Ballymena Advanced Motorists

Welcome to Ballymena Advanced Motorists.

The Ballymena Group started originally in 1986 as a IAM subgroup. In 1990, Ballymena became a group in its own right.

Registered Charity No: XR13723
Affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (Group 8194)

What is involved?

The group runs three Short Term Associate Courses (STAC) each year. Each course lasts three weeks; after which associate members are assigned an observer who will act as 'mentor' on a voluntary basis and assist them in preparation for the advanced driving test. Test preparation is carried out using the Associate's vehicle. The schedule of observed runs are arranged at mutually convenient times.

We offer car, motorcycle and commercial vehicle Advanced Driving Tests.

All members are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings for which a varied programme of social and driving-related events are organised. Previous programmes have included advice on car security, visits to local car dealerships, local fire station and social gatherings such as barbecues and treasure hunts.

Where and when do we meet?

Usually 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm in Ballymena North Business and Recreation Centre, 120 Cushendall Road, Ballymena, BT43 6HB.
