What does the course involve?
When you get your full driving licence, you can book for a course of 6 specially designed training sessions. These cover:
All Weather Driving
Out of Town Driving
Dual Carriageway Driving
Who can take part?
You can take it at any time within the first 12 month of passing your practical driving test.
How to complete the course?
There is no test at the end of it – your driving will be continually assessed and you must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard. When your instructor is satisfied with your performance you receive a certificate from the DSA. This certificate will earn you a substantial discount on your insurance premium from one of the companies in the scheme.
Why more training?
As a new driver, you are more likely to have an accident in the first than at any other time in your motoring career. Lack of experience means that you can be as much as TWO SECONDS slower than a more practised motorist.
Young new drivers are especially vulnerable. They hold only 10% of licences, but they are involved in 20% of road accidents in which someone is injured.
Pass Plus gives you valuable extra experience and positive driving skills that would otherwise take a long time to acquire. You should be a safer and better driver.
How much will it cost to take Pass Plus at A PASS?
Just the price of 6 one hour driving lessons.

Please consider the information carefully. It is clear that undertaking a Pass Plus course is more than likely to save you money, but it should also be particularly emphasised that this course will most certainly make you a better driver and, more importantly, a safer driver.
