Free driver education and support to businesses in South Yorkshire.

Welcome

Eco-Business Driving aims to help your small to medium enterprise (SME), larger company or organisation save money, improve safety and reduce environmental impacts!

Ever wondered why your fuel bills are so high?

Modern vehicle engines can now deliver fuel consumption figures that would have only been dreamed about a few years ago.  Many companies never see this return on their investment as their drivers' skills and knowledge need to be developed to maximise the potential benefits these vehicles offer. 

Maintenance fees too high?

These new driving techniques will not only reduce your fuel costs but also your maintenance costs too, by reducing the wear and tear on tyres, brakes, steering and suspension components.

Free training and assistance

Often these courses are expensive, but the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, through government funding (Local Sustainable Transport Fund), would like to offer South Yorkshire SME's, larger companies or organisations a free training and support package.
