Mas
Driving Instructor

My name is Mas and I have lived in Colchester majority of my life.  I have been a qualified ADI instructor since 2013, prior to this I used to work in the financial sector. 

Overall, I left that industry to work on teaching as I have always had an interest in cars and driving and believed I could pass this knowledge on. I started Hero Driving School a year after I qualified in 2014. My students were always impressed in my style of teaching. They stated that I have a very relaxed demeanour and I make them feel comfortable during their lessons. I believe my teaching style is very effective hence why I started Hero Driving School as I believe I am able to bring this tried and proven method and have it be delivered by my professional and hardworking colleagues.

At Hero Driving School we only select the best of instructors. They are handpicked by myself because I believe that having the best of the best ensures our students get the best of the best ( which directly relates to our level of reviews on Google, Facebook, YELL & Freeindex to name but a few).

Dan Harwood
Driving Instructor

My name is Danny and I'm 39. I was born and raised in Colchester, Originally from a construction background with many years of experience on the tools.

I have been an ADI for 3 years now. The decision to become a driving Instructor wasn't hard to be honest as I have 22 years of driving experience with many of those years driving throughout the UK and Europe and I wanted to pass my driving knowledge on to others.


As a person I am very calm, relaxed, patient and easy going although I like to have a laugh and be happy, as I find this relaxes my students while they are driving.

Learning to drive for all students can be very stressful and I feel my relaxed attitude to teaching helps put them at ease and safe while they learn to build confidence and the driving skills needed to be safe on the roads on their own.


At Hero Driving School we work together as instructors. Learning from each other, passing knowledge to each other all for the benefit of our students. They are the key to the level of success and reviews Hero's has.

My name is Mark, ever since I learnt to drive I have always had an interest to improve my driving. I passed my Institute of Advanced Motorists exam at just 19 years old. I joined the Metropolitan police at 23 where I qualified as a Class 1 advanced pursuit driver by the age of 29 in 1992. 


I strived to complete other courses, including armoured land rover, towing, off road and police driving assessor City and Guilds in 1995. I retired from police in January 2016 and qualified as a driving instructor in July. By February 2017, I qualified as an Education and Training teacher, where I deliver speed awareness courses for Essex County Council since July. I have also been a Bikeability trainer for children, for Essex Council since 2009. Finally my most recent achievement is the Royal society for prevention of accidents Gold Standard advanced driving qualification which I have completed in April 2018. I believe with all my qualifications it is apparent that I have a passion for teaching driving in a safe, competent and practical manner.
