Get a Driver License - Over 18


To Get a Driver License

Under 18?

You will have different things to do. The instructions for you are on our Teen Site.

Additional Requirements

  • You must turn in any driver license or permit from another state or country if you have one.
  • You must turn in any driver license or ID card you have from Oregon.
  • You cannot be suspended, cancelled, or revoked in Oregon or any other state.

Miscellaneous Information

  • You will get an interim card to use as proof of driving privileges. 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.
  • You will get a limited term license if you are temporarily in the U.S.  Limited term licenses expire on the same date as your authorized length of stay, or in 1 year if your stay is indefinite.
  • Your license will be mailed to the address on the application. If you move, it will not go to a forwarding address.
