The DIA National Conference is back for 2017 - as are its popular Driver and Rider Training Awards.
Combining a celebration of ADI achievement with a day ram packed with insights into the future of driver and rider training, top flight speakers and your chance to tell the policy makers what you really think on the hot topics in driver training. Supported, in addition, by important stakeholders in the driver training universe, including DVSA, Highways England, major insurance and motor manufacturing brands, it’s the professional driver training conference you want to make sure you attend.
After a successful (and highly emotional) inaugural Driver and Rider Training Industry Awards last year, the DIA are bringing them back and now is the time to nominate and vote for who you think is deserving for an award.
The DIA Driver and Rider Training Awards are voted by peers, pupils and professionals in driver training with a prestigious judging panel of driver training and education experts. The awards provide a great opportunity for individual ADIs to highlight achievement and best practice and offers a chance to celebrate individual pupil progress and achievement, as well as rewarding individual ADIs.

Award Training Hero Award

Local Association of the Year
