The Pass Plus scheme is aimed at new drivers to help them become better drivers.
About Pass Plus
Pass Plus was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) 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 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 take the Pass Plus training?
You can take a Pass Plus course at any time, but 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 town
- in all weathers
- on rural roads
- at night
- on dual carriageways
- on motorways
The cost of a Pass Plus course
Your Pass Plus course fees will vary depending on how long your training takes. The course takes at least six hours.
All local authorities in Wales, and some local authorities in England and Scotland, can offer you help with Pass Plus course fees.
How you’ll be instructed
Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide
At the start of your course, your instructor will give you a copy of the ‘Pass PlusPupil’s Guide’. This contains detailed information about all aspects of Pass Plus.
Pass Plus training will take at least six hours, though it can take longer if your instructor thinks it’s necessary.
The training sessions
Pass Plus is a practical course and all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions and 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. Generally at least five and a half out of six hours should be spent in the car.
You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.
Your instructor will complete a training report form that you’ll sign and date when you reach the required standard in each module. To pass the course you’ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all the course modules. You’ll be given a progress record to help you to keep track of your progress throughout the course.
At the end of your training
On successfully completing your training you’ll be sent your Pass Plus certificate to claim your discount on your car insurance policy.
You should also consider working towards your Advanced Driving Test. Passing this test would take your driving skills to a higher level, and provide you with further financial benefits.
