2011 ORS § 803.420¹
Registration fees

This section establishes registration fees for vehicles. If there is uncertainty as to the classification of a vehicle for purposes of the payment of registration fees under the vehicle code, the Department of Transportation may classify the vehicle to assure that registration fees for the vehicle are the same as for vehicles the department determines to be comparable. The registration fees for the vehicle shall be those based on the classification determined by the department. Except as otherwise provided in this section, or unless the vehicle is registered quarterly, the fees described in this section are for an entire registration period for the vehicle as described under ORS 803.415 (Registration periods for vehicles). The department shall apportion any fee under this section to reflect the number of quarters registered for a vehicle registered for a quarterly registration period under ORS 803.415 (Registration periods for vehicles). The fees are payable when a vehicle is registered and upon renewal of registration. Except as provided in ORS 801.041 (Terms and conditions for imposition of registration fee by county) (3) and 801.042 (Terms and conditions for imposition of registration fee by district) (7), the fee shall be increased by any amount established by the governing body of a county or by the governing body of a district, as defined in ORS 801.237 (District defined for certain purposes), under ORS 801.041 (Terms and conditions for imposition of registration fee by county) or 801.042 (Terms and conditions for imposition of registration fee by district) as an additional registration fee for the vehicle. The fees for registration of vehicles are as follows:

(1) Vehicles not otherwise provided for in this section or ORS 821.320 (Snowmobile registration and permit fees), $43 for each year of the registration period.

(2) Mopeds, $24 for each year of the registration period.
