To ensure the success of your student, we require that you utilize the entire 180 days to complete the in-car lessons. Practice between lessons is extremely important. Drives will extend beyond the last day of classroom instruction.

2020 classes will be held online through Zoom. Online classes will take place on the dates/times that you select during registration. You will be sent a link and instructions closer to class start time.

All Behind the wheel sessions are scheduled outside of class time. You will receive login credentials before the first day of class. If your class fills you have 48 hours to complete enrollment with payment and/or permit to reserve your spot.

ODOT Required Parent/Student Orientation:

In an effort to ensure the success of your student in our ODOT approved driver education program, please plan to attend the required parent/student orientation. Expectations, objectives, and procedures will be reviewed. It is also a time to gain clarification regarding new laws and driving techniques. If you are unable to attend your students scheduled parent orientation, you may choose one that will better fit your schedule.

While the driving portion of our ODOT approved program runs concurrently with the scheduled class time, all drives and observations are conducted outside of class and may be at a different location. Behind-the-Wheel lessons are set in 6 two hour blocks.
