Young Drivers: We'll give you £££ to improve your driving - take the Pass Plus Course

As part of their contribution to improving the driving standards of under 25s and helping them become more confident drivers, all of the Community Safety Groups in Aberdeenshire are offering financial support to drivers under the age of 25 taking the Pass Plus course.

From 1st April 2018, the Aberdeenshire Community Safety Partnership is offering 100 towards the cost of the Pass Plus driving course for young drivers under 25 years of age who are resident in Aberdeenshire.

The cost of taking the Pass Plus course is usually £150 and upwards.

Please note that the grants are only available while funds last and are, therefore, offered on a first come, first served basis.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver. It could also result in lower car insurance costs, as some insurance companies are offering discounts for new drivers with a Pass Plus certificate.

You should have received information on the Pass Plus scheme when you passed your practical driving test but further details can be obtained from the Pass Plus web site if necessary.
