Reinstatement of Driving Privileges Suspended for Obtaining False ID

(1) Chapter 14, Oregon Law 2012 allows DMV to reinstate driving privileges prior to the full year suspension required under ORS 809.415(5) if DMV determines the person committed an act constituting an offense described in ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b) when he or she was under 21 years of age and the only reason for the act was to obtain a driver license, driver permit or identification card that would make the person appear old enough to purchase or consume alcohol or to enter licensed premises prohibited to minors.

(2) A person may request reinstatement of driving privileges if the person’s driving privileges or right to apply for driving privileges are suspended under ORS 809.415(5) and OAR 735-070-0004(3) for committing an act that constitutes an offense under ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b). To request reinstatement, the person must submit a written request for an administrative review. The request for an administrative review must include a signed statement describing how and for what purpose the person obtained a driver license or identification card when he or she committed the act under ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b).

(3) Upon receipt of a request described under section (2) of this rule, DMV will conduct an administrative review to determine if the person’s driving privileges or right to apply for driving privileges should be reinstated. DMV will authorize reinstatement of driving privileges or the right to apply, only if DMV determines the circumstances of the person’s commission of an act under ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b) meets all of the following criteria:

(a) The person was under 21 years of age at the time the person committed the act;

(b) The person’s driving privileges were not suspended or revoked at the time the person committed the act;

(c) The person did not commit more than one act described in ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b); and

(d) It appears from the statement provided that the act was committed solely for the purpose of attempting to purchase, purchasing, consuming or acquiring alcoholic beverages or entering or attempting to enter licensed premises posted or otherwise identified as being prohibited to the use of minors.

(4) Upon completion of an administrative review, DMV will issue an order. If DMV determines the circumstances of the person’s commission of an act under ORS 809.310(3)(a) or (b) meet the criteria set forth in section (3) of this rule, the person’s driving privileges or right to apply for driving privileges will be reinstated upon payment of a reinstatement fee.

NDR/PDPS and CDLIS Checks at Reinstatement

(1) Before reinstating suspended driving privileges, DMV will make an inquiry to the National Driver Register/Problem Driver Pointer System (NDR/PDPS) and the Commercial Driver License Information System (CDLIS) to determine if the person's driving privileges are suspended, revoked, canceled, or otherwise not valid in any other jurisdiction.

(2) DMV will not reinstate suspended driving privileges until the person's driving privileges are reinstated or otherwise valid in all jurisdictions, unless the only remaining reinstatement requirement in another jurisdiction is proof of financial responsibility. Nothing in this section prohibits DMV from reinstating a regular Class C driver license to a person whose commercial driving privileges are not valid in all other jurisdictions as long as the person's regular Class C or equivalent driving privileges are valid in all other jurisdictions.

(3) This rule does not apply if:

(a) The person has never been issued Oregon driving privileges;

(b) The person's Oregon-issued driving privileges are expired, revoked or cancelled; or

(c) The person's Oregon-issued driving privileges are suspended but the person has subsequently been issued driving privileges in another jurisdiction.

(3) DMV will suspend the driving privileges of a resident of this state, upon receiving notice from another state, territory, federal possession or district, or province of Canada that the person’s driving privileges have been suspended or revoked in that jurisdiction under circumstances which would require DMV to suspend driving privileges under ORS 813.410(1) if the conduct had occurred in Oregon.

(4) DMV will suspend the commercial driving privileges of a resident of this state pursuant to ORS 809.413(12), upon receiving notice that the person’s commercial driving privileges have been suspended or revoked in another jurisdiction under circumstances that would require DMV to suspend driving privileges if the conduct had occurred in Oregon.

Ignition Interlock Device (IID) as Requirement Following DUII Suspension

(1) A person convicted by an Oregon Court of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) must install and use an IID for the period of time specified in ORS 813.602 (1) or (2).

(2) DMV will suspend driving privileges for failure to install an IID if proof that an approved IID has been installed in the person's vehicle is not submitted to DMV by the ending date of the DUII suspension. The proof must be an installation report form showing an approved device, as described in OAR 735-118-0010, completed and signed by the provider who installed the device.

(3) A person may operate a vehicle(s) without an IID, if the person is medically unable to operate a vehicle equipped with an IID, and DMV grants a medical exemption from the IID requirement. To avoid suspension of driving privileges for failure to install an IID, the person must apply before the last day of the DUII suspension and submit to DMV:

(a) A written, signed statement from an IID provider that the provider is unable to adapt an IID to accommodate usage by the person because of the person's medical condition; and

(b) A written, signed statement from the person's medical doctor, doctor of osteopathy, naturopathic doctor, physician assistant or nurse practitioner containing the following information:

(A) The name of the exempting condition;

(B) Whether the condition is temporary or permanent and if temporary, when the condition will no longer prevent usage of an IID; and

(C) Whether the exemption is required because the condition results in the inability to sustain an exhaled breath sampling of five pounds of pressure for five seconds required to operate the device or results in a ketone level in the person's breath which will not allow the driver to successfully complete the test.

(4) When the application for a medical exemption is made under section (3) of this rule and approved by DMV, DMV will issue a medical exemption letter. The person must carry a copy of DMV's medical exemption letter while operating a vehicle that would otherwise require installation and use of an IID.

