Updated ~ 11th May 2014 ~ CS

The main qualifiers are:

* IAM current paid up members who have passed the IAM Advanced Test.

Please note: the scheme is designed to reward IAM members because they are a better risk than the average driver, so multiple penalty points may exclude you from this scheme.

* 19 to 79 year olds (If you fall outside this age group, IAM Surety does have a number of quality UK insurers who will endeavour to find you car insurance outside this scheme).

Associate members (who have not yet passed the IAM test) will receive a straight 10% discount off RSA’s standard quote and policy. IAM Surety also offers comptetitive insurance rates for the families of IAM members who may not themselves be members, and discounted home insurance for members.

IAM Surety scheme acceptance criteria :

Young drivers

At a time when many insurers will not even cover drivers under 25 years of age, IAM Surety has now lowered its minimum age for cover to 19 years. There are conditions, however, notably:-

1. The driver must have passed the IAM test not less than one year before applying.

2. The vehicle must not be above insurance group 28.

Many young drivers make the mistake of buying a cheap car, believing that this will be easier to insure. however, it is not the value of the car that matters but its size and performance, so what is needed is usually a smaller car rather than a cheap one.  

The best course  for a young driver is to contact IAM Surety before buying the car -- they will advise on the most suitable models.
