Kaikoura Instructors & Training

Kaikoura is a stunning seaside settlement located on the east coast of the South Island in the Canterbury region, just north of Christchurch. It is a place where the Southern Alps meet the sea and, because of this, there are many walking tracks up and through the mountains. Kaikoura is a very popular tourist destination, mainly for whale watching (the sperm whale watching is perhaps the best and most developed in the world) and swimming with or near dolphins. Back on land an excellent range of activities awaits visitors, ranging from four wheel motor biking, horse trekking and hunting, to star-gazing, wine tasting or experiencing Maori hospitality.

2 Drive Safe instructors in Kaikoura offer motorcycle training (including One on One Training, Competency Based Training & Assessment, and Ride Forever Courses). Improve your skill level and confidence, and take your riding to the next level with courses suited for all stages of learning.

Duncan Seed

Duncan Seed
Lead Instructor

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.
