Welcome to the Colchester Group of Advanced Motorists, formed in 1984.

We are motorists just like you, driving all types of vehicles, and from all walks of life; sharing a common aim to get the most out of our driving. Drivers are guided to IAM test standards using individual observed runs.

General training is available to everyone. Motoring topics are provided by guest speakers.

Group Meetings cancelled until further notice

Due to the current situation we have taken the decision
to cancel our group meetings until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience and we will keep you informed of any changes

IAM RoadSmart:

Following the significant change in Government advice about Coronavirus (Covid-19), IAM RoadSmart’s senior management team has met and agreed the following advice and guidance for groups, observers and examiners.

We appreciate that all groups are independent charities however the priority must be for IAM RoadSmart to contribute fully to efforts to minimise the spread of the virus nationwide and maintain the health and safety of all staff, members, associates, examiners and customers.

Therefore with immediate effect, groups are advised to:

  • Stop all observed runs for associates
  • Stop all meetings and social gatherings, including AGMs and recruitment activity

In addition, advanced driving and riding tests and assessments are suspended until further notice. All re-qualifications for Local and National Observers, Fellows and Masters are also suspended until further notice.

In light of these recommendations and actions, where an associate’s membership expires, we will extend it, at no additional cost, for up to a further six months to enable all associates to complete their coaching and take their test without disadvantage. We will not be providing refunds of course fees.

The latest guidance and advice can be found here on the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
