As a user of the Drivers Club app you and your family and friends can enjoy the challenge of developing your driving (or riding) skills with the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Driver or Rider Courses!
The courses deliver advanced driving and riding knowledge and practical skills development, helping you to improve your skills, anticipation, and enjoyment. You'll become a qualified IAM RoadSmart advanced driver or rider at the end of the course.
Thanks to your connection with Drivers Club, you, plus your family and friends receive a 10% discount too! So you get either full programme for £134. (usually £149).
The courses are based on a series of observed drives or rides, leading to the Advanced Test, which is quality assured by the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency).
Once you've booked a course, you'll be assigned to one of our 200+ local groups around the country. You'll be paired with an observer from your group, who will accompany you on drives or rides and advise you on how to develop your skills to the advanced test standards.
The test lasts for about 90 mins and usually covers 30 - 40 miles along a variety of road types. During the test the examiner will thoroughly assess yourability according to the different road conditions. You'll negotiate various hazards and situations, utilising the skills and techniques that have been developed on the courses.
The main benefit of taking the course is becoming a safer driver - providing you with the skills, experience and understanding to quickly adapt to a range of situations.
