Here at Leanne’s Learners we pride ourselves on teaching our pupils how to be safe on the roads and not just how to pass the driving test, which is why we recommend that all pupils should take The Pass Plus Training Course.
The Pass Plus Training Course is carried out by our Pass Plus registered approved driving instructors (ADI's)
The Pass Plus Training Course can be taken at anytime, although it is most useful to new drivers in the first year after passing their test, helping them to to improve their skills and drive more safely.
Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.
Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test. This is because of their lack of driving experience.
The Pass Plus Training Course builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.
The Pass Plus modules consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:
1) in town
2) in all weathers
3) on rural roads
4) at night
5) on dual carriageways
6) on motorways
The Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide is given to you at the start of your course, your instructor will give you a copy which contains detailed information about all aspects of Pass Plus.
The Duration of Pass Plus Training will take at least six hours, though it can take longer if your instructor thinks it’s necessary.
The training sessions for Pass Plus are a practical course and all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions and time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. A theory session could be given if the lessons are taken during the summer regarding night time driving. Generally at least five and a half out of six hours should be spent in the car. You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but your instructor will be continually assessing you during the modules.
A Training Report form will be completed by your instructor that you’ll sign and date when you reach the required standard in each module. To pass the course you’ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all the course modules. You’ll be given a progress record to help you to keep track of your progress throughout the course.
