Welcome to the DIA Academy

The home of learning and professional development for driver and rider trainers

As a trainer you recognise the importance of developing your skills and knowledge – especially when you’re passing all that wisdom onto other learners. From the moment you start your training as an instructor, to 20 years plus in the game, there’s always something new we can learn to benefit us as a trainer – and to the benefit of our pupils. DIA Academy has been designed to help trainers fit some crucial professional development (how we like to see CPD!) into their busy lives. With a diverse range of courses and flexible online, classroom, and even in-vehicle training options, you can tailor learning to suit your need – and fit it in with your busy schedule as a trainer

It's time to start driving your professional development forward!
