Good News for Young Drivers

Young drivers up to the age of 21 can now take advantage of the benefits a Pass Plus driving course.

Kent County Council’s Road Safety team has extended the age range for subsidised training of Pass Plus to 21 year olds.

Educational commitments mean many young people are learning to drive later. IMG_3496bfree-largePass Plus in Kent is being subsidised by £60 to encourage young drivers to take the additional training and hopefully become safer drivers.

The course is six hours in total and delivered by Approved Driving Instructors over several sessions.

It is taken after people have passed their driving test and instructs on motorway driving, town and country driving, all weather and night driving.

Residents in the Kent County Council area who have passed their driving test within the last 12 months and are aged 17-21 can apply by clicking here.

  • live in the Kent County Council catchment area (excluding Medway)
