Driver Education Instructor Certification



ODOT-Transportation Safety Division has contracted with Western Oregon University to issue certificates to qualified Driver Education instructors. This certificate will demonstrate to your employer and anyone else who is interested that you are certified to teach in an approved driver education program.

Effective December 1, 2012, all instructors teaching in an ODOT-TSD approved program must hold a certification card from ODOT/WOU.
