Ford South Africa Announces Driving Skills For Life — Safe And Fuel-Efficient Driving

The Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa has launched a brand new driving programme called Driving Skills for Life, or DSFL. The campaign is aimed at promoting Eco Driving while ‘tackling the country’s poor road safety record’. It was said that DSFL is the first programme for South Africa where environmental concerns have been put on an equal footing with safety and performance driving.

Courses for the programme include classroom and practical training to help awareness of safe driving techniques, bettering your fuel efficiency, and minimizing the spread of CO2 emissions. FMCSA said that they will release the course to dealers and employees before the general public will be able to undergo training.

“The driving programmes generally available in South Africa are either directly meant to promote the performance of a specific vehicle brand, or fall short to promote fuel efficient and Eco driving in the tough conditions that exist on our roads,” explains Jeff Nemeth, FMCSA president and CEO.

“What sets DSFL apart is that it is applicable to all South African drivers, no matter their age or the type of car they drive, and has the three benefits of safety, fuel efficiency and environmentally conscious driving – the latter of which has been overlooked in South Africa for way too long.”
