Pass Plus – after the Driving Test
Having passed your Driving Test you can now drive by yourself, which is an exciting time as driving gives you freedom and independence. However, it is also very expensive as insurance premiums for new drivers can often far exceed the cost of a car for a very good reason. Statistics show that new drivers of any age 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, mainly due to lack of experience, but sometimes due to a wrong attitude towards driving. Insurance premiums reflect the increased risk. However you can now sign up with IDT Driving School for a Pass Plus Course, which is a training scheme for new drivers designed to develop your skills and knowledge to help you become a safer driver. There is no Test at the end and Pass Plus will usually entitle you to a discount off your car insurance.
THE PASS PLUS COURSE which is designed by the Driving Standards Agency aims to develop a positive approach to driving through two key factors – your attitude and your skills.
The course is organised into 6 modules:
- Introduction and town driving
- All weather driving
- Out of town driving and rural roads
- Night driving
- Dual Carriageways
- Motorways Check out this video before your lesson
You have to complete all modules and undertake at least 6 hours of training. The time spent on each module will vary according to individual needs. To gain your certificate your driving needs to demonstrate that you have ‘achieved‘ or ‘exceeded‘ the required skills and knowledge in each module.
