What's New in Oregon
We try to stay in touch with the latest insurance related developments happening in Oregon. What happens in Salem can affect all of us from the price of gasoline to how much it will cost to drive on our freeways. Insurance related laws and orders are considered and passed constantly that will affect how much you or your insurance company will pay and the limit you will receive after an accident. The companies are constantly inventing ways to adjust how they charge based on the analysis of data they collect on you, your car and all drivers. We just want you to be informed so you can make the right decision.

Have your driver’s license handy when you call 503-299-9999 for the Oregon DMV. They can answer questions about the status of your license. If they suspend your license, they can tell you why and what you can do to reinstate it. You might have unpaid fines or an unreported accident. Paying the fines or negotiating a payment plan with the court can release the suspension hold. If you failed to report an accident promptly, complete one the best you can and turn it in. You still might have to pay the reinstatement fee.

You can also enquire about specific tickets or accidents. Be prepared with the date, and they can tell you where you got the ticket and which court holds jurisdiction over the incident. They won’t be able to give you a complete list of your accidents and tickets. You must request an official transcript of your record. They’ll guide you in how to do that.

The DMV can answer specific questions about your automobile, such as the status of your tags’ expiration and how to go about getting a replacement title. You can find answers to many of your questions by searching the Oregon DMV website.
