Ecodriving is a smart way of driving which contributes to reduce fuel consumption, the emission of greenhouse gases and accident rates. Ecodriving is an adapted style of driving which best fits modern engine technology. Ecodriving means smart, smooth and safe driving engine speeds (2,000 to 2,500 revs per gear change) depending on the type of vehicle, an average saving of 10% to 15% on fuel can be achieved without an increase on journey time. The faster you go the greater the fuel consumption and pollution. Driving at 70mph uses up to 9% more fuel than 60mph and up to 15% more than at 50mph. Cruising at 80mph can use up to 25% more fuel than at 70mph.

New developments in engine technology have made it possible for new vehicles to be more efficient and environmentally friendly. However it is also important to train current licence holders who have been taught a driving style which does not fit today’s technology, for example drivers change gear at far too higher revs. Over recent years engines in vehicles have changed significantly while the driving style of most drivers have not moved with the times, for example block gear changing is perfectly acceptable.  

Training your employees to become more efficient drivers can save your company up to 15% on fuel costs, based on mileage of 12,000 miles per annum this equates to typical annual savings of around £200 - £250

Ecodriving brings safety benefits due to the focus on greater anticipation and avoidance of excessive speed. The link between the two is universally acknowledged throughout the driver training industry.


• Reduce the  likelihood of accidents
