ORS 319.040¹
Application for and issuance of dealer’s license

(1) Every person, before becoming a dealer in motor vehicle fuel in this state, shall make an application to the Department of Transportation for a license authorizing such person to engage in business as a dealer.

(2) Applications for the license must be made on forms prescribed, prepared and furnished by the department.

(3) The applications shall be accompanied by a duly acknowledged certificate containing:

(a) The name under which the dealer is transacting business within Oregon.

(b) The places of business and location of distributing stations of the dealer in Oregon.

(c) The name and address of the managing agent, the names and addresses of the several persons constituting the firm or partnership and, if a corporation, the corporate name under which it is authorized to transact business and the names and addresses of its principal officers and registered agent.

(4) If the dealer is an association of persons, firm, partnership or corporation organized under the laws of another state, territory or country, if it has not already done so, it must first comply with the laws of Oregon relating to the transaction of its appropriate business in Oregon.

(5) The application for a motor vehicle fuel dealer’s license having been accepted for filing, and the bond required by ORS 319.050 (Performance bond) having been accepted and approved, the department may issue to the dealer a license in such form as the department may prescribe to transact business as a dealer in the State of Oregon. The license so issued is not assignable, and is valid only for the dealer in whose name issued.

(6) The department shall keep and file all applications and bonds with an alphabetical index thereof, together with a record of all licensed dealers. [Amended by 1957 c.209 §2; 1999 c.769 §18]
