This course is designed to improve your skills as a driver. Studies have shown that new drivers will probably have an accident within 2 years of passing their driving test. This is nothing to do with age, it’s because of the lack of experience.
In a study for the DSA conducted on drivers after they had done Pass Plus:
• 93% felt more comfortable on the road • 89% considered their driving skills had improved
Please check with your insurance company if they offer the Pass Plus discount, not all insurance companies do offer this discount.
The idea is to take the Pass Plus course of lessons within 1 year of passing your driving test, but there is nothing stopping you taking the course at anytime. Please check with your insurance company before starting, to find out if they will offer you a discount after the 1 year period. For example:-You might only now have a car of your own. OR What happens if I take the Pass Plus and buy a car after my first year, will the discount still apply?
Good News there is no test to take at the end! You and your Instructor will fill out a training record, that will show that you have achieved a high enough standard to be awarded a Pass Plus certificate.
The course will last for a minimum of 6 hours. These lessons do not have to be taken at the same time, but should not be spread over to long a period.

Here are a few recent people who have passed with Drive Sussex. Are you next? Get in touch if you're based in Brighton, Eastbourne, Shoreham-By-Sea, or Worthing!
Drive Sussex was recommended to me by a friend. I found learning to drive about what I expected. The teaching methods I thought were very good, as I felt I didn't have to rush learning, and I didn't have to move on until I felt I'd learnt it properly. It was very comfortable and I had a good time learning.
He can drive to Uni and work. Good luck with the “Blues and Twos “ training, and hopefully not a too busy New Years Eve.
Congratulations to Karen Cristina of Shoreham-by-Sea. No more bus trips, fighting to get the buggy on!
