Be an ‘eco-safe’ driver and contribute to road safety as well as reducing your fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. Making changes to your driving style will also save you money. Anyone sitting a car, bus or lorry driving test will get feedback on their eco-safe driving manner.
Eco-safe driving assessment as part of the practical driving test
You will be assessed on your ability to drive using Eco-safe driving techniques during your practical test for feedback purposes only, this assessment is not part of the existing criteria for the practical test.
The driving examiner will assess your driving style which focuses on your control of the vehicle and your forward planning skills. At the end of the test the examiner will give you feedback, as guidance, on how efficiently you were driving. Always try to use the vehicle controls as smoothly as possible, with particular attention to:
Starting and moving away
Driving at an appropriate speed
This reduces wear and tear on your vehicle and will help in reducing carbon dioxide (CO2).
Become an eco-safe driver and drive more efficiently
Eco-safe driving is a recognised and proven style of driving that contributes to road safety whilst reducing fuel consumption and emissions. One of the main factors in increasing road safety is the emphasis on planning ahead so that you are prepared in advance for potential hazards. By increasing your hazard perception and planning skills you can make maximum use of your vehicle’s momentum, engine braking and engine torque and, by doing this, can reduce fuel consumption and damage to the environment.
