Who Can Apply for a Hardship or Probationary Permit

(1) Any Oregon resident whose driving privileges are suspended may apply for a hardship permit unless the person’s driving privileges are revoked for any reason or suspended under:

(a) ORS 25.780 for failure to pay child support because 807.250(3) does not allow the issuance of a hardship permit;

(b) ORS 809.280(10) for a controlled substance conviction because 807.250(2) does not allow the issuance of a hardship permit;

(c) ORS 809.419(1) for failure to appear for or pass required tests because 813.520 provides that no hardship permit may be issued if a person has a mental or physical condition that makes the person unsafe to drive a motor vehicle;

(d) ORS 809.419(2) for failure to obtain a required medical clearance because 813.520 provides that no hardship permit may be issued if a person has a mental or physical condition that makes the person unsafe to drive a motor vehicle;

(e) ORS 809.419(3) for a mental or physical condition because 813.520 provides that no hardship permit may be issued if a person has a mental or physical condition that makes the person unsafe to drive a motor vehicle;

(f) ORS 809.421(1) for habitual incompetence, recklessness or criminal negligence or committing a serious violation of the motor vehicle laws because 809.421(1)(b) states this suspension is subject to any conditions the department determines necessary. The department has determined that a person suspended under this subsection may not be issued a hardship permit;

(g) ORS 809.419(5) upon notification by the superintendent of a hospital because 813.520 provides that no hardship permit may be issued if a person has a mental or physical condition that makes the person unsafe to drive a motor vehicle;

(h) ORS 809.419(6) when a person charged with a traffic offense has been found guilty except for insanity because 813.520 provides that no hardship permit may be issued if a person has a mental or physical condition that makes the person unsafe to drive a motor vehicle;

(i) ORS 813.400 and 813.403, and the person fails to install or use an IID in a vehicle(s) the person intends to operate, because under 813.602(1)(a) an IID must be installed before the person is eligible for a hardship permit;

(j) ORS 813.602(6) for tampering with an ignition interlock device because tampering with an ignition interlock device shows the person is a reckless driver and does not qualify for a hardship permit under 807.240(3)(d).

(k) ORS 809.280(5) or 809.416(1) for failure to appear in court, because 807.250(4) does not allow the issuance of a hardship permit; or

(L) ORS 809.416(2) for failure to pay a fine or obey a court order, because 807.250(4) does not allow the issuance of a hardship permit.

(2) DMV will not issue a hardship permit that authorizes a person to operate a commercial motor vehicle because 807.240(2) does not allow the issuance of a hardship permit to drive a commercial motor vehicle.

(3) Any Oregon resident whose driving privileges are revoked as a habitual traffic offender may apply for a probationary permit unless the person’s driving privileges are also revoked for any reason other than being a habitual traffic offender or are also suspended for any of the reasons listed in section (1) of this rule. DMV will not issue a probationary permit that authorizes a person to operate a commercial motor vehicle because ORS 807.270(4) does not allow the issuance of a probationary permit to drive a commercial motor vehicle.

Ignition Interlock Device (IID) Requirement for Issuance of Hardship, Probationary or Hardship/Probationary Permits

(1) When a person whose driving privileges are suspended or revoked applies for a hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit, DMV will require the applicant to install an ignition interlock device (IID) in any vehicle operated by the applicant if the applicant’s driving record shows any of the following:

(a) The applicant’s driving privileges are currently suspended based on a conviction for DUII in an Oregon court;

(b) The applicant is currently participating in a DUII Diversion Agreement and the court ordered an IID as a condition of the agreement; or

(c) The applicant’s driving privileges are revoked as a habitual offender and the applicant is also required to install an IID:

(A) As a condition of a DUII Diversion Agreement;

(B) During the suspension period for a conviction for DUII entered in an Oregon court; or

(C) Following the end of a suspension or revocation of driving privileges for DUII or any crime described in ORS 813.602(1) or (2).

(2) As a condition of a hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit, the IID must be installed, maintained and used in any vehicle the person operates for the duration of the person’s IID requirement. The IID requirement may exceed the period the person’s hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit is valid.

(3) When installation of an IID is required, DMV will not issue a hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit to the person until a provider submits an installation report form showing an approved device has been installed in each vehicle the person intends to operate during the permit period. The provider who installed the device(s) must sign the installation report form.

(4) Notwithstanding section (1) of this rule, DMV may issue a hardship, probationary or a hardship/probationary permit to a person who has not installed an IID if the person will only operate a vehicle(s) owned or leased by his or her employer during the course and scope of the person’s employment. For purposes of ORS 813.606, DMV will place a notation on the driving record and on the hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit issued to the person that the person's employer has been informed of the IID requirement. To qualify, DMV must receive:

(a) A letter on business letterhead, signed by the employer, stating that the employer has been informed of the IID requirement and that the person is required to operate the employer's vehicle(s) in the course and scope of employment; or

(b) An Employer IID Exemption, (DMV form 735-6874) submitted by the employer.

(5) For purposes of ORS 813.606, a person who is self-employed is not an employee and DMV will not place an employer IID notification notation on the person's driving record.

(6) Notwithstanding section (1) of this rule, DMV may issue a hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit to a person who has not installed an IID if the person has been issued a medical exemption under OAR 735-070-0082.

(7) The hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit will contain a restriction that the person may only operate vehicles equipped with an IID. If the person operates a vehicle owned or leased by the person's employer in the course and scope of employment or has been issued a medical exemption, the hardship, probationary or hardship/probationary permit driving restrictions will state that the person must have in his or her possession a copy of the employer's IID exemption letter, a completed DMV Employer IID Exemption Form, an IID medical exemption letter issued by DMV, or an IID medical exemption approval issued by a court.

(8) The IID restriction in a hardship, probationary, or hardship/probationary permit will specify the length of time allowed for the person to travel to and from an IID provider’s facility to have the IID checked or maintained.
