RYDE Program

The Town of Bassendean, through the Bassendean Youth Services is a RYDE Provider.


The RYDE Program provides young people the opportunity to complete their 50 hours of supervised driving experience with a volunteer Driving Mentor.

Many young people find it difficult to complete the 50 hours of driving experience now required for a Western Australian Driver’s Licence. This might be because they haven’t got access to an appropriate vehicle, or a qualified person to spend all of those hours in the passenger seat. The RYDE program will connect Learner Drivers with a volunteer Mentor and automatic vehicle, so that they can get their Licence and all of the opportunities that come with it.

If you want to use this service contact Bassendean Youth Services on 9279 2329 or drop in to the Youth Centre and speak to one of the staff.
