Do I need to do a Pass Plus course?
Everyone we teach to drive will be confident in town centres, on dual carriageways and have experience of driving on a motorway before they take their driving test.
But if you didn’t learn to drive with us, you might not have had the same experience. The thought of driving on a busy motorway might make you nervous or navigating around city centres could make you feel worried. Your reverse parking skills might not be up to scratch.
If that sounds like you, our Pass Plus course is what you need!
What is Pass Plus?
Pass Plus is an advanced driving course that teaches you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with many hazards that you probably haven’t encountered before.
Taking a Pass Plus course might mean your insurance is cheaper (try Direct Line or Churchill) but the main benefit is the experience you get driving on fast country roads, city centre and on motorways.
Pass Plus will help you become a safer and more confident driver.
The six hour course is good value at £150 (£120 if you passed your driving test with us) but you could reduce the cost even more. Lincolnshire County Council sometimes subsidise the cost of this life saving advanced driver training. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01522 805 800 for details.
You don’t even need to do the complete course. The motorway module, for example, can be bought on it’s own for £60.
What you will learn
If you do the complete course you will be taught how to drive on motorways, in busy town centres, how to drive at night, on fast country lanes, in poor weather and more. . .
Build on your existing skills and knowledge
It can take years to become a skilled driver. PASS PLUS helps get you there by speeding up the learning process under expert tuition.
Reduce your risk of being in a road traffic collision
The course will help boost your awareness of all kinds of hazards and help you learn how to anticipate, plan for and deal with them safely.
Boost your confidence
If you feel nervous driving on your own, the PASS PLUS training can help you become more confident on the roads.
Give peace of mind to your loved ones
PASS PLUS consists of six practical modules which cover driving in town, in all weathers, on rural roads, at night, on dual carriageways.
The course lasts 6 hours and can either be taken in 2 sessions of 3 hours or 1 session of 6 hours with rest breaks.
You receive a free 50 page Pupil’s Guide book with the course
Course sessions are held in the mornings, afternoons and evenings, – you can take the whole course in 1 day or over 2 days or evenings. You don’t take a test at the end, instead you will be assessed and awarded a Pass Plus certificate.
