Pass Plus

The Pass Plus scheme is aimed at new drivers to help them become better drivers.
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.

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.
