The Pass Plus Scheme is a Driving Standards Agency supported scheme which aims to promote and improve road safety for newly qualified drivers (must be taken within the first year of passing the driving test).
As well as becoming a better and safer driver, some insurance companies offer discounts on premiums to drivers who hold a Pass Plus certificate. The course lasts around six hours and consists of six parts:
- Town driving
- All-weather driving
- Rural road driving
- Night driving
- Dual carriageway driving
- Motorway driving
The Pass Plus Scheme is not a test but is more evaluation by your instructor who, when satisfied that you are competent in each of the above types of driving.
The Pass Plus website can be found at http://www.passplus.org.uk/
The cost of taking the Pass Plus with me is £210
