Course overview

Why should you take it?

Our member's Riding Assessment offers current full members of the IAM to have their current skill level voluntarily assessed against our advanced test standard. 

This assessment is particularly suited to members who would like to demonstrate that their riding skills are of a standard to be added to our F1RST Register.

This assessment follows the format and structure of an advanced test and is conducted by one of our Examiners. You will benefit from a comprehensive report and personal feedback session at the end of the ride.

What can you expect?

As a voluntary check of your current riding standard this assessment does not affect your IAM membership status. In the unlikely event that your skills have dipped below the advanced level then we will simply provide you with a personal report and debrief suggesting the areas that you may wish to develop. Your IAM membership will not be affected.

Get expert help to polish your skills, if there are a few areas that need a refresh then your local IAM RoadSmart motorcycle group will be delighted to arrange some mentoring for you. Get in touch and see how they can help you.
