Driver Education & Vehicle Safety

Did you know every 7 seconds, someone is injured in a car crash? Or that every 15 minutes someone is killed?* LBCC has over 25 years of experience teaching Driver Education in Linn and Benton counties. Courses are approved by the Oregon Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Division and utilize their curriculum.

Register early to secure your spot, as space is limited. Scroll down for class offerings and schedules.

DMV Drive-Test Waiver

Possible waiver of DMV Behind-the-Wheel drive test - Specific requirements must be met in order to qualify and will be presented during the parent/student orientation. Note: students over the age of 18 do not qualify.

The State of Oregon has the following mandatory requirements:

  • Both student and parent/guardian participate in a 3-hour orientation class

IMPORTANT: You must read the Parent and Student Handbook before attending orientation.


Summer is going to look a little different than our traditional classes:

  • The classroom portion will be held interactive and virtually with two instructors per class.
  • Student and parents/guardians must attend the first scheduled virtual class together.
  • Students will be asked to hold up their permit so we can record seeing it. 
  • All classroom work will be held online with the REQUIRED driving to be scheduled when it is safe for students and instructors to be in the vehicle. 
  • Students must complete all course requirements in order to receive a certificate.
  • Students will be required to come to the Albany Campus to pick up their books and materials. Once a student is registered they will receive the dates and times that are available for contact free pick up.
