Well I have always been interested in driving and eventually passed my test in 2007. I looked into doing pass plus but it just didn’t seem very good. When I heard about IAM I jumped at the chance. Naturally once it came nearer to the time of my first drive, I started getting a little worried ……… silly me because it was really interesting.

The good thing about only driving for a year is that I didn’t really have a chance to build up bad habits. I guess like a lot of younger drivers though you do start to think well I’ve passed my test so I must be pretty good at this driving malarky. After a few drives, it became clear that I had a lot to learn and my observer did an excellent job of setting the pace.

One thing I did notice that kept creeping up was my driving was just far too hurried. Gear changes and clutch control were an absolute nightmare and now with a little tlc my car loves me for not being quite so brutal. Smooth and fluid have replaced jerky and rushed. Another thing to note is that with practise and a little time my reversing is so much more confident that I can do it all the time. Fantastic.

In a nutshell the IAM got me more interested in driving. It has shown me how to be a better and safer driver. I also have more knowledge about the world of driving which i can retain for the future. The people that give up their time for this are brilliant and want to make a difference. I can but try and do the same. You would be mad to pass this kind of opportunity up.

IAM I salute you! – Richard
