What is Pass Plus?

changing gears

Pass Plus is a driving training course aimed at new drivers who are looking to improve their driving ability and become safer drivers...

The Pass Plus course is made up of 6 modules which cover skills which aren't typically covered in your driving lessons.

The Pass Plus modules are;

-In Town Driving

-All Weather Driving

-Rural Road Driving

-At Night Driving

-Dual Carriageway Driving

-Motorway Driving

Ideally, all modules are practically based, however, due to location restrictions some modules may have to be theory-based (eg. if you are in a built-up city there may not be rural roads available).

How is the Pass Plus course marked?

The course will be at least 6 hours, and there is no formal test at the end of it.

Your instructor will assess your progress, and when she/he feels you have reached the required standard in all modules, will issue you with a pass.

Will Pass Plus reduce my insurance?

Once you have passed, you can apply for your Pass Plus certificate here; which could entitle you to a discount on your car insurance.

However, check with your insurer before presuming the Pass Plus will cut your insurance costs, as many insurers no longer offer discounts to Pass Plus Certificate holders.

You need to find an approved Pass Plus registered driving instructor (you can check if your instructor is approved by contacting the DVSA Pass Plus team at [email protected]).

How much does Pass Plus cost?

Prices vary dependent upon your location, and some local councils also offer discounts off the full price of the Pass Plus training, so it’s worth looking into that.
