Get to know Chris Elwick
I am a local instructor, born and raised in Sunderland. At a young age, I started training in Karate and practiced this for many years. At 10 years old, I successfully achieved my Black belt. As well as Karate, I enjoy going to the gym and cooking - although I don't always go as often as I'd like, and you probably won't see me on Master Chef anytime soon.
I am a big animal lover, especially dogs - I have 3 of my own!
Penny; my first dog, a beautiful Chocolate Labrador, and two handsome French Bulldog boys, Freddie and Roman.
Before training as a Driving Instructor, my background was in management and training. I have always had a passion for working with people and I've always enjoyed training and supporting people of all ages, to achieve their full potential and develop skills and abilities. This passion naturally led me to qualify as an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) in 2021, a job that I love.
I am passionate about using the experience I gained as a trainer, supporting people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures, to learn a life skill that can not only open doors for learners, but change their lives.
If you see me around... give me a wave!
