Students under the age of 18 and in the ODOT-approved program will need to take the both the classroom and BTW prior to licensure unless a parent supervises driving for an additional 50 hours (100 hours total). Teen classes are ODOT approved and geared for 15- to 17-year-olds with a permit. They include classroom instruction as well as drive lessons.
The private lessons are one-on-one driving lessons that can be geared toward individual learning as opposed to a curriculum.
ODEC is in the business of providing a service, namely the service of providing training and knowledge. Knowledge is a non-material commodity that cannot be returned or exchanged; therefore, we cannot refund money for services already provided.
If a student cancels a lesson with at least 48 hours’ notice, the lesson can be rescheduled.
If a student cancels a lesson with less than 48-hour notice, has no permit, is a no show, or is otherwise unable to conduct the scheduled lesson then a $75 fee will be assessed. Lessons canceled within 4 hours of the scheduled time are considered no shows. The reschedule fee is $150.00.
