If you leave plenty of room in front of the cars you're passing, and not exceeding the speed limit, I wouldnt' call it aggressive driving. Here in the U.S., if you're going the speed limit, you aint passin' nobody. Except in a traffic jam.
Are you talking about stop and go, heavy traffic? In that case, I think it would be better to leave a buffer between you and the car ahead, and stay in your lane. I think The List refers to this as 'play the accordian'.
