Traffic Safety Education

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 the Traffic Safety Education 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, Transportation Safety Division.
