I carry out pre-test assessments and conduct mock tests prior to our associates taking their IAM test. I enjoy giving demonstration drives, when necessary, to explain a technique and also giving talks to other groups. I have the honour to be President of the Group.

Apart from being the Group Secretary I am also a part time Observer. I going out on runs with Associates where we are able to explore the roads of Derbyshire whilst trying to promote the Safe, Smooth, Progressive message of the IAM and help people to rid themselves of habits acquired since passing their L test. The safer, smoother style just makes driving less of a strain and a chore, which is the IAM aim.

I have been associated with Chesterfield IAM for 26 years and it has helped me in so many ways with my career and personal life. I hope that I have progressed sufficiently during that period to continue to learn and also to pass on the IAM ideas to anybody else wishing to progress in their driving ambitions.

I joined the group in 2000 and became a qualified observer in 2007. I’m now retired having previously worked as a carer. My main interests include driving (obviously!) and travelling.

I passed my basic car test in 1960 and driving has always been a part of my life and career. I joined the group in 2008 and passed my IAM car test in the same year. I became a qualified observer in 2010. Previously I was an electrician but now that I am retired I have time to take associates out to offer guidance to car drivers.
