ABOUT US

The Motor Schools Association of Great Britain (MSA GB) is one of the longest established national bodies for driver trainers in the world, having started back in 1935 just before the introduction of the driving test, it is the senior association for driver trainers in Britain. The association provides members with information both electronically and in print. Representation, both for individuals who have difficulties with other bodies and members collectively when we are consulted by bodies like the DVSA. MSA GB offer a range of services which are included in the membership fee and further services at discounted prices or with special benefits to members. The support provided for driver trainers is well documented and includes advice about all aspects of the profession of driver training and a shoulder to lean on when things get tough for individual members.

INFORMATION

The MSA prides itself on the information available to members. Most information is first published on the web site www.msagb.com and distributed through the association's social media feeds on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

MSA GB also publishes printed literature and our flagship publication Newslink has recently changed from a newspaper to an A4 magazine, a-style which reflects the current trend in professional publications, to be commentary and advice vehicles, rather than 'newspapers'.

REPRESENTATION

MSA GB represents individuals who have difficulties with other bodies and represents driver training interests to Government departments and agencies. The association is also a member of: PACTS (the Parliamentary Advisory Committee on Transport Safety); and RoSPA (the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents). European involvement is as the British representative to EFA (the European Driving Schools Association).

SERVICES

The association includes several services in the membership fee including Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance in the sum of fifteen million pounds (£15,000,000) for MSA GB for members engaged in any driver training activity that they are competent to deliver either through qualification or experience.
