The Pass Plus scheme is an established training course aimed at new drivers. There is no test, but there is a certificate which can save you money on your car insurance. The six structured modules are designed to give you confidence and improved awareness to cope with a wide variety of conditions that you will not necessarily experience when you pass your driving test.
The training will take a minimum of six hours, though we will move at your pace so you are able to make steady progress, with regular feedback and updates along the way.
The Pass Plus modules
Pass Plus is a hand-on course designed to give you practical, driving experience for each session. However, local conditions and time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. It consists of six modules which represent different conditions that you need to become familiar when driving:
- in town
- in all weathers
- on rural roads
- at night
- on dual carriageways
- on motorways
When you start the course you will receive a copy of the ‘Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide’. This contains detailed information about all aspects of the course.
You will receive a training report form for you to 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.
You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.
Pass Plus is subsidised by the local authority so please give us a call and we will be happy to discuss the current costs.
As well as increased confidence and improved experience in how to cope with a variety of difficult driving conditions, the Pass Plus certificate can also provide you with more cash in your pocket as you may be eligible for money off your motor insurance.
