IAM Update 11th September 2019

Introducing our member-get-member campaign

The IAM RoadSmart membership marketing team are launching a member-get-member ‘Sharing is Caring’ scheme, which will run throughout the year. The aim of this campaign is to encourage existing members to invite a friend or family member to purchase the Advanced Driver/Rider Course, with the incentive of a £20 discount if they book a course. They will be able to claim this discount by calling our customer care team and quoting their unique voucher code, which will be the referee’s membership number. There will be a landing page coming soon with more information.

IAM RoadSmart - Sharing is Caring Campaign

Reduction in Masters requalification and retest pricing

IAM RoadSmart is delighted to announce that following feedback at the spring forums we have reviewed the price of the Masters 5 year requalification and the Masters re-test. From Monday 9 September the price of the Masters 5 year requalification will be £149, however, this will be free of charge to IAM RoadSmart Masters mentors and examiners. The price for any Masters re-test will also be £149. IAM RoadSmart will refund the difference to everyone who paid for the 5 year requalification or re-test at the original price since June 2018. There is no need to apply for the refund as this will be processed automatically; all recipients will be sent a notification email.

Classic car campaign will run through October

Due to the volume of upcoming classic car shows and events, IAM RoadSmart’s classic car campaign will be running until the end of October. If your group is attending an upcoming classic car show don’t forget you can offer the Advanced Driver and Rider Course with a 15% discount using the code classic15. This offer is available to all, not just classic car owners. Please contact Sam Turner-Meyern at Samantha.Turner@iam.org.uk to order promotional flyers to use at shows and events.
