Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving and vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry and can help save you money as once completed many insurers will give a discount of up to 30% on your premium.
Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test. This is because of their lack of driving experience.
Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.
Who can do Pass Plus training
You can take a Pass Plus course at any time. However, it’s mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test.
Pass Plus modules
Pass Plus consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:
in all weathers
on rural roads
on dual carriageways
This is normally covered in 6 hours, although occasionally more training will be required to meet the standard.
There is no test at the end of the course, but you will receive a certificate certifying that you have met the required standard and many insurers will give a discount of up to 30% on your insurance premium.
