Driver Education

Drive

PCC's program provides teens and adults with classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction. The behind-the-wheel instruction and in-car observation are scheduled outside of the classroom times and will extend past the last day of class.

The Oregon DMV will waive the Drive Test for all teen students that successfully complete this ODOT approved Driver Education course. License will still be obtained through DMV. All other licensing requirements still apply.

Course Requirements:

  • Teens must be 15-17 years old to qualify for the ODOT teen program and complete the course before their 18th birthday.
  • Attendance at ALL sessions is mandatory.
  • Missed sessions must be made-up at an additional cost.
  • Mandatory parent/teen orientation is held at the first class session.
  • Must bring Oregon Instruction Permit and a photocopy of your permit to the first class.
  • Students should have a minimum of 10 hours of driving experience before beginning the class.
  • If you have previously completed an approved ODOT Driver Ed class then you are not eligible for the teen pricing and must register as an adult.
