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.

I Passed my driving test with Will a few weeks ago at Guildford test center. I wanted to do the Pass Plus scheme so Darren told me to get a weeks experience in my own car then we would start the following week. It was good to meet up with Darren after not having him next to me for a week. We done the motoway driving first, it was different but fine as Will helped me. We went on the M25 big motorway. Darren asked me if I wanted to do the Pass Plus scheme in my own car? I jumped at the chance to drive around in my car. It was a bit different!! Darren told me about quotezone and I filled in the form bellow and got my insurance £193.93 cheaper then what I was paying. THANKS AGAIN. If you are looking to do the pass plus scheme call GDI and ask for Darren.


Mark with his new car after doing the Pass Plus Scheme



Darren didn’t teach me to learn to drive. I passed my test with someone else about 1 year ago BUT I wish he did. I started doing the Pass Plus Scheme with Darren and he kept asking a lot of questions with my driving ie: How did I roll the car? Darren got me to stop and we had a big chat. The knowledge Darren has is unreal. He pointed out so many things to help me. After the 1st pass plus session I went away thinking “how did I get though my driving test when Darren had picked up on lots of things”. Over the coure of the pass plus scheme Darren helped me understand driving better. He told me I was a good driver, it was just his standards are so high. After doing the pass plus scheme I booked some lessons with Darren so I could become the best driver I could. Anyone reading this Call Darren he is so good.


Heidi from Guildford after doing the Pass Plus Scheme



I done the Pass Plus Scheme with Darren for two reasons, firstly to lower my car insurance as it was sky high, and secondly, most of my firends were telling me how good Darren was. I have only just moved to Guildford so Darren didn’t train me to drive. I finished my Pass Plus within the 6 hours. Darren helped me a lot. He is a very good driving instructor. He knows so much more than my other driving instructor. He has helped me become a safe driver now. I feel so much better about driving because now I fully understand how to drive safely. Darren you deserve every bit of you reputation and I can recommend him to anyone that wants to do the Pass Plus scheme. Oh my car insurance went down 32% – Thanks Again Darren
