Here is what we know, as of today. The governor has mandated that Oregon counties meet certain criteria and it appears that there are seven items that need to be met. Multnomah has not even started working on the first item. Washington and Clackamas Counties are working on at least the first couple of them. We plan to open as soon as we are allowed to do so, but we do not know an exact date for that. DMV has a back log of 100,000 transactions When DMV reopens, they will see customers by appointment only. We also understand that they will not administer drive tests for several weeks after they open
Some good news is that if you have an appointment at Pacific Driver Education for a drive test, we will administer your test as soon as we are allowed to do so. If you have a drive lesson on the books, we will proceed with your lessons as soon as we can. For those of you who have already registered for a lesson or DMV exam, you will be at the very top of our list when our doors reopen. We will provide your services in the order that you registered and paid for them, preserving your place in line.
If you decide to cancel servers you have registered for, it may be fall before we will be able to fulfill your need. We currently have many clients who are registered and have over 100 on our waitlist.
We want you to have all the information possible so you can make the best decision about your lessons or drive test. We are aware that many of you need your license for work. Please know that we will do whatever we can to help as soon as we are allowed to do so. In the meantime, you may register and pay for services to secure your place in line. You may also put your name on our waitlist if you prefer. The purpose of the waitlist is simply to advise you about when our office will reopen, it does not secure services, only paid registrations do that.
