Saving the World ... One Gallon At a Time

Our Eco-Friendly Driving School Cars

The need for more environmentally friendly vehicles is a genuine concern for today's driving community, especially with the amount of pollution created by standard vehicles on the road. This problem is particularly magnified when it comes to driving schools that have a large fleet of driver training vehicles running continuously for 14 hours daily. Putting 1000+ miles on our roadways every day, finding an eco-conscious driver training solution should be a goal of every driving school. At Drivers Ed Direct, we've put these ideals to the test by operating a fleet comprised entirely of hybrid vehicles, including Toyota Prius hybrids and hybrid SUVs.

To see the overwhelmingly positive impact made by a driving school utilizing hybrid technology, read below:
