Pass Plus

Continued practical training for new drivers

Pass Plus is a practical training course to improve driver skills increase driver safety. It can be taken at any time although it is most useful to new drivers in the first year after passing their test.


Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules covering driving:

  • in town
  • in all weathers
  • on rural roads
  • at night
  • on dual carriageways
  • on motorways

All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You will normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving. You won’t take a test but you will be assessed throughout the course. To pass you will have to reach the required standard in all modules. Pass Plus fees depend on where you live, the instructor or driving school, and how long your training takes.

Pass Plus training can only be provided by a Pass Plus registered Approved Driving Instructor (ADI). You can check to see if an instructor is Pass Plus approved by contacting the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (you will need the ADI's name and ADI number):
