Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) Qualifications.
Here at Executive Cars Derby Ltd our number one priority is keeping our clients safe and comfortable when they travel with us. Our professional chauffeurs always exhibit the care and skill of a competent and careful driver. These heightened skill levels were developed through nationally approved driver training courses such as the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) Advanced Driver course which help to achieve the highest standard of civilian driving in the country.
IAM RoadSmart is a charity based in the United Kingdom whose objective is to improve car driving and motorcycle riding standards and so enhance road safety by using the British Police Force system of car and motorcycle control commonly known as ‘the System’. People who have passed an IAM advanced driving test have substantially fewer accidents statistically and typically report getting more pleasure from driving too. Research has shown that IAM training increases a wide range of driving skills including speed, safe distances, gear changing and cornering.
The IAM was formed in 1956 and all its members have taken and passed an advanced driving test in a car, commercial vehicle or on a motorcycle. The charity brought its different activities and programmes together under one umbrella called IAM RoadSmart in 2016.
To become a member, one needs to pass the IAM advanced driving test. There are exemptions for people with suitable emergency services or military driving qualifications. Unlike the standard driving test administered by the DVSA, the IAM advanced driving test has less pressure because pass or fail makes no difference to the driver’s licence. Rather, the IAM advanced driving test provides the opportunity to gain assessment, guidance and tips from a qualified expert.
