Classes in Portland that help people travel safely include:

Oregon Friendly Driver Program

The Oregon Friendly Driver program is a free 90-minute interactive class aimed at educating people on the best and safest ways to share the road when driving. 

Driver education for immigrants and refugees

No course dates are available at this time

In addition to standard course offerings, education training has been available for new immigrants, refugees and English language learners over the age of 18.

On completion of course, there may be opportunities for lower auto insurance rates from participating carriers, and driver license behind-the-wheel testing through ODEC rather than the DMV. A limited number of vouchers for driver license test fees are available.

This program is a partnership of the Portland Police Bureau, the Portland Bureau of Transportation, the Oregon Driver Education Center (ODEC), Oregon Impact and ODOT.

Supported by the Portland Police Bureau, with funding provided through grants from the East Portland Action Plan 2015 Municipal Partnership Project, a City of Portland Municipal Grant, and State Farm Insurance.
