Bournemouth & Dorset Advanced Drivers

Welcome to the Bournemouth & Dorset Advanced Drivers website, which is part of IAM RoadSmart, a UK wide charity promoting Road Safety and Driver Awareness in order to make our roads safer for all who use them.

We are a group with approximately 180 members, our catchment area covers the whole of Dorset including parts of West Hampshire and South Wiltshire.

The purpose of IAM RoadSmart is to promote safer driving. This is done by training our Associate members to the IAM test standard. This is carried out by our team of Observers, read more here.

In order that members don’t just pass their IAM RoadSmart test and never see each other again, we try to organise regular social meetings / events. These may vary from a talk by a Police Officer about the use of a stinger device, to someone who has taken part in a Dakar Rally, or even a visit from the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance helicopter crew. We also have also put on a number of motoring based activities that take place during the summer – taking advantage of the longer evenings, such as a Treasure Hunt and a Manoeuvrability competitions.

The Bournemouth & Dorset Advanced Drivers group also publishes regular newsletters which contains details of the social events, and many other useful pieces of IAM related information.