(5) DMV will reinstate driving privileges if during the suspension period for failure to install an IID, the person installs an IID or DMV grants the person a medical exemption.

Medical Exemption from IID Requirement

(1) A person may qualify for a medical exemption from the ignition interlock device (IID) requirement under ORS 813.602(1) and (2) if the person provides satisfactory evidence to DMV that due to a medical condition or impairment the person is unable to operate an IID or unable to safely operate a motor vehicle equipped with an IID. (2) The following definitions apply:

(a) A “health care provider” is a person licensed, certified or otherwise authorized or permitted by law to administer health care in the State of Oregon. For purposes of these rules, the term health care provider is limited to: a chiropractic physician, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant.

(b) A “primary care provider” is a physician or health care provider who is responsible for supervising, coordinating and providing a person's initial and ongoing health care.

(c) “Unable to safely operate a motor vehicle equipped with an IID” means the person’s medical condition or functional impairment prevents the person from safely operating a motor vehicle when requested to perform an IID rolling retest while operating a motor vehicle equipped with an IID.

(2) To apply for a medical exemption a person must submit a completed IID Medical Exemption form (DMV form 735-6941). The form must be completed by both the person and the person’s primary care provider or the physician or health care provider providing specialized treatment to the person for the particular medical condition or functional impairment that prevents the person from operating an IID or prevents the person from safely operating a motor vehicle equipped with an IID.

(3) The person must fully complete the information in Section 1 of the IID Medical Exemption form, including:

(a) The reason(s) the person is required to install an IID; and

(b) An explanation of why the person believes he or she has a medical condition or functional impairment that prevents the operation of an IID or prevents safe operation of a vehicle equipped with an IID.

(4) Section 2 of the IID Medical Exemption form must be completed by the person’s primary care provider, or a physician or health care provider providing specialized treatment to the person for a medical condition or functional impairment that prevents the person from operating an IID or prevents the person from safely operating a motor vehicle equipped with an IID. The physician or health care provider must determine that in his or her professional opinion the person is unable to operate an IID or is unable to safely operate a vehicle equipped with an IID because of the person’s medical condition or functional impairment, including but not limited to a determination that:

(a) The person has a medical condition or functional impairment that does not allow the person to provide the necessary alveolar air or deep lung air sample to properly operate the device; or

(b) The person consistently has a ketone level in his or her breath which creates a false positive reading of over .025 blood alcohol concentration even though the person has had no alcohol.

(5) If the determination of the physician or health care provider described in section (4) of this rule is not based on subsection (a) or (b), the physician or health care provider must provide a detailed description of why the medical condition or functional impairment prevents the person from operating an IID or prevents the person from safely operating a motor vehicle equipped with an IID.

(6) In completing Section 2 of the IID Medical Exemption form, the physician or health care provider must:

(a) Specify the medical condition or functional impairment that prevents the person from operating an IID or prevents the person from safely operating a vehicle equipped with an IID;

(b) State whether the medical condition or functional impairment is permanent or temporary, and if temporary, the projected length of time; and

(c) Specify why the medical condition or functional impairment prevents the person from operating an IID or prevents the person from safely operating a motor vehicle equipped with an IID.

(7) From the information provided on the IID Medical Exemption form, DMV will determine if the person qualifies for a medical exemption. If DMV determines from the information on the form that the person qualifies, DMV will issue a medical exemption. If DMV is unable to determine from the information provided that the person qualifies, DMV will deny the medical exemption.

(8) If the person’s medical condition or functional impairment is temporary, DMV will issue a temporary IID medical exemption that expires on the date specified in Section 2 of the IID Medical Exemption form, or a date six months from the date of issuance if no date is provided. If the temporary condition or functional impairment continues beyond the expiration date of the temporary IID medical exemption, the person may submit a signed statement from the physician or health care provider who completed the Request for IID Medical Exemption form describing the person’s continuing need for a medical exemption, or the person may submit a new application as set forth in sections (2) through (4) of this rule. From the information submitted DMV will determine if the person continues to qualify for a temporary IID medical exemption.

(9) Before granting or denying an IID medical exemption, DMV may require the person to provide additional information from a physician or health care provider or to obtain a statement from an IID provider that the device cannot be adjusted to accommodate the person’s medical condition or functional impairment.

(10) A person who is granted an IID medical exemption by DMV will be issued a medical exemption letter. The person must carry the IID medical exemption letter issued by DMV when driving.

(11) A person who must install and use an IID as a condition of a DUII diversion agreement must obtain an IID medical exemption from the court. The person must submit a completed IID Medical Exemption form directly to the court that approved the DUII diversion agreement. The court must approve or deny the IID medical exemption request. DMV will not forward an IID Medical Exemption form to a court if it is submitted to DMV in error.

(12) A person may need both an IID medical exemption letter issued by DMV and an IID medical exemption approval issued by a court. An IID medical exemption letter issued by DMV is not valid if the person is required to install an IID as a condition of a DUII diversion. A medical exemption issued by a court is not valid if the requirement to install and use an IID is required for any reason other than a DUII diversion agreement. Both an IID medical exemption letter issued by DMV and IID medical exemption approval issued by a court must be carried by the person when driving.
