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
