Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a training scheme for new drivers. Its aim is to improve your driving skills and make you a safer driver. It can also lead to insurance discounts.

The scheme has been designed by the Driving Standards Agency, now part of the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), and with the help of the motor insurance and driving instruction industries, to develop your skills and knowledge in areas where you may have limited experience.

As an indicator of its effectiveness, a previous survey of L test candidates carried out by ORC International showed that of those who had taken Pass Pluss:

  • 93% felt more confident on the road

  • 89% considered that their driving skills had improved

as a result of taking the course.

Pass Plus will benefit you by:

  • enabling you to gain quality driving experience safely

  • helping you become a more skilful driver

  • teaching you how to develop a Positive Driving style which is both enjoyable and safe

  • reducing your risk of being involved in a road crash

  • saving you money on your car insurance premiums.

Pass Plus consists of a minimum of six hours’ training and the emphasis is on developing your practical driving skills.

There is no test at the end. Instead you’ll be assessed throughout; you must cover all modules to complete the training.
