Future responsibility filings required by ORS 806.200 (Failure to file after accident), 806.220 (Failure to file after failing verification) or 806.230 (Failure of previous violator to file) or by any other law of this state are subject to all of the following:

(1) Except as provided in subsection (3) of this section, the person required to make the filing must file with the Department of Transportation, or have filed with the department for the benefit of the person, proof that meets the requirements of this section and must maintain the proof as required under ORS 806.245 (Termination of future responsibility filing requirement). The filing is made on the date it is received by the department if it is received during regular business hours.

(2) The proof filed under subsection (1) of this section must be:

(a) A certificate or certificates of insurance that meet the requirements under ORS 806.270 (Certificate of insurance); or

The department shall endorse restrictions, as appropriate, on any license or driver permit the person holds as the department determines necessary to limit the persons ability to operate vehicles consistent with this subsection.

(4) Whenever proof filed under this section no longer meets the requirements of this section, the department shall require the furnishing of other proof for the future responsibility filing.
