"Skill for Life" is the IAMs most popular membership option, giving you - in one payment of £139.00 - everything you need to pass your Advanced Motorcycle Test and become a full Member of the IAM. The package includes:
• The IAM book "How to Pass Your Advanced Motorcycle Test"
• "Advanced Driving" the IAMs tri-annual Members magazine
• An initial assessment (carried out by your local IAM Group)
• All Test preparation work (undertaken by your local IAM Group)
• Entry into the Advanced Motorcycle Test
• IAM Associate status, with an automatic upgrade to full Membership of the IAM (upon passing the Advanced Driving Test within 12 months).
• Access to the "Members" area of this website (with details of Members' Events, Membership Services and Special Offers).
Preparation for the Advanced Test is conducted by volunteers in your local IAM Group. On completing your purchase online of "Skill for Life", you will receive a Group Directory covering all local IAM Groups for you to contact the one nearest to you (or the most convenient). Each group organises their "Observed Runs" locally. Most people can achieve "Test standard" after 6-8 observed runs (typically a fortnight apart), so you could be "Test ready" in 12-16 weeks.
