Update your driving knowledge with IAM RoadSmart from the comfort of your own home

Posted on 07/03/18 |

Fancy improving your driving skills from the comfort of your own armchair? Want to find out how even the smallest of distractions can cost you more than just a harmless prang?

The UK’s biggest independent motoring charity IAM RoadSmart has devised a series of seven e-learning modules which will improve your knowledge and abilities before you even set foot outside your door.

Each e-learning module costs just £5 and offers up to 20 minutes of interactive tuition. Topics covered are:

• Motorway driving

• Parking and manoeuvring

• Driving on country roads

• Driving in towns

• Managing distractions

• Managing speed

• Managing overtaking

IAM RoadSmart says the e-learning modules focus on specific aspects of driving that many drivers find challenging, and the modules’ interactive nature, with pictures and animations help make the key points easily memorable.

Sarah Sillars, IAM RoadSmart chief executive officer, said: “We believe that e-learning is a great accompaniment to actual road-based tuition, perfect for those who need to quickly update their skills or refresh their knowledge. The interactive quizzes and exercises provide a reminder of the most important driving rules and are a great help for those who need to boost their confidence behind the wheel.”

Buying an e-learning module is simplicity itself. All you have to do is head over to iamroadsmart.com/e-learning, click on ‘access modules’ and follow the instructions.

E-learning modules are also available to business and fleet operators. For more information about these, please call the IAM RoadSmart customer care team on 0300 303 1134.
