DVSA Update: Changes to assessing fuel efficient driving in ADI part 2 tests

Changes to assessing fuel efficient driving in ADI part 2 tests

From 19 April, fuel efficient driving will become a driving fault instead of being an educational assessment on ADI part 2 tests.

The change is being brought in to encourage new ADIs to learn the skills they need to help teach new drivers the skills to drive with economy and the environment in mind.

Learning to teach fuel efficient driving techniques

It’s important that you talk to you trainer about teaching fuel efficient driving ahead of your part 2 test, which covers areas such as:

  • planning well ahead to avoid unnecessary stopping
  • select appropriate gears
  • avoiding harsh us of the controls
  • avoiding over-revving the engine

You can also find more tips for fuel efficient driving in our official resources available from the Safe Driving for Life website. You can also find tips for efficient driving from the Energy Saving Trust.

The guidance for ADI part 2 test will be updated to reflect the change from 19 April 2022
