Become a Diamond Trainer

Offer both your novice drivers and full licence holders accredited advanced training and help develop their on road skills and safety. Adding a Diamond Trainer qualification allows you to offer more developmental training to clients new and existing. Diamond Trainers and Examiners work across the licence and vehicle classes, so regardless of what, who and where you teach you will be able to offer a Diamond route.

To become a Diamond Trainer you must complete a Diamond Elite test. On successful completion we will add you to our register of trainers and you will be eligible for training assignments via Diamond, as well being able to promote Diamond courses yourself independently. 

Become a Diamond Accredited Training Centre

Driver or rider training school with multiple trainers? Why not become an Diamond accredited training centre?

Training centres all over the world chose Diamond as an accrediting body for their post test training provision.

Becoming an accredited centre means we'll train your people to become in-house trainers and examiners enabling you to act as a Diamond specialist centre in your area offering a range of post test assessments and training services for both riders and drivers.

* Subject to demand in your area.

** Eligibility criteria and conditions for Diamond Examiners.

Whilst we recognise other advanced driving examiner qualifications as a useful element of prior learning, Diamond is a markedly different approach and marking scheme, therefore all candidates will have to complete our full examiner course to gain the qualification.

All candidates therefore must: 

  1. Hold full and current ADI registration
  2. Be a DIA member (to ensure appropriate Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance is in place)
  3. Have completed a Diamond Elite/Special test within the last 3 years. If candidates have not yet completed this test it can be arranged on application for the examiner course or booked online. The Diamond Elite test is a separate qualification and is not included in the Diamond Examiner course price.
  4. Complete the Diploma in Driver Education (DipDE) within 2 years of qualifying as a Diamond examiner

Registration to our Examiner register is £75 annually, payable by direct debit.

*** Due to the nature of the in-car training elements of this course, some dates may be subject to course numbers. We therefore advise candidates to wait for confirmation of their chosen course dates before booking travel or accommodation.
