Car Observer
Primarily an Observer is a volunteer without whom the Group cannot achieve it's aim to advance road safety.
An Observer must be a Member of the Group and a Member of the IAM who has passed the Institute of Advanced Motorists Advanced Driving Test.
An Observer has passed further tests within the Group both to improve their driving standard and to give assistance and advice to associates.
Only when they have achieved the high standards set by the Group are they appointed as Group Observers.
There is no "typical" Observer, they come in all ages from 20s to 70s and have a wide range of "day time jobs" and other interests.
What they all have in common is the dedication to improve road safety through promoting Advanced Driving.
Why do we need Observers?
The Group is dedicated to assisting drivers in improving their driving to a level at which they can pass the IAM Test.
This is achieved by a number of methods including lectures, handouts and our group video but the most important aspect is the guidance given during driving sessions by the Observers.
Without Observers we cannot continue this work - Observers are the lifeblood of the Group.
What to do if you want to become an Observer?
If you would like to become an Observer please tell you're Observer or contact our Observer Coordinator, who will be happy to help you.
