Pass plus for young drivers
Helping new drivers become better drivers
The scheme was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.
Young drivers are much more likely to be involved in a crash on the roads, often due to inexperience and a lack of knowledge of the risks. About 1 in 4 deaths on the road are drivers aged 17 to 24.

The course consists of six driver training sessions, to develop your skills in:
- town driving
- driving in all weathers
- countryside and rural road driving
