The cost of membership is just $60.00 for 12 months. At the time of joining, a test fee of $50.00 is also payable.
If you decide to join a second division (e.g. Motorcycle and/or the Car division) you currently pay for only an additional test fee of $50 before you start being observed in the second division. Your annual subscription remains the same, regardless of the number of divisions you join.
To maintain your membership you will be asked to pay an annual membership fee of $60.00. Reminders will be emailed ahead of time. Members of more than one division can enjoy the benefits of each division, not just the one they originally joined.
As a member, you will receive a copy of Roadcraft. Roadcraft is the police handbook for Rider/Driver training. It’s used by all emergency services and forms a key reference for driving instructors. Updates for this new edition include a new overtaking chapter with separate sections on passing stationary vehicles, single-stage overtakes, multi-stage overtakes and new explanations of advanced concepts, such as limit points on left-hand bends.
The Roadcraft System of Bike/Car Control forms the basis for the standards applied by an advanced driver. This is described by the principles set down in our own IAM Roadsmart NZs ‘How to be an Advanced Rider/Driver’. The content of both the IAM Roadsmart NZ’s manual and Roadcraft is very broad and as a guideline, your ride/drive should be based on these main headings relating to Advanced Driving:
Safe, Systematic, Smoothness, Progress and Restraint
