Who we are

East Surrey Advanced Motorists & Motorcyclists is one of two hundred plus local organisations affiliated to IAM RoadSmart
Based in Bletchingley, we serve the Eastern part of Surrey, West Kent and the Northern part of West Sussex.
Many of our members live on the southern edge of Greater London and others come from as far afield as Gloucester, Cornwall and North Wales!

We also have an Advanced Motorcyclists wing  within East Surrey IAM.

We are a registered charity, No. 1059630, whose aims are:

  • to improve the driving standards of our members
  • to heighten their enjoyment of motoring
  • to increase road safety

All group observers are full members of IAM RoadSmart. Our senior observers have also been tested by a Police Class One driver acting as an Institute examiner.
