About us

The Bournemouth & District Group of Advanced Motorists are one of over 200 groups across the country run as independent charities affiliated to The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM).

Our qualified observers will help and guide you in your own car until you are at the standard required to take the advanced driving test. During this process we will help you learn how to:

  • Deal with hazards in a safe and systematic way
  • Improve your observation and planning
  • Corner at the optimum and safe speed
  • Overtake safely and confidently
  • Improve your car control
  • Drive in an Eco-friendly manner 

Together with these skills we make your driving more enjoyable and safer for all.

Our group is run by a dedicated committee. We aim to help both new and existing members. Most months we hold a social meeting with a guest speaker and a motoring related discussion afterwards. We also aim to attend community events to raise the profile of the group and work in partnership with other organisations whose aims are to improve road safety.
