As a new driver you are much more vulnerable than you realise. Statistics show that during the first two years of driving you are far more likely to be involved in an accident than at any other time in your driving career.

The Facts:

  • 2 Young people under 25 die everyday in crashes in Great Britain.
  • In their first year of driving 1 in 5 drivers are involved in an accident.

It's not just young drivers that are at risk, newly qualified drivers are at a higher than average risk no matter how old they may be. Most drivers become safe by increasing their experience by driving more miles and covering a wider variety of driving situations. Driving is a life skill and while many skills can be learned by trial and error the risk on the road is so great that an error could be fatal.

WHAT IS PASS PLUS?

Pass plus is a voluntary scheme designed by the Driving Standards Agency with the help of the driver training industry and insurance companies. The pass plus course helps to build on the existing skills that you developed to pass your learner test. Your awareness, anticipation and planning skills will all be worked on to help you be better prepared for any hazards you may come across on the road. The course will also work on building up your confidence behind the wheel.

Pass plus contains 6 modules

  • INTRODUCTION AND TOWN DRIVING
  • ALL-WEATHER DRIVING
  • OUT OF TOWN DRIVING AND RURAL ROADS
  • NIGHT DRIVING
  • DUAL CARRIAGEWAYS
  • MOTORWAYS

If you hold a full driving licence then you can take the pass plus course, there are no tests to pass during the modules but you are being continually assessed. You must complete all six modules and achieve or exceed the required standard.
