Subsidised Ecodriver Training

There are many smart and safe techniques which drivers can use to significantly reduce their fuel costs; one of the best ways to learn these techniques is to participate in a One Hour Ecodriving driver training course. All training is given by suitably qualified driver instructors, and these courses have a proven record in helping to achieve considerable savings. Bill Plant Ltd has been appointed by the Energy Saving Trust to carry out this training programme on their behalf.

The Subsidised Ecodriving Training scheme benefits from a grant via the Department for Transport and will run until 31 March 2017. There are 8,500 drivers training places available during the current financial year

The key benefits of Ecodriving include:

  • 15% reduction in fuel consumption
  • 15% reduction in CO2

The scheme is open to drivers of cars and vans (not exceeding 3,500kg) with either a manual or automatic transmission. It is also open to private individuals.

Each training session is £20 (incl subsidy) plus vat and lasts 1 hour

The training course costs are all tax deductable

Please note:

  • The Scheme only operates in England
  • Training must take place in England
  • Training is not available to private individuals.
