Driving Lessons Following Coronavirus Outbreak
Driving Lessons Recommenced On April 12th 2021
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused major problems throughout many aspects of peoples regular day to day lives, and driving lessons have been no exception to this.
Following a long period of lessons being prohibited, they finally recommenced on April 12th 2021, with driving tests following shortly after on April 22nd 2021.
As a result of such a large period of inactivity, this has led to a large impact on our ability to offer places to new students at Duke & Duchess Driving School
Are lessons available to be booked?
As we have tried our hardest to fit as many of our existing students in as possible, we only have limited spaces available with both our manual and automatic instructors,
If you wish to enquire further about lesson availability, you can do so by sending us a message through our contact page which can be located here.
Whilst we endeavour to offer lessons as soon as possible, we do still have some students who are on a waiting list. If we are not able to offer lessons to you immediately, please feel free to enquire about being added to our waiting list so we can hopefully offer you lessons in the future.
Can we add more people to our waiting list?
Whilst we will always endeavour to provide lessons to anyone who enquires with us, the situation at the moment is that we simply do not know when people will be able to commence lessons with us due to the large number of students already waiting.
Please be aware that the waiting period for lessons required during evenings or weekends will be even longer than for lessons available during weekdays.
If you still wish to submit an enquiry form, you may do so here.
Please keep in mind that being on our waiting list will not be a guarantee of lessons becoming available quickly as we try to work through it fairly, based on the order for which students were added to it.
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.
