Passed Your Driving Test

You’ve passed your driving test – now you can drive on your own at last. But it doesn’t stop there; this is just the end of the beginning…Now you need to get your Pass Plus Course.
Getting your own car will give you the independence you need. For a new driver, the cost of insurance can be sky high.

High Insurance Costs

Statistics now show that most new drivers are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their driving test than at any other time in their driving career. Age doesn’t really matter – it’s basically down to a lack of driving experience. That’s where the PASS PLUS comes in!

What does it cost?

Because our driving instructors are Pass Plus qualified, we can book you in for a 6 hour lesson designed to cover the 6 modules required to obtain the certificate. Once all 6 modules are completed your instructor will send off the relevant documentation and you will receive your Pass Plus certificate in the post.

About the pass plus course

The Pass Plus Course has been designed to make newly qualified drivers much better drivers. The Pass Plus was set up by the DVSA to encourage drivers who have recently passed their driving test to undergo further training with an Advanced Driving Instructor.

The Pass Plus will not only give newly qualified drivers further driving experience and enhance their skills, it will allow them to reduce the cost of their car insurance as many car insurance companies offer a substantial discount to drivers who have successfully completed the Pass Plus Course.

Now remember in some areas there are schemes which heavily support the Pass Plus course certificate as a genuine advantage to there town and so subsidise in some cases up to £100.00 of the cost! Check with your local council to see if you qualify.

When you contact an insurance company, you need to check that a PASS PLUS COURSE discount is available to you. For more information on Pass Plus please check the Direct Gov website which will give you to the relevant information.

You do not pass the Pass Plus by taking a final exam/test. Your driving instructor monitors and assesses your performance as you go through and complete the six modules.

Each Pass Plus Course must consist of at least six hours training. During the course your driving instructor will record your progress on a training report form. When the instructor is satisfied you have successfully completed the course you will be issued with a Certificate of Completion.

Only driving instructors who are registered as Pass Plus Instructors can give the course.

Stewart Evans

Being a complete novice behind the wheel I found the prospect of my first driving lesson daunting to say the least, but Allen soon allayed all my fears during my initial lesson and thereafter my confidence grew with each lesson. I can without hesitation highly recommend Allen Brown as the one to trust when trying to attain your driving licence.
