Our small print
Driving’s your responsibility – take action to become an even better driver.
Pass Plus Cymru could be right up your street. It’s a short, expert-led higher driving course designed for young people to develop road techniques and to widen experience.
It’s supported by the Welsh Assembly Government.

*By building on your driving skill, knowledge and hazard awareness, it can reduce your risk of being involved in a crash and help you qualify for a substantial discount with many insurance companies.

You’ve probably heard about Pass Plus, the Driving Standard Agency’s course of six lessons which helps provide valuable additional driving experience and teaches you how to deal with a wide range of road and traffic situations that you may not have encountered whilst learning. Pass Plus has proved effective in building on existing skills and knowledge, reducing the risk of being in a road crash and saving money on car insurance.

But what’s Pass Plus Cymru?

Pass Plus Cymru has been developed to offer a lot more than the basic Pass Plus scheme.

What’s Involved?

A group discussion forum (compulsory)

  • Approximately 3 hours with an experienced driver trainer.
  • In a group of up to 16 young drivers.
  • The interactive session covers all 6 elements of the Pass Plus Scheme
    defensive driving issues, as well as looking at driving attitude.
  • On-the-road training

  • Following the theory session participants will be appropriately paired. Each pair will go on to spend a whole day, or two half-day sessions, taking turns with an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) carrying out on-road driver training. This is done as soon as possible after the evening theory input.
  • The on road training will cover the Pass Plus modules as well as dealing with other situations as they occur.
  • You will be treated at all times as a fully qualified driver!
  • Why should I do it? 

  • As well as reducing your road risk and helping you gain valuable experience and skills, on completion of the course each candidate will be issued with a Certificate of Achievement as well as the Pass Plus Certificate (see note). This will allow you to claim the benefits outlined under the Pass Plus Scheme
  • The cost of the whole course is £20, a massive discount from the normal cost of between £120 and £150 (Made possible by a special road safety grant from the Welsh Assembly Government)
  • If you do not meet the criteria under the the pass plus cymru scheme, don’t despair we can provide a non subsidised Pass plus course covering on the road training at a special price of £120 subject to conditions.
  • To join the course you must:

  • Be between the ages of 17-25
  • Hold a full driving licence
  • Live in Wales

    If you meet the criteria, simply contact us and see when the next course is running in your area. Before you know it you will be driving with increased awareness, more skill and greater safety!

    You’ve passed your driving test - now you can drive on your own at last. But it doesn’t stop there; this is just the end of the beginning…

    Getting your own car will give you the independence you need. For a new driver, the cost of insurance can be sky high.

    And the reason for this?
    Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years of passing their test than at any other time in their driving career.
    Age doesn’t matter – it’s basically down to a lack of driving experience.
    That’s where PASS PLUS comes in!
