What are the benefits of joining?

 

  • The opportunity to attend regular Association meetings, often with guest speakers either from within or related to the driver training profession. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions or to raise issues that, if you wish, the Committee can then take up on your behalf with the relevant body.

 

  • Knowledge and skills improvement and sharing via presentations, workshops and discussions on a range of topics related to driver training.  Suggestions for topics always welcome!

 

  • Direct relevance to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

 

  • Free "Shared Learning" sessions where members meet and offer practical help, advice and share their experience, including the use of coaching methods, in a non-jugmental and open environment. The sessions are usually held on a Tuesday morning and are in car, very informal but highly informative. 

 

  • Free access to a lively forum where you can get the latest details on issues affecting driving instruction at both a local and national level, catch up on past meetings, air your own views, join in a discussion or find out about the latest social or fundraising events

 

 

  • Keep up to date with the many changes taking place in delivering driver training.

 

  • Opportunities to take part in group courses (e.g. Coaching, First Aid) and therefore benefit from the economies of scale.

 

  • An entry for your driving school in the Association website members’ directory

 

  • A chance to network with colleagues in the profession.

 

As most Driving Instructors are sole traders, you can feel an isolated and by joining you will have the opportunity to meet other instructors in your area and share experiences and knowledge that otherwise may not be possible.
