Pass Plus is a practical course of driver training that can be completed at any time. It’s best taken by new drivers shortly after passing their test and should take around six hours. Those wishing to take Pass Plus training will need to find an approved driving instructor who has been registered for Pass Plus.
The benefits of Pass Plus
Taking Pass Plus training provides new drivers with a range of benefits, including:
- Improving your confidence as a new driver
- Possibility of discounted car insurance after successfully completing the course
- Learning to drive in a variety of different situations and conditions
- Reducing your risk of being involved in a road traffic accident
Car insurance discounts are often offered to new drivers who have successfully completed Pass Plus training, as they are considered less likely to be involved in an accident. Taking Pass Plus training is also a good idea if you are feeling nervous about driving in adverse weather conditions or simply want to improve your driving skills. Whilst Pass Plus doesn’t eliminate your risk of being involved in a road traffic accident, it can help you to be a safer driver.
What does Pass Plus training involve?
Pass Plus training has six modules and usually takes at least six hours to complete successfully. The modules covered include driving in a wide variety of different settings and conditions, including:
- In all weathers
- In town
- At night
- On rural roads
- On motorways
- On dual carriageways
The sessions are generally practical ones and you will be assessed on an ongoing basis. Provided drivers reach the standards required for each module, they will receive a Pass Plus certificate upon completion of training.
