Whether it’s a car or dual controls, Insurance or a teaching issue you can contact Hayley in our office and in most cases she can answer your question. If not, one of our ten directors comprising car, motorcycle and truck instructors as well as an RTO manager, will have your question referred to them.
2. Be Informed
Our newsletter is full of information concerning Car, Motorcycle and Heavy Vehicle issues and from time to time we send focussed “News Flash” emails to specific member groups, concerning their areas of expertise. We are very quick to share important regulator issues by email and social media.
Having the bulk of our membership base in QLD and NSW the ADTA is, however, the only body with members in every state across Australia. With over 1,100 members, the vast majority of which are small one and two person operations, we have a voice that the regulators respect.
Our members are our backbone and whilst we work to protect the interests of our members and their businesses our absolute goal is equipping all instructors to see a better driver put onto Australian roads.
Our members are a diverse group. Approximately 75% of our members are Car Instructors, about 20% heavy vehicles and the remaining 5% are a combination of Motorcycle and RTO members.
The subcommittees in our board have areas of expertise and meet separate to our board meetings to ensure the most relevant and important issues are dealt with from that knowledge base.
A selection of our directors meet regularly with Service NSW, TMR in Qld, RMS and other stakeholder groups. We have strong relationships with senior management at all of the regulators and generally help on issues is only a phone call away.
6. Professional Development
Our key focus is on the development of instructors skills, outcomes and businesses.
All ADTA members must have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. We offer this as a part of the membership package by way of an industry specific policy built by top tier insurer CGU.
