SAFED (Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving) Courses

SAFED is a driver development course, consisting of assessment and training. Its prime purpose is to help drivers to save money on fuel and to drive safely.

We provide measurements of the fuel saved by every driver after they have completed the course.

The fuel consumption reduction alone represents a vast saving of money for your company on fuel per vehicle, depending on mileage.

SAFED courses should be included as part of your overall programme of commercial vehicle fleet efficiency management.


Course content

The SAFED course involves a mixture of classroom and on-the-road tuition.

It includes…

         The use of driving techniques

        Better use of gears (to avoid over-revving and unnecessary gear changes)

         Keeping correct distances (to avoid hard braking)

         An overall awareness of fuel economy and road layout.

         Safe and fuel efficient driving techniques

A SAFED Qualified Instructor will assess your company drivers’ performance both before and after the training.

Drivers who reach the SAFED standard will receive a certificate of achievement.


The SAFED course lasts for 1 day
