Pass Plus consists of six practical modules which cover driving in town, in all weathers, on rural roads, at night, on dual carriageways and on motorways. You can take it at any time within the first 12 month of passing your test.
There is no test at the end of your Pass Plus course – your driving will be continually assessed and you must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard: achieved – successfully reached the standard required for each of the competencies exceeded – exceeded the required standard for each of the competencies
In exceptional circumstances, if a module can’t be done on the road it will be covered in a theory session. The highest level you can reach is ‘achieved’ as you’ve not been able to demonstrate the relevant practical skills.
Completion of the course can reduce your insurance premiums, sometimes even more than you paid for the course – but check with your insurer for their specific discounts. The Pass Plus course takes a minimum of 6 hours to complete and don’t worry if you haven’t got a car at the moment, you may be able to defer the discount for up to two years. Again, check with your insurance company.
If you passed your test more than a year ago you should check that you’ll be eligible for the discounts on offer from your insurance company before you take the course. Pass Plus courses are charged at £35 per hour.
