The IAM is the UK’s leading independent road safety charity. We passionately believe that our roads can be made a safer place by improving the standards of the people who...


As a charity the Institute of Advanced Motorists (the IAM) supports the raising of driving and riding standards and campaigns for increased on-road skills.

We support and represent motorists, motorcyclists and cyclists through practical driving andriding programmes and urge all road users to act more responsibly and safely.

We also aim to inform and influence government and decision makers to ensure that road safety remains a relevant topic and receives the focus and investment that it requires.

Our commercial business subsidiary, IAM Drive and Survive, promotes occupational driver improvement throughout the fleet/business community. This helps employers achieve their duty of care to employees and also help to reduce road accidents whilst driving on business.

We also offer Drink Drive Rehabilitation courses throughout parts of England and Wales, delivered by the IAM Driver Retraining Academy (IAMDRA).
