About DMV Locations

In Oregon, Driver and Motor Vehicle Services (DMV) is the state agency responsible for issuing titles and registration for vehicles and handling services related to driver's licenses, state identification cards, and records. The DMV also manages commercial driving and dealer vehicle services. DMV offices are located throughout the state. The office hours and days of operation may vary, so check with your local office before your visit.

You can title and register your vehicle at the same time in Oregon. If you apply at a DMV location, you will receive your plates immediately, while the title will be mailed within three to five weeks. You will need to complete an application for title and registration. If the vehicle is new, you need the Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (MCO), odometer disclosure, and a bill or sale or release from the previous owner for titling purposes. In order to register your vehicle, you will need proof that your vehicle either complies with Low Emissions Vehicle requirements or is exempt from them. You will also have to pay fees for the title, registration, and plates. If the vehicle is not new and you are transferring a title, you will need the original title rather than the MCO.

To apply for an Oregon driver's license, you must complete the application and bring valid proof of your identity, residency, and citizenship or legal resident status. You will need to pay a fee and pass the vision, knowledge, and driving tests. Driving tests must be scheduled in advance. Teen drivers who are at least 15 can apply for a provisional instruction permit with parental approval. At age 16, if you have held a permit for at least six months, completed the required coursework, and provided proof of practice driving hours, you can apply for a provisional license. At age 18, you can apply for a full license.
