  • 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.
  • Driver Education Division 15 OARs
    The Oregon Administrative Rules for Division 15 (Driver Education) have been modified to accommodate the new law that was signed into effect in May 2013. The rules affect every provider, instructor, school and potential student in the driver education community. Read the OAR text
  • Two New Forms for Providers

    Providers!  There are two new forms for you online in the Provider Resources section (under Forms).  The Reimbursement form is much simpler than its predecessor and does not require a physical signature or mailing a hard copy to Transportation Safety.  Be sure to fill out all the fields before hitting "submit" because it goes right to the ODOTDEMail@odot.state.or.us mailbox for processing!  The Assurance form is the other form and it works the same way.   J
