Packages for Full Licence Holders


Why would you need driving lessons if you already have your licence? On the other hand are you a nervous driver even though you have passed your test?

The fear of driving simply doesn’t end after the test has been passed. If getting in the driver’s seat makes you sweat or if you’re not used to driving on the left, refresher courses can give you that extra bit of confidence that you need. They can also help you polish up on your parking skills and turn you into a safer driver, particularly at night and in wintry conditions.

Even though you may be a safe, confident driver, a refresher session might optimise your gear changes so that you can save money on maintenance and fuel while reducing your carbon footprint. Sessions take place in your own car.



This entails: joining and leaving the motorway, lane discipline, safety gaps, rules of overtaking, blind spots, breakdowns and distractions. Sessions completed in your own car if you desire.



This focuses on specific areas, suited to your requirements, such as night driving, parking, town driving or driving on country roads. Sessions completed in your own car if you desire.



This teaches you how to drive in all weather conditions such as- fog, snow and night will be offered during the winter months. Please look out for these posts on the website, as they may well be last minute.



The aim of this session is to save you money ON FUEL AND MAINTENANCE COSTS! This can be achieved by improving fuel consumption through appropriate gear changes and reducing excessive acceleration. This results in more Mpg for your fuel, reduced carbon emissions, reduced wear and tear on your brake pads because of an improvement and reduction in sudden and hard braking.



Ever wondered why it can be so expensive to get car insurance for new drivers?  It is because, after 40 to 80 hrs of driving experience, most people forget that they are still an inexperienced driver. This course builds up your confidence and gives newly qualified drivers the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills to make better decisions on the road, thereby ensuring that your driving experience continues to be safe.

A minimum of 6 hrs tuition must be completed, in order to achieve the pass plus certificate from the DVLA. Once completed, you will get the added bonus of a discount on the insurance for your first vehicle.

The course is divided into modules:  

Town Driving: Driving in town can be daunting: rush hour traffic, complicated junctions and traffic systems. Learn the skills to deal with all these and more.

All-Weather Driving: Rain, fog, bright sunshine, snow and ice. Find out how to drive safely in all the different weather conditions you’ll face on the road. 

Driving Out of Town: Country roads can harbour all kinds of hazards, from sharp bends and potholes, to farm vehicles and animals in the road.  

Night Driving: Dealing with dazzle, judging distance and speed, using your lights correctly – these are just some of the areas covered.

Driving on Dual Carriageways: Drive safely on fast, multi-lane roads you’ll need all your skills of observation, concentration, anticipation and lane discipline.

Driving on MotorwaysMotorways are like no other roads: learn how to drive on them safely and correctly under expert supervision.

Please note that the Pass Plus course is not recognised by ALL insurance companies.
Therefore Drive Safe 4 Life Academy recommends that this course is completed alongside the BTEC level 2 certificate in Demonstrate Safe Driving to increase the likelihood of obtaining discounted insurance.
