deal with tricky driving situations. She’s got the perfect balance of being kind and patient but also strong and assertive when necessary. She is so invested in her students and goes that extra mile that you wouldn’t normally expect from an instructor. Thank you so much Sue for everything and making learning to drive an enjoyable experience! I am definitely going to miss our lessons together!"

Her teaching approach really helped me to better understand the technicalities of driving, improve my existing skills and rebuild the confidence I had lost. She never made me feel stupid, even when I asked the same questions again and again or couldn’t get the hang of something straight away and I really looked forward to our lessons. She was also very conscious of the fact that I had a baby I had to work lessons around, even allowing me to bring him with me for some lessons, which was a great help. After a few short months I went into my test feeling nervous but sure that I now had all the skills I needed to pass - and I did! Thanks!"

This time, I needed someone who could reassure, be kind, clear in teaching style and have patience as I tried to conquer my fear. Sue gave all of this and more. I now love driving, am itching to do as much of it as possible and even feel as though I’m a safe driver, something I never thought would be possible. I will really miss the learning process, lessons with her and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to drive. Thank you so so much Sue!"

I really struggled with fear of driving due to anxiety and confidence issues across everything in my life, and Sue showed me I could do it and went with me step by step. The unique thing is how she helps diminish the pressure and teaches you for the individual that you are. Could not recommend more highly.

"Succeed with Susan

Yes, l most certainly did succeed today with Susan.

I can't express how much, or how highly l recommend this lady instructor. She has, from my first lesson with her, instilled confidence and assured me that l can get through my driving lessons and pass my test. Susan is patient, her instructions are precise and non-fussy. Although l have had many lessons when l was younger, l could not tie-up the instructions with the movability of the car. Susan's explanations and guidance, (with the occasional text notes) helped me to PASS my test today. I am a lady of advancing age, but age was not a hindrance to me with Susan's excellent tutoridge. So if you are considering restarting your driving lessons or if you are thinking of starting driving lessons, l highly recommend you go with Susan to succeed, l did.

Thank you Susan."

I was very hasty when starting but having such a calm, good listening instructor who will answer any question (silly or not) really makes you feel at ease, especially when you can have fun at the same time without it all being daunting. I could not have done it without you and I would recommend Susan to everyone I know with no hesitation! :)"

"Before driving with Sue, I had 2 previous driving instructors and had quit due to my nerves. Sue was so patient and made the whole process 100% less daunting. She made each lesson fun but was also strict when she needed to be and I'll forever hear her voice in my head when I'm driving... I honestly never thought I would actually pass and her help and dedication made this possible. Thank you so much Sue! I will wholeheartedly miss our lessons :) xxx"

Unlike with previous driving instructors I actually looked forward to my lessons with Sue, she's great at making you feel comfortable and confident as well as careful and cautious, rightly so!

I was doing driving lessons before with another instructor but didn't feel comfortable driving in my lessons so I lost my confidence and stopped learning for a couple of years and then a friend of mine recommended Sue so I decided to take up lessons again and it was the best choice. Sue is patient and calm and helped me get my confidence back when driving. I passed my driving test last Saturday with only 5 minors and I'm so happy now I have my licence, highly recommend!"

Whenever we learnt something new, Sue would give a very clear and coherent explanation to ensure that I understood all the necessary details, even if this meant drawing a map to allow me to visualise the roads we would be driving on. She was always willing to explain things again and answer any questions that I had. As well as just being good company, learning to drive with Sue was a very enjoyable experience. Thank you!"

It took me a couple of tries to get through the test but she gave me the skills and confidence to keep going. She has really made me feel proud of what I have achieved.

"There aren’t enough words to explain how much of an amazing instructor Susan Hanley is.

From her enjoyable lessons, to her informative explanations, can-do attitude and flexibility (especially with my crazy schedule), Susan has been the best instructor I could have ever had.

To pass my test FIRST TIME, with under 30hours of lessons is a testament to how much of a great teacher Susan is.

