What is Pass Plus?
Pass Plus is a training course specifically aimed at new drivers, designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Pass Plus will build upon your existing skills and knowledge, it will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, and can help you to become more confident on the roads 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
Why do it?
Safety: New drivers’ lack of experience makes them around 5 times more at risk of being involved in an incident in their first year of driving. PassPlus greatly accellerates the gaining of that experience, especialy in areas which may not have been covered in a typical L-Driving course.
Cheaper Insurance: This was a major incentive to take the course, sadly the savings are now often small or no longer offered by some insurance companies.
Cost: I charge £240 for a 6 hour practical course (the minimum duration allowed for certification).
