After You Pass
Congratulations! You have passed your driving test! Now you can drive on your own at last. But it doesn’t stop there…..
Getting your own car will give you the independence you need.
Do you feel you could benefit from some further training to increase your skills and your confidence? Would you like some practice on the motorway with your instructor? Want to save hundreds of pounds on your car insurance?
Then Pass Plus is for you.
Pass Plus 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.
For a new driver, the cost of insurance can be sky high. There are many insurers currently taking part in PASS PLUS. The saving could more than cover the cost of training. When you contact them, you need to check that a PASS PLUS discount is available to you.
And the reason for this? Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. Age doesn’t matter – it’s basically down to a lack of driving experience.
