FREE Eco Safe Driving

There are many techniques which drivers can use to significantly reduce fuel costs, one of the best way for drivers to learn these techniques is to participate in a one hour Eco-driving training session. These sessions have a proven track record and have helped drivers to achieve considerable savings on fuel, as well as reducing accident risk. Drivers are trained by suitably qualified fleet driver trainers. Client Centred Learning Ltd have been appointed by the Energy Saving Trust to carry out this training programme on their behalf.

The Subsidised Eco-driving Training scheme benefits from a grant via the Department for Transport and will run until 31 March 2015. There are 8,500 driver training places available during the current financial year

The key benefits of Eco-driving include:

15% reduction in fuel consumption*

15% reduction in CO2*

DfT figures*

The scheme is open to drivers of cars and vans (not exceeding 3,500kg) with either an manual or automatic transmission

The cost of the session can be as low as £10 (after subsidy) and lasts one hour

The training session costs are all tax-deductible
