IAM RoadSmart membership is open to any driver or rider who passes our Advanced test, qualifies by exemption, or joins through one of our business courses.
Our community of members includes like-minded people of all ages from across the UK. When you become a member, you’ll get access to an exclusive member benefits package, as well as opening up a host of exciting and fulfilling opportunities and challenges.
Through our Advanced Courses, you’ll first join IAM RoadSmart as an Associate. Once you complete your test (or if you join us via Membership by Exemption or a business course), you’ll then join us as a full member.
Membership is renewed annually, and your first year is covered in the purchase price of an Advanced Course. After that, full membership is just £39 per year with direct debit.
In addition to improving your driving and riding skills, becoming an IAM RoadSmart member opens up a host of exclusive benefits which include:
When you join IAM RoadSmart as a member, you'll have the opportunity to push yourself to three distinct levels of recognition. Each level has been designed to further enhance your driving and riding skills, starting with a F1RST and finishing with a MASTERS Distinction:
F1RST membership is attained by taking the advanced test for car, motorcycle or commercial vehicle and scoring 1 in every category. Existing IAM RoadSmart members may also take a Member's Assessment in order to try and achieve the all 1s score.
