The Exeter and Torbay Group

This is the website of the Exeter and Torbay Advanced Motorists (ETAM).  

We are the friendly, local group of the IAM for Exeter, Torbay and the rural areas of East, Mid and South Devon.

Other local groups are listed in the Help section.  

ETAM was formed in the early 1970s and exists to help members to become more confident and safer drivers. This is achieved by preparing people (associates) to take the IAM Advanced Driving Test in order to become full IAM members.

We also arrange monthly meetings at Kennford near Exeter for all members (including associates, observers, full members, friends and guests).  These meetings could take the form of driving theory talks, practical driving sessions and other events of driving, social or general interest. To find out what is going on over the next few months go to the Events link.

Usually a new member (associate) is allocated to a qualified trainer (observer or senior observer) on an individual basis at a meeting place convenient to both. They will together go out in the associate’s vehicle for a suitable number of drives, following the advice in the IAM Advanced Driving Handbook (supplied).

We hope to see you at one of our meetings soon, where you will be welcomed and will be able to get to know us better.
