What are the benefits of a Pass Plus course?

 

Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes at least 6 hours and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely.

It can be taken at any time although it should be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.

You’ll need a Pass Plus registered approved driving instructor (ADI) to teach you.

 

Can I get a discount on my insurance if I do Pass Plus

Once you’ve completed Pass Plus you may be able to get a car insurance discount. You’ll need your Pass Plus certificate.

Check with insurers that you can still get a discount if you passed your practical driving test more than a year ago.

The amount of discount depends on the insurance company. Not all insurers offer Pass Plus discounts.

You might be able to put the discount on hold for up to 2 years if you don’t have a car at the moment – check with the insurance company first.

 

How Pass Plus works

Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules, covering driving:

  • in town
  • in all weathers
  • on rural roads
  • at night
  • on dual carriageways
  • on motorways

All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You’ll normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving.

You won’t take a test but you’ll be assessed throughout the course. To pass you’ll have to reach the required standard in all modules.

 

Local councils offering discounts

Some local councils can offer discounts off the full Pass Plus training costs

Contact your borough, town, city or county council if they are listed to see if they can help you with the cost of your training.

You must live in the council’s area to be eligible for the discount.
