Joining IAM RoadSmart

We have three categories of membership:

  • Associate: the initial “entry” level which is available immediately upon joining
  • Friend: For those who continue to be a member but who choose to not take their advanced test.
  • Full: Open to drivers and riders, with a full New Zealand Licence in the appropriate class and have passed the appropriate IAM RoadSmart advanced test.

The cost of membership is just $60.00 for 12 months. When you join there is a one-off fee of $50.00 which covers among other things the test fee but will be treated as a contribution if no test is taken.

To become an IAM RoadSmart Member:

  • Complete the online application form (no payment is necessary at this stage)
  • Your local group will then arrange an initial assessment ride/drive with an Observer who will explain more fully the processes and goals. There is no cost or obligation involved.
  • Subject to the initial assessment, you are invited to join, paying the annual membership fee and test fee (currently $110) once full payment is received you will then become an Associate Member. Thereafter it is just $60 on an annual basis.
  • As an Associate member, you are assigned to one of our qualified Observer Teams and/or qualified Observers to mentor you to our Advanced Test standard.

Once you pass our Advanced Test you will be awarded full membership status at no extra charge for the remainder of the financial year in which you join.

To maintain your membership you will need to pay an annual membership fee of just $60.00.

Want to join more than one category?

No problem. You can join a second category (e.g. motorcycle in addition to car or vice versa) by paying just a second test fee of $50, once received, you can start being observed in the second category. Your annual subscription remains the same, regardless of the number of categories you’ve joined.

To maintain your membership to all classes, you need only to pay one annual membership fee of $60.00.
