Pass Plus

What is Pass Plus?

Driving in a major city like is stressfull for the novice driver Pass Plus is a continuation of driving lessons designed for those who have passed their L test within the last year and who wish to gain further knowledge and experience, particularly in driving circumstances that may not have been covered in their normal lessons, such as:

  • Night time driving
  • Bad weather driving
  • Motorway driving
  • City centre driving
  • Country road driving

I've got my licence, surely that proves I am a good enough driver?"

Having passed your driving L test, merely proves that you have reached the governments minimum standard to be allowed to drive on the roads by yourself, it does not in itself guarantee that you are going to be either a good driver nor a safe one. Consider the following points: Pass Plus aims to make young drivers safer

  • FACT - one out of every five drivers crash at least once in their first year following their driving test.

  • FACT - one out every four passengers killed or seriously injured are travelling with a young driver who is in their first year of driving following their test!

  • FACT - Despite representing only one out of every 8 drivers in the UK, drivers in the 17-25 age group are involved in one in four of all collisions.

  • Recent statistics show that in West Lothian alone an average of 46 drivers are killed per year! More than enough to make 4 football teams! 500 more seriously injured and require hospital treatment, nearly 10 per week.

Young drivers ages 17-25 account for more than 25 pecent of road accidents The idea behind Pass Plus is to continue to educate young drivers, hopefully changing their attitudes to risk taking rather than their concepts of their own driving skills. The training is delivered on a coaching basis as there is no test at the end of the course.

The course has been designed by the DSA and is endorsed by a number of insurance companies, many of whom offer significant discounts for Pass Plus qualified drivers, equivalent to up to one year of no claims discount! Pass Plus can be completed at any time up to one year after passing your L test.

The six hours of training can be done in a one day block, two times three hour blocks, three times two hour blocks or any combination to suit you.  Contact me for availability.

How much does the course cost? 

The normal price of the Pass Plus course is 150 in West Lothian and 175 in Edinburgh. However, if you consider that an hour long motorway lesson alone is going to cost 25 then you can see that the course is good value.  This price reflects facts that a higher mileage will be covered than in normal lessons and that this is a six hour course. However residents of West Lothian should see below.

Special Offer.

Under the West Drive scheme, promoted by the Road Safety Unit of F Division, Lothian and Borders Police, a special offer is available on Pass Plus, known as the West Drive Scheme. Complete the course and fill in a couple of questionnaires, agree to fill in another questionnaire in six months time and a 55 cash-back incentive is offered, making the course price fantastic value. Compare that to the insurance savings you can make and it has to be worth while. Please note that due to financial cutbacks within the local authority, this refund is no longer available

Who Supports Pass Plus?
