RYDE program

The City has launched its Regional Youth Driver Education (RYDE) program.

RYDE helps young people (16-25) in the northern corridor take significant steps towards obtaining their driver’s licence, connecting them with trained volunteer driver mentors to complete the required 50 hours of supervised driving experience.

Available seven days a week, the program operates from Joondalup Library with an easy-to-use online booking platform and an affordable fee of $15 for a 90-minute driving session.
