Pass Plus

The Pass Plus initiative is aimed at young drivers (between 17 – 24) who live in Wales and have recently passed their test. The initiative aims to help young drivers:

  • improve driving skills,
  • gain extra experience, and
  • obtain a discount on their car insurance.

The project will require young drivers to attend a three hour theory session, which is conducted at the Road Safety Centre, Maindy on a Saturday morning and followed by an eight hour ‘on-the-road in-car’ session (split between two drivers) with a Pass Plus-registered Approved Driving Instructor.

The Pass Plus scheme comprises of six specially designed modules which cover:

  • Driving around town
  • Driving out of town
  • Driving in all weathers
  • Driving at night
  • Driving on dual carriageways
  • Driving on motorways

Defensive driving, hazard awareness, concentration, speed, drugs and drink driving, safe attitudes and behavior are also covered.

Because the participants will be trained by a professional driving instructor, they’ll gain valuable extra experience and positive motoring skills that would otherwise take a long time to acquire.

All the young drivers who take part will have the opportunity to improve their driving skills on this enhanced Pass Plus scheme, which is also supported by Cardiff Council and the Welsh Government.
