Holden Street Smart - Road Safety Programme

Holden Street Smart is a hands-on driver-skills programme that equips young Kiwis with the tools needed to safely drive our roads, well prepared and confident. 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.

This is a one-day event providing young drivers and their parents/caregivers the opportunity to undertake supervised driving practice. 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 will be delivering it’s programme in the Manawatu on Thursday 6 December at Manfeild Park in Feilding. Registrations are open for $49 at www.holdenstreetsmart.co.nz
