3. How Pass Plus training works
Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules, covering driving:
• in town
• in all weathers
• on rural roads
• at night
• on dual carriageways
• on motorways
All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You’ll normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving.
You won’t take a test but you’ll be assessed throughout the course. To pass you’ll have to reach the required standard in all modules.
You’ll be sent a Pass Plus certificate after you’ve successfully finished your training. You’ll need this when applying for a car insurance discount.
Contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) Pass Plus team for more information.

4. Car insurance discounts
Once you’ve completed Pass Plus you may be able to get a car insurance discount. You’ll need your Pass Plus certificate.
Check with insurers that you can still get a discount if you passed your practical driving test more than a year ago.
The amount of discount depends on the insurance company. Not all insurers offer Pass Plus discounts.
You might be able to put the discount on hold for up to 2 years if you don’t have a car at the moment – check with the insurance company first.
