Why Pass Plus?
Statistics shows that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first 2 years of driving than at any another time. Not only is this worrying for your personal safety, it also bumps up the premiums for new drivers. That’s where the Pass Plus course can help!
What exactly is it?
Pass Plus is a certificate that you take as a newly qualified driver which not only enhances your skills, but guarantees discounts on your insurance – always high for new drivers The Pass Plus course is an opportunity for the newly qualified driver to develop his or her skills and venture out in traffic conditions which may not be familiar from the “L” driving lessons. It will help you: • Gain valuable experience safely • Build on existing driving skills and knowledge • Reduce the risk of a crash • Boost confidence • Save money on car insurance
How does it work?
Pass Plus consists of 6 practical modules of one hour each. Every driving lesson will cover different subjects, for example night driving, city driving, dual carriageways, motorways, difficult terrain and weather conditions.
When can I do it?
You can take Pass Plus within the first 12 months of passing your driving test.
Do I have to take another test?

How do I get the Certificate?
