About Us

U-TURN180 is an Oregon-owned and operated small business that has been providing Oregon-specific traffic safety education courses since 2010.  We are dedicated to delivering quality, Oregon-specific traffic safety education to drivers sent by their insurance company, an Oregon court or police agency, or the Oregon DMV. 

The driving experience of our customers varies widely, from novice to experienced drivers of all ages. We designed our website with all users in mind, including accessibility, language options, and multiple device and browser capabilities.

Our goal is to help reduce traffic crashes, injuries, and preventable deaths on Oregon roads through traffic safety education.

We are certified as an Emerging Small Business, through the State of Oregon office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID).
