ADI Helpdesk

Friendly and expert advice on any aspect of driver and rider training, road safety and driving in general

My membership to the DIA shows my commitment to the industry. There are many benefits to being a member but for me, as an independent instructor, it gives me a sense of being part of a 'team'. My membership enables me to keep abreast of industry developments and changes. I have access to informative courses and seminars and to a network of well informed industry professionals. I'd feel quite isolated from the industry if I did not have DIA membership.

As an independent ADI I find the professional support and educational articles in the magazine invaluable. I have also furthered my knowledge and increased my confidence by attending training days e.g.roadside first aid.

I'm a DIA Plus member as the DIA is the largest association for the driver training industry who offers a high level of PI/PL cover, amazing benefits, great advice on just about anything, and a wide range of professional development training courses.
