Plus Pass

Pass Plus Logo The government, driving standards agency and insurers, backs pass plus.
It is designed to make newly qualified drivers become better drivers and gives you a number of other benefits,
such as cheaper insurance. The course consists of 6 specially designed training sessions to follow on from a successful practical test. Driving in town

You can take the pass plus up to a year after passing your practical driving test.
There is no further test to take, when your driving instructor is satisfied with your performance, you will receive a certificate from the Driving Standards Agency. Motor insurers (currently representing 63% of the UK private car market) that support the scheme will give you a one years no claims bonus for comprehensive, third party fire and theft, and third party policies as soon as you insure your own car.

This can be deferred for up to two years, if you currently drive under someone else’s policy, so long as you have not made any claims.A pass plus course through Wheelers Driving School will cost from £260.00 with 8 hours tuition split into either 2×4 hrs or 4×2 hrs sessions ect, ect
