Join TVAM Here!

If you want to join the best advanced motorcycle club in the UK then just complete the Membership Application form below and click on “Send”. You will be directed to the TVAM Webshop where you can select the relevant membership option:

  • If you’ve already passed your Advanced Test with the IAM (and are still an IAM member) then you can join TVAM for just £30 per annum.
  • If you’d like us to coach you to ride more smoothly and more safely, to the point of taking your IAM test, then you can take a “Advanced Rider Package” for £149. This includes your first year’s membership of TVAM and the IAM, your test fee and the IAM Advanced Rider package logbook.
