The British Driving Society is the governing body for leisure carriage driving in the United Kingdom and with over 6000 members, is a society that actively supports the sport with a full diary of events, shows, competitions, training and education programmes.

Area 36 covers the old county of Dyfed incorporating much of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion and openly welcomes your support. The BDS in our area covers a whole host of activities, including some really great rallies taking in the splendours of the Welsh countryside, from the coast to the mountains. Few areas enjoy such diversity of scenery, as a BDS member, all are welcome to attend any of our regular rallies held throughout the year.
