The allure of electric cars is obvious. They save individuals money and help avoid lengthy queues as petrol stations, allowing people to charge their cars when they are not in use rather than find they have to constantly go out of their way to refuel.
Of course, the real winner of the rise in electric motoring and the projections that many motorists will soon be changing to an electric car will be the environment: with zero emissions, electric cars are going to make motoring a very green pastime indeed.
However, many individuals will have very little idea of how to drive an electric car or how they work at all and, as such, driving schools have started to introduce a few electric cars into their fleet. For any driving instructor or driving school, not only will investment in an electric car ensure that the business saves a great deal of money on motoring costs over the course of the year, or can simply charge their customers less to learn to drive, but the unique ability to drive such a car will mean that those schools with electric cars simply get a great deal more business.
It will be important to ensure that your driving school insurance covers you for teaching in electric vehicles before you make the change, and you may even find that you are actually able to save money on your insurance by making the change to an electric motor.
Passing a test in an automatic electric vehicle is also likely to be far easier for pupils, making it even more appealing for those who wish to get to grips with driving quicker, and with many electric cars set to hit the market over the next decade it is also unlikely to limit their driving scope in the long run.
By changing your ADI policy to the most competitive policy for electric cars and by offering the chance for pupils to learn in such a car you will no doubt save money, increase interest in your driving school and be a great deal more environmentally friendly all at the very same time.
