Yes, more than one adult may be involved in providing supervised driving practice. It
is important, though, that all adult supervisors give consistent (not contradictory)
direction to the student.
The best way to document home driving practice to fulfill the 300 minutes required for
the Driver Education class is to use the Chemeketa Community College Driver Education
– Student Driving Log. Use this form to document all student practice driving from the
first day of class until the student’s last drive with the instructor. Remember, Behind-the-
Wheel sessions with the instructor are not to be included in the 300 minutes. To
document student driving practice time for DMV, use the form found in

If a student between the ages of 15 and 17 takes and successfully completes our program,
then the certificate issued at the end of the course will waive the DMV drive test.
We do not conduct or do the DMV drive test. When a student completes our program DMV is
recognizing that the drive section that they pass with our program meets or exceed their
standards of a drive test.
Students who are 18 and older will still need to complete a drive test at DMV after
completion of our program.
The state provides a subsidy for students between the ages of 15 and 17 that allows us
to keep the cost lower.
There is a $75 State subsidy program making the cost $205 for applicants that qualify for
the Free and Reduced lunch program and/or the SNAP or TANF programs. Show eligibility
letter from the school district, from SNAP or from TANF. Home school students can qualify
through the school district they are in.
(This benefit applies only to students under 18 years of age and without a license.)
If you turn 18 during the class, this is typically noticed by the office at the time of
registration and you will be charged the cost of an adult student ($500).
If you obtain your license before completion of the course, you will be charged a $220 fee.
This happens because the state does not provide reimbursement for licensed drivers.
This fee is the additional cost to our program that is added to the student’s account.
Payment is due by the process date that is noted on the website and coversheet of the
application. If there is no date posted, then payment is due at the time of registration.
In order to register for our class, you will need to complete an application form that can
be found on our website and submit to the driver education office.
Once your application is received and reviewed a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the
e-mail address provided on the application form. Please make sure the person who is needed
the information regarding the course provides an e-mail address that is accessible.
A certificate of completion will be mailed to the mailing address provided on the application
from approximately 2-3 weeks after the student has completed the program.
The certificate of completion issue to teen drives that will waive the DMV drive test is good
for 2 years from the issue date for the purpose of the waiving the DMV drive test. It is
good “forever” for insurance purposes.
It is okay to take our program before you are eligible for a license. Once you complete the
program the certificate is good for 2 years. Once you are eligible to get your license,
you can still use the certificate of completion/waiver to get the DMV drive test waived.
