RED Driving School is beginning the process of moving to electric after hitting a record fleet size of more than 1,500 vehicles.

It has also taken steps to reduce its carbon emissions by investigating all aspects of zero-emission driving, including home, kerbside and ‘on-the-go’ charging, as well as introducing green energy tariffs for instructors.

Seb Goldin, chief executive, said: “Our fleet has reached a record size based on sound business growth. We’re the largest driving training company for a good reason – we have a reputation built on professionalism and commitment to customer care.

"Now that our fleet has reached this point and is likely to continue to grow, we are looking to have conversations with suppliers in the EV space about making RED greener.”
