THE Scarborough Group of Advanced Motorists (IAM RoadSmart) is offering local drivers the chance to find out how good their driving actually is, completely free of charge.
The first free assessment will take place on Tuesday 16 April from 7pm until dusk at The Street, William Street Coach Park. There is also one on 18 June at 7pm.
IAM Roadsmart is a national road safety charity in existence since 1956 originally as the IAM (Institute of Advanced Motorists) but recently rebranded as IAM Roadsmart. The IAM has always provided training to members of the public through its network of 190 volunteer groups to prepare them for the Advanced Driving Test. Each group is a registered charity. The Scarborough Group formed in 1982 and has successfully trained nearly 1000 drivers to pass the Advanced Driving Test.
All training and free assessment is provided by group volunteers, who undergo stringent testing. ‘Observers’ are now independently tested every three years to ensure they have the interpersonal skills, driving theory knowledge and driving skills to provide high quality driver training.
