Earlier this year we officially launched the Holden Street Smart road safety programme, a hands-on driver-skills programme that aims to equip young kiwis with the knowledge and skills to safely navigate our roads.
Holden Street Smart is a world-class, cognitive based driver programme that aims to positively influence the lives of young kiwis across the country. The Programme has been developed with the involvement of world-renowned road safety expert, Peter Sheppard. In addition, passionate road safety advocate, Greg Murphy, is our Programme Ambassador.
Offering a practical hands-on learning experience, Holden Street Smart is a programme that aims to add to, and compliment, the great work already undertaken by NZTA, NZ Police and others in the area of road safety and driving training.
Holden Street Smart is a one-day event providing young drivers and their parents/caregivers the opportunity to undertake supervised driving practice. There is a focus on developing good decision-making strategies for safe driving, including assessing themselves, reading the road environment, resisting peer pressure, managing or eliminating distractions and planning ahead.
The Programme takes place in safe, controlled, off-the-road environment, under the watchful eye of qualified coaches plus the parent/caregiver. This provides the parent the opportunity to also assess themselves, in order to be a better coach and mentor to their teen.
Our previous school holiday deliveries have proved very successful with over 400 young drivers plus their caregivers going through the programme. The response has been overwhelmingly positive with 96% leaving with a better idea on how to improve their driving and 99% who would highly recommend the programme to others.
Here is an introductory video.
