Types of membership
Full membership of Sussex Advanced Drivers is available to anyone who has passed the RoSPA advanced test for cars within the past three years and is a current member of RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders (RoADAR).
Associate membership is open to any driver who holds a current driving licence and is joining in order to train towards the RoSPA advanced driving test.
Preparing for the advanced test involves a significant commitment since the test standards, which are based on the police system of driving, are high.
On receipt of your application to join we endeavour to match you with a tutor within reasonable travelling distance of your home address. You will have paid the membership fee (currently £18) and the joining fee (£60) of which £50 will be refunded if you pass the advanced driving test within 6 months. The 6 months period is counted from the day you start training with your tutor to the date when you apply for the Advanced Driving Test.
The test will be conducted by a RoSPA examiner and on passing you will become a RoADAR member for the first year. Subsequent RoSPA RoADAR membership fees include the test fee for the required 3-yearly retest to refresh your skills.
This is open to existing members of Sussex Advanced Drivers who have previously passed the RoSPA advanced driving test and have not passed a re-test within the immediate three-year period, but wish to maintain an interest in advanced driving and the group’s activities.
It is also open to interested members of the public.
