  2. How do I know if I qualify?
  3. To qualify for Photo enforcement, the following must apply:

      -No speeding ticket or red-light tickets in the state of Oregon ONLY for the last (3) years. There are no exceptions to this rule.
      -You are within the 45-day window form the VIOLATION DATE of the citation. This date is the same as the infraction date and can be found on the photo copy of your citation.
      -The citation was issued in your name and you are the registered owner of the vehicle.
      -You have not previously taken this class for a speeding or red-light citation within the last three years.

  4. 3. Why is there a fee? What does it mean when it says, "The fee will be waived." Will I get my money back?
    • Photo Enforcement class is offered at a discounted rate, in place of the citation fee. The money that you pay for this class, will not be refunded. Essentially, you are paying for and attending the Photo Enforcement class instead of paying for the citation and attending your court date. Once you have attended the Photo Enforcement class, the citation will not appear on your record and you do not have to take any further steps.

  5. What happens/what do I do after I take the class?
    • Nothing! Once you have taken this class, your citation number will be submitted back to the courts and will be waived from your driving record. We will provide you with a certificate for your own records at the end of class.

  6. How do I get refunded for canceling or not attending my scheduled class?
    • If you have canceled a class or paid for your class and found out later that you do not qualify, you will need to call our office so that we can assist with canceling your class and refunding your payment. NOTE: If you signed up for class before knowing your record and then cancel due to another ticket on your record, there will be a refund processing fee of $15.

  7. To reschedule, cancel a class or receive a refund for any reason:
    • If you have missed your scheduled class date, want to reschedule or if you need a refund, call (971-701-0331) or email us (info@pdxdrivers.com) to be rescheduled. We will be happy to reschedule you if it is still within your 45-day window.

  8. What do I do if I have passed my 45-day deadline?
    • After you miss the 45-day deadline you will be required to either pay your ticket in full or attend your court date. After that deadline is passed, the only way to attend the Photo Enforcement class is to be court approval. There are no exceptions to this rule. For possible court approval, you will need to attend your court date and speak with a judge or officer.
