Who We Are

Wey Valley Advanced Motorcyclists (WVAM) are a motorcycle club providing Advanced Motorcycle Training in Surrey, East Hampshire, West London, South Berkshire and North Sussex. WVAM are affiliated to IAM RoadSmart. WVAM has charitable status (registered charity number 1050868) and is run entirely by volunteers dedicated to motorcycling.
We have two main aims:

  • To improve rider safety by coaching our associate members to pass the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Course (ARC) .
  • As a motorcycle club to run a full program of social rides and other events that will appeal to our members.

The club was founded in 1984, and has a wealth of experience to call on. We have in excess of 500 members, with around 80 Observer members providing the skills to associates to prepare them for their advanced test. Our well-established Observer training scheme also enables you to further improve your skills and knowledge after passing your Advanced Rider test.

Wey Valley members ride a wide variety of machines ranging from scooters & cruisers to classics and the latest sports bikes, so you will be welcome whatever you ride, but you must have a bike which can progressively accelerate to and easily reach the national speed limit.
Once you have passed your advanced test you don’t need to stop. Remember – the best riders never stop learning. We hope you will continue to be a member of WVAM, improving your skills and experience on one of the many courses the club runs, or even participate in further training to become an Observer and learn to pass on the skills that you have learnt.
