Distracted Driving Avoidance Course in our office in Beaverton or Gresham

According to Oregon Department of Transportation, there are four types of distracted driving:

  • Visual: Distractions when looking at the surroundings and not the road.
  • Auditory: Music, passengers, or other noises that take your attention from the road.
  • Manual: Eating food, using your phone, or using your hands for something other than holding the wheel.
  • Cognitive: When your mind wanders and you become distracted thinking about something else.

If you have been convicted of driving while distracted, this Distracted Driving Avoidance Course may be available to you. At your court appearance, ask the judge if this is an option.

Available only to those who have been convicted of a first offense, the course needs to be completed within 120 days of the sentence date, participants must pass with a minimum of 80 percent, and it’s also important to note that the violation will not be removed from the driving record.

The instructors at Pacific Driver Education will go in-depth about how to recognize when you are distracted and methods and techniques for avoiding distractions on the road. Even drivers who have had years or decades of experience on the road can become distracted, especially when there is a phone within reach. We can help you, passengers in the car, and other drivers on the road stay safe.
