To join BWAM as an Associate, you will need to purchase a Skill for Life package directly from the IAM, currently costing £139. The package includes:
- The IAM book 'How to be a Better Rider' (new edition for 2009)
- 'Advanced Driving' the IAM's tri-annual Members' magazine
- An initial assessment by one of our Observers
- All Test preparation work
- Entry into the Advanced Driving/Riding Test
- IAM Associate status, with an automatic upgrade to full Membership of the IAM (upon passing the Advanced Driving/Riding Test within 12 months)
- Access to the Members' area of the IAM Web site (with details of Members' Events, Membership Services and Special Offers)
To apply for BWAM membership, please fill in and submit the form below. You will be contacted initially by the Membership Secretary, Andrew Carr, and then by one of our Observers to arrange a suitable day and time for your assessment. Most people can achieve Test standard after 6-8 observed runs (typically a fortnight apart), so you could be Test Ready in 12-16 weeks.
* If you live, work or study in Dorset and purchase a Skill for Life package from the IAM, BWAM may be able to offer you a rebate of £70, provided you complete the syllabus, are observed by BWAM and take the advanced motorcycle test. Contact the Membership Secretary for full details.
If you are interested in joining BWAM as an existing IAM Member, for example, if you have moved into the Bournemouth & Wessex area from elsewhere, please contact the Membership Secretary .
