First and foremost the pass plus scheme is aimed at making new drivers out there better drivers.

You will receive a certificate from D.S.A proving you have fully completed all 6 modules, the 6 different modules are listed below as follows and are all aimed at driving in different conditions which in itself could prove to be very knowlegable and benefical over the forthcoming years:
