Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

Just commented on there. I had replied to your comment there in a similar manner, but I've just removed that post after a reminder from our RSDM that we're posting there on the official IAM Facebook page, and in pointing out our role as observers we're really not towing the corporate line, so a bit...

Re: Speed limiters mandatory from 2022?

And just to add insult to injury, the IAM have come out in full support of this on Facebook... ... Why am I working as an Observer for you and paying to be a member when you come out with rubbish like this? I share your pain. But I have a way of mitigating the frustration, irritation and exasperati...

Re: Hello all

So I would venture to suggest that if there's a real disconnect it's between what IAM appears to offer and what their Examiners expect to see Associates demonstrate on their test. Again with hindsight, had I been made aware that I was expected to drive the test as if I were a Police driver on a &qu...

Re: Hello all

... Driving briskly, in an IAM sense, was/is not what I'm about. I'm not a slow-coach by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm not interested in an extra 5mph around corners or roundabouts - particularly if it means throwing my passengers around the car. Again, I sense that your observer hasn't e...

Re: Hello all

... I didn't mention above, but on my pre-test the observer also felt I should have been driving faster at one point. This was on an unclassified road that I'm not familiar with , with narrow sections, muddy patches at field entrances and blind bends/corners. It was NSL, and I was driving at 40-45m...

Re: Hello all

your pace/speed/progress will naturally rise It shouldn't, any increase in speed should be a conscious decision. Well as you snipped that bit off the front of my quote ;) What I clearly said was "if you get all the aspects of driving to the system working correctly". So conscious decision...

Re: Driving licences for UK citizens after March 2019

... I rather hope that this whole IDP thing gets sorted. I'm sure we didn't have this cattlermanure before we joined the EU I'm afraid we did. In addition to an IDL and insurance "green card", you had to have a £1,000 "Bail Bond", obtained from your insurer, before you could dri...

Re: Introduction

Hi I'm new here. I passed my IAM test in December and am quite keen to do the ROSPA one at a later date though there does seem to be rather a long waiting list for available tutors. I cancelled my application as I was fed up waiting. But then I thought that I could improve quite a bit so leaving RO...

^^^ What he said. Any law or regulation that cannot be policed or enforced is pointless.
