IAM RoadSmart, a major road safety charity, has become an official supporter of TyreSafe, the UK’s tyre safety awareness organisation.
Formed in 1956, IAM RoadSmart has 60 years’ experience in making Britain’s roads safer by improving driver and rider skills through coaching and education. With more than 200 groups nationwide and 7000 drivers and riders actively participating in its acclaimed and widely-recognised courses, IAM RoadSmart is considered the leading advanced driver training provider in the UK.
IAM RoadSmart Chief, Sarah Sillars, said: “Over the course of the charity’s 60-year history, our trainers and coaches have enhanced the skills of nearly half-a-million drivers, and with our recent relaunch, we have ambitions to increase the number of participants through a broader offering. Educating drivers and riders on all aspects of road safety will remain an essential part of that, and access to TyreSafe’s expertise and materials will be a considerable asset.”
Stuart Jackson, chairman, TyreSafe, said: “IAM RoadSmart is not only a provider of driver training in the UK, it’s also one of the most respected names in the automotive industry. Its official support for TyreSafe reflects the growing number of organisations acknowledging the need to raise the tyre safety awareness agenda among Britain’s motorists. Tyres are one of a vehicle’s primary safety features and need regular maintenance checks to ensure they are roadworthy – we welcome IAM RoadSmart’s support in spreading this message to Britain’s motorists.”
