Pass Plus

Overview

Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes at least 6 hours and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely.

It can be taken at any time although it should be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.

You’ll need a Pass Plus registered approved driving instructor (ADI) to teach you.

 

How Pass Plus training works

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.
