Local Groups

Auckland

The Auckland group has the largest membership amongst the local groups for motorcycles and a growing car group and enquiries are most welcome. If you’re interested in finding out more, please email the Chair.

The team currently comprises of:

  • Chair (Mark Leslie)
  • Membership Secretary – Motorcycles (Brett Hawkins)
  • Membership Secretary – Cars (John Heebink)

There is a need for Auckland members to receive better communication through a bi-monthly newsletter similar to other regions. So the Group is looking for a new volunteer to act as Newsletter Co-ordinator. If you are interested, contact us.

Motorcyclists meet for monthly observed rides on the last Sunday of the month. The starting location varies but the riders generally meet at 9:30am for a 10am start. Members receive an email each month with meeting details, new members are most welcome and can contact us for the next meeting details.

Motorcyclists also meet for social rides on a Sunday mid-Month. The starting location varies but the riders generally meet at 9:30am for a 10am start.

Central North Island

The Central North Island Group was established in late 2015 and grew out of a need for motorcycle riders in the region to avoid the lengthy travel times to and from Auckland for mentoring. Since then, membership growth has been strong, both in Waikato and the Bay of Plenty.

We offer one on one coaching to enable motorcycle riders and car drivers to attain their Advanced Test and beyond. We also run obligation-free initial assessments for potential members who are thinking of joining IAM.

CNI news and events are circulated to members through quarterly newsletters and the IAM Facebook national and regional pages.

Top of the South

A small group of IAM NZ motorcycle members has been active in the Nelson Marlborough area for about 4 years and they are growing in numbers and strength.

With some beautiful roads,  the Top of the South is an excellent area in which to develop Advanced Driving and Riding Skills.

We hold monthly rides and anyone interested in learning more is welcome to attend.

Our aim is to both enjoy motorcycling, to ride safely using the IAM system and to encourage others to become safer riders by working towards passing the Advanced Test.

For further information about IAM NZ activities in the “Top of the South” please refer to the Events Page or the Top of the South Facebook Page

Canterbury

Canterbury IAM NZ is a small group of enthusiastic riders and drivers from all walks of life.

The team includes:

  • Chair (Jeremy Slade and Mike Kemp)
  • Secretary/Treasurer (Jeremy Slade)
  • Associate Co-ordinator (Mike Kemp)

Month-end ride-outs happen the last Sunday of every month. We provide assistance to members in applying ‘Roadcraft” in riding or driving the roads of Canterbury. At our chosen destination, we have a catch up with each other’s busy lives and of course debrief the ride or drive.

We also participate in other local group and club rides whenever we can.

We offer anyone the opportunity to join us and find out more about Canterbury IAM NZ and the “Roadcraft” system of vehicle control
