Drivers Ed in Oregon
Completion of a Oregon Drivers Ed course is suggested and often required prior to obtaining your learner's permit, and ultimately receiving your Driver's License. Although not approved for the state of Oregon, I Drive Safely is a good course to prepare yourself for your state's licensing exam.
You can't become a safe, competent driver without at least a little bit of education. In fact, unless you're married or an emancipated minor, school is required for teens to get licensed in Oregon. First-time teen license applicants must show proof of school enrollment, completion, or exemption.
You must also complete either additional 50 hours of supervised driving practice, certified by parent or guardian or the completion of a safety education course from an ODOT-approved provider. Public schools and other providers are listed online by county. Make sure the program is approved by the Oregon Department of Education before you enroll.
Drivers in training may also find a practice test available online.
