IAM RoadSmart is pleased to announce that from Monday 12 April we began our return to bike and car on-road training across the UK. As rules may be different in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, we are advising members to check regional and local restrictions as these are still constantly changing.
Our Trainers and Observers will be required to adhere to all recommendations and precautions in line with the latest government advice.
This is to ensure that we manage any risks and maintain the safety of all involved. We will advise members about extra measures when confirming booking.
We ask that you immediately advise the bookings team, your Observer, and your local group if any of the following apply:
• You have tested positive for COVID-19 and should be self-isolating
• You are showing symptoms of COVID-19 and should be self-isolating
• You are part of a household where residents are any of the above.
We have no legal standing to enquire about the status of a vaccination, or any other testing regime. This applies to Associates, delegates, mentors, Observers, Trainers, or colleagues. As such we will not ask this question as it has data protection implications. Vaccination is not a mandatory requirement and we must respect an individual’s right to choose what is right for them.
At this difficult time, we ask for your patience, and consideration. We will only ask for information to confirm everyone is willing to ride or drive together. If in doubt don’t go out.
Where appropriate IAM RoadSmart Associate membership has been extended.
We will continue to monitor the government’s advice in different regions and advise you of any changes or extra requirements to ensure we play our part in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Our Customer Care team is available between 8:30am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Phone lines are likely to be busy and wait times maybe longer. We thank you in advance for your patience and will answer your query as quickly as we can.
We appreciate your ongoing support during these difficult times and hope that you keep safe and well.
