Masters

 

The IAM RoadSmart Masters standard is the highest civilian motorcycle award and offers the ultimate challenge for riders. This is only open to current IAM members.

Building on your skills as an existing advanced rider, the Masters programme will help to enhance and develop your ability even further in the following areas:

  • Applying cornering principles
  • Assessing, planning and executing safe overtaking manoeuvres
  • Recognising opportunities to make safe progress (within the speed limits)
  • Improving observation, anticipation and awareness consistent with vehicle speed
  • Applying sound judgement of speed and distance
  • Delivering a fluent, relevant and continuous commentary
  • We recommend that potential motorcycle Masters candidates read the Full Control document first.

Once you and your mentor feel that you are ready, we will offer you a ninety minute test that includes both a theory session and an extended drive or ride. To challenge you the Masters test will be conducted on roads unfamiliar to you, and may therefore involve travelling a fair distance from where you live. You will be scored on a series of criteria and able to achieve either a Pass or a Distinction award. 

 

 

If you pass your Masters test with a Distinction and you agree to act as a Mentor to new riders, LAM gives you £299 cashback!
