We recommend our clients obtain temporary permits even if only
traveling into Oregon occasionally. You are allowed up to 5 a year, however If your operation takes you to
Oregon on a frequent basis, we recommend you be permitted there and
obtain annual credentials.
Oregon requires all new entrants to become bonded
before permanent credentials are issued. Bonds may be placed by a Surety
Company or posted with cash. The size of you fleet will determine the
amount of the bond required. For example, the bond requirement to open
an account is generally $2,000.00 for carriers with 1 to 3 power units that travel to Oregon.
If you choose to obtain annual credentials, you are required to
obtain annual credentials, file a monthly mileage tax report and pay all
tax due. This is mandatory for the first year. If all monthly reports
are filed and paid timely, Oregon usually allows you to move this
reporting requirement to a quarterly basis.
