Well done. You’ve passed your test and now you want to cut your insurance premiums down to size. You’d probably like to become a more confident and self-assured driver too.
In that case, Pass Plus is for you. Pass Plus is the government’s scheme for improving the safety record of newly qualified drivers – and saving them a few pounds into the bargain. In fact everyone is so keen to help you become a better driver, your local authority may well pay back almost half the cost of your Pass Plus lessons.
Although there’s no test for a Pass Plus certificate, you do have to work hard. Pass Plus involves a minimum of six one-hour sessions covering town and out-of-town driving, all-weather and night-time driving, and driving on motorways and dual carriageways.
You come away with much more confidence, a shed-load of new skills, and a certificate that qualifies you for discounts on your insurance.
Don’t delay savings and refunds are time-sensitive:
There are time limits to Pass Plus benefits. To be in with a chance of a refund or insurance savings, you must apply for Pass Plus within 12 months of passing your test.
Pass Plus is all about being a safer driver, which is why most insurers are offering discounts to Pass Plus drivers.
If you’re aged between 17 and 25, you could get a refund of £70 on your Pass Plus fees. For details, call Transport for London on 0845 230 1725.
Many local authorities are offering Pass Plus incentives. Call your local council to find out what’s happening in your area.
