The registered vehicle trip permit allows the operation of Oregon-registered vehicles under conditions, or in ways, not allowed by the current registration.
DMV issues these permits most often to government vehicles with E plates, and to school buses with SC (school bus) plates. The vehicle must have current (not expired) Oregon registration in order to be issued a registered vehicle trip permit.
This permit is not for vehicles currently registered as farm, prorated farm, for-rent, charitable/non-profit, tow/recovery, or as manufactured structure transporters. Furthermore, a person cannot buy this trip permit to operate as a tow/recovery business, since a tow business certificate is required. Note: For a light (passenger) vehicle with expired registration, see Light Vehicle Trip Permits. For a passenger vehicle that will be temporarily towing a trailer at a greater weight than current registration allows, see Registration Weight Trip Permits.
