Pass Plus is a practical training course for people that have passed their normal practical driving test. It consists of a minimum 6 hours training and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely. Also you are entitled to cheaper car insurance with certain insurers.
It can be taken at any time, but it’s best to be taken within the first year after passing your test.
Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules, covering driving:
- in town
- in all weathers
- on rural roads
- at night
- on dual carriageways
- on motorways
All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You’ll normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving.
You won’t take a test but you’ll be assessed throughout the course. To pass you’ll have to reach the required standard in all modules.
You’ll be sent a Pass Plus certificate after you’ve successfully finished your training. You’ll need this when applying for a car insurance discount.
