Once you have passed your test you are safe to drive on the roads unaccompanied. But you must remember that you are an inexperienced driver.
Statistics show that new drivers are around 10 times more likely to be involved in a crash, and regrettably, two drivers under the age of 25 die every day in crashes in the UK.
Roughly 20% of new drivers will be involved in an accident during their first year behind the wheel – that''s why insurance premiums are so high.
What is Pass Plus?
Pass Plus is a scheme designed by the Driving Standards Agency, with the help of the motor insurance and driving instruction industries.
The scheme helps new drivers gain valuable experience to help develop existing skills, learn new skills and techniques, improve anticipation and awareness, learn how to reduce the risk of crashes and maintain a courteous and considerate attitude on the road. Some Local Council Authorities run a scheme where they will give you £75,00 to reduce the cost of the Pass Plus course. (Phone us for more information on the Local Council discounts.)
The Pass Plus course overview
Pass Plus pupils can display green ''P plates'' on their vehicle (Optional), and have a series of six modules of at least one hour each. These cover:
- introduction and town driving
- all-weather driving
- out of town driving and rural roads
- night driving
- dual carriageways
- motorway driving
While you will have covered these topics during your driving lessons the Pass Plus course emphasises a positive approach to driving. The focus is on attitude and skills and gives a different perspective on these topics and will enhance your abilities.
Pass Plus results
As an indication of the effectiveness of the scheme, recent survey carried out for the Driving Standards Agency showed that 93% of people who had taken Pass Plus felt more confident on the road, and 80% considered that their driving skills had improved as a result of taking the course.
