More Information On Pass Plus
The Pass Plus Scheme involves 6 hours of training after the practical driving test is passed, which includes motorway and night driving and will also give the newly qualified driver lots of driving experience in different conditions and roads.
This driving course can be taken with any registered driving instructor within one year of passing your driving test. The newly qualified driver once successful will be entitled to a discount of between 20% and 45% off their car insurance with many insurance companies.
