Safe and Fuel-Efficient Driving New Zealand (SAFED NZ) is a comprehensive one-day, off-the-job driver development course. It teaches safe and fuel-efficient driving techniques through a combination of theoretical and practical exercises. It is generally delivered on a two-one ratio (two drivers with one instructor). There are two separate courses: one for truck drivers, and one for bus and coach drivers.
AVT can also conduct SAFED Instructor courses.
Applying safe and fuel-efficient driving techniques learnt through SAFED NZ can reduce fuel consumption by as much as 10 percent. Ongoing savings on repairs and maintenance are also achieved. This can make a big difference to the bottom line of your operation.
On completion of the course a certificate is issued by NZTA.
