LoCITY Driving

LoCITY Driving features classroom-based and e-learning modules to help drivers and transport managers save fuel and reduce the environmental impact of commercial vehicles.
The classroom-based module is a seven-hour, CPC-accredited course that focuses on minimising the environmental impact of vans and HGVs by reducing emissions through the use of pre-journey planning and vehicle checks, fuel-efficient driving, and alternative fuels.

The online modules reinforce key learnings across those topics, and give transport managers an overview of the range of alternative fuels available on the market.

Air quality and fuel efficiency
