DAF EcoDrive Driver Training

A total transport solution
Because well-trained, professional drivers are more productive and reduce costs.


DAF Driver Academy

DAF’s EcoDrive Driver Training is all about improving driver performance – compliance, safety and efficiency – as well as meeting Driver CPC requirements. It means…

  • Reduced fuel consumption 
  • Improved vehicle reliability 
  • Improved driver productivity 
  • Improved health and safety 
  • Less downtime
A typical annual fuel bill for a 44 tonne truck is £60,000. An improvement of just 3% in fuel consumption alone means a saving of £1,800 – for every driver trained. And, with fuel prices set to rise still further, this is a bottom line business benefit that cannot be ignored.

Driver CPC training
A Driver CPC qualification is now required in addition to a vocational driving licence. This means at least 35 hours of approved Driver CPC training every 5 years for all professional drivers (periodic training).

Driver CPC training is aimed at improving road safety by providing better qualified drivers to help reduce road casualties. But there are added benefits too...

  • Lower accident rates 
  • Minimised repair and insurance costs 
  • Improved customer satisfaction 
  • ‘O’ licence protection 
  • Improved driver retention
Take advantage of the business benefits of driver training…

Our DAF EcoDrive Driver Training team have an in-depth understanding of how to get the best from our trucks and can provide professional drivers with Driver CPC approved and qualified training to support your operation.

With flexibility built in, each course can be tailored to suit individual driver and company specific objectives. Both in-class and in-cab training can be provided with minimum disruption to work schedules.
