South East London and Kent
Driving Instructors' Association


The group is for local driving instructors and road safety professionals. It aims to alert ADIs and PDIs to changes in the driver training industry, both nationally and locally, and to provide relevant and topical information with regard to road safety and driver training.

The group also provides training seminars, and group members can benefit from discounts to related services. Group nights provide attendees with a chance to share ideas with local colleagues, influential road safety professionals, and DVSA representatives.

Please do come along to a meeting and support your local association. You will be made very welcome by Ian and Wendy on the door.

Join the conversation on Facebook. You can contact a member of the Committee by emailing


Group meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of alternate months.
