Sample Oregon Driver Licenses and ID Cards

 

 

​Interim cards for driver licenses and ID cards are printed in black and grey on blue security paper. They have the same data as the final card, including barcodes. The type of card is listed in the shaded bar directly under the word "Oregon."

Note: Many government agencies and businesses, such as the Transportation Security Administration and Social Security Administration, do not accept the interim card as proof of identification. Check with the agency or business before you go to find out what documents they will accept.

Interim Sample

Cards Issued Beginning December 2018

Cards have been centrally issued since 2007. Oregon debuted a new card design in late 2018. The new design uses national standards for layout and content, which help emergency responders find critical information. The card is made from a durable plastic material and features a colorful background printed in tiny patterns. The photograph is on the left side with signature overlaid beneath.

Cards issued to minors feature a vertical layout to clearly identify customers under the age of 21. Cards include the dates the customer will turn 21 years old and 18 years old inside a red box on the right side of the card. The date the customer will turn 18 only appears when the customer was issued prior to their 18th birthday.

Each card issued includes information that clearly identifies the type of card and the cardholder’s privileges. The color of the header bar at the top of the card varies depending on the type of card. Heading titles and header bar colors for cards include:

  • DRIVER LICENSE in a Blue Bar;
  • IDENTIFICATION CARD in a Green Bar; and
  • COMMERCIAL DRIVER LICENSE in a Red Bar.

​Oregon's digital driver license and ID cards offer several features that improve security and prevent fraud:

  • Tamper-resistant laminate covering the card front shows a hologram at certain angles and light conditions.
  • Durable and tamper-resistant materials.
  • Small "ghost image" copy of card holder's photo.
  • Overlapping type and graphics, including image of state Capitol.
  • Bar-coded information on back.
