What is Pass Plus?
Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes a minimum of 6 hours to complete and is designed for drivers to improve their skills.

Pass Plus consists of 6 modules, each of them designed to give the driver experience driving:
In town/city centre
In all weathers
On rural roads
On dual carriageways
All modules should be covered by practical sessions, although local conditions may mean that some are theory based - you won't be able to practice driving in the snow in the middle of July!
