How to get on the F1RST Register
F1RST membership is attained by taking the advanced test for car, motorcycle or commercial vehicle and achieving a score of 1 in every* category.
Existing IAM members can take a Member's Assessment in order to try and achieve the all 1s score*.
Existing members who previously passed the test with the qualifying score within the last two years can be added to the Register retrospectively.
The F1RST Register provides a means for IAM members to improve their road skills by retaking an assessment and working on the areas where a score of less than 1 was achieved.
* Examiners have the discretion to recommend a candidate even if they score a '2' in no more than three categories ( Note: Legality and Slow Manouevring must score a '1')
There has been some inconsistency with regard to the scoring or inclusion of a commentary drive in an advanced test of F1RST standard. Here is official clarification.
To achieve a F1RST in the advanced test the drive MUST include a commentary drive that scores 1 or 2 (and meets the overall scoring rules for a F1RST).
A commentary drive although not mandatory in an advanced test must be included in the test to acheive a F1RST.
If a commentary is NOT given during a test or if the commentary scores a 3,4 or 5 then a F1RST cannot be achieved.
