ODEC Edge Classes


Young Life LogoHas your child ever wanted to learn to drive, only to be told that they are too young? Or maybe they don’t yet have their permit? Well those days are over! For the first time ever, ODEC is here with the chance for students to drive with our Early Driving Guided Experience (EDGE). While we cannot yet take students out on the main roads, we can provide them a safe environment, on a closed course, with professional training, and no permits required!

How EDGE works: Sign your 12-14-year-old student up online (height requirements of 4’ 10”). The week before the closed course, students will receive access to 1 hour of online training that will prep students for the main event. On the day of the event, students will meet at the Volcanoes Stadium in Keizer. The on-road course is 4 hours long, where students will get the chance to experience 8 different stations which include learning the basics of steering, turning, scanning, and so much more!

EDGE’s mission is to get students excited about driver education before they have their permit. And as an added bonus, every student that completes the EDGE program will receive $25 off of any ODOT approved course provided by ODEC!

Youth Edge driving class for WILD Life participants, friends and family between the ages 12-14 years old will be held by Oregon Driver Education Center on September 28th at volcano stadium from 9am.-2:30 p.m. End time may change depending on the number of students.


Sending caring adults into the world of high school and middle school kids, on their turf, to build lasting relationships.
