The Institute of Advanced Motorists

Established in 1956, the IAM is the UK’s leading road safety organisation dedicated to raising driving and riding standards and reducing the number of collisions that occur on our roads.

They do this in a number of ways:

  • by playing a major role in the development and promotion of new road safety ideas…
  • by influencing policy at all levels of government…
  • and through our Skill for Life programme which enables drivers and riders to prepare for our Advanced Driving and Advanced Motorcycling tests.

Widely respected in its field, the IAM advises, and is consulted by, leading organisations world-wide with responsibilities for Road Safety.

From their headquarters in London, the IAM now support over 200 affiliated groups in the UK and Ireland and also administer the format and revisions of their Advanced Driving Test standards.

Over 300,000 people have now taken the IAM advanced test within the UK and Ireland and the IAM takes annual renewals from over 90,000 members.
