A QUARTER of newly qualified drivers will have an accident in the
first 6 months driving! This is due to a lack of experience and
awareness. This danger is increased dramatically on Motorways where new
drivers have no experience or training.

designed the Pass Plus program for newly qualified drivers. It's much more than just a few extra lessons. It is
a comprehensive approach to REAL LIFE driving and STAYING SAFE on
motorways. Bear in mind that it will take a minimum of six hours, all of which need to be taken after passing your test. If more sessions are needed for you to successfully complete the course, this may add to the cost. The benefits to you include -
Gain valuable driving experience safely.
You will be taught how to deal with a wide range of road and traffic situations, many of which you may not have faced before.

PASS PLUS consists of six practical modules which cover driving in town, in all weathers, on rural roads, at night, on dual carriageways and on motorways. You can take it at any time within the first 12 month of passing your test.
There is no test at the end of it – your driving will be continually assessed and you must successfully complete all the modules in the course to an achieved or exceeded standard:
Achieved –successfully reached the standard required for each of the competencies
Exceeded –exceeded the required standard for each of the competencies
In exceptional circumstances, if a module can't be done on the road it will be covered in a theory session. The highest level you can reach is 'achieved' as you've not been able to demonstrate the relevant practical skills.
