Our Green Credentials

We commit to being an entirely carbon neutral driving school, offering ‘Green’ lessons to our students. We wholly appreciate that driving a car (and therefore learning to drive) is a carbon intensive process, along with the manufacture of the car and its components. Therefore, we will offset our driving school carbon usage, inflated to cover other non driving school journeys, home office usage and the other cars in our household. For the time period July 2019 to July 2020, our total driving carbon footprint is 6 tonnes, which we have inflated to 8 tonnes to cover the non driving usage, and we have offset this via VCS certified carbon reduction programmes across the world.

We put emphasis on eco driving, basic maintenance and manufacturer specific economy drivers. We discuss fuel economy, and the environmental impact that this effects. In summary, we challenge our students to understand their environmental impact from driving, and how they can combat this effectively.

Thank you to our friend Richard Bates and his carbon neutral driving school Inclusive Driving for the support in making this happen!

We are proud to be the only carbon neutral driving school in the North of England*

*Our claim to be the only carbon neutral driving school was fact-checked on July 12th, 2020, substantiated by a Google search of North, North West and Southport Driving Schools including the terms “carbon zero” and “carbon neutral” and “climate positive”. Email for full details.
