List of ODOT Approved Driver Education Providers

SAVE MONEY! To enjoy the benefit of ODOT subsidy, a teen must complete the course before his 18th birthday AND before obtaining a license! Without subsidy, your course may cost $210 more!
WhyDriveWithEd is an effort to help the parent identify what driver education is and how it has changed, especially within the last 15 years. The information provided in an internet slideshow confronts stereotypes and incorrect assumptions about how novice drivers should learn to drive.
When you see the ODOT-Approved Why Drive With Ed.com seal, you can be confident the driver education provider displaying this seal has met all the stringent criteria to teach driver education courses in the State of Oregon. ODOT-Approved providers deliver courses that are standardized and evaluated by the Oregon Department of Transportation. If your teen completes one of these courses, they may go to the DMV with their driver education certificate of completion and proof of 50 hours of practice time to take their driving test. Teens who do not complete an ODOT-Approved course must show proof of 100 hours of practice time before they can take their drive test.
The goal of the Oregon Driver Education Program is to provide quality training that will result in more confident and safer young drivers. This, in turn, results in fewer crashes and fewer serious injuries and fatalities.
