The Argyll and Bute Council Road Safety Team in partnership with DRIVESafe in Argyll and Bute, are pleased to be offering a grant of £75.00 to new drivers completing the Pass Plus Scheme.
Pass Plus is an additional course aimed at new drivers living in Argyll and Bute who would like to further improve their confidence and driving skills after passing their practical test. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.
The Scheme consists of six hours extra training covering driving:
- In town
- In all weather
- At night
- On dual carriageways
- On motorways
- On rural/single track roads
This is an excellent opportunity to develop your driving skills further in these areas and the chance to gain cheaper car insurance. It will teach you how to anticipate and plan for all kinds of hazards and help you become a more confident driver.
