License & Vehicle Registration reminder from the Hood River Police


To our Community and Visitors,

Since the start of the year, our Officers have experienced a large influx of violations that were on the Oregon DMV Moratorium the Governor signed during the pandemic.

If you’ve got an expired Oregon license or vehicle registration, it’s time to book an Oregon Driver & Motor Vehicle appointment. Oregon’s moratorium on expired licenses, ID cards and vehicle registration expired December 31, 2021.

In 2020, the DMV closed its 60 offices across Oregon amid the pandemic, prompting a huge backlog. When the offices reopened, there was a long backlog which was increased by staff shortages and restrictions such as capacity limits and appointment-only services.

Since reopening, the DMV has increased its available appointments and is also now accepting walk-ins.

Many services are now available online, so agency officials say it’s worth checking the DMV website before making the trip. If you have to go in person, make an appointment through, or just show up.

If you choose to NOT renew these things, it could cost you $115.00 for a registration violation to $265 for a drivers license violation. If you have any question with this please give an Officer a call to get clarification.

Thank you HRPD
