Pass Plus Cymru

Pass Plus CymruBridgend County Borough Councils Road Safety Team in conjunction with Road Safety Wales and other local authorities across Wales are promoting the "Pass Plus Cymru", scheme.

The project is aimed at young drivers who’ve recently passed their test and aims to help them improve driving skills, gain extra experience, and obtain a discount on their car insurance. Young drivers may feel confident behind the wheel but may lack awareness of how their decisions could affect themselves, their passengers and other road users.

The project requires young drivers to attend a three hour theory session, which is conducted at the BCBC Waterton depot training room, arrangements are then made for `on-the-road in-car’ session(s) with a Pass Plus-registered Approved Driving Instructor.

The Pass Plus scheme comprises of six specially designed modules which cover:

  • Driving around town
  • Driving out of town
  • Driving in all weathers
  • Driving at night
  • Driving on dual carriageways
  • Driving on motorways

Also covered is defensive driving, hazard awareness, concentration, speed, drugs and drink driving, safe attitudes and behavior.

The participants will be trained by a professional driving instructor, and will gain valuable extra experience and motoring skills.

What are the benefits for young drivers attending the scheme.
As well as reducing the risk of being involved in a road crash, the scheme will enable young drivers to gain valuable experience and skills.
