Learner Driver Packs

Learning to drive can take a long time and can be expensive. It is mainly dependant on the abilities of the individual being taught. However, a bad instructor, or one that you are not comfortable with, also affects the rate at which you will learn.

That is why DriveAbility offers a variety of packages which can help to reduce the overall cost of learning. Please refer to the price list below for full details.

Payments for packages and gift vouchers can be made by bank transfer, internet banking, debit cards, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay or Android Pay. Sadly, cash and cheques are no longer accepted as my bankers have closed all branches that are local to me.

Pass Plus

Pass Plus is a practical training course that takes at least 6 hours and is for drivers to improve their skills and drive more safely.

It can be taken at any time although it would be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.

DriveAbility is a Pass Plus registered Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) who is able to teach you.

It may help you get a car insurance discount if you successfully complete the course. Please approach your insurance company to see if they offer discounts. In addition some local authorities offer contributions to the cost of Pass Plus.

Pass Plus training has 6 modules, covering driving:

  • in town
  • in all weathers
  • on rural roads
  • at night
  • on dual carriageways
  • on motorways

Motorway Driving

This package covers the Motorways & Dual Carriageways module of the Pass Plus package and is useful for mature or refresher students who may want some guidance on how to drive safely on motorways.

Night Driving

Also part of the Pass Plus package. Lessons will be given in the evening to prepare the pupil for the effects of dazzle from on-coming vehicles. It concentrates on anticipation and defensive driving techniques to ensure that the driver and other road users are all kept safe.
