Trainee Observers

John Graves

If you are an existing IAM RoadSmart Observer and have moved to the area and would like to join our team of Observers please do get in contact. Likewise, if you enjoyed being observed and feel that you can help others pass their IAM RoadSmart test, then we’d love to hear from you.

How to become an Observer

Are you passionate about encouraging your local community to become better and safer drivers and riders? Or maybe you remember how great it felt when you passed your Advanced test? With your skills and experience you can pass on this feeling and support to others!

Become an Observer and help welcome many more into the IAM RoadSmart community. Through this volunteer role, you’ll provide the one-to-one observed drives or rides and play a key part in helping Associates pass their Advanced test. It’s a great feeling when they pass!

You’ll meet a range of people all with a shared interest of better motoring and be able to adapt the sessions around your lifestyle.
