Who is Pass Plus for?
Developed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) in conjunction with the insurance industry, Pass Plus is aimed primarily at newly qualified drivers, who statistically are more likely to be involved in an accident in the first two years after passing their practical test.
There are six modules within the Pass Plus course (completed over six hours usually within three sessions) which aim to build on the skills you have learned before taking your driving test, and build your confidence to be able to deal with a variety of road conditions, such as:
• Town driving • All-weather driving
• Rural and country roads • Night driving
• Dual carriageways • Motorway driving
We have found that many people are keen to improve their skills through the Pass Plus modules after passing their practical test; it is particularly useful if needing to plan a route that you may need to drive for a new job or perhaps visiting family and friends through dual carriageways and motorways. Depending on the time of year some people learn to drive (ie summer), they may not encounter driving at night on a variety of roads in differing weather conditions.
On completion of the Pass Plus modules you will be issued with a certificate which can count towards insurance discounts with participating companies.

“I decided to take the Pass Plus course with Forza Driver Training as my job entails quite a lot of driving to meetings and interviewing people. I found it invaluable as I picked up techniques and tips that really got me thinking and planning well ahead. You tend to think that when you pass the theory test you won’t revisit it much but before covering modules such as country roads and motorways my instructor gave me homework to do on signs and markings. We did some challenging country roads at night and I was really pushed to keep looking well ahead for hazards and felt at the end that I had made real strides towards becoming a ‘thinking’ driver. I have done numerous long journeys on motorways since with no problems. My confidence improved noticeably as a result of taking the Pass Plus and I would say that where one journey ended with me passing my practical test, I started a different one with the Pass Plus course and am a better driver as a consequence.”
