Pass Plus

Statistics have shown that the risk of having an accident is at its highest during the initial years of driving after passing the practical test. This is why the Government launched the Pass Plus programme. Supported by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), as well as some leading motor insurance companies, it was created to help new drivers gain more experience and become better equipped for the demands of modern roads and driving.

The Pass Plus course is a six-hour module and must be taken no more than 12 months after passing your practical test for the insurance benefits to apply. The course itself includes motorway, bad weather, city and rural driving. After completion you will be able to obtain a discount from many insurance companies, subject to your personal circumstances.

The course is popular due to the saving on insurance often being far greater than the cost of the course. If you are taking driving lessons with us talk to your instructor about adding Pass Plus to the end of your course, or if you have recently passed and would like to organise Pass Plus instruction then please get in touch.


Maybe it’s been some time since you’ve passed your test and you feel your road safety and highway code knowledge may be lacking? Do you want to be a better, safer, more environmentally friendly driver? It’s reasons like these that are leading many people like yourself to undertake some ‘Refresher’ driver training; anything from a single driving lesson to a weekly course until you have achieved what you set out to do. Our highly qualified instructors are well versed in the pitfalls of modern driving and new eco-safe driving techniques that will cut your fuel costs and keep you safer on the road. We would all like to think that we are excellent good drivers, but who among us can honestly say they couldn’t improve?
