Can you save money on car insurance

Pass Plus courses are aimed at improving your driving skills and in some cases they may lower insurance premiums, The best thing to do is  get a quote for insurance with pass plus and then without and see if you will save any money. There are many insurance comparison  websites on the market such as Compare The Market & Money Supermarket. All you need to do is tell them a little about yourself, your driving history and the car you want to cover, and they will put together a list of quotes tailored to your requirements.

Can you take the Pass Plus Course in your car

This is something you will have to discuss with your driving instructor. Of course, you’ll have to be accompanied by one of our driving instructors.  Our Blackpool driving school prefers to use our own tuition vehicles, however if you wish to take the course in your own car then please get in touch with us and we can discuss this further.

Do you have to sit an exam after the course

No, there is no exam to sit. Your driving instructor will monitor your driving skills on all the modules, and  once you have successfully completed all modules your instructor will sign off all the paperwork and you’ll be sent a Pass Plus Certificate.
