If you need a license please call 971-352-0455 or 971-673-0207, and we will be able to arrange a time or provide you with the necessary paperwork. Our applications are available online at www.oregon.gov/racing, as well as a credit card authorization form. Licensing fees are $60 for the first license and $30 for the second license, any subsequent licenses for the same person are free. Stable licenses are $60.

Please include a check or the credit card authorization form for the licensing fee, and a picture from your shoulders up, on a blank background. Checks should be made out to ORC.
