Driver Trainer is the magazine of the professional driver and rider trainer

We report the news as it happens and our in-depth features reflect the wide-ranging role of the modern driver trainer.

Driver Trainer is the magazine of the DIA, the largest professional association in driver training. We have access to the right people – policy and lawmakers, regulators and government. We hear it first and we tell it like it is

Our articles cover a diverse range of subjects, including driver behaviour, learner and occupational driver training, legislation, the future of the industry, motoring technology and motorbike training
