2023 UFBA NATIONAL DRIVERS CHALLENGE RESULTS:

Drivers Challenge Logo

The Drivers Challenge is a fantastic annual event to test your drivers skills, while enjoying healthy competition and meeting other brigades members.

Proving yourself behind the wheel begins with a theory test followed by 11 individual exercises, in which drivers are judged on overall ability, efficiency, aptitude and smoothness of operation of fire appliances.

The exercises are designed to align with the Fire and Emergency skills manual and include bay and parallel parking, straight-line driving, lane changes, braking, estimating clearance, and negotiating serpentine and shrinking chicanes. 

If your Emergency Response Driver (ERD) certificate is about to expire, the pre-drive has been approved by Fire and Emergency to count as re-validation for brigade drivers.
