Section 1: Admissions

a. The first step for a beginning driver is to acquire the instruction (learner's) permit from the DMV.  Once the beginning driver has acquired their permit then a class can be scheduled. 

Section 2: Registration & Fees

a. Below you will find registration forms to sign up for S.O.D.E. driving instruction classes.  You can select from the 15-17 year old registration or Adults 18+.  Students, please select the correct form, select the desired CLASS in the box, and complete all requested information.

All classes include a total of 42 hours of driver training/education or 30 classroom hours and  12 hours in the vehicle.  Typically, there are two students and an instructor in vehicles for behind-the- wheel instruction.  All class fees need to be paid on or before the mandatory Parent Participation / Information meeting.  Payment plans may be arranged by contacting S.O.D.E directly.

Section 3: Refunds & Policies

a. Students who registered as a 15-17 y.o. and turn 18 y.o. prior to completing their final written exam and their 6th and final drive, will incur a fee of $210

b. Parents or guardians agree to pay a fee of $210 if a student (15-17 years old) obtains their license on their own prior to the completion of all classes and behind the wheel drive lessons. 

c. If students do not attend a drive and do not notify instructors within 24 hours of their scheduled drive there will be a $25 cancellation fee.


d. Students who require a driving lesson beyond the six drives included in the course will need to pay $80/hour for each required lesson. 

e. S.O.D.E. provides auto insurance coverage for students while driving in education vehicles only. Student is required to drive at least 5 additional hours outside of class with a parent/guardian who has insurance coverage on his/her personal vehicle.

f. If student withdraws before the 2nd consecutive class in the session, the class fee is 100% refundable.  Refunds will not be granted for "dropping" the class after the 2nd consecutive class, suspension, expulsion, or failing the class for any reason.

g. We respect the 180 days ODOT gives for a student to complete the State approved driver education courses in Oregon.  However, unless other arrangements are made at the time of registration, S.O.D.E. requires all students who register for a session to complete the course work for that session by the time the subsequent session (following the original session the student was registered for) is completed. In addition, any 15-17 year old student is required to pass their drive assessment within 30 days after their 6th and final drive behind-the-wheel. If there is a need for a drive assessment after the 30 day period, there will be a $40 charge for each additional drive assessment needed. This policy is effective immediately for current and future registered students.

Section 4: Keys to Teaching the Skills of Driving
