An Introduction To The Group

Whether you are a newly qualified driver/rider or have many years experience would you like to improve your driving/riding skills, be safer on the road and reduce your chances of having an accident? Maybe you would like your driving/riding to be more relaxed and enjoyable so that you can confidently handle the variety of situations that you come across?

IAM RoadSmart promotes road safety by providing Advanced Driver and Advanced Rider courses by offering an Associate Membership Scheme whereby Associate Members receive guidance to enable them to become a better driver/rider. By the end of their course the Associate should be able to take, and pass, the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Driving/Riding Test.

The Scarborough & District Group always welcomes new members, we encourage participation from young and old at all levels of experience. We recognise that greater skills in driving and riding lead to more enjoyment as well as increased safety.

We also have a social side and have regular meetings at The Street which is in William Street Car Park in Scarborough. The Motorcycle Section also have regular meetings in Scarborough and a full programme of ride–outs.

If you are interested in improving your driving or riding skills, then please explore the website to find out how we can help.

We wish you happy and safe motoring and motorcycling.

Whatever your standard of driving or riding
you will benefit from our one to one courses.


This Is A Scam !!!

On Monday 1st August in the Ryedale area a couple were flagged down whilst in their vehicle by a young Asian male, when they spoke with him he stated he had run out of petrol and had no money to buy any, he offered his gold ring in exhange. This is a scam, if you are approached/flagged down please contact North Yorkshire Police 101 giving all details especially the car registration number.
