Driving with a pass plus driving license without passing the test

Q: I’m in a bit of a tricky situation. My dad has paid for my insurance (in UK where insurance is compulsory) which has been reduced because I have completed a driving scheme (pass plus) according to him. However, I haven’t completed it according to the rules. Thus can I still drive the car as my real insurance would be higher, meaning technically according to a driving instructor who works for the driving agency I haven’t completed it.

A: It is permissible as long as your driving is reliable and safe and you do not fear any legal implications.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
