About this opportunity

The Joondalup RYDE Program is on the lookout for Volunteer Driving Mentors to support young people 16-25 years to complete their required 50 hours of supervised driving, in their journey to obtaining a driver’s licence.

Driver Mentors offer supervised driving hours, not lessons, together with valuable experience, skills, positive attitudes and develop confidence in navigating roads safely.
