Driving Lessons – Weekly

Duke and Duchess Driving School instructors recommend our learners take weekly driving lessons. The most common driving lessons courses consist of One Hour or One Hour and a Half per week.

Our driving instructors take you from the very basics right through to your test. You will learn how to drive and become a successful driver in the quickest way possible.

At The Duke and Duchess Driving School you will learn at your own pace. Driving lessons are structured to suit your needs and tailored to your learning style.

Driving lessons can be booked once or twice per week, allowing you to spread your driving course over a timescale convenient to you.

In the first lesson, you will be given access to the Theory Test Pro which is everything you need to help you pass the theory test.

Our driving instructors aim to give you the best driving lesson experience and be with you every step of the way.

Driving Lessons – Semi-intensive Courses

A semi intensive driving course is a type of intensive driving course which takes place over 3 or 4 weeks. Our driving instructors recommend this type of driving lessons to learners who have passed their theory test (or at least have it booked).

The Duke and Duchess semi intensive driving courses are great if you want to learn to drive over a shorter period of time. Our learners can book between 2 – 5 hours driving lessons a day, depending on your availability. This driving course is a great idea if you are on a time constraint.

If you think you would like to do an intensive driving course we recommend you enquire early to secure your lessons due to instructor availability.

Pass Plus Driving Course

Pass Plus advanced driving course is a six hour driving course designed for furthering your driving skills and experience once you have passed your practical test.

The Pass Plus course has six core modules, helping you become a more confident and experienced driver.

  • The Pass Plus Scheme modules are:
  • Town driving
  • Country driving
  • All weather driving
  • Night time driving
  • Dual carriageways
  • Motorways

Successful completion of the Pass Plus course will reward you with greater confidence when dealing with driving independently, as well as some insurance companies offering discounts on premiums.


Refresher Driving Lessons

There are many instances where a driver seeks out a refresher driving course. These lessons are ideal for drivers who have passed their practical test but have taken a break from driving.

The refresher driving courses can also help experienced drivers to become safer on the roads and break out of bad driving habits. They are also ideal for drivers returning to the UK after living (and driving) abroad.

The Duke and Duchess refresher driving lessons are ideal for drivers who are looking to brush up on their skills and build confidence, no matter the reason.

Motorway Driving Lessons

Motorways can feel daunting especially the first time you need to use one. Our motorway lessons can help to boost your confidence, and help you to keep yourself safe.

The law changed on June 4th 2018 allowing learner drivers to drive on motorways. This is voluntary and motorways do not form part of the learner test. You are only allowed to drive on a motorway as a learner with a fully qualified driving instructor and in a dual controlled car.

  • 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.