Susan is a fun, friendly and personable woman, who puts all of her effort into her students to make sure that they are the best they can possibly be.

She corrects without condemnation, and encourages with honesty and truthfulness; she is by far a genuinely natural teacher who only has your best interests at heart.

If there’s any driving instructor I would recommend whole-heartedly, it would without a doubt be Susan."

After driving for 10 years at my home-country on a different side of the road I was afraid that I will never be able to pass a test here. Thanks to Susan I passed my driving test at first attempt! During our lessons she was very professional and patient. Her explanations and techniques were very useful and easy to understand. She is also very easy-going, supportive and has a great sense of humour (which is handy when you are super stressed). I think, anyone who wants to get UK driving licence or needs a refreshment course will benefit greatly from Susan’s lessons."

She has a very logical teaching approach, so things sink in quickly and stay with you. Sue will not only teach you what you need to pass but also how to be a good driver.

The first Instructor I had shouted a lot, making me feel like I was useless. I decided to look for another Instructor. I felt very comfortable with Susan, she made me feel at ease. She was always calm in her approach which I responded to better.

I wasn't used to roundabouts, she took my fear of them away quite quickly. I got used to driving on the opposite side quite quickly too. A calm and patient Instructor is what's needed, Susan was all of that. She was great company too;)."

As soon as I met Sue I felt at ease and stopped worrying about my previous attempts. She's friendly and patient and always made the lessons enjoyable. I always felt she explained things to me in a way that I could understand and gave me the chance to develop in my own way. She was always honest with me about my abilities too which I appreciated. She's really flexible which was good for me and my childcare issues. It took me fewer lessons then I expected to pass too. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn to drive and I'm quite sad that my lessons have finished!"

14th Jan 2016

"To pass my Driving Test with 0 FAULTS is the best testament any teacher can ask for and shows how good your teacher is. All the hard work has paid off, hooray!!!!!!. Susan was introduced to me by a friend. I liked her from the very first day we met. She meet me with a smile, was on time, very professional but friendly and took time to explain the basics of driving and what to expect. I learn't a lot even from the very first day. I like things to be done systematically and efficiently but not too slow and Susan was like that too. She never made me panic or uncomfortable. She took time to explain my faults and corrected them and she always made good remarks when I did something well which was a confidence booster. She always scheduled lessons around my busy schedule and does not charge a penny more than the lessons offered which is a sign of a person with integrity. She arrived at every lesson with a smile and enthusiasm and never showed any sign of tiredness even when she said she was tired or haven't eaten the whole day.

Thank you for your support, encouragement and vote of confidence over the months we spent together. I really enjoyed our lessons. Hope you always have more pupils to teach than you can even handle because you are committed to your job and to helping your students become excellent drivers. God richly bless you. Keep smiling Susan"

"If there would be any instructor that I would whole-heartedly recommend, it would be Susan.

Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Susan for all of the help she has given me over the past few months. I could never have gotten to such a standard to be able to pass first time with only 3 minors without her!

Susan’s standard of teaching was immensely high, and the lessons were deeply informative but also enjoyable and motivational. I learnt something new every lesson, and I never felt uncomfortable or stressed. Susan was very patient, kind and understanding, and she was able to cater around my hectic timetable!! For the lessons leading up to the test, the mock tests were very useful into showing me my errors and made me prepared and feel confident for the practical test.

Susan always noted down the things we had covered that lesson and what I had achieved or where I had made mistakes, which was extremely useful, because it meant that the following lesson, we would work on the problems. Driving was enjoyable for me, even the dreaded manoeuvres, and Susan always explained things with such detail.

