Pass Plus course fee assistance from local authorities

If you want to sign up for a Pass Plus course, you'll need to find an approved driving instructor (ADI). They will need to be registered to give Pass Plus training. Find out if your local authority gives financial help with the cost of taking Pass Plus.

Local authorities who sponsor Pass Plus courses

A number of local authorities will help you with the costs of Pass Plus training once you have selected a Pass Plus ADI.

If your borough, town, city or county council is listed, contact them to see if they can help you with the cost of your training. They can offer discounts of up to 50 per cent off the full training costs.
