Why not make a weekend of it, by joining us for a fantastic networking event the night before The Driving Instructor Convention? The purpose-built Yarnfield Conference and Events Centre is complete with hotel and on-site restaurant.

On Saturday night, 11th May, Intelligent Instructor will host a networking dinner, which will include a drinks reception kindly sponsored by the ADNIJC, followed by a four-course buffet dinner in a private room. Guests will enjoy the Intelligent Instructor Awards 2024 in association with AcciDON’T Driving School trophy presentation, along with a charity raffle in aid of the fantastic Speed of Sight organisation. The evening will be hosted by our very own professional comedian, Stephen Owen, who will have you rolling around in the aisles.

It’s a great opportunity for instructors and exhibitors to network in a relaxed and intimate setting, whilst enjoying the comfort and convenience of the on-site hotel, ready for the busy day ahead.
