You may never have driven at night, or in snow, heavy rain, or thick fog. You may never have navigated winding country roads or crowded city streets. And there’s certainly not a part of the driving test which ticks off how to be a designated driver on a night out with a car full of mates who are fun but distracting!
Now imagine a combination of the scenarios above. How about distracting friends, on a winding road in thick fog? Unless you’re exceptionally lucky it’s almost certainly going to happen at some point.
The good news is that you don’t need to re-sit the driving test to be better prepared. In just two steps our Momentum assessment can help you identify how to further improve your driving.
Alternatively call our membership hotline on 0300 303 1134 and we will answer any questions you may have on valid exemption qualifications.
Firstly we will email you the login details for a twenty minute online module. Please try and complete this within a week or so. The online module will explore your attitudes and opinions on driving as well as hazard awareness. It will also give you the opportunity to identify any aspects of your driving that you might wish to develop during the on-road session.
Once you have completed the module we will use your answers to tailor an extended on-road driving experience for you (minimum two hours) with one of our qualified drivers.
After completion of the online module we will contact you to arrange a suitable date and time for the on-road drive. This is taken in your own vehicle (not necessarily the scheme car) from a mutually convenient location. You should allow a half day for the drive to include the welcome and debrief, there will be a minimum of two hours actual driving. At the end of the session you'll receive a full debrief and written report and our driver will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Once you have purchased the assessment you will also be given Affiliate Membership of IAM RoadSmart which will provide a number of benefits and driving offers for you to take advantage of. Full details will be sent to you.
You are more able to keep your focus and enjoy the journey, even if the pressure is on.
* Momentum only costs £45 and if you sign up for our advanced driving programme within 12 months, we’ll discount the cost from the normal price of £149, so you can become an advanced driver for just £104.
If you then pass the advanced driving test, as a full IAM RoadSmart member you can benefit from many discounts and member benefits including likely savings on your motor insurance.
