Dan is an ex UK Police Motorcyclist and a fully qualified NZTA Approved Driving Instructor based in Otago. 

He is passionate about improving riding standards and will teach you to ride in a way that is not just about passing your Restricted or Full Licence Assessments, but to further improve road safety and enhance the unique pleasure of riding a motorcycle skilfully and defensively. 

Through calm and patient coaching he’s seen hundreds of riders graduate from never having ridden a motorcycle and helped turned them into confident, competent road users. 

Dan was expertly trained by the Police in the UK and has years of experience which he can pass on to you, ensuring the best possible start to your riding career. 

He’s all about rider safety. Through teaching solid handling skills and techniques for a wide range of situations and conditions, Dan hopes to help prevent unwanted road accidents. He’s keen to see more long-term riders brush up on their skill set too, learn some new techniques for unforeseen circumstances and become better life-long riders.
