Take our new electric pool cars for a spin

3 March 2020

Our new fleet of electric pool cars was launched at the Tacking Climate Change event today and will be available to book for journeys taking place from Monday 16 March onwards if you are travelling from County Hall and back.


Electric pool carIf you’d like to try out the cars and get familiar with driving and charging an electric vehicle you can book a test drive slot on either Monday 9, Wednesday 11 or Friday 13 March 2020.

You don’t have to be based at County Hall to use the cars, it may be more environmentally friendly to walk, cycle or drive your own vehicle to County Hall and then make an onward journey in an electric pool car.

Before you can use the cars you’ll need to register as a user with your driving licence and create a DVLA licence ‘check code’. You can either do this in person on one of the test drive days or through an online form which will be available from Monday 9 March 2020. You’ll then receive a briefing and be given access to the online booking system so you can start making use of the cars.

To book a test drive slot, please email gogreen.fleet@derbyshire.gov.uk stating your department and preference for day and either a morning or afternoon slot. You’ll need to bring your driving licence and a DVLA licence ‘check code’ with you so we can register you.

If you can’t make it on our test drive days but want to be able to use the cars, you can still register as a user online from 9 March 2020 and you’ll receive a short, informal briefing before being given access to the booking system.
