Pass Plus is designed to help you become a better driver and is especially useful for new drivers. You can also get intensive training to help you become a safer drive before you pass your test.
Pass Plus is a training course for newly qualified drivers. It was introduced by the Government in 1999.
Pass Plus is designed to teach new drivers additional skills and safer driving. It takes between six and nine hours and costs £160.
At the end of the course, you’ll be able to apply for a Driver and Vehicle Standard Agency (DVSA) certificate, which you’ll need if you want to apply for a discount on your car insurance. But don’t worry, we can deal with all of this for you so you don’t have to!
