The Pass Plus Scheme
Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.
Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident within the first two years after passing their test than at any other time during their driving career, this is due to lack of driving experience: it’s not because of your age. The main factor is simply a lack of experience and the fact that as a newly qualified driver you are more vulnerable than you may realize.
Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver. You can take a Pass Plus course at any time, but it’s mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test. Once you have successfully completed the course you will usually qualify for a motor insurance discount and in some cases you may find that this will often outweigh the cost of the scheme.

Pass Plus Pupil''s Guide
At the start of your course, you will receive a copy of the ''Pass Plus Pupil''s Guide''. This contains detailed information about all aspects of Pass Plus.
Pass Plus training will take a minimum of six hours to complete, though it can take longer if it is necessary.
The Training Sessions
Pass Plus is a practical course and all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions and time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. Generally at least five and a half out of six hours should be spent in the car. You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.
Your instructor will complete a training report form that you’ll sign and date when you reach the required standard in each module. To pass the course you''ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all the modules. You’ll be given a progress record to help you keep track of your progress throughout the course.
At the End of Your Training
On successfully completing your training you''ll be sent your Pass Plus certificate to claim your discount on your motor insurance policy. The Pass Plus certificate may be kept on hold for two years; the certificate can only be presented for the holder’s first discount.
