Eco Safe Driving Haywards Heath

Eco Safe Driving Haywards-Heath

If you are sitting a driving test you’ll also be assessed on your ability to drive or ride in a way that shows eco safe driving techniques. This assessment is not part of the existing assessment criteria for the practical test and you will not fail your test because you don’t demonstrate eco-safe driving techniques.

Doing it right and safely

We all need to start tackling climate change and taking some responsibility. While leaving the car at home is the best way to reduce C02 emissions, we all need to think about how our essential car journeys can have the least impact on the environment whilst we are on the roads.

What are the benefits?

When buying a car consider a hybrid which use less fuel. These savings add up over the life of the car and, especially with fuel prices on the rise, can be considerable. Be sure to take these fuel savings into consideration when weighing up the up-front cost of the car.

What will be assessed?

The driving examiner will assess control and planning, and at the end of the test will give you feedback, as guidance, on how efficiently you are driving.

CONTROL

Always try to use the vehicle controls as smoothly as possible, with particular attention to:

    • starting and moving away
    • accelerating
    • using gears
    • driving at an appropriate speed

This reduces wear and tear on your vehicle and will help in reducing CO2.

PLANNING

Reduce harmful emissions by anticipating road traffic conditions and acting in good time, rather than reacting to them at the last moment, especially:

    • showing hazard awareness and planning
    • making use of engine braking
    • stopping the engine when appropriate
