We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the Intelligent Instructor Awards 2023 in association with AcciDON’T Driving School.

Increasing support

This year a record number of driving instructors were nominated by their learner and newly qualified drivers. Over 2,200 nominations were received which is up 21% year on year! We’ve whittled this list down to a shortlist of just 100, so click below to see who’s made this year’s Intelligent Instructor’s Top 100 Driving Instructors.

For our other categories, we also received a record number of entries, +23% year on year. We’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in the process so far, those who have spent time submitting entries, to those 2,200+ learners who have nominated their instructor, and for those instructors who’ve encouraged them to do so!

Independence guaranteed

Our expert, independent judging panel will now start the process of assessing all those shortlisted entries. The winners for each category will be the ones who have achieved the highest combined ranking from our two voting methods – judging panel and public vote. Equal weighting will be applied to each.

The Driving Instructor of the Year category will be chosen by our judging panel alone. It will be spilt into 11 regions, with each having an overall winner and highly commended winners too. One of the 11 regional winners will be crowned Intelligent Instructor’s Driving Instructor of the Year 2023. You can check to see whether you made our Top 100 here – www.intelligentinstructor.co.uk/driving-instructor-of-the-year
