Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes at least 6 hours and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely, covering additional aspects such as motorway driving which may not have been covered in normal lessons

It can be taken at any time although it should be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.   –  Roughly speaking it equates to a years no claims bonus, but always check with your insurers first to see exactly what discount is offered.

You can find out more about Pass Plus here.

Pass-Plus does not have a final exam or test, it is a continually assessed course.

If you have passed your test and have your own vehicle we can offer the Pass Plus Course at a reduced rate, and learn in your own car. (T&C’s Apply)

You don’t have to do it all in one day – It can be split across 3 sessions if required.
If you have a friend or partner that also wishes to take the course at the same time,  reduced rates can be offered – Ask for details
