You've passed your test. Now you are ready for Pass Plus, the intensive training course that will help you become a better driver and get a discount on your insurance. So besides improving your driving skills, it could help you save money.
Who can take part?
You can take Pass Plus within the first year of passing the practical driving test
When you get your full driving licence, you can book for a one day course of 6 specially designed training sessions.
These cover driving
Out of town
in all weathers
on dual carriageways
There is no further test to take. When your instructor is satisfied with your performance you receive a certificate from the Driving Standards Agency (DSA). This certificate will earn you a substantial discount on your insurance premium from one of the companies in the scheme
Why more training?
As a new driver, you are more likely to have an accident in the first year than at any other time in your motoring career. Lack of experience means that you can be as much as TWO SECONDS slower than a more practised motorist .
Young new drivers are especially vulnerable. They hold only 10% of licences, but they are involved in 20% of road accidents in which someone is injured.
Pass Plus gives you valuable extra experience and positive driving skills that would otherwise take a long time to acquire. You should be a safer and better driver.
How can I find out more?
Your Pass Plus instructor has a list of participating insurers & brokers. You should contact the insurers to find which is the best offer for your circumstances.
Most of the major insurance companies - but not all - support the scheme.
