About Us
Overview
Image of the state of Oregon with a DMV logo over itThe Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division (DMV), is a branch of the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT).
 
Our mission is to promote driver safety, protect financial and ownership interests in vehicles, grant driving privileges, provide driver licenses and identification cards for Oregon residents and collect revenue for Oregon's roads.
 
Our main headquarters building is located in Salem, OR and we provide local customer service offices throughout the state.
 
Official Web Site
The Oregon DMV maintains and endorses only one official Web site located at http://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV.
 
Users should avoid other Web sites claiming to represent the Oregon DMV or all state DMV's and those promising to deliver easy online DMV services, especially those charging a fee to access online forms, skills tests or services. Always check your search results carefully and look for disclaimers and text that indicates that a site is not an official Oregon state government site.
 
Note: Many unofficial Web sites will provide links to our official Oregon DMV site but that does not mean that there is a formal relationship or endorsement in place. Anyone can build links to any publicly accessible Web page.
 
Note: We may reference our old Web site located at http://www.oregondmv.com within some advertisements and printed materials but users are redirected via automated algorithms to the official Web site listed above when this address is entered.
 
Note: Users may be sent to pages within our old Web site located at http://www.oregondmv.com when accessing our online service menus or online forms from our current Web site.
 
Note: When reviewing search results, remember that anyone can describe their site as Oregon DMV. You must look at the URL. If the page address doesn't start with either www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV or www.oregondmv.com, it is not part of our official Web site.
 
Hours of Operation
Central support staff at DMV Headquarters may be contacted from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding statewide holidays and mandated closures. Hours of operation may vary at local customer service office locations.
