Our 50 minute Fuel Efficient Driver Training Courses, is split into two circuits of the same route,  with each circuit lasting around 15 to 20 minutes. On the first circuit, the driver will drive as normal. This allows for our trainer to identify areas for development. At the end of the first drive, we record the data, for example, the distance travelled, taken, average speed and mpg for that trip. This is followed by a short discussion about the drive and results, before undertaking the second drive, on which the trainer will offer coaching on eco-driving techniques. On average,  we generally record an improvement of 14.8% on the second circuit.
