show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years of passing their test than at any
other time in their driving career. In the first year of driving, one driver in five is involved in an accident.
This is mainly down to a lack of driving experience, and this is where Pass Plus comes in!
What is Pass Plus?
Pass Plus is a training course specifically aimed at new drivers, designed by the
Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. Pass Plus will build
upon your existing skills and knowledge, it will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of
hazards, and can help you to become more confident on the roads.
Pass Plus is made up of six practical modules
driving in town
driving in all weathers
driving on rural roads
driving at night
driving on dual carriageways
driving on motorways
Anyone who holds a full UK licence is
eligible to take part in the scheme.
You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed.
You must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard.
When you have successfully completed the course, you are advised to check available discounts
offered by the insurance companies taking part in the scheme. The amount you save will depend on the company
you choose, you may even save more than you paid for the course.
