Motorcycle and Driving Instructors
Daniel Khan, Instructor Class 5/7. GLP Certified, GLP Certified. First Aid. Daniel has had his Driving Instructors License for over 20 years and has not only just helped many new drivers succeed in passing the driving test, but also to build a foundation for them to continue to grow into excellent drivers. He truly enjoys working with students and watching them learn the skills it takes to become a great driver. When he is not instructing or spending time with his wife and two young children, Daniel enjoys snowboarding, longboarding and cycling around Kelowna on his old school BMX cruiser.
Bruce Parker, Instructor Class 6/8. MSA Officer. GLP Certified. First Aid. Bruce earned the nickname of “Taking Care of Business Bruce” because he’s always busy at KDSC, whether it’s teaching students, renovating our building, or wrenching the bikes and keeping them in top form! A former Harley mechanic in Switzerland, Bruce commutes to KDSC every day from Summerland on his 1972 BMW 750 airhead in order to help get new riders on the road safely. Bruce enjoys doing anything outdoors (camping, hiking, kayaking, and skiing) and looks forward to long road trips with his wife Maddy. According to Bruce, “Motorcycling has kept me sane!”
Rick Elliott, Instructor class 6/8. First Aid. Rick has been riding for 10 years and believes that any time you can take a lesson to improve your riding skills – you should go for it! He moved to Kelowna in 2014 and one Sunday passed the KDSC training lessons at the Farmer’s Market and stopped to ask about becoming a riding instructor. The rest is history. He completed his training in 2016, and says, “I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to teach and share in the enthusiasm and eagerness of the students as they master the art of proper motorcycle riding. KDSC has an excellent program and very good instructors!” Rick enjoys the outdoors – camping, kayaking, bicycling, skiing and believes that you couldn’t ask for a better place than the Okanagan! He recently traded his BMW for a Honda CB 500X to take advantage of the local secondary roads.
