About Us

We are a group of Advanced Motorists who have passed the IAM’s Advanced Driving Test and are keen to pass their knowledge on to others. We are one of around 200 local groups around Britain. We were founded 30years ago. You’ll find us a friendly, easy going crowd who will be pleased to welcome you. Our group currently has around 70 members

We are a charity, and devote our time (and fuel) for free. Every year we run four courses each of which lasts about 12 weeks. People who come on our courses are Associate Members of the group, and become Members once they pass.

We encourage Members to train to become “Observers” and “Senior Observers” who guide Associates throughout the course.

We also have a social life – we regularly have dinners and social events such as go-karting, quizzes, clay pigeon shooting and off-road vehicle driving, etc.

Our newsletter and flyers are published regularly to keep our members and friends in touch with our activities – also check out our news page on this website.

Both the IAM and Chorley group are Charities in their own right. Chorley group have the responsibility to run its own affairs, within a general framework of Rules drawn up by the IAM. Chorley Group is affiliated to the IAM but is not a part of it. Only Full Group Members (having passed the Test and paid Chorley group subscriptions) can take a part in the Group Committee and they must be current Members of the IAM.

All Members of the IAM are expected to honour the name and prestige of the IAM and uphold its long established reputation as a contributor to Road Safety and Better Driving.
