Through adopting this approach with driving savings in terms of fuel, emissions, whole life vehicle costs  will be reduced.

Safety will never be compromised to achieve fuel savings.

The course s a combination of in class theory and on road practical demonstration and coaching.



UK Road Safety: Eco - Driving Philosophy

In the recent years Fleet Driver Training and Individual Driver Training has often been concerned with maximising performance with handling and safety. This has not necessarily been fuel efficient and ecologically friendly, & will frequently lead to the wrong approach by drivers.

With fuel prices increasing and  pressure on Governments to reduce Co2 emissions ECO - Driving is a step in the right direction for both corporate fleet organisations and the individual motorist.

ECO Driving is primarily concerned with developing a planned & measured drive maximising safety for all & consideration for the environment through reduced emissions & noise and encouraging a relaxed and more stress free driving style.

Benefits of ECO - Driving:

bulletECO - Drivers use 10 to 15% less fuel than drivers without ECO Driver Training experience
bulletECO - Drivers produce a more comfortable, efficient, economic and vehicle sympathetic ride reducing wear, tear & reduced need for repairs
bulletECO -Drivers retain a greater understanding of their responsibilities to other road users & the environment well after training

The programme has been made available to those within the City of Bristol and is partly subsidised if attendees undertake fuel monitoring prior to and after the course.

Many Bristol City based organisations and individuals have taking advantage of this scheme and are realising that ECO driving has far reaching benefits in terms of reducing fuel costs, encouraging a more relaxed and stress free style of driving and contributing to carbon foot print reduction.
