You will have to apply for a new driver license, pay the original fee and take tests if your license has been expired for more than a year.

To renew online, you need to:
  • Go online;
  • Answer security questions;

  • Pay the renewal fee.
After you meet all the requirements:
  • You will get an online receipt to use as proof of valid driving privileges.  Note:  Many government agencies and businesses, such as the Transportation Security Administration and Social Security Administration, do not accept the online receipt as proof of identification.  Check with the agency or business before you go to find out what documents they will accept.
  • Your license will be mailed to the address you provide to DMV.  If you move or have a forwarding order on file with USPS the card will not be forwarded.

  • Make an appointment at a DMV office;
  • Provide proof of physical address and identity;
  • If you have a Hazardous Material Endorsement on your CDL, you must pay the testing fee, pass a HAZMAT Knowledge Test, and have passed a Transportation Safety Administration security background check within the past 5 years;
  • Certify the type of driving you do or will do and whether you meet federal requirements for driving a commercial motor vehicle;
  • Turn in your current Oregon CDL;
  • Pay the renewal fee; and
  • Get your picture taken.
After you meet all the requirements:
  • You will get an interim card to use as proof of valid 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.
  • Your license will be mailed to the address you provide to DMV. If you move, it will not go to a forwarding address.
