The Pass Plus Course has been designed to make newly qualified drivers much better drivers. The Pass Plus was set up by the DVSA to encourage drivers who have recently passed their driving test to undergo further training with an Advanced Driving Instructor.
The Pass Plus will not only give newly qualified drivers further driving experience and enhance their skills, it will allow them to reduce the cost of their car insurance as many car insurance companies offer a substantial discount to drivers who have successfully completed the Pass Plus Course.
Now remember in some areas there are schemes which heavily support the Pass Plus course certificate as a genuine advantage to there town and so subsidise in some cases up to £100.00 of the cost! Check with your local council to see if you qualify.
When you contact an insurance company, you need to check that a PASS PLUS COURSE discount is available to you. For more information on Pass Plus please check the Direct Gov website which will give you to the relevant information.
You do not pass the Pass Plus by taking a final exam/test. Your driving instructor monitors and assesses your performance as you go through and complete the six modules.
Each Pass Plus Course must consist of at least six hours training. During the course your driving instructor will record your progress on a training report form. When the instructor is satisfied you have successfully completed the course you will be issued with a Certificate of Completion.
Only driving instructors who are registered as Pass Plus Instructors can give the course.
