About us

MBEAM members come from a cross-section of the biking world and this is reflected in their preference for the bikes they ride. Our aims are to:
  • Improve road safety by raising riding standards
  • Prepare people for their IAM Advanced Riding Test
Members of the public are invited to take out Associate Membership They are then given free on-the-road guidance by trained Observers who have passed both the IAM Advanced Test and further Observer training. The course includes urban, rural and motorway riding. Completion of the course enables the Associates to take their test with an IAM examiner who is a Class 1 Police Rider. Passing the test will raise your riding standards by increasing your skills of anticipation and competence. You will also become more confident and aware of what is going on around you. As a result of your improved skills your bike will also benefit because the wear and tear on it will be reduced and, if that wasn’t enough, you can save on your bike insurance too! The group holds regular events and rideouts. We also circulate a newsletter and have an online forum where members can meet, ask questions, discuss biking and non-biking issues, etc.

I’ve been asked about our training sessions and how they work – so: each ‘programme’ is made up of six core sessions, usually one session a week. You’ll be asked to practice your skills regularly between meetings. You are assigned an observer and you’ll be kept in close contact via radio during the sessions. After the last session your progress is review and assessed and at that stage you may be ready to take the test. If you’re not quite ready, further help and advice will be given. If you’ve a question or would like to know anything else regarding the training session, please dm me or drop me an email [email protected] ... See MoreSee Less
