You won’t get a ticket for these offenses in Oregon for the remainder of 2020

The Department of Transportation has partnered with Oregon law enforcement agencies to exercise discretion in their enforcement of ​driver licenses, vehicle registrations, and trip permits that expire during the COVID-19 emergency.

On July 7, Governor Kate Brown signed into law Senate Bill 1601, which creates a moratorium on citations for certain DMV-related activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent reduction of DMV services effective between March 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020. This means that a police officer cannot issue a citation for the following DMV products if they expired during the Mar-Dec 2020 timeframe:​​

  • Driver license and identification cards
  • Passenger vehicle registrations
  • Commercial vehicle registrations
  • Trip permits and temporary registrations
  • Disabled parking permits
