Supercharge Your Driving Skills

The Garden City has certainly been our friend – Christchurch and Rangiora is where it all started for 2 Drive Safe! We have already invested heavily into Canterbury, working with thousands of you (through driving lessons, the defensive driving course, and various motorcycle courses) to become safer riders and drivers and make our roads safer. You are incredibly important to us!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to identify and rigorously train two new instructors to the 2 Drive Safe standard. Our standard is the best and the results speak for themselves – we have a nearly 100% pass rate for both restricted & full car licence tests for those who have taken driving lessons with us. Only by raising the standard can we better serve Canterbury and further our efforts to reduce crashes on New Zealand roads.

So, it is with great excitement that we can now introduce Duncan to you!

Duncan Seed

Duncan Seed
Lead Instructor

Duncan was born in 1967 and comes all the way from Lancashire in England. When learning to drive in the 80′s he was inspired by his own driving instructor to enjoy driving, be safe and keep learning new things. He learned to ride in the 90′s, on a Kawasaki ER5, and absolutely loved it! This later inspired him to undergo the gruelling task of becoming an approved driving instructor in the UK – which he passed with flying colours in 2001.

After moving to New Zealand in 2006, Duncan qualified as an NZTA driving instructor and approved course provider. Along the way he gained myriads of experience including: commercial training & licensing, becoming an ITO approved assessor and writer of NZQA unit standards, becoming an IAM member and examiner (for cars & bikes), and recently served as the National Vice President for New Zealand Institute of Driver Educators. So basically, he’s pretty clued up!

Duncan is an expert of explaining the ‘why do’ and showing the ‘how to’ of driving and riding. Training with him is always a fun and rewarding experience, and will build your understanding and skills so you are able to get the best from your bike or car, and New Zealand’s awesome roads.

Christchurch Driving Lessons

We pride ourselves on tailoring our training to meet your individual needs, whilst still having structure to lessons. We will work with you to set targets for your driving needs and always give actionable feedback at the end of each lesson. If parents or caregivers are paying for lessons we are happy for them to talk to us. Simon will guide you on how to get the most out of supervised practice times between lessons. Sometimes we even take them out for a spell so they can help you achieve your goals quicker!


“Very good value for money and top quality training which enabled me to pass first time. 2 Drive Safe are supportive, very thorough, prepared to go the extra mile for their students and ensure they get every assistance possible to pass.”


“Joshua sat and passed his restricted driving test yesterday! Many thanks for your help. He will be doing the defensive driving course, and his motorcycle licence with you in the future. “