We worked hard and in the end, all of the effort paid off. Thanks again Susan for helping me pass my test and making driving enjoyable! It was a privilege and I still can’t believe I passed first time! I will miss our lessons but I wish you the best of luck for the future. Julia xx"

"I passed my driving test when I was 16 and living in South Africa but then immigrated to England in 2002 and have never had the need to drive as I’ve always lived in Central London and if I’m honest I was really scared to drive in London as the roads are far to narrow!! I loved driving but as I didn’t have the need to drive I’d let my licence expire. I then moved outside of London and also missed driving and getting to places without having to get on a train or a bus – that freedom you have when you are in your own car. I started doing some research in finding an instructor in the area I was living in. At first found a driving school before coming to Sue but as soon as I’ve finished my test drive to find out how many lessons I would need I found that the instructor just did not suite me and my search continued. I found Sue’s website and was impressed about what her students said about her and thought I would give her a bell and take it from there. From our very first encounter I liked Sue and we got on well. Sue is a very professional and patient instructor. She has the ability to adapt to her students needs and will help them learn to drive in a way that is comfortable for them but also safe – she would not lead you astray. Not only is Sue a brilliant instructor she is an amazing person and friend, someone you can trust. Your lessons with her are very informative and you will find it really easy to drive with her. Sue is not in it for the money like most driving schools, she genuinely cares about her students and that is a rarity. I would not have been able to get my licence without Sue’s help! So if you are looking for a patient and professional instructor then Sue is your women to go to! Thanks again Sue. Zelda"

I definitely recommend Sue to anybody wanting to become a skilled and safe driver, no matter your level, as she is very capable of adapting to your abilities and helping you to advance them. You will really enjoy lessons with Sue; she has a positive and bright personality and is a very accomplished driver whose teaching methods are supportive, knowledgeable and enjoyable. Every lesson I learnt something new. Sue is very observant, even down to the tiniest details, and has a great teaching approach, especially in terms of questioning any mistakes I would make, which forced me to think about my actions, and in turn make me learn from my mishaps. Anything I didn't know or understand, she was able to explain it to me in a way that was easy to understand. I admire Sue's passion for her students and the way she was always patient and had full confidence in my skills, even when I didn't have any confidence in myself. I will forever be grateful to her for teaching me invaluable lessons and being a lovely friend in general. You will pass knowing that you have been taught everything you possibly can, by one of the very best instructors.

Thank you so much Sue, I will really miss you! x"

She has the time to go through all the lessons in details for you to understand. She will make sure you understand fully your lessons before she will advise you to book your practical test. Because of this, your probability of passing your practical test at first attempt is very high as this has happened to most of her students.

I strongly recommend anyone who wants to drive to go to Susan and you will never regret you did."

Right from the start, Sue's warm heart and fantastic sense of humour made every lesson a joy. I came into this with some nerves being an older driver, but she put me at ease immediately.

What sets Sue apart is her ability to tailor lessons to fit your needs. She never misses a thing and patiently adapts her teaching to what works best for you. She's the kind of instructor who can make even the trickiest driving manoeuvres feel manageable.

I recently passed my driving test with flying colours on my first go, and it's all thanks to Sue. She didn't just teach me how to drive; she instilled confidence in me, and I now genuinely enjoy being on the road.

So, if you're looking for someone who will go the extra mile to ensure your success, Sue is the one. Thank you, Sue, for being an incredible teacher and a wonderful friend!

Her consistent vigilance, her warm approach, her admirable patience, and her firm teaching all made sure I knew exactly everything I needed to know to drive on London’s tricky roads. Sue always sent any helpful notes after lessons, and forwarded links to videos that were useful, as well as sending videos of her own explaining/showing things covered in our lessons. She’s a wonderful conversationalist, and a calming presence to have in the car with you if you’re anxious/nervous in any way. I am a very confident driver thanks to her, and I will be hearing her knowledgable voice in the back of my mind for years to come as I continue my driving journey."

Congratulations Meredith!!

“I couldn’t have hoped for a better instructor than Susan, I was apprehensive initially and was so immediately put at ease that I knew I was with the right person. Susan is extremely knowledgable and has a very flexible yet thorough approach to teaching, she is kind and made the effort to really get to know me and I how I learn. She made the lessons fun, and focussed on increasing my confidence and skills as well as passing the test. I could not recommend her more highly, and will genuinely miss my lessons!”

