Driver training

DAF Driver Academy

The driver is key to achieve highest possible vehicle efficiency. DAF Driver Academy trainings help the driver to save fuel by anticipating even better on traffic situations. The result: lower operating cost and highest vehicle availability. DAF Academy training helps your driver to get the best out of your truck and save at least 3 to 5% of fuel!

Reduced fuel consumption


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
  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Improved vehicle reliability
  • Improved driver productivity
  • Improved health and safety of the driver and the environment.
  • Increased uptime

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. 


DAF Driver Academy - 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
