Pass Plus driving training discount
However, not every area applies for this…
If you live in selected parts of the UK then you could be eligable for help towards paying the cost of Pass Plus driving lessons.
It is thought the discount could be around £75 – sounds great!
According to the Direct Gov website ”Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes at least 6 hours and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely. It can be taken at any time although it should be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.”
Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules, covering driving:
- in town
- in all weathers
- on rural roads
- at night
- on dual carriageways
- on motorways
All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You’ll normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving.
You won’t take a test but you’ll be assessed throughout the course. To pass you’ll have to reach the required standard in all modules.
Doing a Pass Plus course can see you car insurance reduced massively.

I love the idea of the Pass Plus course and if it helps to get safer drivers on our roads while lowering the cost of car insurance then I am all for this!
