Or. Admin. R. 735-034-0050 - Issuing Trip Permits

(1) The following procedures and requirements apply to the issuance of vehicle trip permits under ORS 803.600.
(2) Trip permits are issued and are valid for a period of consecutive days based on permit type.
(3) Except as described in subsection (e) of this section, a registration weight trip permit is required for a vehicle under the following circumstances:
(a) The vehicle is registered in Oregon by loaded weight and the weight exceeds the registration weight of the vehicle declared under ORS 803.435;
(b) The vehicle is registered in Oregon by combined weight, and the combined weight exceeds the registration weight declared under ORS 803.435; or
(c) The vehicle is a commercial vehicle registered by combined weight under ORS 826.009, 826.011 or 826.031, and the weight exceeds the registration weight declared under ORS 826.015.
(d) If the vehicle is registered by combined weight under subsection (b) or (c) of this section, a registration weight trip permit is only issued to the motor vehicle used to tow a trailer or load.
(e) Subsection (b) of this section does not apply to a vehicle registered by combined weight, if the vehicle is towing a person's own commercial fishing boat and the combined weight of the vehicle, boat and trailer is 15,000 pounds or less.
(4) A heavy motor vehicle trip permit or heavy trailer trip permit may only be issued to vehicles that are not registered in Oregon. Either permit authorizes the operation of a single, unregistered vehicle. For example, if a truck/trailer combination is not registered in Oregon, and is not operating under the authority of an interstate reciprocity agreement, then both the truck and the trailer must obtain a permit. If, however, one of the two vehicles is registered, for example, the trailer, then only the truck is required to have a permit.
(5) An applicant for a recreational vehicle trip permit must:
(a) Provide proof satisfactory to DMV that the applicant is the owner of the camper, travel trailer or motor home listed on the permit application. Proof DMV may consider includes a valid certificate of title, a bill of sale or other ownership document as described in OAR 735-022-0000; and
(b) If the permit is for a motor home, provide the name and policy number of the current insurance carrier and certify that the motor home is covered, and will continue to be covered by insurance as required by ORS 806.080 for as long as the permit is valid.
