What is pass plus?
Pass Plus is a DSA approved training course aimed at 17 – 25 year olds, designed to be taken after passing your L-Test. You will learn how to deal with various challenges that you may not have encountered during your pre-test lessons. Thereby helping you to be a safer, more confident driver.
Why Pass Plus?
Newly qualified drivers are much more vulnerable than they realise. Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident within the first two years after passing their driving test, than at any other time in their driving career. A quarter of those killed on the roads are under 21 years old. 95% of road traffic accidents are caused by human error, and the new driver’s comparative lack of experience often leads to these errors.
Who can take pass plus ?
Anyone with a full UK license can take Pass Plus. However, it is primarily aimed at the 17 to 25 age group, and is intended to be taken within the first year of passing their L-Test. You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed. You must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard.
