Instruction

  • we emphasise economical and ecological driving techniques in all stages of instruction
  • we continuously strive to identify ways for us as a company to reduce our environmental burden and to improve road safety

Simulators

  • we use simulators in driving instruction and engage in the further development of their use. To date, our simulators have been used to complete about 2,500,000 km of driving, which has helped to reduce fuel consumption by about 200,000 litres, translating into a 470,000 kg reduction in carbon dioxide emissions! Simulator training is a green choice!
