Re: Saying hello from a government mandated safe distance

Welcome, Hugh. Tidy little motor, the Golf R - and as I understand it the Bristol group is well equipped with the expertise to help you make the most of it.

I look forward to our paths crossing somewhere along your driving journey.

The IAM does not employ its examiners. We are volunteers, just as Observers are.

Re: Social distancing and observing

Soon it's not going to be Mike Quinton's problem, so I'd look to the trustees for longer term guidance.

And what is the cat amongst?

Re: An interesting development - RegLocal

There's an IMI-validated examiners' qualification now, too. I took it alongside my quality assurance check last year.

Re: What does this sign mean?

As well you know, the sign qualifies the road markings. Thank goodness you aren't having to deal with the driving around irreligious shrines!
