Pass Plus is a great way for new drivers to gain more experience when driving. As soon as you pass your driving test you are legally allowed to drive though most new drivers will have very little experience and will most likely come across a number of different situations that they might not be ready for or sure how to deal with them.
This is where the Pass Plus driving course comes in. It was created by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) to give new drivers vital experience in driving in a variety of different conditions, as well as dealing with an array of different situations that drivers may find themselves in.
There are many benefits of the Pass Plus course as it will teach you how to prepare for different scenarios and to deal with various hazards that might occur on the road. Gaining this extra experience and knowledge is a great way to increase your own confidence in driving. An added bonus is that a number of driving insurance companies will take Pass Plus into consideration when setting your insurance premium. You could make substantial savings on your car insurance if you have passed the Pass Plus course.
Six practical modules make up the Pass Plus course, and they are as follows ….
- Diving in Town
- All-weather driving
- Driving on rural roads
- Driving at night
- Driving on dual carriageways
- Driving on motorways
Some of the modules of the Pass Plus course might actually only be covered in theory such as the all-weather and night driving modules. The theory lessons are only done when an actual practical lesson is simply not possible to arrange.
The Pass Plus course takes a minimum of at least six hours to complete, and at the end of the course there is not a test. A certificate is awarded once the instructor is satisfied with the performance and abilities of the person taking the course.
