The Advanced Driver Course
(formerly known as Skill For Life)
New associates are invited to purchase the Advanced Driver Course which includes:.
- Your initial assessment;
- Associate membership of the group for one year;
- Associate Induction Session (both classroom and on the road);
- Course Logbook;
- Guidance and advice on the road by qualified Observers;
- A pre-test check with a National Observer;
- Your Advanced Driving Test;
- Associate membership of iAM RoadSmart for one year, which
automatically upgrades to full membership when you pass your test.
A package most would expect to cost hundreds of pounds.
Well the current cost is just £149.
IAM Members in Other Categories
If you are a current IAM full member in a different category (motorcycle or commercial) and wish to take
the car test, then you will still need the Advanced Driver Course package but you will get a £31 discount.
Our area is defined by the following postcodes:
GU 15, 17, 19;
HP 9 - 11;
RG 1 - 10, 12, 40 - 42, 45;
SL 0 - 9.
However, except when there is a backlog of Associates awaiting allocation to Observers we are happy to accept associates
from outside the area if they find it more convenient to belong to our group. Full members are always welcome to join the group.
How to Join the Group
You can purchase the Advanced Driver Course online. After you have purchased the
course you should contact the group you wish to join. You are not enrolled automatically, but there is no additional payment for the first year.
To join this group please come along to a monthly meeting or contact the Group Secretary.
Please note: this is a car group. If you wish to prepare for the IAM Motorcycle Test we
recommend that you join Thames Vale Advanced Motorcyclists.
