Pass Plus Scheme

What is it?

The Pass Plus scheme is aimed at new drivers to help them become better drivers. It was designed by the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry.

The course consists of six driver training sessions, to develop your skills in:

  • town driving

  • driving in all weathers

  • countryside and rural road driving

  • driving at night

  • driving on dual carriageways

  • motorway driving

How do I qualify for Hampshire's Pass Plus scheme?

You must:

  • live in the Hampshire County Council local authority area (this excludes the City of Southampton, the City of Portsmouth and IOW)

  • be aged17 to 24

  • have passed your driving test within the last 12 months

  • use one of the instructors on our list

How it works?

First of all, you must register for the scheme by following the link below.

Once your registration has been authorised, you will be sent a list of approved instructors that are eligible to deliver the scheme and your authorisation number which your instructor will ask for.

Hampshire County Council will pay £75 towards the cost of your Pass Plus course directly to your instructor, on completion of the 6 modules. You pay the remainder of the fee to the instructor at the beginning of the course.
