IAM Roadsmart

27 April 2016

IAM RoadSmart is the new name for the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) . The change will unify the charity with its subsidiaries IAM Drive

The rebrand is the result of extensive research1 which highlighted a number of key findings. Firstly, drivers’ biggest concern is actually other drivers. Safety and fuel efficiency came out as the biggest motivators for younger drivers to take further training while insurance continues to be the most effective incentive.
