The Leading National Association for Driving Instructors
The ADINJC is a national association run by ADIs on a not-for-profit basis. We work tirelessly to inform, represent and support our members, and to promote the interests of our profession.
Established in 1973, the ADINJC is one of the leading National Driving Instructor Associations in the UK. It acts as a focal point uniting local driving instructor associations and groups, providing a strong united voice representing the views of members to the DVSA and other bodies.
It is run by a Governing Committee, a small team of dedicated ADIs working full time in their own driving schools who donate their spare time and energy to improve the driver training industry for the benefit of both ADIs and the general public. Any member association can nominate someone to be a member of the GC with elections being conducted annually at the AGM.
Throughout the year we hold four association meetings. Two conducted online and two face to face. These are held in March, June, September and December, with our AGM being held at our March meeting. It is a unique opportunity to voice and discuss your concerns with a large group of your peers, keep updated with the latest industry developments and benefit from industry leading speakers.

Our chosen charity
ADINJC are proud to work with Speed of Sight as our chosen charity.
Speed Of Sight is an organisation committed to the promotion of opportunity for all. We like to focus on what people CAN do, rather than what they CANNOT. When people are able to take part in a sporting or physical activity they find that it improves their self-esteem, social interaction and physical and mental wellbeing. With this in mind Speed Of Sight, inspired by one of its co-founders Mike Newman, the multiple blind land and water speed record holder, provides a new experience for people with disabilities. Speed Of Sight have had three cars specially designed and built – two race cars and one off-road buggy. They allow people of all ages with disabilities to enjoy the excitement and thrill of motorsports. Our cars, named after Mike’s guide dogs, are specially designed with dual controls, twin steering wheels and our buggy has hand controls. Our experiences take place countrywide at racing circuits, off road tracks or any venue with a large enough car park or area where a circuit can be created.
Speed Of Sight recognise that it is important to promote positive awareness around disability so have devised activities that, whilst being a great group exercise and fantastic fun, show an insight into life without one of the senses. Activities such as corporate days where staff and/or clients are blindfolded while driving are not only fantastic fun but also increase awareness of difficulties faced by disability as well as the importance of trust and communication.
