Our Performance


IDIG was constituted in 1992 to satisfy the needs of Professional Driving Instructors. We're a "not for profit" organisation, not a union, borne from a need for true representation. We are a Guild meaning a society offering mutual help through common values & objectives.

Things to Know

We gained industry respect and credibility largely due to our resolve for engaging in a spirit of co-operative communication. We aim to gather, share and transmit information, honestly, without fear, favour or disadvantage to other driving instructors within the industry.

Places to Go

We proudly display our Members' Brands and offer them as an extension of our service so that visitors may progress their enquiries into an implementation of their needs. Membership secures you a "referral link", where we may direct new visitors to an applicable service on your website.
