EV Familiarisation

Fully subsidised electric vehicle and plug-in hybrid training available now!


Government training subsidies are now available!

For a limited time IAM RoadSmart and the Energy Saving Trust (EST) are combining their training subsidy offers to provide EV and plug-in hybrid vehicle training free of charge to all company car and van drivers including grey fleet, allowing you to extend the incentive to those who choose their own vehicle. Our EV Familiarisation course is designed to introduce drivers to EV instrumentation and driving characteristics, and to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to make optimal use of battery range, helping remove the barriers to adoption.
