Ripon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 31, 2014 -- Bill Plant Corporate Driver Management and the Government-Funded Energy Saving Trust are proud to announce their Partnership.
Bill Plant is a Driving School offering Driving Lessons to students up and down the UK.
We are now able to offer a Government Subsidy for the Smarter Driving training programme where Company Vehicle Drivers are trained in energy efficient driving via an Eco-driving Course, which aims of reducing your fuel bill and hence air pollution.
This available for drivers of Cars and Vans up to 3,500 Kgs.
Eco-Driving is a recognised and proven style of driving than can contribute to safer roads and a greener environment. It incorporates 3 key techniques; greater anticipation, use of gears and trailing throttle.
A recent survey has shown that drivers of company vehicles and private vehicles that are used for work (grey fleet), use considerably more fuel than vehicles used for private use. With Transport currently accounting for 20% of all air pollution emissions in the world, Eco-driving is not only about driving at lower speeds, but also about avoiding the wastage of fuel through needless braking or accelerating, thereby helping to reduce the damage to our planet and the air we breathe.
However it is the Driver who has the most significant effect on Fuel Economy by carrying out the following actions:
Turning your engine off if you've stopped for a long time
Using air conditioning sparingly
Checking your tyre pressures
Sticking to the speed limit
Parking in the shade
Using cruise control where fitted
Reversing into parking spaces
Reduce Drag - remove racks, carriers and boxes
Keeping your car well maintained
Bill Plant CDM Driving Instructors can show you how to save up to 20% of your company fuel bills, whilst reducing accident costs and making your drivers safer
If your organisation would like to take part in the training, or to discuss you specific requirements and how we can tailor a package to suit your Company, please either call our dedicated help line or e mail us with your request.To learn more about Eco Driving Lessons visit, http://www.billplant.co.uk/
