What is Pass Plus?
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.
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.
Once you’ve completed Pass Plus you may be able to get a car insurance discount. You’ll need your Pass Plus certificate.
The amount of discount depends on the insurance company. Not all insurers offer Pass Plus discounts.
You might be able to put the discount on hold for up to 2 years if you don’t have a car at the moment – check with the insurance company first.
