Welcome to the High Wycombe Group IAM

The High Wycombe Group of Advanced Motorists is a charitable organisation whose aim is to educate drivers to a safer standard of driving through the Advanced Driver Course. As group of volunteers, we are affiliated with IAM Roadsmart. We do so by mentoring Associate members, until they reach the required standard to pass the Advanced Driver test. The group covers a wide area from Watlington in the west to Pinner in the east, Stoke Mandeville to the north and Slough to the south. See About Us for more details.

Sad news

With deep regret we are saddened to announce that Paddy Hopkirk recently passed away in Stoke Mandeville Hospital after a short illness.

Paddy was 89, and a strong supporter of our High Wycombe Group of Advanced Motorists. He was a regular attendee at our AGMs and other functions.

Paddy had an extremely charming personality and could put people of all generations at ease. Here he is in 2019 at a Presentation Evening chatting to Emma Lipinski, who had recently gained a F1RST.

Paddy was extremely keen on road safety, and especially for young people to achieve Advanced Motoring passes. Here he is photographed (accompanied by our then Chair, Keith Chanter) in 2019 congratulating three F1RST Passes from our Group.
