Welcome to Northampton Advanced Motorists
Our aim is to reduce road traffic collisions by helping drivers improve their driving, knowledge and skill. We do this by helping you, as a car driver, to enhance your skills, become safer and enjoy your driving.
We have been in Northamptonshire since 1978 and our great team of passionate volunteers have helped over 900 drivers pass their Advanced Driving test. We are affiliated to IAM RoadSmart (Institute of Advanced Motorists).
We offer a FREE assessment drive on the first Sunday of each month (see What We Do).
Our membership is mainly from Northamptonshire (e.g. Wellingborough, Northampton, Towcester, Brackley, Rushden, Irthlingborough and all surrounding villages. There are two other local Groups, the Corby and District Group cover Corby and Kettering, and the Northamptonshire Advanced Motorcyclists cover the whole of Northamptonshire.
We run events for drivers within Northamptonshire including our very popular Motorway Day (in conjunction with Northamptonshire Police).
Our social events for our members include Track Days at Millbrook Proving Ground, skid pan sessions, and ten pin bowling. We also run motoring based events including motoring quizzes and manoeuvering tests for other organisations such as the 2011 Northamptonshire WI Driver of the Year competition.
We produce a quarterly newsletter and monthly news bulletins that keep you informed of the Group's activities, members who pass their test plus lots more.
We are a friendly fun loving group, with over 175 members. We take great pride in helping drivers achieve their potential.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we are committed to improving road safety by enhancing driving standards.
