When you register, you are paying for a reserved seat in a course. Registrations are limited. If you need to cancel your course or reschedule, you must do so at least three days before the course begins to be eligible for a refund. If you need to cancel or reschedule, use our online cancelation form.
Courses run rain or shine. Plan to arrive on time, regardless of the weather forecast or conditions at home. Team Oregon will notify students if a course is cancelled. Students who arrive late or leave early lose their reservation and payment.
It depends on your age, experience, skill level and endorsement status. Try our course comparison chart to help you decide.

Some other states accept Team Oregon completion cards. Contact the licensing agency in that state to verify that Team Oregon is accepted before signing up for a course.
Paperwork: You will need to bring your driver's license or driver's instruction permit and a completed waiver form. If you cannot print the waiver, we can provide one at class. Note that if you are under 18, a parent or guardian must also sign the waiver.
Riding Gear: For the on-bike training sessions, you will need to bring a DOT-approved helmet (loaner helmets are available), eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, boots or shoes that cover your ankle bones and full-fingered gloves.
Full details can be found in What to Bring. Read those details carefully. Students without the required riding gear will be dismissed without refund.
If you completed the course within the last two years, Team Oregon can replace your completion card free. Contact us.
