IAM RoadSmart In the Media

Update July 2023: Following member feedback and enquiries (and since some of the interviews were recorded). IAM RoadSmart NZ is pleased to announce that from July 2023 we now welcome members, subject to a competency assessment, who have their restricted licence in the category wanted. This means we can assist younger and/or less experienced riders and drivers to be better and safer on our roads.

Personally speaking, I believe most motorcycle riders would have welcomed the insight we can now provide at the earlier stages of riding. However, please note, we are not a training environment for those in need of professional training, but rather a mentor to assist in the development of achieving higher standards and hazard awareness.

I am very grateful to all our volunteers, without whom this would simply not be possible, thank you.
