The Department of Transportation has partnered with Oregon law enforcement agencies to exercise discretion in their enforcement of driver licenses, vehicle registrations and trip permits that expire during the COVID-19 emergency.
The moratorium under HB 2137 providing a six-month grace period for expired driving privileges ended on Dec. 31, 2021. As of Jan. 1, you can be cited and convicted for operating a vehicle without current, valid privileges, and if you CLP is expired you cannot take a CDL drive test.
If you are registered to vote and do not move your address, you are still registered. The expiration of your driver license or ID card has nothing to do with voter registration.
