During the school year classes are held either twice a week for two hours each or once a week for three hours each.
Students will meet an additional 6 times for their behind the wheel and in car observations, for a total of 12 hours of vehicle instruction. Driving sessions are scheduled outside of class times and may extend beyond the last class session before completion.
The course consists of the following:
- 32-34 hours of classroom instruction depending on location
- 6 hours of behind the wheel
- 6 hours observation (activity done in back seat while other student drives)
There is a mandatory parent meeting held the first day of class. The meeting is attended by both the parent, legal guardian, or supervising adult and the student. The meeting is held for the first class session and covers policies, procedures, curriculum, traffic safety
information and gives the opportunity for any questions regarding the program to be covered.
Students that are licensed, turn 18 prior to completion of the program or receive their license before completion of the program do not qualify for the lower tuition fee. These students will be charged the full tuition fee. For the tuition fee for your school program contact the Oregon Driver Training Institute office.
