About the Driving Instructors Association

Driving Instructors Association is the largest professional membership body for driver and rider trainers in the UK. We offer support, advice, professional development and training, lobbying and representation to trainers working across the vehicle and licence categories.

A globally respected source of advice, experience and expertise on driver education, we work with driver training and wider road safety professionals across the world to develop driving standards.

DIA is also a member of key industry stakeholder groups, including the Department for Transport’s Road Safety Delivery Group and the Road Safety Observatory board and as such is closely involved in the development of regulation, policy and strategy in the sector.

As the leading professional membership body in driver education, we also have the largest reach across driver training and road safety practitioner audiences. Our subscriber base represents one of the largest groups of driver and training education stakeholders in the UK, with over 30,000 members and subscribed service users.

In addition to providing advice, professional development and support to our stakeholders, we are also a direct driver training provider ourselves, offering a range of classroom based, in car and elearning advanced driver and rider training and assessments pathways to both individual motorists and fleet operators, large and small, in the UK and internationally.
