  • Driver Education Reduces Crashes and Saves Lives
    Motor vehicle crashes are the no.1 cause of death for 15- to 20-year-olds.  Teens who take formal driver training in Oregon have much lower crash rates.  Yet, only about one third of eligible Oregonians sign up for driving classes, saying they don't have the time, money, or easy access to them.  Teens who took an ODOT-approved driver education course have had fewer crashes, traffic convictions and suspensions.
  • DMV Drive Test Waivers
    Approved providers issue a course completion card that waives the Class C drive test at DMV for eligible students who are under 18 when they complete the course. The completion card is valid for a test waiver at DMV for two years after issuance. Please check with the driver education provider to see if you are eligible for a completion card that waives the DMV test.
