The six Pass Plus modules are:
- Town driving
- All weather driving
- Out of town driving
- Night driving
- Driving on dual carriageways
- Driving on motorways
Due to a lack of driving experience, the first two years after you pass your test are when you're most likely to have an accident. Pass Plus was introduced to help make these first two years safer for everyone. The course is continually assessed, so there's no test to take at the end. You receive a certificate if you reach the required standard in each of the six modules covered.
A number of insurance companies offer a discount (usually equivalent to one year's no claims bonus) to drivers who have successfully completed a Pass Plus Course within one year of passing their practical driving test.
For more details see the Pass Plus website.
Perhaps you feel you don't need the experience a full Pass Plus course would give you, but you could do with further tuition in one or two of the subjects covered. In particular, since motorways are no go areas for learners, you could benefit from a motorway lesson. Motorways have a number of rules which don't apply on other roads, even fast dual carriageways. By taking a motorway lesson you'll be equipped with the extra knowledge and experience you need to feel much more confident when you first venture out on to Britain's motorway network.
If you passed your test some time ago but haven't driven for a while the chances are that you'll benefit from practicing in the controlled environment of a dual controlled car with a driving instructor beside you. Refresher lessons can help you regain the confidence you need to be a happy and competent driver on today's busy roads. Refresher lessons are also suitable for those who need to retake their test after a ban.
