Let us introduce ourselves
The head of the Driving Instructors Democratic Union is termed as the EC or the Executive committee. Although the head is the final decision maker of the group, his decisions are mainly based on the opinions and suggestions of the members. The Executive committee or the leader is elected every year during the annual general meeting or A.G.M. of the entire Driving Instructors Democratic Union group. The EC serves the group and leads them in making decisions without receiving any pay.

Every member of the union is encouraged to join the annual general meeting for them to share their thoughts and opinions and to cast their votes for the Executive Committee position.
