What is Pass Plus

The pass plus scheme provides new drivers with the important added ingredient - Experience

It offers driving experience in many new areas and the chance to improve your skills and confidence. It is designed by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and supported by insurance companies and the driving instruction industry.


There are 6 modules including -

 
  • Motorway driving
  • Dual carriageways
  • Night driving
   

  • All weather driving
  • Town driving
  • Rural driving
 
  




What are the main aims of Pass Plus

To further develop skills to plan and deal with all hazards safely
To help boost confidence about driving in unfamiliar situations
To encourage the driver to have a considerate attitude to other road users.
To reduce the risk of being involved in an accident.




So what is involved in Pass Plus

Your driving instructor will cover the necessary information relating to each module. There is no test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed throughout.
You must successfully complete all the modules to an 'achieved' or 'exceeded' standard.
The course can be delivered in a variety of ways covering the modules in either 1,2 or 3 hour sessions

 
At the end of your pass plus course your instructor will fill in an assessment form and post this to the DSA. You will receive back a certificate of completion and this is accepted by many insurance companies who offer a discount that reflects the lower accident risk you now have.


 
Having undertaken the course students will have a far better understanding of their own limitations and expectations.You can be assured that your driving has reached a higher level giving you the confidence and freedom to enjoy your driving.
