About IAM RoadSmart

Get More from your Driving and Riding

A totally independent voice

IAM RoadSmart is a registered charity. We are not owned by, or financially dependent on, any other organisation - commercial or public sector - that might have conflicting interests, or indeed a vested interest in a specific aspect of Road Safety.

Our financial support comes mainly from the annual membership fees of more than 112,000 members throughout the UK and beyond, together with the charges we make for administering the Advanced Test.

Responsible only to its own members, IAM RoadSmart represents drivers and motorcyclists in particular, and the public in general, on road safety and related matters with a truly independent voice.

One of IAM RoadSmarts key goals is to help its Members and Associates develop the advanced skills that help make driving and riding a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Being an advanced driver or rider is a journey of continuous learning, and one of its key stages is the internationally recognised Advanced Test. Pioneered by IAM RoadSmart, it is this for which we are perhaps best known.

There is, however, much more.

Established in 1956, IAM RoadSmart is the UK's leading road safety organisation dedicated to raising driving and riding standards and reducing the number of collisions that occur on our roads.

We do this in a number of ways:

  • by playing a major role in the development and promotion of new road safety ideas
  • by influencing policy at all levels of government
  • and through our Skill for Life programme which enables drivers and riders to prepare for our Advanced Driving and Advanced Motorcycling tests

Widely respected in its field, IAM RoadSmart advises, and is consulted by, leading organisations world-wide with responsibilities for Road Safety.
