Grade X Member Achieves Highest IAM Pass
Read about the youngest IAM Pass First young driver in the UK.
The Under 17 Car Club further proves that its methodology and commitment to young driver education delivers an industry first with the IAM. As part of our ongoing commitment to educating young drivers, the Club and IAM are jointly working to smooth the transition from pre-licensed driving to advanced driver.
This first test was carried out as part of that developing relationship for the IAM to understand our standards and expectations and to see if they align with theirs.
We are the only young driver club that consistently delivers effective young driver training and driver experience like no other does for a fraction of the cost of other schemes. All we need is your commitment and we can help your children become effective and safer drivers when they obtain their full license.

The Under 17 Car Club
Our philosophy promotes safe driving skills and attitudes through our continuing programme of volunteer run pre-licence driver development events.
We believe that the most effective way to enable this vulnerable group to respond to the challenges faced by novice drivers is by:
- Substantially increasing their awareness and understanding of road risk ;
- Supporting them in developing a positive safe-driving attitude;
- Increasing their level of technical competence as drivers; and
- Learning to drive to a high standard while having great fun and meeting new friends.
