Statistics prove that the risk of having an accident is highest during the first years of driving after passing the driving test. This is why the Government launched the Pass Plus programme.
Backed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) and major motor insurance companies, it is designed to help new drivers gain more experience and become better equipped for the demands
of modern driving.
The course needs to be taken within twelve months of passing your driving test to qualify for the insurance benefits.
The PASS PLUS course is a six-hour module, which will include motorway, bad weather, city and rural driving. After completion you will be able to obtain a discount from many insurance companies, subject to your personal circumstances.
This course has proved popular because the saving on insurance is far greater than the cost of the course.
This is the fifth year that South Lanarkshire Council have been running a subsidised Pass Plus scheme for newly qualified drivers. ( £75 subsidy )
