You’ve passed your driving test - now you can drive on your own at last. But it doesn’t stop there; this is just the end of the beginning…
Getting your own car will give you the independence you need. For a new driver, the cost of insurance can be sky high.
And the reason for this?
Statistics 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.
Age doesn’t matter – it’s basically down to a lack of driving experience.
That’s where PASS PLUS comes in!
When you successfully complete PASS PLUS you will usually qualify for a substantial discount on your motor insurance policy. The saving could more than cover the cost of training!
The Pass Plus Syllabus
The course lasts 6 hours (usually 2 X 3 hour sessions) and covers the Pass Plus Modules listed below. It is your Instructor's job to ensure that you reach the required standard. At the end you will be awarded the Pass Plus Certificate, which can earn you huge discounts from the participating Insurance Companies. The saving could more than cover the cost of training!
Driving on Motorways
Motorways are like no other roads: learn how to drive on them safely and correctly under expert supervision.
Driving in town can be daunting: rush hour traffic, complicated junctions and traffic systems... learn the skills to deal with all these and more.
Rain, fog, bright sunshine, snow and ice: find out how to drive safely in all the different weather conditions you'll face on the road.
Driving out of town
Country roads can harbour all kinds of hazards, from sharp bends and potholes to farm vehicles and animals in the road.
Dealing with dazzle, judging distance and speed, using your lights correctly - these are just some of the areas covered.
Driving on dual carriageways
To drive safely on fast, multi-lane roads you'll need all your skills of observation, concentration, anticipation and lane discipline.
Under the rules of the Pass Plus Scheme, you must take this course within 1 year of passing your Driving Test. If not, you may find that the participating Insurers will withdraw their incentive discount.
