TODAY’S INFORMATION UPDATES AND DRIVING TIPS
Covid – 19
The Government information and directives do not need to be re-stated here so to directly advise you of the Wolverhampton Advanced Motorists position:
- We are currently suspending all Group Meetings, including attendance at any shows until further advice is received from Central Government
- With regard to Committee Meetings, a decision will be made on these, close to the time of each scheduled meeting.
- With regard to Observer and Associate activity, for the time being, these are now suspended though we anticipate that with Rider activity now having been restarted that we will be re-starting Driver Observation in the near future.
The following video should be seen as generally informative only, and, though generated in the United States, is just as relevant here excepting the final thirty seconds where the constantly updated advice from the NHS should be followed and not the directive presented.
We want all of our Group Members to be safe at this time; if there is any support that you need, that you believe we can provide, please do not hesitate to contact us using the Contact-us page of this web-site or by calling Paul on 07475 552258. If you can provide support for other Group Members who may be in need then please use the Contact-us page to let us know what you are able to help with. (Tony will collate this information and call on people as necessary)
Please keep a watching eye on this web-site as we will be posting updates through the course of the next few weeks as circumstances and advice changes; as we all appreciate this is a dynamic situation and we all need to react accordingly.
Our aim is to reduce road traffic collisions by helping drivers improve their driving, knowledge and skill. We do this by helping you, as a car driver, to enhance your skills, become safer and enjoy your driving more, becoming an Advanced and Thinking Driver rather than simply a road user.

We have been in Wolverhampton since 1983 and our great team of passionate volunteers have helped many hundreds of drivers of all levels and skills pass their Advanced Driving Test first time. We are currently focussing our attention on the less experienced driver and have appointed a Young Driver Advocate within the Group. We are now looking to support those people who have possibly only recently passed their DVSA Test and who know that they could improve their skills and capabilities but do not know how to go about this. Wolverhampton Advanced Motorists Group can now help you if you fall into this category. We are very informal and can work around your commitments to ensure that you become the better driver that you want to be whilst making the process fun and exciting. If you want further details in this then please use the Contact-us form link above or by sending our Young Driver Advocate an e-mail by clicking here.
We offer a FREE assessment drive to anyone with a full UK driving licence so contact us and let us help you improve your safety and skills.
Visit the Group Events page and see when our next meeting is, (usually the second Wednesday of the month in the evening), come along, you do not need to be a member of the IAM to come and have a chat with one of our Members and to find out what becoming an advanced, safer driver is all about. If you are interested we are also able to provide specific skill training for such things as Motorway Driving, Night Driving, Driving in Adverse Conditions and so on.
For those that want it we are able to give one on one support and guidance to improve particular skills or diminish your particular driving concerns, examples being motorway driving, night driving, driving in bad weather conditions
Priorities and Goals of the Institute of Advanced Motorists
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 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)
