About Us

Dave Foster MA, Dip.DI

Having first qualified in 2000, I live in Exeter in Devon but today find myself training instructors in many of the southern counties. I have covered a lot of ground with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) initially taking and passing my Diploma in Driving Instruction in 2005. This was the start of a roller coaster of CPD. I remained for six years with a national franchise and with them became a fleet driver trainer having worked with some top name brands delivering fleet training. My heart led me to instructor training where I soon became ORDIT registered. I have been involved with the DIA and helping other instructors from the start and was elected onto the General Purposes Committee in 2008 and am the current Chairman. Previously I have been an examiner and question writer for the Dip.DI. I can be found at most CPD events supporting them where I can.
I have trained literally hundreds of ADI’s (yes it’s my fault). I have been employed as a Director of Training for a medium sized Driving School providing quality CPD training to expand the incomes and quality of Driving Instructors. I now turn my attention to providing these ‘quality’ services to all Driving Instructors. Through my two ventures www.drivertrainingeducation.co.uk and www.1st4driving.co.uk .My CPD list is too long to mention here but suffice to say last year I completed my Master’s degree with Middlesex University with a distinction in Driver Training Education I am also a grade six instructor. If you have any questions or I can be of service to you or your organisation then please contact me at dave@1st4driving.co.uk
