Volvo Trucks Driver Training

Cut your costs with driver training

A driver training course, focusing specifically on fuel efficient driving, is available from Volvo Trucks. The long-term objective is to secure lasting reductions in fuel consumption of at least five per cent.

Tests have shown that transport companies can reduce their fuel costs by between five and ten per cent by training their drivers. Eco-driving is all about awareness and planning. By adopting a number of simple techniques, drivers can contribute to cutting both fuel costs and emissions, while also limiting their own stress and
body strain.

Eco-driving is adapted to modern engine technologies and results in efficient, safe driving at lower engine revolutions. The first rule is to anticipate the flow of traffic ahead and make better use of the energy of the actual truck. Driving smoothly and avoiding unnecessary acceleration and braking can noticeably enhance your fuel economy.
