Best Program in Oregon 9/2/2011

I initially signed up for the insurance discount. I came to realize just how important this training is and how wonderful this particular program is. My son learned more about driving safely than I knew as a driver with 20 years of experience. I believe this program will save more lives than anything else you could invest in for your child. It should be required in the state of Oregon. more

Invaluable classroom and on-road training 11/22/2010

I'm guessing that the one bad review here was written by a teen who clearly didn't like having to take driver's ed. Yes, it's a time-commitment and you have to map it out on your calendar so you don't miss a lesson & have to make it up later, but that's to be expected. Life, as they say, is all about showing up on time. The program is thorough, and even though it's a tad repetitive, new learners benefit from hearing things more than once! The every other week on-road driving time was the highlight--my teen saw the benefit of that and looked forward to it. I can tell her driving skills improved, and of course got even better as we put in the many hours of road time with her at the wheel. I recommend this program to everyone who wants to get their license (at any age, but especially the under 18 set) in Oregon. In fact, my teenager pointed out some rules that I didn't know, and I've become a better, more aware driver in the process. Don't risk letting your teen "wing it"--sign him or her up for this course as soon as your teen is ready to drive. more

Great Driver Ed 12/3/2009

I liked the in depth subject matter. I was impressed with the trauma nurses presentations to both parents and teens. All and all, the course made my daughter think more about the dangers, privileges and seriousness of driving an automobile. Pros: Having others tell her the same information that we parents more

Horrible Drivers Ed Experience 1/21/2009

I wasn't expecting much from driver's education. Most of my peers had already told me that it was pretty much a big waste of time, but I figured that I might as well get it over with even if it was mostly common sense. I thought maybe at least I could learn a few helpful tricks here or there. I was so wrong. The classes were just like everyone had described to me, pointless. Three hour sessions that were filled beginning to end with PowerPoint slideshows that, after the first class, would just keep on regurgitating the same information for the remainder of the classes. I've been told my writing is repetitive but no one knows repetitive until they've had to stay awake through 33 hours of this nonsense. To make it even more painful the instructor was flat out rude. All students were treated as inferiors and on top of that it felt like the instructor had as little desire to be there as we did. One other thing that we found out recently is that there is an additional $210 fee that you are contractually obligated to pay if the class is not 100% completed within 90 days of the beginning of the session. This means that if there are ANY missing class hours, in seat driving hours, or homework sheets they have the right to charge you for an additional 90 days no matter how little or much makeup you have to do. The classes that I was in were on Saturdays so only other Saturday lessons were available to me if I needed makeup time. This means that of the 90 days that were originally allotted 77 were taken up by regular class time (one class a week for eleven weeks) which leaves a mere two more Saturdays to make up any missing work. I don't know about anyone else but to me it sounds like your schedule has to coincide with theirs fairly well for this to work out. Overall this has added up to me paying considerably more than expected for a subpar instructional course with the only benefit being the reduced 50 hour driving requirement for getting an Oregon license. more
