The IAM couldn't exist without its members.
From the volunteer observers, to regional groups and the members who have passed the advanced test there are over 100,000 people from the UK (and beyond!) who help us make the roads a safer place.
We encourage all members to remain actively involved with the IAM after they’ve taken their Advanced Driving Test. Some members go on to play active roles in their local IAM group, others volunteer to become trained observers. Whatever the level of involvement, all members are equally important in contributing to the work we do.
Becoming part of the IAM, in whatever capacity, brings many benefits. From improving your driving and riding skills, to enjoying the social side of our local groups, or venturing on ride-outs with our biker groups, the IAM is about becoming a better, more considerate and efficient road user in an enjoyable environment.
IAM membership is currently £32 per annum (£35.50 by cheque) with the first twelve months IAM and local group memberships included in the price of our Skill for Life courses.
As a member of the IAM you are also entitled to a great range of especially negotiated benefits and exclusive offers to help you get the most from your driving or motorcycling, with the highlights being:
- Insurance benefits: IAM Surety is a unique car insurance policy for our members. The scheme was voted the
’s number 1 for value for money in the Auto Express Driver Power surveys in 2012 and 2013. This survey also mentions that customers only had good things to say about IAM Surety, telling us the provider was “very reputable” and praising the “good value and excellent service”. 97.4% would renew their current policy.

- Personal RAC Cover: RAC offer everyone buying a Skill for Life course a year’s free personal Roadside & Recovery cover (£106 RRP) and then an attractive ongoing renewal discount. Family members can be added at special rates.
