Pass plus is a course you can take when you have passed your test which improves your basic skills which helps give new drivers confidence and the increase experience on the roads and practice on the motorway.
Refresher lessons are for people who have passed their test and then find they need some more lessons to brush them up a bit.
After experiencing driving on your own for the first time, you may notice you need a little bit of a help with certain things. You may need to have refresher lessons early or you may find you need some at a later stage of driving. There is no shame in wanting a couple of lessons to brush up on things you are not sure about no matter how long you have been driving for. Refresher lessons can make you a safer and more confident driver.
As you will be able to go on the motorway when you have passed, you could try going on the motorway with an instructor. For example, if it is your first time on a motorway you may not want to go on your own and need a little help with how it all works.
Maybe you have been driving for years but you become a bit rusty and with the rules for tests changing it is a good idea to get some lesson to freshen yourself up.
