Private Lessons Available

Please inquire about availability

In addition to regular classroom & behind-the-wheel classes, S.O.D.E. offers private, behind-the-wheel instruction for those ages 15 (with valid DMV permit) to adult. 

For individuals interested in obtaining new skills, defensive driver training or rebuilding skills after an illness or accident, our instructors provide one-on-one, intensive, personalized behind-the-wheel training in your own vehicle or a S.O.D.E. vehicle.  

Private lessons are $80/hour for a minimum of one hour and most lessons begin at the South Medford High School parking lot, near the tennis courts or SE corner of the campus.

S.O.D.E. instructors are available to pick students up from anywhere in the valley upon approval.  There is an additional hourly fee of $80 for pick up and drop off. 

A $20 deposit is requested at the time of scheduling.  The remaining payment in full is due upon completion of the private driving lesson and can be either in the form of cash or check made payable to S.O.D.E.  If you would prefer paying by debit/credit card, you can click the PayPal button below.


We frequently train individuals one-on-one from Vocational Rehabilitation, LOGOS Charter School, and the Department of Human Services (DHS) to ensure drivers are successful.  Call or email us to schedule your private drive today!
