  • I would recommend this business

Learning to drive with Daren was a pleasure. He was always there to answer any questions and give reassurance, he made sure i was test ready for me to pass first time, he helped me build my confidence up and he was always brilliant at keeping my nerves down and staying calm. I Highly recommend Daren if learning to drive, I couldn't of passed first time in the snow without everything he taught me. Thank you so much!

I was really nervous about learning to drive and Daren was the perfect instructor for me - calm, patient, great at explaining how to do everything and brilliant company along the way. I’m so thrilled to have passed my driving test today with only one minor and I can’t thank Daren enough for all his help and support along the way.
I’m looking forward to starting the Pass Plus course next week!

Customer Testimonials

Thank you Daren for being such a great instructor!! I would definitely recommend this driving school to anyone wishing to pass in good time for a good price! My time and money was well spent.

Brilliant driving instructor, recommend anyone wanting to drive to go with diamonds. thanks to Daren I have passed!! Brilliant at his job

I had a rollercoaster of a journey learning to drive around university and Darren managed to turn a negative experience into something positive. He was able to improve my confidence as a driver within a short time frame. I would defiantly recommend and look forward to potentially doing the pass plus with Darren in the future.

Daren is a highly competent instructor, and was able to get me to the required standard in a very short space of time. His car is great to drive, his style is friendly and very informative, and he encourages and constructively criticises in equal measure. Definitely worth my money!

I decided to use Diamond Driving after having many tests and struggling to pass. The service I received was excellent, the car was great to drive in and I learnt lots of new things that I never knew before! Aswell as that I finally passed my test within a matter of a few lessons! I would highly recommend using Diamond Driving. 5 stars

From Our Website

We aim to help you drive independently and pass your driving test to give you the freedom you deserve. This will be done in a patient, friendly but professional manner. Learning to drive can be a daunting experience, but with our carefully structured lessons your confidence will soon grow. Diamond Driving School is an independent school based in Bedford, it is owned and run by your instructor Daren, the company was formed in 2010 after Daren passed all three of the qualifying tests 1st time, after approximately a years training.

My standard lesson length is 90 minutes, I find this to be the most productive and long term should save you money, however I will do 1 and 2 hour lessons if required. You will be taught using the latest technology, with video briefings on an iPad, Briefings can be emailed to pupils upon request. A free lesson report will be filled in during every lesson, helping both you and your instructor to enhance learning. Although I follow the driving standards agency (DVSA) syllabus I will tailor the lessons to your individual needs.

It is recommended that you apply for your theory test at the same time you start your practical lessons, waiting times may vary so it is best to start preparing as soon as possible, To prepare for your theory test you should study various materials, when you start to learn to drive with Diamond Driving School I will register you on the Theory Test Pro web site, from here you will be able to study an electronic version of the highway code and take both multiple choice exams and take hazard perception tests, all the questions come from the official DVSA question bank, so will be invaluable training for you.
