As the name suggests, better riding is not a one-time benefit but a real skill for life.

Recognising that the majority of collisions are caused by driver or rider error, the IAM Advanced Driving Test has the specific objective of significantly improving driving standards and is accredited by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). The Advanced Riding Test is not exclusively about safety, but encourages the rider to feel confident on the road, to make good progress, and to get greater enjoyment from the experience.

To date, over 400,000 people have taken the Advanced Test, the pass rate is around 75%, and we currently have over 100,000 active IAM members.
