The first module begins with an introduction to pass plus. We then look at all aspects of driving in busy areas, observation, consideration, anticipation, spatial awareness and unusual road systems are some of the areas covered. We will also look at specific areas your future driving may entail e.g. driving to college or University.
All Weather Driving
Correct speed, safe stopping distances and see and be seen.
Driving out of Town
This module will be taken out of town on country roads, we look at the main differences between town driving and country driving.
By driving in the dark on many of the roads you are used to you will learn about the differences in visibility, speed and stopping distances.
You will develop your ability to join and exit dual carriageways, forward plan and overtake. By the end of the session you should feel more confident with faster moving roads.
Driving on Motorways
Similar to the dual carriageway session you will develop your ability to join and leave the motorway safely, you will overtake slower vehicles and gain an understanding of motorway signs and regulations.
Pass Plus is a practical driving course which takes 6 hours in total. Your instructor will complete a Training Report Form which you sign and date as you attain the required level in each of the 6 modules. You must complete all 6 modules to pass the pass plus course.
Having successfully completed the course you can send your Training Report Form to the DSA who will then issue you a Pass Plus Certificate of Completion.
