Joining TVGAM as a member

TVGAM membership is open to any driver who passes our Advanced Test, qualifies by exemption or joins through one of our business courses. We are a friendly community of like-minded individuals from across the Thames Valley area and are delighted to welcome new members to our group.

When you become a member, you’ll get access to an exclusive member benefits package, as well as opening up a host of exciting and fulfilling opportunities and challenges.

How does it all work?

We are authorised providers of the Advanced Driving Course from IAM RoadSmart, the UK’s largest independent road safety charity. If you are in our catchment area (see below), when you purchase your course, it is TVGAM that will provide your training and support. It’s our job to help you on your journey to becoming a safer, happier driver and as a member you can enjoy all the events, community engagement and benefits you could wish for.

Take a look at our courses and follow the link to buy it via IAM RoadSmart. Once confirmed, they will assign you to our group and we can begin your training.
