Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

Bookings for IAM RoadSmart courses are still open, but in line with current Government advice, our on-road coaching sessions are suspended until further notice.

Due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), IAM RoadSmart Trustees have taken the difficult decision to temporarily scale back our resources, from Wednesday 1 April 2020.

A small team is still available to respond to enquiries from our groups, members and customers. In line with Government advice they are all working from home.

Our Trustees and Senior Management Team continue to monitor the situation closely and make decisions that will best protect our future organisational capability based on current Government advice.

If you choose to proceed with your booking, we will be in touch as soon as the current situation regarding COVID-19 has been resolved to register you for your first session.

Your first year of IAM RoadSmart membership will be extended for up to six months free-of-charge so you can complete your course. 

For further details, please contact us.
