A training course specifically aimed at new drivers, the Pass Plus driving test aims to build upon your newly acquired driving skills and knowledge. Due to lack of driving experience statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in their first two years of driving.
What is Pass Plus?
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and with the help of the driving instruction industry and insurers designed the training course mainly for new drivers, although anyone who holds a full UK drivers licence is eligible to take part in the scheme. It helps build your current skills and knowledge, assist you in becoming a more confident driver and help you anticipate all kinds of hazards.
Pass Plus is made up of six practical modules which include:
- Driving in town
- Driving in all weathers
- Driving on rural roads
- Driving at night
- Driving on dual carriageways
- Driving on motorways
You will be continually assessed throughout the course, there is no test but a satisfactory standard is required in completing all the modules to achieve your Pass Plus.
How much does Pass Plus cost?
Cost is varied depending on your location, the instructor or driving school you choose. There is a minimum of six hours for the course with a possibility of additional sessions required to complete successfully, at additional cost.
Some Insurance companies taking part in the scheme offer discounts and some you may find the amount you save could be more than you paid for the course.
