Our local group network

Support for Associate Members preparing for the advanced test is provided by a national network of over 200 local IAM RoadSmart groups. These groups, all run by volunteers, represent a unique resource with unparalleled experience and expertise.

In addition, they provide a forum where members can share ideas and contribute to IAM RoadSmart's important work in developing and promoting innovative road safety strategies. Our local groups also provide a social focus meeting and enjoying the company of fellow driving and motorcycling enthusiasts.

Most of the groups listed in the group directory cater for cars or motorcycles, some also cater for LGVs, PCVs, minibuses, and the towing test.

Get involved with your local IAM group

Our groups are entirely run by volunteers and they are always looking for new members to get actively involved, either by becoming an Observer or Group Official or by attending group events. If you have lost touch with your group, or you wish to find out more about your local group, then please use this directory to get in touch with them. You'll receive a warm welcome and meet many like minded people.
