Become a Better Driver For 10% Less

Published 06 July 2016

Even a McLaren Formula 1 test driver like Darren Turner can be distracted while driving. So now IAM Roadsmart is offering a course to help drivers stay focused, and to HonestJohn readers it's at a 10% discount.

See what happened to Darren in this video:

To tie in the video, from now to the end of August IAM Roadsmart is offering 10% off its Advanced Driver Course by quoting the reference code RACE10. The standard price is £149. It can be redeemed by calling 0300 303 1134.

Not only that, anyone booking with this code will be entered into a prize draw to win a one hour session in a racing simulator for themselves and a friend at Base Performance Simulators in Banbury, with one-to-one expert tuition.

The IAM Roadsmart Advanced Driver Course increases your confidence on the road. It improves your skills and knowledge, is DVSA accredited, can result in cheaper insurance and boosts your confidence

In the 60 years since the IAM was founded, half a million people have qualified as advanced drivers on its Advanced Driver course – the only one accredited by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. With a commitment of three to six months to complete the comprehensive course and some practice, you could add your name to the list. Sign up and you’ll receive a welcome pack and course manual, followed by an introduction to your nearest local IAM RoadSmart group of volunteers. These skilled experts, all Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) qualified, will take you through a number of observed drives in your own car. Each session with your expert lasts a couple of hours and you’ll focus on specific skills to develop across a wide range of subjects. When you’re ready, you’ll take the advanced test.

As well as gaining recognition for your skills, once you’re qualified you’ll become a full IAM member and you can often receive insurance benefits as a result - around 90% of our members do.  You’ll also feel more confident and safer on the road and if you drive for a living an Advanced Driver qualification can add Brownie points to your CV.
