Driving Standards
The Reasons for Focusing on Driver Training
• 75% of drivers believe their driving is above average
• Most drivers involved in a collision do not believe they may
have contributed to it
• Many of these motorists do not learn from these mistakes
• Nobody has ever confessed to being a BAD driver

The IAM Difference
• Statistically, IAM Advanced Drivers are safer.
18 month study concluded that “advanced driver training
produces safer drivers and lower accident involvement”,
with measurable improvements in knowledge, skills and
attitude
(2006, Brunel University)
• Driving is less stressful; you’ll take
pride in your driving or riding and enjoy it much more
• The IAM Commercial division produces a 40%
reduction in company car collisions
