Present Duties

The Driver and Motor Vehicle Division (DMV) contributes to
public safety by licensing only qualified persons and vehicles to drive on Oregon roads. DMV issues titles to protect the financial and ownership interests in vehicles. There are currently more than 3.5 million licensed drivers and over 4.2 million registered vehicles in Oregon. The fees collected for licensing and registration are dedicated to the Oregon Highway Fund. Law enforcement uses DMV computer records thousands of times throughout the year. DMV also licenses commercial driving schools and instructors, snowmobile dealers and instructors, and vehicle dealers and wreckers. Each day, DMV serves about 12,000 customers statewide, and each year, 1.8 million customers served by telephone. Many transactions can be performed online at the DMV Web site.
