The Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), the road charity, BRAKE, and various insurance companies, encourage young drivers to continue with training after passing the driving test.
Pass Plus is a post–test driving course is another service offered by Bucks and Oxon Driver Training.. The aim is to reduce the risk of those young drivers being involved in a collision and becoming another statistic.
Many insurance companies will allow discount against the cost of your car insurance, following the successful completion of the Pass Plus course. The money spent on the course, when off–set against the cost of motor insurance, may pay for a substantial part of the course fees.
Pass Plus Course Modules
There are 6–hours of driving tuition involved with the Pass Plus programme, and the subjects it covers include night driving and motorways, as well as how to deal with country roads and town driving.
The great thing is there's no test at the end either!
For more details take a look at the DVSA Pass Plus page.

- Fact! New drivers are 5x more likely to be involved in a driving incident in the first 2–years of their driving career. With the first 6–months being the most vulnerable.
- Fact! The New Drivers Act means, should you obtain 6–points on your licence within the first two years, your full licence entitlement will be revoked and you will revert back to a learner driver once more. That means retaking the Theory and Practical driving tests all over again.
