Ford Ranger FX4 Supports Street Smart Driver Training


  • Ford New Zealand providing new Ford Ranger FX4 to support innovative and effective hands on driver training program for young New Zealand drivers
  • Street Smart training tour begins 8 July in Taupo.

AUCKLAND, 3 July 2020 – Ford New Zealand is proud to support the innovative and proven young driver training program Street Smart with a brand new Ford Ranger FX4 4WD that will provide the needed towing power for the event’s country-wide tour. The Street Smart tour begins on the 8th of July in Taupo.  

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.

Street Smart 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.
