Our mission & vision

WHO
The Oregon Friendly Driver course is geared towards professional drivers, such as truck drivers, delivery drivers, bus drivers, and other professionals that spend time on the roads. Unlike a bicycle safety or pedestrian safety class, this class is designed specifically for drivers to learn how to be a friendly driver.

The course can also benefit students and individuals. Teachers can include this course into their driver education classes. Individual drivers can also benefit from the course and are welcome to take the online course anytime or inquire about our scheduled live webinars – there are often opportunities to join community-based live webinars already scheduled.
