Holden Street Smart - Upcoming April School Holidays programme

Holden Street Smart is a world-class, cognitive based driver programme that aims to positively influence the lives of young kiwis across the country and help them to become a safer and more aware driver on our roads. 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.

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 environments, 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.

Holden Street Smart is a programme that equips young Kiwis with the tools needed to help be a safer and more aware driver on our roads.

Holden Street Smart will be delivering it’s programme throughout the upcoming April School Holidays, and while some dates are already full, locations we’ll be visiting along with space availability can be found at: www.holdenstreetsmart.co.nz
