If you've just passed your driving test, the next phrase is one that you may have already heard.
"Now the real learning begins!"
It's a funny old saying, and it's partly true, but if you stick to the skills that you've learnt, you shouldn't have too many troubles. However, your driving lessons will have accounted for a small fraction of your driving experience and whilst you will have encountered many challenges, your instructor was always there to guide you. As you become more used to driving, you may have noticed that your driving style will change and that's not necessarily a bad thing - your driving should develop and adapt.
The problem is other drivers, areas and situations. The Pass Plus course is primarily designed for the driver who's already gained some experience and is seeking to improve their skills far beyond L-test standard.
The course will teach you:
Pass plus is a voluntary course, introduced by the DVSA and is considered the best way to give additional driving experience to a qualified learner by an ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) that has been Pass Plus registered.
As part of their contribution to improving the driving standards of under 25s and helping them become more confident drivers, all of the Community Safety Groups in Aberdeenshire are offering financial support to drivers under the age of 25 taking the Pass Plus course.
From 1st April 2018, the Aberdeenshire Community Safety Partnership is offering £100 towards the cost of the Pass Plus driving course for young drivers under 25 years of age who are resident in Aberdeenshire.
The cost of taking the Pass Plus course is usually £200 and upwards, dependent on how may hours you take to complete the course.
Please note that the grants are only available while funds last and are, therefore, offered on a first come, first served basis. Click on the above link for more details.
Please note that Pass Plus funding is not available for drivers in the Buchan Community Safety Group area.