"Before I started learning with Susan I felt quite anxious due to having a bad experience with a previous instructor and through luck and perhaps Destiny I came across Susan’s car whilst making my way in a chicken shop 😂.

When I started learning with Susan I felt immediately at ease, she is very nurturing and any fault I made which was inevitable whilst learning how to drive Susan would explain thoroughly on how to improve from repeating those faults which was refreshing.

Whenever I spoke about my driving lessons to my friends I would refer to her as “the mother of driving” because as I said before she’s really nurturing and patient which was critical to my success passing the first time with just one fault.

I would highly recommend Susan to anybody who is seeking a driving instructor because you will definitely succeed with her if you’re willing to put the time in.

Susan thank you so much for your patience, flexibility, understanding, and nurturing nature because it made the whole process of learning how to drive easier. (The list of compliments can be ongoing here!)

I really enjoyed our journey together with my driving lessons with you.

Thank you

"I highly recommend Sue, she is an excellent instructor. Her personable nature made lessons something I looked forward to.

I was extremely nervous when I began my lessons with her, but she was very patient and made me feel comfortable and confident in my driving skills.

Her ability to teach both the basic and advanced driving skills in a way I could easily understand and translate into driving in the car meant I approached my test with confidence and have become an assured safe driver. I could not have done it without her.

I will miss my lessons with her.

"From the first lesson to the last Susan has been an amazing instructor throughout. Susan’s unique teaching style allowed me to feel extremely comfortable behind the wheel and gave me confidence in which other driving instructors couldn’t. Lessons were informative, yet practical, and a laugh was always guaranteed. I made many mistakes whilst driving but no matter how big or small Susan always made me understand and learn from my mistakes, After passing my driving test I can see now why all our previous lessons running up to my test had prepared me so well. AND NOT ONLY DID I GAIN MY LICENCE, BUT I ALSO GAINED A FRIEND!

I cannot stress how grateful I am to you Susan for everything you have done!! I will be recommending you to everyone I know.

Thanks again,"

I have learnt so much from Susan and it has built up my confidence to drive safely on the road.

"Susan is a wonderful instructor, so calm, patient and knowledgeable about driving. Susan would never get angry or patronise me like previous instructors. She made me feel very comfortable from the start. She picked up on my bad habits and worked hard to fix them. I enjoyed my lessons with her and am going to miss her. Susan was so supportive and gave me a confidence boost when I doubted myself. She would never put me down, always letting me know the things I was doing well, as well as things I needed to improve on. She has given me a greater understanding of driving and the daunting busy roads of Croydon. I can't thank Susan enough for the energy and persistence she put in me to get me to pass my test. I would highly recommend her to everyone, she is so smart and down to earth and I could not have done it without her. xx" Thanks, Chloe

"I passed my driving test 12 years ago as a very nervous 17 year old, but hadn’t really driven since. I wanted to start driving again but was quite worried about it, especially on busy London roads. After a phone call with Sue, where she put me completely at ease, we agreed to have some refresher lessons to see how I felt. Sue allowed me to go at my own pace, and we concentrated on the areas of my choosing such as busy roads and parking, which really helped re-build my confidence and skills. Sue is extremely patient and I felt like the lessons were a good balance between explaining things and trying them out. After 5 lessons I now have the confidence to be able to drive again, thanks Susan!

She instantly put me at ease and her lessons are planned to build confidence and skills at your own pace. I felt completely safe in her hands and, having had other instructors in the past, her knowledge and patience are second to none.

She made learning to drive a fun experience and one that I wanted to strive for and achieve and with her guidance that’s what I was able to do.

Although most of the time i was wary, she pushed me and kept me going and never gets angry, if you do something wrong she just tells you what to do next time.

