Organisation: IAM RoadSmart
Date uploaded: 11th June 2013
Date published/launched: May 2013
More than 3,000 IAM motorcycle members completed an online survey about on the short and long term impact of the IAM Advanced Motorcycle test on their riding.
This report shows that preparing for and taking the IAM Advanced Motorcycle test brings positive and lasting benefits for motorcycle riders. The vast majority of people who take the course say it makes them feel safer, more confident, more attentive, more observant and more decisive in their riding. They also say that it adds to their enjoyment on the road.
IAM bikers report smoother progress and a more conscious approach to their on-road behaviour. 61% of those surveyed said they had avoided being involved in an accident since taking the advanced test. Awareness of other road users including pedestrians and cyclists was raised as was knowledge of hazards and difficult conditions. 81% of those surveyed say that have passed on what they had learned to friends or family and would recommend the course.
