Any driver/rider with a licence to drive/ride in Great Britain can join us as an Associate member. You will need the use of a fully taxed, road worthy and insured vehicle/motorcycle with an MOT, if applicable.
Advanced driving and riding is a matter of you sharpening and refining your skills in accordance with the Roadcraft Handbooks.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
You will need to become an Associate member of the Group for insurance purposes. The initial joining fee is £65, which includes your annual subscription to the Group and as many guidance sessions as you require. Subsequent annual membership is
£15 per year.
Should you choose to take your test you need to apply on line directly to RoADAR. There are different levels of fees. Please see the main RoADAR page for further details.
RoSPA / RoADAR MEMBERSHIP
Once you have passed your advanced driving or riding test you will become a member of RoADAR and there will be subsequent annual membership fees to pay, if you wish to retain your membership. If you choose to do this you will be invited to retake your test every 3 years. The cost of this is included in your membership. There is no extra charge for your retest.
Please note that membership of RoADAR is completely separate to membership of the Foresters Group.
You will have your own personal satisfaction, knowing that you are amongst a select few in the country who has achieved a high level of driving/riding skills. You will be a safer and more competent driver/rider. Some insurance companies also give discount if they know you have undertaken and passed an advanced driving/riding test with RoSPA.
Another benefit is that once you have passed to either Silver or Gold standard you are invited to stay with the Group and train to be a Group Tutor so that you can pass on your newly acquired skills to others. We offer a comprehensive in house training programme working within your own capabilities and time.
