What is the BDIA?

The BDIA are not a driving school, we are a collective group of driving instructors who have formed an association to maintain the highest standards of driving tuition in the Barnsley and surrounding areas.

All members of the Barnsley Driving Instructors Association carry a sticker on the back of their car. This sticker guarantees that your driving instructor is fully qualified and up to date with all the latest driving practices.

All members of the BDIA are independent driving schools in their own right, but are united under the BDIA banner. We have monthly meetings and attend regular training seminars to keep up to date with all the latest skills or changes in the driver training industry.

We are not a large organisation driven by profit margins; we are professionals whose sole aim is to teach you to drive correctly and safely, not just to pass a driving test.

All our BDIA members are fully qualified high grade instructors. This means that you will not receive your tuition from a trainee instructor. Statistics show that only 1 in 10 trainee instructors pass their Part 3 Test with the Driving Standards Agency to become fully qualified.
