In its drive to improve the skills of car drivers and motorcycle riders, registered charity Boston 
Advanced Motorists (BAM) is continuing its successful Be Better – Be Safer campaign throughout 2015.

This year, the charity – which also covers Holbeach, Long Sutton and Spalding – is giving the first ten drivers and the first ten riders who join the 
Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) Skill for Life programme 50 per cent of the £149 programme fee back once they have passed the IAM test.

They’ll also get one year’s RAC Roadside and Recovery breakdown cover (single, personal cover).

The Group’s chairman, Nigel Bean said: “Although there has been a dramatic fall in Lincolnshire road casualties since 1999, 2014 wasn’t a good year.

“Provisional figures show a 14 per cent increase in the number of people killed compared with 2013.

“Thus our campaign focusses on helping drivers and riders to be safer, happier and less stressed when driving, improving their confidence and their ability.”

“By passing the IAM test, you halve your chances of being involved in own-fault accidents. What’s more, 93 per cent of IAM members over 19 can get cheaper car insurance.”

Boston Advanced Motorist has an excellent record. In 2014, BAM achieved almost twice the number of test passes compared with the average for the IAM Central and Wales Region. BAM also achieved three time the region average for F1RST passes, the IAM’s highest possible test grade. This is all thanks to BAMs team of qualified and hard-working volunteers.
