NADIA started after a discussion in a pub...well not quite but in 1994 the local council Road Safety Officer: Allen Smith wanted a way to contact local driving instructors about road safety matters and suggested an association be set up.
ADI's John Bracey and Charles Jones were instrumental in contacting others and arranging the first meeting in the 'Rose and Crown' pub in Rangeworthy (the publican Martin Hulbert was an ADI).
A small committee was elected (John Bracey, Will Atkinsonn and Normal Best, Pam Rushent) and original members included: Charles Jones, Richard Skuse, John and Trish Leaker, Pat Hall, Melvin England and Martin Hulbert.
Meetings moved to Rangeworthy Village Hall and NADIA became established as a local association run properly for the benefit of professional driving instructors.
We have a written constitution and the committee are elected by the membership. Fees are kept to a minimum and our meetings are friendly, informal and supportive of all.
We now meet in Yate Library but our founding principles still apply:
