Devon Advanced Motorcyclists is a registered charity (no: 1080988) and is affiliated to IAM RoadSmart.
The principal aim of DAM is to promote road safety. This is achieved by one to one training to develop advanced riding skills, making riding both safer and more enjoyable. The training program prepares riders for the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Riding Test. The riding techniques employed are based on those used by Police motorcyclists.
DAM has an enviable record in the quality of its training, with the group’s pass rate being close to 100%, higher than other IAMRoadsmart affiliated groups in the southwest region.
We are also an active social club for riders of all ages who hold or are training for the Advanced Certificate.
In addition to one-to-one training on the road, we arrange monthly evening theory training sessions to help you prepare for the test and to maintain your standard once qualified.
You will need your own motorcycle, which must be capable of maintaining the national speed limit. All are welcome, whether riding sports, adventure, cruiser, commuter or any other type of bike.
To register for training and join our club, you need to have held a full motorcycle licence for a minimum of 6 months and have some experience of riding. Our aim is to build on the basic skills required to pass the statutory riding test in order to bring you up to the advanced standard and good riding experience is invaluable.
You will enrol as an ‘associate member’on the IAM RoadSmart ‘Advanced Rider Course’ which provides you with one to one guidance with a fully qualified Observer. Together, you will complete a number of road based sessions, typically of about 3 hours duration, covering all aspects of advanced riding. Generally, about 5 to 7 sessions are required to reach the advanced standard, depending on how much riding practice you can fit in. Training sessions are arranged at mutually convenient times.
More information including the cost of the course can be found on our website in the "About Us" section
As all of our Observers are volunteers, we ask for a £70 contribution towards their fuel costs