I always felt safe in the car with sue and I'd recommend her to anyone. I can't thank sue enough for helping me pass first time and wish her good luck on her endeavors with her other students."

"I was incredibly nervous when I first started learning to drive. For a while I panicked every time there was another vehicle on the road..." There's a CAR!!!", " a LORRY!!", "a RUBBISH TRUCK!! What do I do?!" Fortunately Susan was great at calming me down and talking me through the situation, whatever it was. I also hated going fast, and would have happily stayed forever in second gear without Susan's gentle prompting. Then we came to deal with roundabouts..... oh my word! Again I just panicked and wanted to wait until everyone else had left the roundabout before I would even think about entering it. Susan was incredibly patient and positive until things finally started to click.

I would recommend Susan to anyone thinking of learning to drive. She is a great teacher, patient, supportive and wonderful at helping students to safely build confidence. I will really miss our friendly chats and I'm sure I will still be imagining her calm suggestions and advice whilst I am driving years from now. Thank you for everything.

"Sue, firstly, I would like to say, thank you so much for believing and having a lot of faith in me! When I first met Sue for my first lessons, I did not feel confident about driving in general and felt overwhelmed of the whole process.

Given these feelings, she immediately put me at ease quite quickly with her calm manner and gently probing questions.

Overall, I found Sue impressively patient, her attention to detail and teaching quite thorough. I still picture her visual drawings showing for example, an approach to a daunting roundabout and how we would be proceeding towards it. These aides were so helpful being a visual person. Remember those moments Sue?

I greatly believe that her methods of teaching, the mock tests and the expectancies, prepared me for the big day!! I was delighted to pass the first time!

For anyone thinking of embarking on their Practical Test, do get in touch with Sue. I highly recommend her, as she is what we seek out for in a driving instructor: Very professional, supportive, friendly, flexible and patient!!

I must also add that you were a brilliant listener, I shall miss our jovial moments and your gorgeous laughter!

Thank you once again. All the best for the future and see you on the school run!!"

I started driving with Susan from scratch and she really made me feel at ease on the road. I never felt any pressure in making my mistakes or asking my silly questions during my lessons because Susan always encouraged me and she would never say "no that's wrong".

Susan would simply show me the correct way and explain how important my mistakes are so i can overcome them and be a good driver she knew i could be. From having my driving test i can see how all our previous lessons running up to my test had prepared me so well for the big day.

Thanks again Susan, i shall strongly recommend you to everyone"

Character wise she's a cheerful, chatty lady and very easy to feel comfortable around.

Due to the number of students who have passed, she has a unique incite on what is expected in order for you to be successful; and ensures all students (including myself with much difficulty) cover these issues fluently/correctly.

She's extremely vigilant for small errors and patient to ensure that any of these are not performed as you progress your skills.

I would definitely recommend her for beginners or even students who have been taught by other teachers (rating: 10/10)

We have had some hilarious times together and as much as I try to stir her to the dark side with my (sometimes crude) sense of humour she always remains professional and focused with an intent to get you to achieve more!!

I will never forget her unique teaching of parallel parking and will use that for the rest if my life!

I was very lucky that I was able to have her as my instructor, she made all the lessons easier and more enjoyable. I am very impressed by her knowledge, professionalism and lovely personality.

She has been very supportive throughout all the lessons and always believed in me whenever I lose my confident. A few weeks into my lessons, I felt a lot more confident driving on those busy roads. Sue knew very well about my progress, strengths and weakness. She was so supportive when I took my test and was always there for me, like a friend and family.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sue for all the help and support!"

The best piece of advice I was given was "it's all about finding the right instructor" and so I didn't want to leave it to chance by choosing one of the bigger driving schools.

I found Sue's website, read the testimonials and decided to get in contact, and I found that all the good stuff written here is true! From the first lesson Sue instinctively set the pace of learning at just the right level, and with her support and encouragement I found myself not only improving rapidly but actually enjoying driving! By the time I came to take the test I felt well prepared and ready, and it was such a great feeling to pass.

