Welcome to the website of Nottingham Advanced Drivers - the Nottinghamshire Group of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). We were formed by the merger of three previous IAM groups. in January 2014 the two previous Nottingham groups - Nottingham Trent and Nottingham Number One merged - and in August 2022 the Mansfield group merged with us.

Once you have joined the IAM, our volunteer Observers will work with you to bring your driving skills up to the standard required for the Advanced Test.

The IAM is now branded as IAM RoadSmart, and you will see this on most of the materials we use.

If you came here looking for motorcycle training, then you should visit the Nottingham Advanced Motocyclists site.

Some people join us simply to improve their skills or to gain more confidence on the road, and do not wish to take the test. We are perfectly happy to help you in any way we can with your driving, and whilst we encourage you take the test, we will not put any pressure on you to do so.

If you would like more information,  or if you would like to train with our group, then please complete our enquiry form.

For a good summary of what Advanced Driving is all about see this page on the main IAM site. See also the first FAQ on this page.

It is better to have a range of driving experience before starting the course, and as a general guide we recommend that you wait at least a year after passing your "L" test. There are no set rules though, so if you have any concerns or questions, please contact us to discuss your particular situation.
