Driver Education Instructor Re-Certification

Re-Certification Process

Per OAR 737-015-0070(4), an instructor must be re-certified every two years.  To be eligible for renewal the instructor must submit a renewal application and provide documentation of the following:
a)  15 hours of continuing education
b)  30 hours of classroom and/or behind the wheel instruction from an ODOT approved program. Verification form here.
c)  Current first aid and CPR certification
In addition to your renewal application and providing the above documentation, WOU will run a criminal history check through the Oregon State Police as required by OAR 737-015-0070(3)(g).
To help you stay current on your certification, we will send a computer generated email to you 60 days prior to your certification expiration date.  If you take no action, we will send you a subsequent reminder at 30 days prior to expiration. 
The computer-generated email will include a link to the re-certification application and will allow you to upload your classroom verification and current first aid and CPR certification.  Additionally, the email will include a link that allows you to view the continuing education hours you’ve earned in the current certification cycle.  
Please see our Re-Certification FAQ’s if you have additional questions.
