Pass Plus

PASS PLUS is an enhanced training scheme for new drivers. It's much more than just a few extra lessons.

Pass Plus was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.

Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test, due to lack of driving experience.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.

This specially designed course by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry, helps you: 

gain valuable driving experience safely

build on your existing skills and knowledge

reduce your risk of being in a road crash

save money on car insurance premiums

boost your confidence

give peace of mind to your loved ones

get valuable Motorway experience (which you can't do as a learner!)

 

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.

Don’t worry if you haven’t got a car at the moment, you may be able to defer a discount on your car insurance 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 will be eligible for the discounts on offer from your insurance company before you take the course.

Around the Bend only uses DSA registered Pass Plus instructors to deliver your advanced training.
