My name is Scott Armour and I am a member of the Kingdom Of Fife Group of Advanced Motorists.
I currently live in Auchtermuchty with my wife and 2 daughters and I work full-time in Edinburgh for an Australian software company. In the past I have also worked part-time as a Driving Instructor in Fife and Edinburgh.
I passed my IAM test back in 1993 in Ayrshire, five years after passing my standard driving test, and joined the Kingdom Of Fife Group in 2005 after moving to the area. After having been an Observer for the Group for several years, in July 2014 I went on to sit and pass my IMI National Observer Qualification, and I am also a Local Observer Assessor for the Group.
As well as being a National Observer for the Kingdom Of Fife Group, I am also a member of the Committee, with my current roles including Treasurer and Webmaster.
In addition to my IAM test, I have also sat and passed my RoSPA Advanced Driving Test in 2012 and 2015, achieving Gold Grade on both occasions.
I currently develop and maintain the Fife IAM website, so if you have any suggestions of what you'd like to see added to this site then please let me know (you can do this by clicking here).
So, what's this Advanced Driving and IAM all about then ? Let's start off by getting rid of the most common misconceptions - it's no more about driving everywhere at 55mph than it is about driving like a lunatic doing handbrake turns !
It is about Driving Safely and using Observation and Anticipation to allow you to make good progress whilst allowing for the mistakes of other road users.
Sounds simple enough ?    Feel up to the challenge ?    Why don't you give it a try ?
