Driver Education Program (ages 15-22)

High School Driver Training

The Rogue Community College Driver Education Program provides teens with the opportunity to acquire the needed skills to be safe, competent drivers throughout their lives. We are committed to excellence both in the classroom and behind-the-wheel.

Our ODOT approved traffic safety course consists of 30 hours of classroom instruction and 12 hours in the car (6 hours behind-the-wheel and 6 hours of observation).

In-car instruction is scheduled between the student and the instructor, and occurs outside of the regularly scheduled class time. Please note that depending on student and instructor schedules, the final drive may not occur until after the last day of class.
