What is Pass Plus?
"Pass Plus" is a national scheme with training by approved driving instructors.
The scheme encourages young people who have just passed their test to undertake up to six modules of more advanced driving lessons.This includes aspects that may not be covered in the normal driving test, such as night time and motorway driving.
What's the benefit?
It's a fact that young drivers are more at risk on the roads than other drivers. By improving the driving skills and road safety awareness of new drivers, Pass Plus is designed to reduce the number of accidents involving young people.
What's more, many insurance companies offer discounts for new drivers with a Pass Plus certificate.
Discounts can vary from 30% to 50% reduction on insurance costs
Training covers up to six modules:
1. Driving in town
2. Driving in all weathers
3. Driving on rural roads
4. Driving at night
5. Driving on dual carriageways
6. Driving on motorways
There is no test at the end of the course, but drivers must reach a certain standard to be awarded a certificate.
