Or. Admin. R. 735-074-0210 - Restricted Licenses

(1) DMV may issue a restricted license to a person who passes the required tests when DMV determines a restriction on the license is necessary to insure the safe operation of a motor vehicle by the person. These restrictions may include but are not limited to the following:
(a) Daylight driving only;
(b) Driving only on a certain, restricted route;
(c) Driving only during certain hours of the day; or
(d) Driving only with certain vehicle equipment or adaptive devices.
(2) A person whose driving privileges are suspended under division 74 rules, who is otherwise eligible for driving privileges, may obtain a 60-day restricted license for the express purpose of taking driving lessons. The suspension will be rescinded for the 60-day period the restricted license is valid. Driving lessons must be provided by a commercial driving instructor, a rehabilitation specialist or other licensed driver approved by DMV as an instructor. The restricted license will only allow the person to drive with an instructor during instruction. No other driving, under any circumstances, will be allowed by the restricted license. All the following must occur before DMV will issue a restricted license under this section:
(a) If required by DMV, the person must receive a determination of medical eligibility from the Medical Determination Officer;
(b) The person must pass a DMV vision screening or submit a Certificate of Vision showing that the person's vision meets DMV standards; and
(c) The person must pass a DMV knowledge test.
(3) A restricted license issued under section (2) of this rule will include a notification that at the end of the 60-day period the suspension will be re-imposed without further notice and without the opportunity for a contested case hearing if the person has not successfully passed a driving test given by a DMV employee.
(4) If, at the end of the 60-day restricted license period under section (2) of this rule, the person has not successfully completed a driving test given by a DMV employee, DMV will re-impose the suspension of the person's driving privileges and right to apply for driving privileges. When a suspension is re-imposed under this section, DMV is not required to provide the person with further notice or an opportunity for a contested case hearing.
