A number of complaints about scooter and moped riders have prompted police to target them over the coming weeks.
The Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan says the vehicles are becoming increasingly popular but riders are displaying some bad habits.
He says officers will be focusing on Year 11 and 12 students in particular.
"We know that a number of them are probably not licensed or are riding on learners permits only so we want to respond to that," he said.
"My main focus though is to actually get to those kids and give them advice about wearing the proper gear and about riding their bikes safely because we're getting complaints about kids riding on footpaths and riding in parks.
"I think because there's such a big proliferation of cheap Chinese scooters now and everyone seemed to buy them we have to have some response.
"Probably from an educative perspective more than a punitive perspective but they will be charged or dealt with according to law if they're caught riding without a licence."
