How do I cancel or reschedule?

To cancel or reschedule, you must contact Team Oregon at 800-545-9944. Cancellation and reschedule policy requires that you contact us at least three days before to the course to avoid paying the cancellation fee. 

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.

DMV waives both state knowledge and skills tests for BRT graduates. DMV waives only the skills test for IRT, eRider Basic and eRider Intermediate graduates. Those riders 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.

Do I need to take my completion card to DMV?

No, if you successfully complete a Team Oregon endorsement course after 7/6/20. For basic and intermediate students, once you complete all classroom, and riding session and pass the riding skill test, Team Oregon will update your DMV record within 72 hours. DMV will still accept a completion card dated before 7/6/20 if the card is less than two years old.

Does Team Oregon provide motorcycles and helmets?

Yes. Team Oregon provides DOT-approved helmets and lightweight training motorcycles and scooters for all basic and intermediate courses. Our 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.

During the COVID-19 emergency, it is strongly recommended that students bring their own helmet.

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 our What to Bring page. Note that overnight storage at training sites for personal vehicles is not available.

Is Team Oregon accepted in other states?

Some other states accept Team Oregon completion cards. Contact the licensing agency in your home state to verify which course is accepted before signing up for a Team Oregon course.

When will I receive my course completion card?

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.

I lost my course 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 you can 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.
