DMV to Stop Accepting Rental Agreements as Proof of Address (AUDIO)Kevin Hays Salem-News.com Audio News Report
Applicants need at least one document from the DMV’s list of acceptable documents to prove their address if they do not already have an Oregon driver license, instruction permit or ID card showing their current address.
(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.
House says there are still plenty of options available for proving residency.
Hose added that DMV will continue to accept mortgage agreements issued within the current or previous year of application for DMV services.
A complete list of acceptable documents is available at www.oregondmv.com and at DMV field offices.
