How To Join

Observed Sundays (the first Sunday of the month)

WVAM have Observed Sundays every first Sunday of the month at Ripley Village Hall. Arrive before 09.30 and enjoy a very reasonably priced bacon sandwich and chat to one of our Observers. You can join immediately (pay with cash or credit card) or you may prefer to take a no-obligation assessment ride to get a feel of whether taking the IAM Roadsmart Advanced Rider Course is for you.

Via the IAM Roadsmart Website

If you have joined IAM Roadsmart directly via their website or have received a gift membership, bring the membership form you received in the post down to us on any Observed Sunday. Which ever route you decide on, come and see us. You’ll find we are as much a cross section of Motorcyclists as you would find anywhere at any motorcycle meet. No one smokes a pipe and none of them wear slippers (at least not in the hall!).
