Congratulations to Ian Cole who had a very successful drive during his advanced test on 9th January. Ian’s examiner said “he clearly is a good, experienced driver, and the links between observation, anticipation and planning were obvious and well demonstrated – a really cracking drive.” Well done Ian from all of us at GAM – a terrific start to what we hope will be another great year of test successes.
Last night GAM hosted a very successful celebration of another great year where over 40 people met to congratulate new GAM members on their IAM test achievements in 2019. GAM membership certificates were awarded to those who passed their test during last year, and they were cheered on by a selection of local IAM examiners, members of the GAM committee, several Observers from the group, and special guest Stuart Haythorn, IAM Area Manager.
GAM had 19 F1rst and 29 test passes in 2019 – another record year celebrated in fine style at the Drummond Arms in Albury. And to cap it all, National Observer John Holcroft was awarded the David McCarthy Award for his outstanding service to the group during the year. Well done everyone!
