Oregon's Entry Policy-Plan Ahead

Oregon's Entry Policy-Plan Ahead

Oregon recently made a change to the Entry Policy. When traveling in Oregon or entering Oregon, carriers must obtain tax and registration credentials prior to operating. The only exception is if entering Oregon on I-5 @ OR/WA Border and going directly to Portland Bridge Office @ Jantzen Beach and purchasing credentials. The Portland Office @ Jantzen Beach is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Drivers will be subject to citation and up to a $435 fine when:
1. Entering Oregon on I-5 on the OR/WA Border and the Portland Bridge Registration Office is closed or you enter anywhere else and you do not have your credentials prior to entering the state.
2. You operate in Oregon without credentials, your Motor Carrier Account is suspended, or your vehicle registration is suspended.
Carriers are required to carry the Oregon Tax Credential in their vehicles and fuel purchases are tax-exempt when the Tax Credential is shown at fuel station. Carriers pay a weight-mile tax rather than fuels tax. For Over-Dimension Loads you must obtain a Variance Permit prior to operating.
