A dealer may use their dealer plate on any vehicle over which the dealer has actual ownership or control. The law states dealer plates may be used by the dealer, members of the dealers firm, salespeople or any other person authorized by the dealer. A dealer plate may not be used on a vehicle that is used for hire or for direct compensation. The dealer plate is not intended to be used on commercial vehicles, vehicles carrying a load, or vehicles towing other vehicles. See Oregon Revised Statute 822.040
