Learn More About Our Educational Center

Southern Oregon Driver Education, Inc., is approved by the state’s Department of Transportation (ODOT) and certified by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).  We are fully licensed and meet all insurance requirements.  In addition to helping students prepare for their driver’s license test, we also provide defensive driving courses.  No matter what your personal goals are, you will come away from our educational coursework prepared for the open road soon after.

What Sets Us Apart

With nearly 30 years of driver education experience, we proudly teach both high school students and adults.  Our experienced team of instructors is passionate about keeping all students -- particularly young drivers -- accident-free.  As a result, we have developed state-of-the-art training techniques to provide a lifetime of safe driving skills.

Students ages 15-17 who complete S.O.D.E.'s classroom and behind-the-wheel training don’t have to take the DMV’s behind-the-wheel test to receive their license.  This exemption will save you time and money.  Financial assistance is available so that every student can enroll in one or more of our educational courses.  Visit our low-income scholarship page for more information.

Behind-the-wheel training is crucial for anyone learning how to drive, especially for first-time motorists eager to obtain their license.  Alternatively, even if you’re already a well-practiced, licensed driver, you can always better your technique.  That’s why we invite drivers of all skill levels to pursue defensive driving lessons with us.

Call us at 541-499-0132 or send us an e-mail to speak with one of our dedicated staff members to determine which of our programs would best serve your needs.  We'll be happy to provide you with answers to any of your questions.
