Driver Training

Benefit from Driver Hire's Fuel Efficient Driving Training

Perhaps you're a driver and you'd like to learn more about how to driver more fuel efficiently - the figures show that drivers who can demonstrate an understanding of the issues are more likely to find work than those who don't have that knowledge.

Perhaps you're a fleet manager and you would like to offer our training to your own drivers.

Either way, we can help.

Course content:

The training we provide is divided into three key phases:

Before You Set Off
Pre-driving vehicle checks are essential - these include tyres, body, fuel tank etc

On The Road
A wide range of factors affect fuel consumption on the road. These include:

* Attitude
* Fitness
* Reading the road ahead
* Hazard awareness
* Using vehicle momentum
* Correct use of equipment including gears, brakes, cruise control, engine brakes etc

Back At Base
Even when the journey is over, there are things you can do to make a difference:
* Parking up
* Refuelling
* Measuring
* Reporting defects
