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. DMV does not determine whether you are guilty of a specific offense (that is up to the courts). DMV cannot consider circumstances that may have led to the suspension or revocation imposed on your driving privileges. 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.
