What are your instructor’s qualifications? And how have they been screened?     +

  • Oregon has very high standards for Traffic Safety Instructors. Driving school owners and instructors must pass a criminal background check and be certified by the DMV in order to teach adults. Additionally, instructors wishing to teach an ODOT-approved teen program must complete a series of Traffic Safety Education courses through Western Oregon University. Instructors must renew their certification yearly and complete a minimum 15 hours of continuing education every two years. All of Pacific Driver Education’s instructors meet, and, where possible, exceed, these criteria.
