What is Pass Plus?Pass Plus

Pass Plus is an optional course introduced by DSVA and it is considered the best way to give additional driving experience to a qualified learner. The main aim of the course is to impart valuable knowledge to drivers who have recently passed the practical driving test, and who want to learn new skills and techniques, improve their anticipation and alertness and learn how to reduce accidents.

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

Once you have completed Pass Plus you may be able to get a car insurance discount.

How the training works?

Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours and it has 6 modules, covering driving:

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

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

You will be assessed throughout the course and to pass the you will need to reach the required standard in all modules. There is no test to take at the end.

After you have successfully finished your training, you will be sent a Pass Plus certificate. You will need this certificate when applying for a car insurance discount.
