DMV uses a unique system to monitor driving records in order to determine if a
driver’s license should be suspended or taken away.
Oregon’s system is unlike
most other state’s system because points are not assigned to each infraction.
Oregon’s Driver Improvement Program (DIP) is
- A driver (adult) who receives three traffic
convictions and/or accidents within 18 months cannot drive between midnight and
5 a.m. except for employment purposes.
- A driver who receives four or more traffic
convictions and/or accidents within 24 months will have a license suspended for
- A driver under 18 who has two
convictions/accidents will have a license suspension for 90 days. A driver under 18 who has three
convictions/accidents will have a license suspension for six months.
Offender Program. In addition to the DIP, Oregon will revoke the license of
a driver who receives three or more “major” convictions (or 20 or more traffic
convictions) within five years.
