Inverness IAM

Welcome to the Inverness Group of Advanced Motorists


Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

The ever changing Government regulations around Covid-19 means that IAM RoadSmart has taken the decision to temporarily suspend all car and motorcycle on-road training, testing, observing and group activities across the UK from Thursday 5 November 2020. The Inverness IAM Roadsmart Group must comply with this decision. We have, therefore, suspended any training or observing activity until further notice. Rest assured that we will resume activity as soon as it is possible, and we are allowed, to do so. In the meantime, if you require any information about what we offer and how you can register with us, please contact our secretary, Alison Harvey.

Contact details: email - Alison Harvey at

We will continue to reach out to our membership, old and new, through our newsletter. If you are a new member and you would like to go on our mailing list, please email Alison Harvey at the address above

We apologise for any inconvenience, and will respond to any enquiries as soon as possible.


About Inverness IAM

Founded in 1975 the Inverness Group of Advanced Motorists is one of over 210 groups across the country. We are the leading Advanced driver/biker training charity covering a wide area around Inverness. We are committed to raise driver/rider driving standards. We are affiliated to IAM Roadsmart, the leading authority of driver/motorcyclist advanced training in UK.

The Inverness group is dedicated to promoting driver/biker advanced skills through our training programmes. We achieve this by having highly trained Local and National Observers who are passionate in promoting advanced skills covering both car drivers and motorcyclists.

New members join as Associates and are given guidance in order to improve their driving skills. Members may then take a practical test assessed by highly experienced drivers leading to full IAM membership.

We are run entirely by volunteers who have been trained to the standard set by the IAM Roadsmart organisation. Observers will guide associates through theory and practical driving runs on the road until the required standard is achieved and they are ready to take the test.
