Increase your MPG with techniques and training in the most effective fuel saving driving.

We can show your drivers how to drive their modern engined vehicle the most effective way possible without any loss in speed.


Ecodriving is a term used to describe energy efficient use of vehicles. It is a great and easy way to reduce fuel consumption from road transport so that less fuel is used to travel the same distance.

In the last decades, engine technology and performance of cars has improved rapidly, while most drivers have not adapted their driving style. Ecodriving represents a driving culture which suits modern engines and makes best use of advanced vehicle technologies. Ecodriving offers numerous benefits, including GHG emissions reductions, fuel cost savings, as well as greater safety and comfort.

There are many smart and safe driving techniques which can lead to significant fuel saving possibilities. Below you will find the Golden and Silver Rules of Ecodriving, which were defined by the ECOWILL consortium and several external experts in 2011. These rules include additional explanations which are directed at professionals.

However, please keep in mind that Ecodriving cannot be learned properly when drivers just try to follow some tips listed, but in order to achieve considerable effects, drivers should also attend an Ecodriving training given by a qualified driving instructor. Such training may consist of a theoretical part but also include practical driving on public roads.

Adrian Baldry is a EcoWill approved trainer. Watch my video on the Fleet Driver Training page to see how to improve your MPG.

Your Practical Test will include a 20 minute section of independent driving

During your test you’ll have to drive independently by either following.

  • A series of directions
  • traffic signs or a Satnav