Sue was with me every step of the way, so if you are looking to start or continue learning with someone who really cares, give Sue a call!"

My mother tells me that after a brief chat with Susan, who by the way was picking up a student, kindly gave my mother her details and the rest is history .

I met Susan for my first lesson and I knew instantly that she would be the perfect instructor . I have loved taking driving lessons with Susan which allowed me to grow a bond with her as she believed in me and gave me the courage and supported me whenever I felt a little challenged. I am so glad that I was able to meet Susan, not only as an instructor but now has a friend. I value the experience which will remain with me forever.

I would like to take the opportunity for thanking Susan for her professionalism, patience and believing in my abilities. Because of my positive experience I have recommended Susan to family and friends who too are enjoying their lessons with Susan. Finally I am proud of my achievement and owe this to Susan's hard work and dedication. Thank you so much Susan.

"Susan was a great instructor. She got me through my driving instruction and eventually to test, over an 18 month period when I had a major ankle operation, a relationship break up and a house move! She kept me smiling and kept me driving. Her patient and understanding temperament meant she really helped me to focus and was absolutely crucial in helping me break down the technical elements of driving that I found confusing, in a way that made it easy. Having experience of driving from ten years earlier (Most of which I had completely forgotten), Susan knew the right approach for me and was always consultative on what I felt I needed to improve. She built my confidence so I was 100% ready to pass and get my much coveted license, despite my initial fail. I can honestly say that Susan was crucial in helping me pass my test. I’ve recommended her to friends and I can’t wait to get back in the car with Susan on a motorway lesson. I am 100% confident she will help me on the next stage of my driving journey and i can assure you if your reading this, she’s a brilliant instructor and you would be in excellent hands if you decide to have lessons with Susan.

After not taking lessons for quite some time and feeling weary of learning again, Sue’s relaxed yet experienced manner was perfect for me. My nerves were calmed and my learning experience was great fun, I felt confident going into my test and Susan ensured I was definitely more than capable in all aspects of my test.

Although I had some experience already, Sue was able to help me build on my existing knowledge by an enormous amount and quickly identify where I was going wrong, at each step able to tackle the issues in a way to make sure that I am aware of my mistakes and gave me the skills to resolve them. The fact that I had picked up bad habits before my lessons with Sue wasn’t a problem, Susan’s patience and teaching style taught me so much and was always more than helpful when I had a problem. Sue's experience made learning so easy, and more importantly within my test Sue's handy driving tips were easy to remember in my manoeuvre!

In short Sue is an exceptionally great instructor and I loved every lesson! Would definitely recommend to family and friends!

Its all in the name Suceed with Susan'. You'll definately pass your driving test if you choose to carry out your driving lessons with Susan. She is the most amazing, kind and thorough driving instructor! Not once did i ever feel nervous when i was in the car with her, whenever i became frustrated with a manouvere she would tell me that I could do anything i put my mind to. In all honesty i would avoid all the big well known companies and use an independent driving instructor like Susan because she familarises herself in your strengths and weaknesses and then works with you on anything that needs improving. I strongly recommend Susan's motoring school ; learn with Susan and you won't be a learner for long! Thank you so much Susan, you're simply the best, I'm so glad I chose to use you, i couldn't have passed without you! Love George x

I was very nervous when i drive on the major roads but Sue has been very supportive in boosting my confidence level. She understood my learn needs and planned lessons accordingly and always gave me feedback which was very helpful for me to overcome my mistakes which i did during my lessons.

Sue is so passionate about teaching and passing on her skills to others she is been such a inspriation for me and i have learned to enjoy my lesson and driving. I have passed my driving test at first attempt and i am ever so happy, thank you so much Sue, could not have done it without you!!!!

After receiving mixed feedback about these schools, I decided to look for an independent driving instructor. That's when I found Susan and our journey to success began.

