Eco Fuel Efficient Training
What Is Eco Fuel Efficient Driving?
Eco Fuel Efficient Driving is a way of driving your vehicle that helps to improve fuel efficiency. Estimates suggest that uneconomical drivers use 30% more fuel on average, which has implications for your business and the environment. By driving in a more fuel-efficient manner, your employees can help your business save money and lower your carbon footprint. Eco Fuel Efficient Training can help you achieve this.
Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training helps to upskill road users, helping to make them safe and responsible drivers. The training has a focus on encouraging better use of the vehicle’s controls and developing the driver’s anticipation skills.
Improved fuel efficiency is the main benefit of this training, with drivers able to travel further using less fuel. Other advantages include reduced wear and tear on the vehicle, reduced emissions and reduced risk of accidents.
All of our corporate driver training courses are delivered through our sister company Advanced Driving Academy.
What Can Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training Do For You?
Whether you’re self-employed and drive for work, or have a fleet of vehicles on the road, our Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training Course can have a wealth of benefits for your business. As a society, we have become more environmentally aware, which has pressured many businesses to become more environmentally conscious. Through driving in a fuel-efficient manner, your employees help to reduce your business’ carbon footprint and help establish you as a ‘green’ brand. This can have a host of benefits, including customers viewing you more favourably. In addition to environmental factors, uneconomical drivers can cost your business money through increased fuel consumption.

Benefits of Driver Training
The benefits of Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training are numerous. By creating safer more fuel efficient drivers, we can help reduce your business’ carbon footprint, save money and greatly reduce the risk of accidents occurring.
Improving a driver’s skills can effectively help reduce fuel consumption through better driving practices. This not only helps your employees drive further for longer, on a tank of fuel but can help save your business money. Additionally, your business will benefit from fuel-efficient drivers in a variety of other ways, including:
- Introducing smoother use of the controls will reduce wear and tear
- Teaching correct use of gears for smoother driving will reduce emissions
- Reduces accident risk by increasing driver’s anticipation skills.

The Energy Saving Trust
Pass Drive is an Energy Saving Trust approved driver training company authorised to deliver Eco Fuel Efficient driver training in most areas of England. All our Eco Fuel Efficient driver trainers in England are DVSA-registered fleet trainers. They have attended one of Energy Saving Trust Train-the-Trainer courses.
Our Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training is subsidised by the Energy Saving Trust. The subsidy payment allows us to offer this course at a lower rate than other training. As it is for 50 minutes and a set course, no other form of training or risk assessment/report can be given. We can however integrate the course into a longer course for defensive driving and/or risk assessment training sessions.
You do not need to claim the subsidy as we do all the work.
We also deliver Eco Fuel Efficient Driver Training in Scotland with EST trained trainers. The subsidy is no longer available in Scotland, however this should not deter any organisation wishing to cut fuel cost. We believe that the saving will generally cover the cost of the training in a very short time and is a worthwhile investment.
Please call and we will be happy to discuss your fleet requirements and offer a course specific to your needs.
