The benefits of training on EV and HPEV cars and vans for fleet drivers
Training in electric vehicles (EVs) or plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) can be vital for drivers who are new to the idea of driving EVs and PHEVs and are used to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine, Petrol or Diesel).
The EV and PHEV Training includes an introduction to the vehicle’s controls, modes and displays. Plus, if applicable, how to vary the level of regenerative braking and an explanation of any eco or energy saving modes such as those that limit acceleration, top speed, or use of ancillary power.
What we cover in our advanced driving lessons UK training :
Rules of the road
The Limit Point (advanced)

EV and PHEV courses Information
E EVOur trainers will help you understand the requirements and the duty of care for your employees and the public and comply with your legal and ethical obligations.
You might be wondering why you should invest in this training.
For PHEVs, the discussion of modes includes an explanation of when the vehicle uses only electric, only ICE or hybrid power, and the fact that financial and environmental benefits will only be achieved when PHEVs are regularly plugged-in.
We look at how to charge the vehicle, with a practical demonstration and discussion of different charging options if possible.
Each driver must drive two circuits of an identical route on public roads, the first in his normal driving style and the second whilst being coached and adopting eco driving or range-extending driving techniques.
