About the UFBA National Drivers Challenge

The Drivers Challenge is a fantastic annual event to test your drivers skills in a competitive environment, have some fun and meet other brigades and firefighters.

It's made up of a theory test and 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 New Zealand Fire Service 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 certificate is about to expire, the pre-drive has been approved by the New Zealand Fire Service to count as re-validation for brigade drivers.
