The process of an IAM Associate Member getting their driving up to a standard high enough to allow them to sit (and hopefully pass) the IAM Advanced Test is done through a series of Observed Drives.
These normally last around 60-90 minutes and take place at weekly intervals at a date, time and location suitable to both the Associate Member and their Observer. They take place using the Associate's car with the Observer in the passenger seat giving route directions and advice.
If you have any questions about Observed Drives within the Fife Group, please contact our Chief Observer.

There's no need to worry that when you go on an Observed Drive you'll have a photographer sitting in the back seat! In these pictures, the Observer is Fife Group's Senior Observer, Secretary and Newsletter Editor, Fred Davidson add the driver under instruction is Group member Eric Smith.
