Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers and was designed by the Driving Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test, due to lack of driving experience. Pass Plus is not a driving test but a 6 hour course that will build on your current skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, and help you become a more confident driver. The Pass Plus course is made up of 6 modules. All of the modules must be successfully completed to the required standard. Once successfully completing your training you’ll be sent your Pass Plus certificate. Then you can claim your up to 25% discount on you car insurance policy.
You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will continually be assessed. At the start of your course, your instructor will give you a copy of the Pass Plus pupils guide. Then it will take at least 6 hours, though it can take longer if we think it’s necessary. Pass Plus is a practical course & all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions & time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. A theory session could be given if there is no motorway nearby. We will complete a training report form. To pass the Pass Plus course you’ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all 6 modules. Once passed all 6 modules your Pass Plus certificate will be sent to you.
