We are a group of car drivers who are dedicated to the advancement of Road Safety by improving the driving standards of ourselves and others to that required by iAM RoadSmart. Our objective is to improve the quality and quantity of better drivers on our overcrowded road system.

The Thames Valley Group celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, we are holding a celebration event on Saturday 23rd June. We are combining the anniversary celebration with a focus on younger drivers.
40th Anniversary
So, what will be on offer?
  • Taster Drives/Refresher Drives/Demo Drives - for young and old, members and prospective members alike
  • Slow manoeuvring exercises in the car park
  • David Gallagher, IAM Young Driver Ambassador, will be attending and acting as a focal point for young drivers
  • Free prize draw for young drivers with a chance to win free and discounted Advanced Driver Courses
  • Road signs quiz with chocolate-based prizes for those who get all the answers right!
  • DVD by Chris Gilbert (former Met police advanced driver instructor) projected onto screen to spark conversations
  • Competition to guess the number of balloons in a car
  • Light refreshments
We are hoping to provide a few other attractions as well, and we are still awaiting confirmation of them. And there is a rumour of some cake!
Please come along, bring your family, friends, even colleagues - and especially any young drivers. It is free and there is something for all ages!
Take part in the activities, have a chat and help us celebrate our Ruby Anniversary.
