Welcome to Traffic Safety Education

The Traffic Safety Education program provides the required training to be an ODOT-TSD approved Driver Education instructor in Oregon. Individuals wishing to teach Driver Education in Oregon will gain a wealth of practical knowledge, as well as gain hands-on experience, both in the classroom and in the vehicle. Upon completion of each course, participants will receive a certificate that can be presented to potential employers to verify certification.


These classes are part of a non-credit program funded by Oregon Department of Transportation.


Earning College Credit

Academic credit is available for participants for an additional fee of $200 per course. Each course is worth four credits at either the undergraduate or graduate-level. Students registered for graduate-level credit must complete an additional project within six weeks of course completion. Participants must register and pay for academic credits before the last class meeting.
