Each 90 minute driving session costs the Learner Driver an administration fee.
Learner Drivers are required to pay a small administrative fee of $15 per 90 minute session. This fee must be paid during the online booking process. The RYDE program accepts payments via PayPal, Credit/Debit card, or through special arrangements with their RYDE Provider.
The administrative fee is set so as to generally not present a barrier to participation in the Program, while allowing RYDE to recover some of its costs such as fuel, maintenance and insurance. This fee seeks to aid and demonstrate the sustainability of the Program model, as well as placing a ‘value’ on the volunteer and in kind contributions involved in its operation.