Our first lesson was rather interesting, as we got to know each other and set targets for the future. With time, everything else came as predicted. Susan is a really good teacher and funny too. This only made lessons easier as it felt like we did it together.

I really suggest taking lessons with Susan as she is simply the best around."

She has been extremely patient with me and was excellent at monitoring my progress whilst tailoring my lessons to suit me personally. There were times when I would get frustrated with some mistakes I would be making but Sue was exceptional at helping me understand and overcome these problems.

Overall from her you can expect a friendly person who comes across clearly and in great detail whilst making your lessons enjoyable.

Without Sues guidance I would not have passed my test in the manner I did (let alone first time!) and for this I am extremely grateful.

She has been a great instructor, helping me learn how to drive well over the duration of the time I've been with her.

She has been very patient with me as I have seen doing this job is not easy. She has done a fantastic job with me and I would fully recommend anyone wanting to do their practical driving with her.

Sue corrected any mistakes I made, questioned me as to why I made that mistake to therefore fix it, answered any queries that I may have had and made it very easy for me to talk to her. I'm extremely glad I chose Sue as my instructor and will definitely recommend her to anyone!

She expresses a great deal of compassion towards her pupils, compared to some instructors who are financially motivated and orientated.

I passed my test on the second attempt, Susan consistantly remained supportive and encouraged me to give it another go which is why i am a successful driver today.

She has not only been an instructor, she is also a friend and i will be keeping in contact with her.

I would highly recommend her services; she is flexible, affordable and convenient."

I met Susan via a fellow colleague who gave her so much accolade. She told me specifically that she was a good instructor who in the last year had a good pass rate of more than 80 percent. To me that was pretty impressive but I had my doubts like everyone would.

I rang her up almost immediately and we talked extensively and arranged our first meeting. True to the words spoken about Her she was indeed a pleasant woman. A woman you can feel comfortable with and above all I saw in her a great instructor.

The first meeting was basically a test, to ascertain how comfortable I felt with her considering the fact that I was not tied down to anything yet. I must say she passed gloriously. That started a wonderful, eventful and successful journey.

She instructed that I book my test first and foremost and that gave us a goal, and direction. I must say that paid off. She had a way of asking some motherly questions when she noticed some things were wrong and she did not expect that from you. Such as" Ade why did you do that" she laughed really hard when i told her my observation. That was how close we were. She never came late for any lessons and would always send you a text to remind you. She gave me that ease and confidence I needed to tackle the test full on.

I would say that I can and will recommend Susan to anyone. I have blown her trumpet to anyone that cares to listen. Just like her company says "Succeed with Susan" I guarantee you that if you are serious, willing and completely attentive, you will definitely smile at the end of your test just as I did.

Yours truly

"I would like to thank Sue Hanley who is a fantastic instructor. I found Sue to be a very competent, patient, an encouraging instructor, with a brilliant sense of humour which really made me calm when I needed to be. I didn't think I would ever pass my test and was convinced I would be having lessons for months to come, but thankfully I passed on Friday 18th May 2012 and still cannot believe it! I could have not done it without her, so thanks once again Sue!

I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive. You cannot get a better instructor than Sue in the area!”

"I had been driving with Susan Hanley for approximately 6 weeks, through recommendation.

On initially starting my driving lessons I was quite nervous, Susan had put me at ease making me feel very comfortable. I had found her to be patient and her instructions to be clear and concise. This in turn allowed me to build upon my confidence.

I have had other driving instructors in the past, but Susan is the one I felt most comfortable with, and I believe that this is not just down to her approachable personality, but also her level off professionalism, experience and knowledge.

I have already passed her details onto to some of my friends, and would definately continue to recommend her to new and experienced drivers.

Susan is a fantastic instructor, and I thank her greatly for providing me with the encouragement, skills and knowledge needed in order to pass my test".

