Topham Pass Plus course 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 should be most useful to new drivers in the year after passing their test.
How Pass Plus training works
Pass Plus training takes at least 6 hours. It has 6 modules, covering driving:
All modules should be practical sessions, although local conditions may mean some are theory based. You’ll normally spend at least 5.5 hours driving.
You won’t take a test but you’ll be assessed throughout the course. To pass you’ll have to reach the required standard in all modules.
Apply for a Pass Plus certificate
You must apply for your own Pass Plus certificate if you want one.
You need a certificate if you want a discount on your car insurance.
You’ll get a training report form from your instructor when you’ve reached the required standard in all modules. You and your instructor must sign the form.
Send the signed form to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). You’ll be sent a certificate by post.

Car insurance discounts
Once you’ve completed Pass Plus you may be able to get a car insurance discount. You’ll need your Pass Plus certificate.
Check with insurers that you can still get a discount if you passed your practical driving test more than a year ago. The amount of discount depends on the insurance company. Not all insurers offer Pass Plus discounts. You might be able to put the discount on hold for up to 2 years if you don’t have a car at the moment - check with the insurance company first.
