Pass Plus is an advanced driver training course designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) to make newly qualified drivers become better drivers. It will give you extra driving experience and a discount on your car insurance.
The following benefits may be available (depending on status) from motor insurers supporting Pass Plus:
When you get your full driving licence, you can book for a course of 6 specially designed training sessions. These cover:
You can take it at any time within the first 12 month of passing your practical driving test.
There is no test at the end of it – your driving will be continually assessed and you must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard. When your instructor is satisfied with your performance you receive a certificate from the DSA. This certificate will earn you a substantial discount on your insurance premium from one of the companies in the scheme.
As a new driver, you are more likely to have an accident in the first 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.
The full course costs £160.

Please consider the information carefully. It is clear that undertaking a Pass Plus course is more than likely to save you money, but it should also be particularly emphasised that this course will most certainly make you a better driver and, more importantly, a safer driver.
