The Four Aims of the Institute of D.E.R. are:
- To provide a structured system of self-help for those involved in professional driver education who are studying for university degree courses and qualifications in Road Safety Education;
- To provide a One-Stop Listing of all ADIs holding Higher Degrees, Ordinary and Honours Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates in Driver Education; and to act as a conduit for all members to interact and assist each other;
- To develop a library of written and Research material of Road Safety Education Projects: to be accessed by fellow students and promulgated to the press and other road safety outlets as needed; and
- To seek commercial interest and funding for Research Projects intended to explore and develop road safety generally, and driver education specifically, through Research, Training and Investigation.
The DERF has agreed to form a separate INSTITUTE of DRIVER EDUCATION & RESEARCH to give recognition to those ADIs who are working towards, or already have gained, Academic Recognition of their Vocational Skills and Abilities. It is aimed to separate temporary ADIs from those who intend to make a professional career in this commercial industry.
The IDER has decided to offer the complete range of levels of Membership of the INSTITUTE of DRIVER EDUCATION RESEARCH to all ADIs taking Driver Ed. degrees for the duration of their degree course-work. Associate Members are offered FULL FREE TELEPHONE advice, FREE Tutorials, Supervision and Advice plus FREE Email support whilst studying.
Fellowship and Graduate Membership of the Institute of D.E.R. is open to all ADIs with degrees in Driver Education or allied subjects. There may also be opportunities for Post-Graduate, Graduates and Members of the Institute of D.E.R. to take part in various on-going and future Research programmes and, the possibility of tutoring new candidates subject to their abilities, wishes and experience and commercial opportunities.
