About us

Advanced Rider Course

Advanced riding is about taking that next step. Whether it’s about challenging your own standards or reassuring a loved one who struggles to share your enthusiasm, our Advanced Rider Course can make you a better rider.

For a FREE one-hour no-obligation taste of our Advanced Rider Course, just turn up with your bike on any Saturday between 9am and 9.30am at The Stockyard Truckstop, Bramley in Rotherham.

On the Advanced Rider Course, our qualified observers will prepare you for the Advanced Riding Test. Almost all of our sessions take place on Saturday mornings, but if you can’t make this we have some limited opportunities for you to be offered a weekday ride out.

Our observers may ask for a contribution towards their petrol costs.

Local & National Observer training

Observing with us is a thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable way to help make our roads safer by coaching and mentoring drivers and riders to be the best that they can be. You’ll volunteer to provide these skills through our national group network.

As an observer with the IAM you’ll provide one to one observed drives or rides as part of a local IAM group. These generally fall into regular times and patterns to fit in with your other commitments, they can vary by group and we can currently promise to keep you as busy as you wish to be with our associates waiting to start their courses!


Social Activities

We value the social aspect of riding with fellow bikers on often unfamiliar roads, stopping at interesting cafes for a chat, a drink and maybe a meal. Full members have found that our rides out help them to improve their riding skills even further. Some also train to be an observer and help others to improve their riding.

We let all our members know about planned events through this website, emails and our RAM riders Facebook page. We hold occasional group nights with invited speakers, and arrange a traditional Christmas dinner for members and their families. So, if you’re looking to make new friends, get in touch or just come and meet us!
