Eco Driver Training

Subsidised Ecodriver Training

There are many smart and safe techniques which drivers can use to significantly reduce their fuel costs; one of the best ways to learn these techniques is to take our one hour Ecodriving driver training course.

All training is given by suitably qualified driver instructors, and these courses have a proven record in helping to achieve considerable savings. AMC Driving Solutions has been appointed by the Energy Saving Trust to carry out this training programme on their behalf.

The Subsidised Ecodriving Training scheme benefits from a grant via the Department for Transport and will run until 31 March 2017. There are 8,500 drivers training places available during the current financial year. Benefits include:
