Elite Driving Solutions was founded in 2017 by Craig Cowell and Pete Glass in Thanet, Kent. Both Craig and Pete were already established Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) in the area, but wanted to introduce a local company that students can depend on. Elite Driving Solutions' mission is to deliver a friendly, professional service for a reasonable price, with a focus on skill development, in a safe and friendly environment.


All of our instructors are DBS checked and fully qualified Driving Instructors who undergo regular Standards Checks and are DVSA ADI registered and are committed to the DVSA's Driving Instructor Code of Practice and to completing Continuing Professional Development.

If you have questions or concerns, please...
