Oregon’s traffic citation moratorium ends next week

SALEM, Ore. – The moratorium on ticketing for certain traffic offenses in Oregon is about to come to an end.

Last year, the Oregon Department of Transportation and Oregon law enforcement agencies agreed to a vehicle registration, permit, and driver license renewal grace period as the DMV caught up with a backlog due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That agreement was later made law, with an expiration date of December 31, 2021.

Starting January 1, 2022, Oregon police officers can once again issue citations for operating a vehicle with an expired license, driving with an expired vehicle registration, and parking in a space reserved for persons with disabilities while using an expired parking permit.

Fortunately, for many Oregon drivers who are racing against the clock, they can now renew licenses, permits, or ID cards online at http://DMV2U.Oregon.gov.
