It is a great feeling when you pass your driving test. After all the hard work (and expense) of learning to drive and preparing for the test you are suddenly free to drive on your own and go wherever you want, whenever you want.
As an Instructor I get great satisfaction from getting people through their tests but this is always tempered by a slight feeling of concern because although I do my best to ensure that the people I teach are really good drivers, I know that the statistics show how vulnerable they are in their first couple of years of driving.
Two drivers under 25 die on the roads every day
Two people under the age of 25 years of age die on the roads every day in the UK, and in their first year of driving one in five new drivers are involved in an accident.
It isn’t the drivers’ youth that is the problem –
Pass Plus is designed to enable you to develop your driving experience with the guidance of a Professional Driving Instructor and therefore reduce the risk that you will be involved in an accident.
“Some Motor Insurance companies offer reductions on your insurance premium if you have taken a Pass Plus advanced driving course”

How does Pass Plus work?
The Pass Plus course involves a minimum of six hours of driving tuition covering all aspects of driving in six modules:
1. Urban Roads
2. Rural Roads
3. Dual Carriageways
There is no test involved in Pass Plus. You just cover the six modules with me and I assess your driving as we go through them. Provided you achieve the required standard, I send my assessment to the Driving Standards Agency who then send you a Pass Plus certificate.
