Stuttgart driving schools launch EV-specific training

Supported by Daimler and independent driving school group ACADEMY, each will be given a Smart Fortwo Electric Drive and Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive plus a fast charging station at their headquarters.

Learners will be given their first lessons in an electric vehicle, removing the need to master gear changes early and allowing them to focus on the surrounding road conditions before moving on to a conventionally-powered car. The programme will also offer EV training for existing drivers.

All participants will undertake practical and theoretical training, receiving an eDriverLicence which enables those over 18 years old to use Daimler’s car2go car sharing service with a 100-minute free access token.
