The main reason behind an observed ride is that no matter how much theory you do, there is no substitute for being out on the road in the real world.
All our observers go through an extensive training programme after they have passed their IAM Advanced Test. Only then will they be able to sit their examination to become a Qualified IAM Observer. This ensures you get a consistently high standard training.
After attending our IDCAM and subject to availablity, you will be assigned an Observer in your area. You will then go out on mutually arranged observed rides. These take place about every two weeks and will cover all aspects of your ride.
After each ride your Observer will give you a debrief over a cup of tea at a local cafe. Giving you points to practice until the next time.
Once your observer considers you up to scratch (Usually about 5 rides), you will then be given a final check ride with a Senior Observer, before being recommended for your test.
