Take extra lessons to improve your driving confidence and skills

Taking additional driving lessons once you have passed your test can make driving in unfamiliar situations a much less nerve racking experience.

Although we will try and make your driving experience varied during the course of your lessons, it's simply not possible to cover all eventualities. Motorway driving is a prime example as it is not currently legal to drive on a motorway before you have your driving licence, even with an instructor.

I offer lessons for drivers who already have their licence aimed at improving confidence and skill and can be tailored to your particular requirements. These can be in the form of an individual lesson e.g.. a couple of hours to cover safe entry, exit and lane changing on a motorway, or can be a complete Pass Plus course.

Please call to discuss your requirements and to book your extra driving tuition

Already have your driving licence?

Passing your test is just the start of your driving career and recent passers are far more likely to be involved in a collision in their first 2 years of driving then at any other time.

A Pass Plus course can help you reduce this risk and there is also some useful links and videos that are worth watching no matter how long ago you passed.

Information about the Pass Plus course

Pass Plus Courses - Make you a safer, more compitent driverYou have passed your driving test and can now drive by yourself. This is an exciting time - driving gives you freedom and independence. However, it is also very expensive - insurance premiums for new drivers can often far exceed the cost of a car.

WHY?

Statistics show new drivers of any age are more likely to have an accident within the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career. It is basically down to a lack of experience. Insurance premiums reflect the increased risk.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT THIS?

Sign up for Pass Plus, a training scheme for new drivers. It is designed to develop your skills and knowledge to make you a safer driver.

EXTEND YOUR DRIVING EXPERIENCE SAFELY

Your initial driver training should provide you with a varied range of road and traffic conditions. However, this training often takes place within a familiar area, as there are time constraints and lesson objectives to consider. Pass Plus provides the opportunity to drive out of your local area, extending your driving experience safely.

BUILD ON YOUR EXISTING SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE

You already know how to drive so your Pass Plus sessions will be different to a driving lesson. You will develop your confidence and ability to deal with unfamiliar road and traffic conditions under the guidance of an experienced professional.

SAVE MONEY ON YOUR INSURANCE PREMIUMS

Many insurance companies offer discounts to new drivers who have completed the Pass Plus course, so it is worth shopping around for the best deals. Although the discount is only offered on the first year‘s insurance, if you stay claim free, you will begin to build your no claims bonus, leading to lower premiums year on year.

PASS PLUS MAKES SENSE FINANCIALLY AND COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

THE PASS PLUS COURSE

Designed by the Driving Standards Agency, Pass Plus aims to develop a positive approach to driving through two key factors - your attitude and your skills.

The course is organised into 6 modules

  1. Introduction and town driving
  2. All weather driving
  3. Out of town driving and rural roads
  4. Night driving
  5. Dual Carriageways
  6. Motorways

You have to complete all modules and undertake at least 6 hours of training. The amount of time spent on each module will vary according to individual needs. You will not have to take another test - your instructor will continually assess your driving. To gain your certificate your driving needs to demonstrate you have ‘achieved‘ or ‘exceeded‘ the required skills and knowledge in each module.
