Drivers Ed


Together, we want to produce safe and responsible drivers who are capable of driving collision-free for a lifetime!

This program is for students who do not have a driver's license.  Because students who have a license are NOT qualified for state subsidy, they will be assessed $210 (in addition to the $170 registration fee) should they choose to participate.  Failing the driver's education course may result in additional fees and class time.

**If a student obtains their driver's license before completion of the class, the total fee of $380 must be paid before a certificate can be awarded**


Under a new program from DMV and ODOT, Roseburg Driver's Ed students who successfully complete our ODOT approved driver's education program will NOT have to take their drive skill test at the DMV.  They will, however, need to take the 20 question knowledge test at the DMV.

******************18 YEAR OLDS******************

The above drive test does NOT apply if your student is 18 YEARS OLD!  The DMV and ODOT still require your 18 year old to take their drive skill test AND 20 question knowledge test AT THE DMV.
