  • on dual carriageways
  • on motorways

Why more training?

As a new driver, you are more likely to have an accident in the first than at any other time in your motoring career. Lack of experience means that you can be as much as TWO SECONDS slower than a more practised motorist .

Young new drivers are especially vulnerable. They hold only 10% of licences, but they are involved in 20% of road accidents in which someone is injured.

Pass Plus gives you valuable extra experience and positive driving skills that would otherwise take a long time to acquire. You should be a safer and better driver.

How can I find out more about PassPlus?

Your Pass Plus instructor has a list of participating insurers & brokers. You should contact the insurers to find which is the best offer for your circumstances.

Any driving instructor on the DVSA approved register can enrol to teach Pass Plus. If your own instructor cannot help, look in the telephone directory or for adverts in your local newspaper.
