The Pass Plus course is offered in Dudley by Safe 4 Life Driver Training. It’s a training course for newly qualified drivers, designed by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) along with help from the insurance industry and driving instructors.
Statistically, new drivers have a higher likelihood of being involved in an accident within the first two years after passing their driver test. The reason for this is generally because of their lack of experience at driving in certain common situations. The course helps you to develop your existing driving skills. You will learn more about how to anticipate, plan for and deal with many kinds of hazards that you would normally come across while driving. This builds your confidence, therefore making you a better and safer driver.
Pass Plus is made up of six modules, covering driving in different conditions:
- in town
- in all weathers
- on rural roads
- at night
- on dual carriageways
- on motorways
Benefits Of Pass Plus

Insurance companies favour clients who present a reduced risk – so therefore you are likely to get cheaper car insurance as a result of taking this course. Pass Plus gives you valuable extra experience and positive driving skills that would otherwise take a long time to acquire, helping you to become a safer and better driver.
Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide
At the start of your course, your instructor will give you a copy of the ‘Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide’. This contains detailed information about all aspects of Pass Plus.
Pass Plus training will take at least six hours, though it can take longer if your instructor thinks it’s necessary.
The training sessions
Pass Plus is a practical course and all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions and time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. A theory session could be given if there is no motorway nearby. Generally at least five and a half out of six hours should be spent in the car.
There is no test to take at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.
Your instructor will complete a training report form that you’ll sign and date when you reach the required standard in each module. To pass the course you’ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all the course modules. You’ll be given a progress record to help you to keep track of your progress throughout the course
