We regret that following the advice issued by the Prime Minister on COVID-19,  all face-to-face Northampton Advanced Motorist meetings, activities and events have been suspended. This suspension applies to all face to face activities and will be until further notice.

We are holding events online including our Associates Classroom session and open Observer Development webinars – see events

We are one of over 280 local IAM RoadSmart groups – our aim is to reduce road traffic collisions by helping you enhance your skills, become a safer driver and enjoy your driving.

We have been in Northamptonshire since 1978. Our great team of passionate volunteers deliver the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Driving Course and have helped 1,014 drivers achieve IAM RoadSmart Advanced Driving status, and many others to improve and enjoy their driving.

Our membership is mainly from Northamptonshire e.g. Brackley, Daventry, Irthlingborough, Northampton, Rushden, Towcester, Wellingborough and all surrounding villages. For a list of post codes we cover, click here (you are of course free to choose any local Group that suits your circumstances).

This year we are thrilled to be able to offer 30 young drivers (under 26 years old) the opportunity of a £100 cash back on passing the IAM RoadSmart Advanced test with us. We are able to do this courtesy of a grant from our Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner. For more information see our young driver page to book a free taster session.

In Northamptonshire there are two other local Groups, the Corby and District Car Group cover Corby and Kettering, and Northamptonshire Advanced Motorcyclists cover the whole of the county.

We run driving events within Northamptonshire including our very popular Motorway Day (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.

A friendly fun loving group, we have over 165 members. We take great pride in helping drivers achieve their potential.
