Driver Coaching and Pass Plus

Standard Lessons:

We structure our lessons for the needs of each pupil, taking you towards and beyond test standard as quickly as your ability allows. We plan our courses to meet each individual pupils needs and learning goals. We have a full syllabus to take you towards your test at your own speed.

At passport2drive we use 'self assessment' so that every pupil can track their own progress!


The average learner does not exist, we all learn at different rates. Latest Driving Standards Agency statistics show that most 17 year olds need 45 hours of traffic experience with their Instructor and 22 hours private practice before reaching test standard. It should be appreciated that this can rise steeply, particularly for the more mature learners.

Pass Plus:

Passing your driving test is just the first step in your driving career. Sadly young and inexperienced drivers are involved in relatively more accidents that other driving groups.
To reduce your chances of being one of these statistics, or causing others to be involved, you should organise additional lessons after your test:

1. Take a motorway lesson as soon as you get your licence. At present you cannot drive on a motorway on your provisional licence.

2. If you would like to improve your skills in 'ice and snow' driving then contact so that you do not get caught out when it does snow. We can organise 'skid pan' sessions!

3. The best advice is to take the complete “Pass Plus” course. This involves 6 hours further training in varying conditions and on motorways. PASS PLUS is a training scheme linked to insurance discounts that will benefit you, as a NEWLY QUALIFIED DRIVER, by Saving you money on your car insurance premiums, Showing you a Positive Driving Style which is both enjoyable and safe, Helping you gain quality driving experience safely. You will also experience roads that have been inaccessible as a learner driver.

The PASS PLUS course has been designed in six one hour modules these are:

1) INTRODUCTION We will introduce the course and outline the disciplines and benefits of the course. This will be partly theory followed by a drive.

2) TOWN DRIVING This is a practical session concentrating on observation, anticipation and judgement.
