UDIA is one of the largest Organisations running with more than 250 members under the leadership of the current Chairman Kamrul Alam.



UDIA (initially named BBDIA) was originally established in 2007 by a group of driving instructors who got together for a social gathering in Tower Hamlets, East London. Like many gatherings the conversations began to flow with ideas being exchanged. Individuals expressed an interest in forming an Association where everyone can support eachother, share ideas, keep each other motivated and possibly have other social gatherings to celebrate religious and cultural festivals.


It was decided a Driving Instructors Association be formed to help and share information between fellow colleagues and to support new driving instructors joining the industry. The objectives of the association was to create a platform for all driving instructors and hold regular workshops related to teaching and supporting fellow colleagues.


UDIA empower its members to work productively as well as keep them engaged, motivated, happy and healthy. UDIA is committed to improving working life and has its own Foitbal team and arranges numerous sports and social activities for its members.


The latest event which was a first for the organisation was the Gramd Prix Race 2022. Driving Instructors are skilled and experienced with cars and it was time to battle it out amongst them to find the Best of the Best over 25 laps of the grand prix circuit. There was no law, No rules, no mirror checks, no signals. It was pure driving skill that they demonstrated. It was a tough battle. They were neck to neck with each other on the race. The race ended with Abdul Momin taking first place, Johir Ali in 2nd place and in third place Mobosher Ali.


Even though the Chairman Kamrul Alam came out at 10th place he embraced the victory as a success. He emphasised that, it’s not about winning. It’s about everyone coming together and enjoying the moment. Otherwise as driving instructors the only other way of seeing each other is on the road while they pass each other in lessons.


Once the Race was over they made way to Grand Rasoi where UDIA hosted a Dinner Party and Awards Ceremony.


Jabir Ahmed CEO of UK-Plug was presented with an Appreciation award for his continuous support to the organisation.


UDIA presented medals to all the participants and thanked Shahed Ahmed of Grand Rasoi for hosting the Dinner Party and Award Ceremony.
