Training your employees to become more efficient drivers can save your organisation up to 15 per cent on fuel costs, as well as being good for the environment. Based on 12,000 miles per annum, this equates to typical annual savings of £250 per driver.
The Energy Saving Trust offer ‘Smarter Driving‘ training for drivers at your own premises – experienced fleet driving instructors deliver the training, starting and finishing from wherever is convenient for you. They provide the car, fuel and insurance, and your staff can be back at work within an hour, or they can also train in your vehicles if you prefer.
Benefits of Smarter Driving:
- Up to 15 per cent reduction in fuel consumption
- Fewer accidents
- Reduced wear and tear on tyres, brakes and clutches
- Employee benefit as staff save money on private mileage
- Another aspect of driving smarter is to reduce the amount of time your vehicle spends idling. Find out more about reducing vehicle idling.
