ADI Federation

Supporting ADIs since 1996

Help when help is needed

ADI Federation was created in 1996 as an independent trade association for the driver training industry. It’s primary function is to help driver trainers when they need it most, and to be a source of information.

For ADIs

We exist for the individual Approved Driving Instructor (ADI), and other accredited driver trainers. We are not politically motivated and, unlike other ADI associations, we are not beholden to DVSA.


By working independently of DVSA, we are able to get problems sorted in minimum time, leaving our members to get on with what they do best - providing first-class driver training.

Non Profit

We are not a business - we are Not for Profit. Your subscriptions go back into the Federation to help us further our work on your behalf.
