(SALEM) - Beginning Friday, the Oregon DMV will no longer accept rental agreements or lease contracts as proof of residence when customers apply for driver licenses or identification cards because they are too easy to counterfeit.

ODOT spokesman David House says state law requires proof of a person’s home address before DMV can issue a driver license, instruction permit or ID card because only Oregon residents are eligible for Oregon driving privileges and ID cards.

Hose added that DMV will continue to accept mortgage agreements issued within the current or previous year of application for DMV services.
