The impact of driver behaviour on vehicle running cost

17 Apr 2018

Due to a lack of hard data, driver coaching and or training is often justified on gut feel alone or on ticking the ‘Health & Safety compliance’ box.

From our own day-to-day experiences, we know that the way people drive does directly affect running costs. What has been difficult to prove, beyond reasonable doubt, is what savings could be achieved by improving driver behaviour across the fleet.

This paper demonstrates that financial savings are directly linked to driver behaviour. It uses real-life driving data, often measured by telematics systems, to show that significant savings can be achieved. It also highlights the role that driver training and coaching can play in driving down costs by changing driver behaviour for the better.
