Who We Are & What We Do

The Association of Associations

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.

The ADINJC is a non-profit making organisation with no employees, shareholders or expensive premises to pay for. All income, after deductions for normal operating expenses, is devoted to activities to further enhance the  opportunities and profitability of members.

Association Meetings

Throughout the year at least three ‘Association Meetings’ are conducted, usually in the West Midlands, where up to two delegates from each member association and any individual platinum members are invited to attend and discuss the vital issues affecting the industry and also the smaller, but still important, issues which may be affecting individual local associations or members. It is a unique opportunity for individual ADIs to be able to voice their concerns and opinions to a large group of their peers where it can be discussed and considered.

Latest Industry News


Group and Individual Membership available. With options including PI+PL insurance, leading industry magazine subscription, help and advice from industry experts plus much more.

Useful Training


Being run by practising ADIs from most sectors of the industry, the ADINJC knows the driver training business very well. This enables it to provide a high quality, relevant national training programme on subjects and topics which are necessary to help members improve the success and profitability of their driving schools.

Regular Network Meetings


The ADINJC holds its annual conference, usually during October. It is always very popular and well attended, principally because of the range of diverse and knowledgeable speakers and the number of relevant trade stands present.

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.
