Ford Support for Street Smart Driver Training
With Holden’s demise, Ford New Zealand is now providing some support for the Street Smart driver trainer program.
Ford will supply the training provider with a Ford Ranger FX4 and with it the means to tow all the equipment needed for the country-wide road show event.
Street Smart is a world-class, cognitive-based driver programme that aims to positively influence the lives of young kiwis across the country. A one-day event, Street Smart offers practical hands-on learning experiences and provides young drivers and their parents or caregivers the opportunity to undertake supervised driving practice.
It has a focus on developing good decision-making strategies for safe driving, including assessment, reading the road environment, resisting peer pressure, managing or eliminating distractions and planning ahead.
Street Smart 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.
