An invitation to become an IAM member by exemption
Recognition of your skills
At the IAM we recognise the best drivers and riders, which is why you could be eligible to receive IAM membership and benefits without having to take our advanced test.
We welcome 'membership by exemption' applications from drivers and riders who hold certain professional qualifications.
Who are the IAM?
We are an independent road safety organisation and registered charity. Our financial support is provided by our 100,000+ strong membership. Your annual subscription helps support our valuable work in promoting driving and riding safety.
IAM membership offers a host of fantastic, personal benefits including 20% off RAC membership plus a welcome £20 M&S voucher, annual subscription to our magazine Advanced Driving, potential reductions in motor insurance through our insurance provider IAM Surety, weekend break deals and much more.
Want to share your skills too?
Your professional driving and/or riding qualification opens up exciting opportunities to become directly involved as an IAM group observer. Or if you hold a police advanced certificate can make a valuable contribution as an IAM examiner.
