Course Dates & Venue
Courses are run in the Spring and Autumn.
Autumn 2017 Course
Our next course is due to take place in the Autumn of 2017. The course will commence with an Information Evening on Tuesday 5 September. This Information Evening will include an introduction to advanced driving and riding - what does 'advanced driving' (or 'advanced riding') mean, exactly? - and some background information on the national IAM and on our Group here in Inverness. It will include an outline of our course and, if you decide to join us, what you can expect from us, and what we will expect from you.
The venue for this course will be Millburn Academy, Diriebught Road, Inverness. The timing will be 7.30pm to approx 9.30pm, with a short tea break half way through. We hope that you will find the Information Evening interesting and informative and that you will come back to our Enrolment Evening the following week on 12 September, when the course proper will begin. After this meeting new members will be matched up with their ‘mentors’, who are known in the IAM as ‘Observers.
There will be further evening meetings on Tuesdays 19 and 26 September and Tuesday 3 October.
Apart from these evening meetings, the course is conducted by in-car (or on-bike) runs with your Observer. After you have had five runs you will be taken out for an assessment by one of our Senior Observers, and your test will be applied for. The test normally takes place around two to four weeks after the application is lodged.
The cost of the Course is £149 which provides Associate Membership of the IAM, the course books, the test fee and the first year’s membership of the IAM. Please note that for motorcyclists a further £60 is payable to assist the Observer with his or her bike running costs.
As well as becoming a much safer driver or rider, the benefits of our Advanced Driving and Riding Course can include reduced insurance, reduced tyre and brake wear, and improved fuel efficiency. We are confident that you will therefore find that the Course represents very good value for money.
Course Venue: Millburn Academy, Diriebught Road, Inverness.
