Profile: Andrew Cook
Masters Qualified with Distinction
IAM RoadSmart Advanced Test F1RST
Observer based in Gloucestershire
Background in Driving
Andrew’s first motorised transport was a Lambretta scooter. Since then he has owned many cars and a large motorcycle. He even had a spell driving double decker buses.
He qualified as an advanced driver when he passed his first advanced driving test at the highest level, and has since gone on to pass the IAM RoadSmart test with a F1RST and then the IAM RoadSmart Masters with Distinction. He has completed additional driver training in skid control, evasive driving, and 4x4 off-roading.
Andrew became an Observer in 2018 and a National Observer in 2019. He is also an advanced driving tutor outside of the IAM.
Supporting Our Group
Andrew is a committee member and Associate Coordinator which is a role providing liaison between associates and observers. He also enjoys helping out with the group stand at shows and events.
Andrew has been enjoying the pastime of geocaching since 2011 which fits in nicely with his passion for walking in the hills and countryside. He is a member of Dean Forest Beekeepers and although a relative newcomer to the hobby, he’s already learned a great deal about these fascinating insects. He relaxes by reading, listening to music and completing cryptic crosswords.
