By going to the IAM Roadsmart Website
You can join IAM Roadsmart directly via their website but if you want to be allocated to WSAM which covers West Sussex and the surrounding area, ensure you enter ‘WEST SUSSEX ADVANCED MOTORCYCLISTS’ into the “Your preferences section”. Once allocated to WSAM, we will contact you with further information.
Initial membership is as an Associate Member (the only prerequisite to joining is a full motorcycle licence and a road-legal motorcycle capable of attaining and maintaining the national speed limit). Full Member status is attained when you pass the advanced riding test.
WSAM is an affiliate group of IAM RoadSmart so there are different types of membership within each organisation. You become an Associate Member of each organisation while learning to pass the advanced motorcycle test, then Full Membership once you have passed.
