The Approved Driving Instructors National Joint Council (ADINJC) is a British organisation to bring together associations of local driving instructors, to allow driving instructors to act as a unified body when needed.
The ADINJC was formed in 1973 during the fuel crisis, leading figures at the time came together due to the fear that fuel shortage would stop driving instructors from working. Currently the ADINJC is the third largest organisation in the driving instruction industry (excluding driving schools, such as the British School of Motoring) with consultative status with the Driving Standards Agency (DSA).
The ADINJC aims to further the professional and financial interests of driving instructors through consultation with the Department for Transport and the DSA. It is a non-profit organisation with no salaried staff (though some officers receive an honorarium).

“No Government can be long secure without a formidable Opposition. It reduces their supporters to that tractable number which can be managed by the joint influences of fruition and hope. It offers vengeance to the discontented, and distinction to the ambitious; and employs the energies of aspiring spirits, who otherwise may prove traitors in a division or assassins in a debate.”
—Benjamin Disraeli (18041881)
“There by some wrinkled stones round a leafless tree
With beards askew, their eyes dull and wild
Twelve ragged men, the council of charity
Wandering the face of the earth a fatherless child....”
—Allen Tate (18991979)
“We love the indomitable bellicose patriotism that sets you apart; we love the national pride that guides your muscularly courageous race; we love the potent individualism that doesnt prevent you from opening your arms to individualists of every land, whether libertarians or anarchists.”
—Tommaso Marinetti (18761944)
“On a late-winter evening in 1983, while driving through fog along the Maine coast, recollections of old campfires began to drift into the March mist, and I thought of the Abnaki Indians of the Algonquin tribe who dwelt near Bangor a thousand years ago.”
—Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
