Today at the AGM Gavin Brownlie stepped down from his role as Chairman. Gareth Marchant also stepped down as Vice Chairman.

I'd like to publicly thank Gavin for everything he has done on behalf of Driving Instructors over the last five years. A big thanks is also deserved by Gareth Marchant for many years of service to DISC. He and Gavin made a good team and gave up many many hours voluntarily, to represent & further the industry. Thank you both.
