Drive Test Terms and Conditions

We now offer the OREGON DMV DRIVE TEST.

NW Drivers Ed is constantly working to serve the needs of our community.  As a 3rd Party Drive Testing Business, we now offer the Oregon DMV Drive Test, which may be required to obtain your Class C Drivers License. By booking your Drive Test with us we are typically able to offer appointments sooner than the DMV.  Drive Tests are conducted using our cars, so you don’t need to try to arrange to have one on test day. Our examiners have been trained by ODOT and are also certified driving instructors.

Please note:
Due to a recent process change within the DMV, we must verify your eligibility prior to your drive test. PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT, we must have your DMV customer number and date of birth in order to verify your eligibility to test with our company. If you have a restriction on your driving privileges and are obtaining a reinstatement, we recommend scheduling your drive test for at least 1 day after the reinstatement has gone into effect as it may cause an issue when reporting your results. If you require the use of your car, due to modifications or the use of an Ignition Interlock Device, we will not be able to administer your test as we only use our company cars for testing. Please contact another testing facility to see if they offer an option to test in your own vehicle.

By scheduling an appointment or paying for the service same day, you are agreeing to our TERMS & CONDITIONS. Please take time to review our TERMS & CONDITIONS / FAQs below:

APPOINTMENTS
We require you to arrive 10 minutes early to your Drive Test appointment, prepared and with the necessary documentation, corrective lenses if required, a face mask or covering (due to COVID-19), and close toed shoes. If you are late, or otherwise unprepared, it will be treated as if you did not appear for your appointment. The No Show Policy will apply and no refund will be issued.

We may have same day appointments. You must call ahead to confirm.

During your drive test only you, the examiner, and on occasion, an authorized manager or ODOT representative may be allowed in the vehicle. No interpreters, family, friends, or animals are permitted. If you require the presence of an animal or an interpreter we are unable to provide the testing service to you. We recommend contacting the DMV to discuss your options. If you arrive for an appointment and are unable to test due to this condition or any others no refund will be issued.
