Eco-driver Training

By: South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust


A large amount of the CO2 the Trust releases results from our vehicle emissions. In the absence of any proven technology that will allow us to reduce these emissions we have put our own driving instructors through an external course which teaches the art of minimising emissions and maximising fuel economy while driving. Our instructors will pass these techniques on to all student drivers, ultimately this will create a more efficient and less polluting fleet.

At all Trust driver training venues

To reduce CO2 emissions, resource consumption and costs
