Each month the Approved Driving Instructor Joint Council (ADINJC) provide their members with an online newsletter. Here’s some of the highlights from the first member newsletter of 2014.

Hitachi Capital renewed its sponsorship with ADINJC in December and we’re delighted to be able to support the not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to promote the interests of driving instructors.

In the monthly welcome from chairperson, Lynne Barrie, members are reminded of some of the key dates for their diaries this year. Check out our round-up of the top events for 2014.

ADINJC is continuing to improve its services to its members and Lynne is pleased to announce more training days.

She said: “We realise it is still a difficult time for the industry and for ADIs running a small business; our aim is to help you as much as possible with our support, advice and information and training events.”

Introducing NASG

There are a few well-established national associations in our industry who are all vying to be the loudest. Last year, ADINJC helped set-up the National Associations Steering Group which is made up of representatives from all the big associations. The idea is that the NASG will become a united voice to raise concerns, ideas and challenge the DSVA.

ADINJC members can read a letter the steering group sent to Mark Magee about their thoughts on the standards check.

Jam today and tomorrow

Ian McIntosh, CEO of Red Driving School, has a 220 mile commute to work each day. In a feature article for ADINJC members he talks about the growing problem of traffic jams but puts it into the worldwide context.
