What exactly is involved in becoming an Advanced Driver?.
It's something I'd like to do(if I come up to scratch!...).
I am a member in Car and Heavy Goods Vehicles categories.

Institute of Advanced Motorists | Welcome to the IAM!
You can do the IAM test for motorbikes aswell !
I should have got the IAM certificate for motorbikes aswell when I had the chance but I never applied for it.
Being a military driving examiner for all vehicles and I mean all. Cars, Motorbikes, tracked vehicles, all hgv etc. We were awarded the IAM certificates without taking the actual test as they said we passed tests and did courses much more strict.
I still ride my Kawasaki, heres a picture of me taken about 33 years ago..........
.Great photo Dave!
My dad was an IAM member for years and used to do the assessed drives that help you to learn which bits need attention. Very worth while although I've never got round to trying it myself. The Roadcraft manual is well worth a read too, especially the section regarding limit points
Re. insurance discounts, some insurers still offer a discount, but it's never been all that high. If you shop around and plump for an insurer or broker online, try giving them a ring if you are a member of the IAM - they may still be able to shave a bit of your insurance
