We invite every legal driving school owner (and their driving instructors) in South Africa and the Southern Hemisphere to join SAIDI, provided you are willing and able to provide us with the following documentation, and are willing to comply with the terms of our code of conduct.

We have a new Constitution too, which includes driving schools, since 2014.

In order to become a member of SAIDI, driving instructors need to provide us with the following documentation:


  1. A fully-completed “SAIDI Application for Membership” form. SAIDI Application for Individual Membership 2018 or for driving schools employing more than two driving instructors. (In that case we require the same documentation for each instructor working for the driving school on a permanent, temporary or contract basis please. Each one will be uploaded on your webpage with a photo of the vehicle they train in.) SAIDI Application for Individual Membership 2018 or  SAIDI Application for Driving School Owners, where more than two instructors are employed.
  2.   A certified copy of your valid instructor’s certificate, as required per legislation.* (See relevant legislation on the website).
  3.   Your Province does not process instructor applications? The SAIDI Constitution has been altered to include, as members, those instructors who have attempted to make the correct applications to the Provincial Departments where they reside, but who have been refused the opportunity to be registered or to have their instructor’s certificates renewed annually, as required by law, provided they meet SAIDI’s own internal criteria for membership. However, we are not accepting this! We are not taking it lying down. The problem in the Eastern Cape is being rectified, through a partnership with a very helpful person. Please contact us for more information.
  4.   Website details form – Instructors details for website
  5.   A recent photograph of your face.
  6.   An up-to-date photograph of your vehicle / s with the SAIDI sticker displayed – preferably just behind the side mirrors, when seated in the vehicle.
  7.   A certified copy of your identity book.
  8.   A certified copy of your driving licence.
  9.   The receipt for the payment indicated on the “SAIDI Application for Membership” form.
  10.   A certified copy of your motor insurance plan.
