What is SAFED?


SAFED is a complementary driver development course, consisting of assessment and training. It intends to improve the safe and fuel efficient driving skills of LCV drivers. It therefore should complement a much broader programme of commercial vehicle fleet efficiency management.

The one-day SAFED course involves a mixture of classroom and on-the-road tuition and teaches the use of driving techniques such as better use of gears to avoid over-revving and unnecessary gear changes, keeping correct distances to avoid hard braking, and an overall awareness of fuel economy and road layout.

The fuel consumption reduction alone represents a vast savings of money for your company of fuel per vehicle, depending on mileage.?Drivers in businesses big or small using their own van qualify for free training. A small contribution applies to others. The contributions will be reinvested into training more drivers.

A SAFED Qualified Instructor will assess your company drivers performance both before and after the training. Driving sessions will be used to put safe and fuel efficient driving techniques into practice. Drivers who reach the SAFED standard will receive a certificate of achievement.
