The Driver and Motor Vehicle Division (DMV) protects financial and ownership interests in vehicles, provides driver licenses and identification cards for Oregon residents and collects revenues for Oregon’s statewide multimodal transportation system. There are currently more than 3.1 million licensed drivers and more than 4.5 million registered vehicles in Oregon. DMV regulates and inspects about 3,500 vehicle- and driver-related businesses, such as auto dealers and dismantlers. Additionally, the division is home to statewide transportation safety programs. These programs conduct campaigns focused on increasing safe driving behaviors such as using safety belts and child safety seats, and reducing dangerous driving behaviors such as impaired driving, speeding and distracted driving. The Safety team partners with law enforcement, safety advocates and others to promote transportation safety. Headquartered in Salem, DMV has 60 field offices throughout the state.​​
