Fuel efficient driving training

Fuel efficient driving or ecodriving is about adopting driving techniques that maximise modern engines’ efficiency. Using less fuel when driving also means that carbon emissions and air pollutants from vehicles are reduced.

Ecodriving contributes to safety due to the strong focus on greater anticipation. It is worth emphasising that it is not about sacrificing performance and enjoyment for the sake of doing the right thing; it is about a more professional approach and becoming a better driver. 

Fuel efficient ecodriving training

Energy Saving Trust's fuel efficient ecodriving training is provided by training companies in England and is based on extensive research into the technical and behavioural issues associated with reducing fuel consumption. So far, nearly 50,000 drivers in England and Scotland have received this subsidised training and on the day of training see an average of around 14% reduction in fuel consumption.

Whether you're a driver training company looking to offer Energy Saving Trust approved ecodriving training or an organisation looking to train employees to improve their driving efficiency, you'll find the information you need here using the relevant link below.
