Pass Plus Lessons in Brackley Banbury Buckingham & Bicester
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.
After successfully completing the course you will receive a certificate from the Driving Standards Agency. Most insurance companies support PASS PLUS and will give you a discount of up to 30% on your insurance.
Not all driving instructors are registered to teach Pass-Plus. Mark Prewett is a Pass Plus Registered Instructor
The 6 hour course costs £198.00 You may save at least this off your car insurance (please check with your insurance company).
Pass Plus comprises six modules, each covering a different aspect of driving. These modules are:
- Town driving
- All-weather driving
- Driving out of town
- Night driving
- Driving on dual carriageways
- Driving on motorways
Some of the aspects may be covered in theory only, such as weather and night driving which require conditions that may be hard to replicate especially in the summer, or motorway driving if there is no motorway nearby. However, this is only done when a practical training session is not possible.
The scheme takes a minimum of six hours to complete. The practical assessment is more lenient than that used in the standard driving test, and adherence to many rules that would otherwise constitute a major mistake in the main practical exam (such as parking at an angle) does not apply. It is only required that one is able to drive safely and legally.
There is no examination at the end of the Pass Plus course; rather, a certificate is awarded once the instructor is satisfied with the candidate's competence.
Each module must be completed to an achieved or exceeded standard, in order to pass:
Achieved: successfully reached the driving standard required for each of the competencies.
Exceeded: exceeded the driving standard required for each of the competencies.
If a module is completed in theory, "Achieved" is the highest standard possible, as the candidate does not have an opportunity to practically demonstrate their competence.
