4. Which course should I take?

It depends on your age, experience, skill level and endorsmeent status. Try our course selection tool to help you decide.

5. When I pass, do I still have to go to DMV?

Yes. Students should fill out a driver’s license application form in advance and be prepared to show proof of identity and date of birth, take a vision screening test and pay the DMV fee(s) for the endorsement.

Most students must pass the DMV knowledge test to complete the licensing process. Study the Oregon Motorcycle & Moped Manual to prepare for the DMV test. You can view the manual online or pick up a printed copy at DMV. The manual is also available in audio format.

Save yourself time and read up on DMV requirements before you go.

6. When will I get my completion card? Do I need to take my completion card to DMV?

Completion cards are e-mailed within 72 hours of course completion. You must complete all riding and classroom sessions, and endorsement-course students must pass a riding skill test, to be eligible for a completion card.

You do not need to take your completion card to DMV. Once you complete all classroom and riding sessions and pass the riding test, Team Oregon will update your DMV record within 72 hours.

7. Does Team Oregon provide motorcycles and helmets?

Yes. Team Oregon provides DOT-approved helmets and lightweight training motorcycles and scooters for all endorsement (Basic and Intermediate) courses. Our training fleet is made up of various makes and models of small, lightweight machines 125-250 cc with seat heights to suit short, medium or tall riders. Training bikes are not available for advanced courses.

8. Can I bring my own motorcycle or scooter?

Yes, if it is of allowable size, street legal, insured and passes a safety inspection. Full details of the requirements for student-owned vehicles can be found on What to Bring. Note that overnight storage at training sites for personal vehicles is not available.

9. Is Team Oregon accepted in other states?

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.

10. What paperwork and riding gear should I bring for the on-bike training sessions?

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.

11. I lost my completion card. How do I get a new one?

If you completed the course within the last two years, Team Oregon can issue you a new completion card. The fee is $15. To request a completion card you can contact us by phone at 800-545-9944 or send a written request that includes the date of course, location, your current mailing address, driver’s license number and your name at the time you took the course. Please submit your written request and payment to:

12. Who is required to take a motorcycle course?
All applicants for a first-time motorcycle endorsement (new riders) on their Oregon driver license are required to take a course.

Riders who already have a motorcycle endorsement, including those from other states, are not required to take a course – although it is encouraged.

13. How long does the course take?

Basic takes 2 or 3 days, depending on whether you choose online classroom or in-person classroom. Intermediate takes 1 day or 1/2 day, depending on whether you choose online classroom or in-person classroom. Most advanced courses take 1/2 day or less. Advanced Riding Techniques (ART) takes 1 day.
