Changes To The Part 2 Test Marking
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.
Teaching your pupils about fuel efficient driving
You can find out more about the aspects of fuel efficient driving on GOV.UK which include:
• 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
