Pass plus

Well, you’ve passed your driving test and can’t wait to get your first car. You want the kind of independence that only comes with having your own set of wheels. But the cost of insurance is sky high. So how do you get what you want, and pay a lower premium? The answer is Pass Plus – backed by insurance companies, Central Government and the Driving Standards Agency. Completing pass-plus entitles you to significant insurance discounts from market leading insurance companies. Before agreeing insurance simply ask how much discount you get for completing pass plus.

The Pass Plus scheme is designed to make you a better driver and so help you avoid being part of a gruesome statistic. It involves more lessons in the form of six specially designed driver training modules which cover driving in town, out of town, in all weathers, at night, on dual carriageways and on motorways – and there is no test to take at the end of it. The modules covered are:

In town

Passed your test but nervous of rush hour traffic? Learn how to cope with town driving by taking expert advice.

In all weather

The first flurry of snow or the first blanket of fog can get you into a real fix. Learn how to deal with the perils of winter driving.

Out of town

Country roads can hide their own kinds of hazards. Are you ready to mix it with wildlife and farm vehicles?

At night

Learn how to read the road in the dark and at night. There are some useful tips on how to deal with the roads from dusk onward.

Dual carriageways

You need eyes in the back of your head! Don’t race, but don’t be a slow coach or you will incur the wrath of other drivers.


Greater demands are placed on the driver’s skills, observation, anticipation, planning and concentration.
