Pass Plus Driving Course
Pass Plus Driving Course from Sandwell Automatic Driving School
What is A Pass Plus Driving Course?
Pass Plus is a driver training course for newly qualified drivers usually taken within the first year after passing the driving test.
The Pass Plus Driving Course was designed by a collaboration between:
- The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, DVSA, (at the time it was the Driving Standards Agency, DSA)
- Insurance Companies
- Driving Instructors
Statistically new drivers have a high crash risk, the Pass Plus Driving Course was introduced to try to reduce that risk.
The course is designed to give newly qualified drivers extra skill or experience in situations that they may not have covered in depth whilst preparing for their driving test.
Pass Plus Course Structure
Pass Plus is a driving course consisting of 6 modules, to be completed over a minimum of 6 hours.
The Pass Plus driving course can be structured as 2 or 3 Hour driver training sessions, or we can organise a full day of training and complete the whole Pass Plus course in one day.
Pass Plus does not involve a driving test, you are assessed by your Sandwell Automatic Driving School Driving Instructor during the driver training sessions, and each module is marked as either ‘achieved the standard’ or ‘exceeded the standard’.
You do not fail any module, if necessary, extra training would bring the standard up to the required level, but it is extremely rare for us to have to recommend extra training

Pass Plus Insurance Discount
In return for completing the Pass Plus Driving Course some Insurance Companies will give a discount.
The discount can vary, and it is possible that you might find an insurance company that is cheaper even without completing Pass Plus.
The biggest value to be gained from completing a Pass Plus course is the skill, ability and confidence gained, which should also mean an increase in safety
