We have had two IAM RoadSmart examiners attend our meetings. Tim Eden and Roger Ware each gave a wide-ranging talk covering many of the points that they encounter in their work for IAM RoadSmart.

Freda Richardson – together with her Observer – Chris Patten.

Chris is our newest Observer, he took on Freda as an associate whilst a Trainee, and qualified as a Local Observer whilst completing her coaching. Freda was extremely determined to succeed at the test, so we have a combination of our newest observer and our newly qualified oldest member – Freda is proud to say that she is 87 years old!
