Pass plus grant for newly qualified drivers

We give a £75 grant towards the cost of Pass Plus, which is approximately £140. This is for newly qualified drivers.

What is Pass Plus?

Pass Plus lets you build on existing skills and knowledge, gain valuable driving experiences and reduce the risk of road traffic accidents. It helps to increase your driving competency and may also entitle you to cheaper car insurance.

The training involves six sessions with a Pass Plus registered driving instructor to give you experience of driving in town, on rural roads, in all weathers, on dual carriageways and motorways and also driving in the dark.

  • apply to our Traffic and Transportation Section before starting the Pass Plus course.
