CodeZero works towards making New Zealand a place where no one is killed or seriously injured in road crashes.
The "Average" Driver
Most serious and fatal crashes are caused by avoidable mistakes from normal, everyday drivers doing normal, everyday things. In other words, the "average" driver.
In no uncertain terms, the next generation of drivers are being trained by average drivers with limited time to teach, limited budget and limited access to professional drive training.
Teaching the road code and learning to pass a test is not the solution. Could learning the basics well save a life on New Zealand roads?
CodeZero creates a learner centric driving ecosystem
… that increases coaching abilities and doesn’t rely solely on learner motivation
"Train the trainer" with correct, quality guidance for parents and drive coaches
CodeZero App is designed with content to train parents and coaches to give correct, quality guidance to new drivers.
CodeZero encourages a structured, progressive, learner-centric approach to learning to drive, safely. CodeZero delivers a structured program on how to manipulate the vehicle, progress to identifying, planning for, and responding safely to hazards, both actual and potential. CodeZero provides a log book to record the recommended 120 hours practice, with weather conditions, road conditions and skills achieved. Watch the hours grow and ensure you cover a full range of environments for your new driver to master.
Mark-Revill JohnsonDuring Covid-19 lockdown, life took a pause. I was unable to operate Revs Motorcycle Training, a specialist training company where I teach students to ride safely and aim to provide a skill for life, not just tips on how to pass a test. It was time to dig those 'projects' out of the cobwebs. One of those projects was to be able to present content that I had written for Parents/Coaches/Instructors to give their students (in particular teens) structured, accurate information to give novice drivers the skills necessary to not just drive a car, but to do so safely. In 27 years of police experience I only ever attended one crash that was due to mechanical failure and even that could have been prevented if the driver had maintained their car. My qualifications include Qualified driving instructor in NZ – I endorsement holder NZTA approved course provider – Motorcycle basic handling skills and Competence Based Training and Assessment NZ Police Gold Class driver Chief examiner (Cars) Institute of Advanced motorists (NZ) NZTA approved course provider – I Endorsement course (AA Driving School) Previously qualified driving instructor in UK- ADI UK Police Class 1 Advanced driver Former examiner Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (UK) Former Chief observer, Sefton group, Institute of Advanced motorists (UK) Most importantly of all, I am a parent.
Joanne BurnsWith a teen heading into their driving career, Marks' vision for a tool to teach parents, many of whom had not looked at a Road Code since they studied for their driving test, hit a note with me. Working alongside Mark to engage branding designers, app developers, marketing strategists and focus groups has been an absolute pleasure. Design to build has been a fantastic journey, drawing on my IT, Project Management and just plain 'Mum' skills. We hope you find value in CodeZero, if our App, contributes to the prevention of a minor or a major driving incident, or even better, prevents a fatality, our CodeZero journey has been a success.
