RYDA Programme

RYDA Programme

The Rotary Youth Driver Awareness Programme is in partnership with Rotary, Road Safety Education, Safer Journeys, Wairarapa Road Safety Council.

This year we almost doubled our number is our fourth year providing a successful program focusing on Year 12 Students across Wairarapa during March. With nearly 600 Students in attendance over the 2-day event held at the Solway Showgrounds in Masterton, students we able to take part in 6 workshops;

  • Putting the 'I' in Drive
  • Hazards, Distractions & Risks
  • Speed & Stopping Distances
  • Road Choices
  • Genevieves Story
  • Crash Survivor


Each facilitator was experienced in their field providing safer road choices and inspiration to students wanting to take the next step in their journey of their future driving careers. This program is set to run again in 2017.