"I could not wish for a better driving instructor and would recommend Susan to everyone! When I started having driving lessons with her as a beginner I had no confidence and was very nervous. But already after our first lessons, I began to enjoy learning. Susan gave me a lot of motivation and confidence. I was looking forward to every lesson because of Susan`s great personality, positive attitude and constant encouragement.

Susan is very patient and calm, and she is always ready and happy to explain the things which I didn`t understand or forgot. Susan keeps the notes for every pupil and could always remember what we did during our previous lesson, we could always discuss the progress of every lesson. She is a very professional, punctual, reliable and flexible instructor with brilliant teaching skills!

She made me believe that I could pass my test and be a good driver!

Thank you Susan!"

"A word cannot express how grateful I was on that day when the driving examiner told me I have passed my test with just 8 lessons with Susan. Choosing Susan’s School of Motoring was the best ever decision I have ever made in life. I saw Susan one morning going to church and something pushed me to cross over the road to go and talk to her. I got Susan's contact and started doing some few lessons with her, and on that bright morning day on 22 December, Susan took me to my success in driving.

Susan is a very professional driving instructor with strong confidence in all her learners she helped me all the way through till I passed my test. I will strongly recommend Susan’s School of motoring to anyone who is looking to pass their practical driving test the first time. I am so glad I found you Susan to be my driving instructor to take me to my success.

Thank you so much Susan, Dennis."

"Sue is a brilliant instructor who is very easy going and funny, which helped me to relax everytime i got i the car, as i was a nervous wreck. She is very calm and patient, she had so much faith in my ability to drive it helped me gain so much confidence in myself. I have learnt so much from sue and i have enjoyed every lesson we have had. Would definitely recommend sue to anyone who wants to learn to drive, as i doubt you find a better instructor than her"

"As a nervous learner driver Susan makes me feel at ease and a confident driver. She is calm and fun in her lessons putting a smile on my face when i get anxious. She is understanding and accomodates you to the best of her ability.

Her experience and knowledge on the road surpasses any driving instructor i have had, and i've had a few. Susan is the best!"

"With patient but rigorous encouragement throughout our lessons and insightful progress summaries, Susan really helped to build my confidence behind the wheel and ensured that I developed better driving skills in preparation for passing my test.

She is a fantastic instructor and comes highly recommended."

"I passed my driving test over 20 years ago but never had the confidence to continue driving. I have now found myself in a position where i have to drive. I contacted Succeed With Susan, Susan's School of Motoring to ask for her assistance in helping me to gain my confidence and be a good and safe driver.

Succeed with Susan is exactly what the adverts states. Susan has successfully helped me gain my confidence and i thoroughly enjoyed my lessons. Susan makes you feel at ease and articulates everything very clearly.

Susan is extremely patient and will go over aspects that you are not confident with until you have succeeded.

I know that Susan has helped me to be a confident driver because that's her priority".

Maria Clark 29th Nov 2011

"Choosing to learn to drive with Susan was the best decision I have ever made, after having my confidence knocked with another instructor, she has helped me rebuild my confidence on the road with her positive and reassuring attitude. With her help I am well on my way to passing my test and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn to drive."

Hi, my name is Susan Hanley and I am a Grade A fully qualified driving instructor.

Having over 37 years driving experience and successfully completed my training with BSM, I thoroughly enjoy driving and take pride in passing on my skills and knowledge to our future drivers.

Hyundai i20 SE, small and nippy! Susan's School of Motoring

I have a great deal of patience, love working with people and try to make the learning experience fun!

Teaching you how to drive safely is what I do best and I always encourage you to get involved in the lessons so you realise the benefits for yourself.

My aim is for you to leave each lesson having learnt something new, however small it may be! I'll assess you after each lesson and support you every step of the way so that you can pass quickly, safely and hopefully 1st time!

Every pupil is different and has different needs, you can slow down or speed up your learning, I am very understanding and flexible and will tailor your training to suit YOU.

Feel free to call me for a chat, if I can't get to the phone just leave a message and i'll get back to you as soon as I can as I may be out teaching.
