Our Promise To You
Learning to drive is a momentous part of anyone’s life, so making sure you get the right driving lessons is very important. You’ll finish each lesson with Duke and Duchess Driving School in Bedford feeling like you’ve learnt loads without emptying your bank account. Our driving instructors are all licensed by the DVSA and use the latest training methods so you’ll feel safe, comfortable and ready to hit the road!
Our driving lessons in Bedford are currently available in throughout Bedfordshire as well as many of the surrounding areas just outside of Bedfordshire. For more details on driving lesson availability in your area, please feel free to call us.
We strive to teach over and above the driving test standard to help you achieve a life skill, not just to pass your test. We aim to give you the knowledge and skills you will need to become a safe and confident driver for life.
We put emphasis on providing a supportive and encouraging environment. You should always feel relaxed in the car, and each week your confidence and ability will grow. When learning to drive, you are going to make mistakes. In fact, making a few mistakes is one of the ways you learn! It is therefore important that you learn to drive with someone who will take the positives from these mistakes, building your confidence which will push you towards passing your test.
See What They Say
I’ve been to 3 instructors in total, 2 of which were nowhere near as brilliant as Colin, he’s polite, patient and knows exactly how to deal with all sorts of situations and nervousness. Passed first time with the help of Colin. Already recommended him to at least 3 of my friends!! Thanks again Colin!!!
David, just wanted to say a BIG thank you as a parent. You made Olivia’s diving lessons fun and she always felt at ease with you. She will miss the banter you both had. As for myself ... after Liv being the 3rd and last child learning to drive - D&D came out on top as instructors. Amazing driving school. So friendly and getting out of bed on a Sunday David to take livs for a spin at 8am !!!!! so she got one more lesson in before her test yesterday is classed in my eyes as a great company that goes the extra mile... for their students. Well done and thanks again. We have a gift for you so see you soon.
Thank you so much Donna for everything you have done for me, you made me feel so calm and you were always so positive in everything I did. You helped me realise that driving is actually a good thing and that it turns out I could do it in the end. Not many people have a way of getting through to me but you certainly did, anyway soppy bit over! Thank you so much; I really appreciate you being so lovely and patient. Take care and thank you for getting me through it, showing me that driving ain’t half bad! Thanks again, love Skye x
Had an amazing driving experience with D&D! My instructor, Harry, was always very encouraging, friendly and patient in every single one of my lessons, and made sure my skills were polished before my test, allowing me to gain confidence in my driving. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Highly recommend Harry as well as Duke and Duchess for driving lessons!
I would like to say a big thanks to Jaz for helping me pass first time last month. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor who was as patient, relaxed and friendly as you, which really helped me gain confidence on the road. Deffo missing driving lessons with you and telling you all my stories. I will always recommend to anyone who wants to start driving.
Had the best experience with Duke and Duchess, huge, huge thank you to Jess who has been such a fantastic teacher! She's such a friendly and warm person and made me feel so relaxed even in my most panicked moments, without her I would not have done it! I will be recommending her to anyone who needs a driving instructor. And we had such a laugh along the way. 10/10 would recommend!! Thank you
What a great instructor. Always accommodating to fit lessons in when it fitted with busy parent lifestyles, (even helped with the school run!). Style of training was friendly but strict (if that makes sense?) always looked at getting the best out of learner in a way that focused on the end result. Very knowledgeable of what examiners looked for and ensuring that once passed safe driving was essential. Can’t thank Julia enough, two of our family passed through her excellent tuition. Would be the first to recommend her. Thank you so so much!
I can’t thank Karl enough for his patience and commitment to helping me succeed in passing my test. I’d highly recommend Karl to any learner drivers. Thanks again!!
Wow, what can I say? Michele you’ve been absolutely amazing! I really couldn’t have done it without you. You’ve been such a great teacher, listener and friend. Thank you so much for everything, and I’ll miss our crazy lessons, they’ve been brilliant. I can’t recommend Duke & Duchess enough!
Neil from Duke and Duchess is an awesome instructor: he was clear and methodical in his teachings, patient when I made mistakes, and his knowledge of the roads and driving are second to none. I had great fun learning how to drive with Neil, particularly due to his sense of humour and the fact that he is so approachable. If you’re struggling to find a great instructor, Neil is your safest bet, and I would highly recommend him.
