Pass Plus

Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry. 

Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test, due to lack of driving experience. Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.

Rutland County Council offers a subsidy to any young drivers resident in Rutland looking to take advantage of Pass Plus.

Who can do Pass Plus training?

You can take a Pass Plus course at any time, but it is mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test.

To join Pass Plus you need to find an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) to train you. Your ADI will help you complete the six training modules to pass the training course.

Pass Plus modules

Pass Plus consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:

  • In town
  • In all weathers
  • On rural roads
  • At night
  • On dual carriageways
  • On motorways
Find out more information about Pass Plus through the government's GOV.UK website.
