Eco Defensive Driver Training

Our Eco defensive driver training courses are delivered by our in-house, RoSPA accredited instructors. They have specifically designed for van and company car drivers to reduce accidents and improve fuel efficiency.

Course Overview

With the cost of fuel is at the highest level in decades. Outside influences are also continuing to push up prices to unseen levels. Companies across the UK are also being forced to assess their impact on the environment. With this in mind many businesses are looking for ways to reduce their fuel consumption in line with their corporate social responsibilities and to reduce costs. Fortunately, our eco defensive driver training are run company wide as part of eco-driving initiative, or they can be used individually for drivers who need to use high consumption vehicles. So if you have a fleet, or drivers with high millage, then take a look how this course can help you.


We run two similar courses which can be ran together or independently. 

Fuel efficient Defensive Driving Training Course: 

This course look at ways to reduce your annual vehicle fuel bills, and cut your vehicle maintenance bills by reducing accident damage. Our Fuel Efficient Defensive Driving (FEDD) course has a proven record of reducing fuel consumption and costs.

Eco-Driver Training – Fuel Efficiency Courses from the EST:

The Energy Saving Trust have recently opened up their training so that independent providers can run their renowned courses with full accreditation. The Eco-driving course can either be incorporated into one of our traditional defensive driving courses, or it can be run as a short-course option. The 50 minute short-course allows us to train up to eight drivers per day.

Funding is available for any of our courses which include the EST principles, which subsidises the cost of training to employers. With on-the-day fuel efficiencies averaging 14.4%, and proven ongoing savings of between 3%-6% in long-term studies, this approach is proven and effective.

Both are delivered on site.
