IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Course
The reality is that when we first learn to ride we’re being taught how to pass the test, but there are still opportunities to continue developing what both you and your bike are capable of.
THAT’S WHERE THE IAM ROADSMART ADVANCED RIDER COURSE COMES IN, PRACTISING IN URBAN, RURAL AND DUAL CARRIAGEWAY ENVIRONMENTS.
It’s a course of observed rides, leading to the Advanced Rider test. Based on the principles of Advanced Riding as used by the police, it teaches riders the skills to better adapt to changing situations.The IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Course is approved by the Driving Standards Agency. The Advanced Rider course will typically consist of 8 – 10 observed runs that usually last approximately 2.5 hours per session. This is just a guide and some Associates may require more or less runs to achieve test standard, but the aim is complete this within 3-4 months. Practising in between observed rides is very important to develop new skills.
£175 (+ £60 OBSERVER FUEL CONTRIBUTION payable to EDAM) OR FREE (by EDAM refund on test pass) IF YOU ARE UNDER 29.
Thinking you would like to improve your skills but the cost is putting you off? If you have not yet had your 29th birthday and you signup for an Advanced Rider course, join EDAM, undertake your course of observed rides and pass your test within a sensible period of time, EDAM will refund you your Skill for Life fee and observer’s contribution, currently £235! Ah, but there must be catch? Surely? No, there isn’t! All we ask is that you commit to regular observed rides, and practice in between sessions to prepare for your test, the same as any other associate. Get yourself through your test and a nice cheque will be given to you. So what’s stopping you now? We are able to offer this to younger riders due to the kind generosity of Miss Alison Laidlaw, who left EDAM a bequest of money to be used to improve the road safety of younger riders. Although not a biker herself, Miss Laidlaw was a member of the IAM, passing her car test late in her driving career. She saw that younger riders especially were at much higher risk being involved in accidents, and through her bequest to us, she has tasked EDAM in improving the skills of the most at risk rider.
