8 out of 10 pass first time with Uncle Joe! Real Life Case Studies

Pass Plus

The Pass Plus Scheme (Pass Plus) is aimed at helping new car drivers become better drivers and can help to lower insurance premiums. Read on for more details…

About Pass Plus

Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.

Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test. This is because of their lack of driving experience.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.

Pass Plus modules

Pass Plus consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:

  • in town
  • in all weathers
  • on rural roads
  • at night
  • on dual carriageways
  • on motorways

How you’ll be instructed: 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.

  • Duration

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.

You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.

  • Recording progress

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.


At the end of your training

On successfully completing your training you’ll be sent your Pass Plus certificate to claim your discount on your car insurance policy. The guide price for the passplus course starts from £200



"Uncle Joe gave me the reassurance I needed to pass my practical test. He brought my confidence way up through his excellent advise which built during each lesson. Having spent far too long with a different unreliable driving instructor who was more interested in money, I then decided to seek out a better instructor. This is when Uncle Joe was recommended to me by a friend who had passed first time with him. Anyone who is thinking of learning to drive with Unlce Joe can expect is a calm, honest but determined man who's passion is success for his students. Not only does he mould you to become a safe driver, he builds your confidence. His method of teaching is excellent and he can always find something to improve on. His attention to detail and insight into what to expect from the test set me up perfectly and I passed first time with him. I will be forever grateful for his contribution in my journey and will always recommend him to anyone learning to drive. Thank you Uncle Joe "  Read More
