Motorcycle Group – Safety Guidelines
With the introduction of the Health & Safety at Work Act 2015, IAM NZ must take formal steps to ensure the safety of its members and the public. The attached document assists Regional Groups to meet these obligations.
Motorcycle Group – Social Rides
Social rides are an important IAM NZ activity. The following guidelines have been developed to help ensure that rides are run in in a safe way and in accordance with the standards that IAM NZ stands for.
Observer Examiner Clarification Guide
The following document has been put together in order to provide guidance in relation to ‘Common Confusions’ identified with both Observing and Examining within the IAM. It has been compiled and adapted from the guidance provided by Examiners across the UK and with input from observers from New Zealand. Suggestions for further feedback or clarification of confusing or ambiguous guidance should be emailed to your regional group so it can be vetted and passed on to the chief examiner for further evaluation and inclusion.
IAM Driving Standard
Similar to the Motorcycle Group’s Riding Standard, a Driving Standard has now been developed for car members. It is available in both physical and soft copy – which can be downloaded here.
IAM Riding Standard
A Riding Standard has been developed for motorcycle members. It is available in both physical and soft copy – which can be downloaded here.
