Driver test? What driver test?

There are a ton of great reasons to enroll in driver ed classes, but the best one is, if you complete the course, that means you don’t have to take the Oregon DMV driver test to get your license! That’s right – you’re essentially excused from one of teen life’s most nerve-wracking rites of passage!

Here’s how it works:

  • You need to have had an instruction permit for at least 6 months.
  • You enroll in and successfully complete an ODOT-approved driver ed course before your 18th Birthday.
  • You can certify that you have at least 50 hours of driving experience with a driver who is older than 21 and has had driving privileges for at least three years.
  • You have to pass the written safe driving practices test at the Oregon DMV.

Upon completion of an ODOT-approved driver ed course, your provider will issue a card certifying that you successfully met all class requirements. When you present this card at the Oregon DMV while applying for a Provisional Driver License, the skills test is waived.

That’s it! No more sleepless nights, no more dudes with clipboards – just a shiny new license to drive. See you in class!
