Electric Vehicle Training

Electric Vehicle Training

What Is Electric Vehicle Training?

Our electric vehicle training courses develop your drivers’ skills and help them to get the most out of driving electric vehicles for business use. Driving an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle can be different from traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. The training that we provide will train and develop your drivers’ skill and knowledge, allowing them to improve their battery range, whilst removing barriers to adoption. This training will help familiarise your drivers with electric vehicles, whilst opening up your business to the full benefits of operating a green fleet.

 

The UK Government is encouraging businesses to adopt more electric vehicles. This is a key aspect of their ‘Road to Zero’ initiative, which seeks to reduce vehicle emissions across the UK. Through this, our electric vehicle training can be subsidised by the Energy Savings Trust. Their subsidy allows us to provide you with electric vehicle training at a discounted rate. We can provide this training for company cars and vans, including those in your grey fleet.  

What Can Electric Vehicle Training Do For My Business?

Electric vehicle training can have a variety of benefits for your business. Our electric vehicle training courses can help you and your drivers get the most out of your green fleet, through eco-driving techniques. Uneconomical drivers can cost your business money through increased battery consumption. This is an unnecessary cost, and our training can help develop your drivers’ skill to maximise battery performance. Through maximising battery performance, your drivers will be able to travel longer distances between vehicle charges. This training will help your drivers save your business money. 

In addition to maximising battery performance, our training will train your drivers to identify and plan routes in line with charging opportunities. Through effective planning, they can ensure that they use the most efficient routes with ample charging facilities. This will help ensure that you can continue to deliver high-quality services while lowering your businesses’ carbon footprint.

Our ev training also incorporates elements of eco-driving techniques. This training will encourage your drivers to make better use of the vehicles’ controls. In addition to this, our training will further develop your drivers’ awareness and anticipation skills. Through adopting these driving techniques, your drivers can improve battery performance, reduce wear and tear on your vehicles, and limit the risk of an incident occurring.

Our electric vehicle training can be delivered across a range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
