What is Eco Driving?

Eco Driving is driving in such a way that is both environmentally friendly, and economical.

Some people will take extreme views:

Some people will take their views to the opposite extreme:

Trying to be a little less extreme

All of us would probably gain some benefit if there was a little less pollution.

All of us, even the most affluent, would gain some benefit by spending less on fuel, and causing less wear and tear to our cars.

Eco Driving does not have to mean driving unrealistically slowly, neither does it mean doing anything that would compromise safety.

Eco Driving uses the skills of Advanced Driving and Defensive Driving, but uses them and adapts them to gain the environmental and economic benefits that good planning can deliver.

Eco Driving Training Course

There is no Eco Driving Test, so the level that you take your Eco Driving Skills to is your choice.

Choose the option that suits your requirements.

Planning Your Eco Driving Course

A typical Eco Driving Course to reach an equivalent level to an Advanced Driving Test would probably consist of about 6 training sessions, with practice in between, but everyone's needs are different.

An example of a typical course

This Training Programme is based on preparing someone for an equivalent standard to an Advanced Driving Test, however, if you simply want an introduction to Eco Driving techniques and principles, and their practical application, you may decide to have only one or two training sessions.

This Eco Driving Training Programme is based on Half Day (3 hour) training sessions.

It is only intended as a guide, as the structure and length of your course will be altered to suit your own individual needs.
