Or. Admin. R. 735-074-0212 - Restricted Applicant Temporary Permit
(1) When a person does not have Oregon driving privileges and his or her right to apply for driving privileges is suspended under OAR division 74, DMV may issue a 60-day restricted applicant temporary permit that allows the person to take driving lessons. An applicant for a permit under this section must meet all eligibility requirements listed in section (5) of this rule. The suspension will be rescinded for the 60-day period the restricted applicant temporary permit is valid. If, at the end of the 60-day restricted permit period, the person has not successfully completed a driving test given by a DMV employee, or is not otherwise eligible for driving privileges, DMV will re-impose the suspension of the person's 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.
(2) If a person's driving privileges are cancelled and the driver is denied further testing under OAR 735-062-0073, the person may apply for a 60-day restricted applicant temporary permit for the express purpose of taking driving lessons if DMV determines that with driving lessons the person may learn to safely operate a motor vehicle. An applicant for a permit under this section must, in addition to meeting all eligibility requirements listed in section (5) of this rule, provide sufficient information to show that there is a reasonable likelihood that driving lessons will improve the person's ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Such information may include, but is not limited to:
(a) Medical information;
(b) Information from a rehabilitation specialist that the person may benefit from lessons to learn to use an adaptive device or technique; or
(c) An affidavit from a person(s) with information to show that with driving lessons the applicant is likely to learn to safely operate a motor vehicle.
(3) Driving lessons must be provided by a certified commercial driving instructor, rehabilitation specialist or other licensed driver approved by DMV as an instructor.
(4) A restricted applicant temporary permit only allows the person to drive with an instructor during driving lessons and at no other time.
(5) To be eligible for a restricted applicant temporary permit under section (1) and (2) of this rule, the person must:
(a) If required by DMV, receive a determination of medical eligibility from the Medical Determination Officer;
(b) Apply for driving privileges, and specifically request a restricted license or permit for the purpose of taking driving lessons prior to taking a drive test;
(c) Pass a DMV vision screening or submit a Certificate of Vision showing that the person's vision meets DMV standards; and
(d) Pass a DMV knowledge test.
(6) A restricted permit issued under section (1) 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 or is not otherwise eligible for driving privileges.
(7) A restricted permit issued under section (2) of this rule will include a notification that at the end of the 60-day period the permit expires and the person no longer has driving privileges until he or she has successfully passed a DMV driving test and is eligible for driving privileges.
