Event description

Description

As London grows, so does traffic congestion and air pollution. This has a major and damaging impact on public health. Nearly 9,500 people die early each year in London because of poor air quality.
LoCITY Driving features classroom-based modules to help drivers and transport managers save fuel and reduce the environmental impact of commercial vehicles.

The training will raise awareness of the environmental impact of emissions, fuel efficiency, cleaner vehicles and alternative fuel technologies. Commercial drivers have a greater responsibility than other driving licence holders because they are employed to drive. They are required to drive professionally, responsibly and with consideration for the environment and other road users.

The training also counts towards the 35 hours DCPC that professional drivers need to complete by September 2019.

Course Content
Subjects covered include:-

  • Air quality and fuel efficiency

  • How vehicle checks and maintenance can help to reduce emissions

  • Fuel-efficient driving techniques

  • The benefits of journey planning

  • How to use in-vehicle technology to improve driving performance

  • Alternative fuels in commercial vehicle fleets
