Great driving assessment for those many many people who need it. Sadly they think they don't. I have been an I AM observer for 6 years and truly belive I have helped improve people's driving and subsequently their's and others safety.

Is there any catch in this to see if your a better driver, like do they try and sell you some sort of products or services once your assessment is done

No catch but I can recommend the Skill for Life course. I did it a few years ago and it transformed my driving. I am back to actually enjoying my driving and it has improved my observational skills and driving technique.

The IAM is a charity and many services like the Skill for Life course are provided by groups local to your area and staffed by fully trained volunteers who don't get paid for their time.

Obviously. they are a business and needs to promote themselves like every business.
Be a good listener, thank them, get all the brochures about all their services and say I'll ruminate on all these informations and shall get back to you if needed and thank them again for a lovely lesson. ;)

Undoubtedly. They'll no doubt try to flog you one or other of these, depending on your assessed competence: https://www.iam.org.uk/shop/motorists-shop/category/20186

Agreed, it's not a deal as such but at this time of year it's a good idea to raise awareness of such schemes.

Sorry, should have added there that I'm a member of the IAM and have done 5 or 6 independant track days, so at this point for me more practice is probably more beneficial than more instruction. Even so, if this deal was for a circuit nearer me like Snetterton I'd definitely give it a go.
I've not been that involved with my local IAM group recently, but a few years back they seemed very dismissive of track days, skidpan training etc, the attitude being that "if you're driving to the standards expected of an IAM member you shouldn't need to know how to recover a skid" (presumably they also feel that seatbelts, airbags and driver aids are unnecessary too), so I'm pleased to see they're changing their perspective and starting to branch into this kind of thing.
Oh, should also have said, it may sound a bit much spending £100+ on brakes just to do the odd track day, but if they happen to be due for service anyway it's a worthwhile upgrade.

I had 7 sessions of 5 laps per session. If you are using your own car unless its built for the track you will find 5 laps enough for your brakes as by then they will be smoking hot and not very responsive. The £36 did cover me on my insurance for the track day as I was an IAM member and I suppose they thought of a certain driving standard to begin with. You do not drive alone you have the instructer with you, but mine allowed me to floor my car on the straights and got my edition 30 GTI up to a clocked 147 mph. I thought the £199 was well worth itlast year so this deal is even better value for money. Where else can you learn to corner and drive correctly at speeds like that leagally? I'm a petrol head and only wish I didn't live so far away nearest tract to me is over 250 miles. Hope this helps.

Thanks for replying. Sounds like a good deal in that you get instruction for the time (is it one of the MSV circuit instructors or an IAM one?), but time wise it's not so great, I guess it depends if you have much track experience (I've voted hot though). Incidentally, I take your point about brakes overheating after a few laps - if you are looking at doing more track driving you'd be surprised how much you can improve the brakes by just changing the rubber brake hoses to braided, replacing the fluid with dot 5.1, and changing brake pads for slightly higher spec ones (about £100-130 total for parts)!

You won't be covered by your standard car insurance on track. I'm in two minds about this as it doesn't actually guarantee how much track time or tuition time you get - 6 sessions could be just 90 mins total. Just for comparison, standard track days (either sessioned or open pit lane) cost from £99 upwards depending on the track and time of year. I'm not voting as I don't know what you get. Perhaps 999kernow could tell us roughly how long he got on track last time?
I took out extra insurance for the day, it cost me £36, however last year they had cars there that you could use maybe same this year

I've read the details again and it doesn't include 3rd party insurance.

It is cover for you (physiotherapy) and your bike (repair or replacement) after a non-fault accident. I don't know if their definition of "non-fault" means "we can find someone that we can sue for damages"

seems a little dodgy to me :-If your bike is damaged beyond repair in a non-fault accident we will pay in full to replace it on a new-for-old like-for-like basis regardless of value.All bikes can theoretically be repaired by replacing the damaged components. A bit like triggers broom ;)


But unlike Trigger's broom, to "rebuild" a bike component by component would cost significantly more than replacing it with a brand-new one.

it states

If your bike is damaged beyond repair in a non-fault accident we will pay in full to replace it on a new-for-old like-for-like basis regardless of value.

Doesnt say anything about beyond economical repair :)

anyway, point is moot now.

But unlike Trigger's broom, to "rebuild" a bike component by component would cost significantly more than replacing it with a brand-new one, ergo the insurance company wouldn't go that route.

If you come off your bike and a bus drives over it there won't be a huge deal of it left to repair!

but in theory it could still be repaired lol

initial policy wording says only pays out if it cant be repaired but OP since found further info to reveal it will pay for any repairs too. Hence my intial thoughts on it being dodgy. Looks a good deal now.


If a bus runs over my road bike I assure you it wont be repairable! :)
do you think 'spouse' only applies to married couples or common law couples?
