When it comes to moving on to higher speed roads, you’ll get used to dual carriageway driving on the ideally located A14. Many of the Kettering test routes include this road so you’ll be familiar with the road when it comes to doing your test.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.
