Southern Oregon Driver Education, Inc.

Peace of Mind!

Private Lessons
Catered to you!

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. 

Our instructors provide one-on-one, intensive, personalized behind-the-wheel training for individuals interested in obtaining new skills or rebuilding skills after an illness or accident. We encourage a family memeber who is a licensed driver** to ride along in the vehicle so that they can reinforce the skills that the student is learning form our instructors and then practice those skills which will reinforce the required skills. ** An adult driver must be at least 21 y.o. and have had their license for 3 years.

Vocational REHABILITATION, LOGOS Charter School & DHS

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.  Private lessons will allow one of our certified driver education instructors to focus on the foundational driving habits that you need for a lifetime of good driving.
