Welcome to Mid Wales Advanced Motorists
Drivers who have passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists
(IAM) Advanced Driving Test – have a 25% lower accident rate than candidates
that fail, and a 50-70% better record than the average driver. IAM
members not only have fewer collisions but those that are involved tend to have
less serious ones. (Pass your Advanced Driving Test, Ian Webb, Bay View Books
Ltd, Bideford, 1996) Develop your driving/riding skill. You know where the
vehicle controls are because someone showed you. Now learn how to use them to
gain maximum advantage: by overtaking in places others don’t anticipate, and
using the road to shorten your travelling time. The course lasts
approximately 8 weeks. Driving/riding your own vehicle where the observer will
either sit next to you (car) or follow (motorcycle).
The Test lasts around 90 minutes, carried out by an IAM
examiner, a police trained driver. Expect to travel on a variety of roads; at
the end you will know the result. The commonest reason for failing is making
insufficient progress – drive like a snail and fail!
