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.!

Amber Buonsenso


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

April Mathie-Dowling


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!

Alex Welstead


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

Johnathan Hirniak


A big thank you to Pete from Duke & Duchess. I passed first time today with just 4 minors. Pete’s relaxed manner put me at ease in all my lessons. He gave me excellent coaching and clear targets during lessons. He prepared me well on test day too keeping me calm and relaxed. I am please to recommend him to my friends ????

Jessica da Silva Cruz


Rich has been an amazing driving instructor. I had two driving instructors prior to Rich (not from Duke & Duchess) and I can 100% say he beats them both by a mile! He has taught me so much, has the patience of a saint and he is funny. He has excellent knowledge of Bedford and what you need to focus on to pass. I am going to be taking pass plus lessons with him too. 🙂 Thank you Rich for helping to make my life so much easier! I will be recommending Rich to any one that needs an instructor!

Katy Kugeniek


Thank you so much Shin for your time, patience and great teaching! I thought driving lessons would be a chore but I always looked forward to our lessons because of your thorough way of teaching and the laughs we had – I will miss chatting about food 🙂 I would highly recommend Shin, he helped me learn from my mistakes and always made me feel at ease. He is an all round excellent instructor and I can’t thank him enough!

My instructor Wendy was absolutely amazing, she was so kind and calm, and helped me overcome my anxiety over driving and tests. She made me feel completely at ease, and never got cross or angry. She took her time with me, and made me feel so much more confident in myself and my abilities. I loved my driving lessons and the chats we would have each week! I can’t recommend Wendy enough! Thank you!!
