Administrative Review

General Information

DMV may order a suspension, cancellation or revocation of your driving privileges in accordance with Oregon law when receiving a conviction, court order, or report from another authority. You are entitled to have DMV check those documents in a process known as an administrative review. The purpose of an administrative review is to make sure that:

  • DMV did not make any mistakes on your driver record; and
  • DMV followed all appropriate laws and rules.

An administrative review is not a meeting between you and a DMV employee or a third party, or a review of the conviction.  The notice you received from DMV will say if you are entitled to an administrative review. Your notice may say that you are entitled to an administrative hearing instead.

Your suspension or revocation will remain in effect during the administrative review.
