The RYDA Experience

RYDA is essential road safety education for young drivers and their passengers.  It’s also a great day out of the school classroom for students to collaborate with their friends, work on personal strategies and get tips from road safety experts. This video shows a RYDA day from the student’s perspective.  It’s an excellent way to introduce RYDA to students and parents and give them a feel for what the program’s all about.

Testimonials

The RYDA sessions are designed to use a variety of delivery techniques, including powerful videos, group work, role plays, demonstrations and deeply personal stories from crash survivors. We recognise that everybody learns differently so RYDA’s varied approach aims to resonate personally with every student and help each person develop their individual road safety strategy.

That’s why, when we ask students to tell us what their favourite session was and why, we get an equally varied mix of responses. This flyer collates student feedback on each of the sessions.  For further testimonials from teachers, parents, students and road safety experts, please see our testimonials page.
