(2) The Department of Transportation may receive electronically transmitted documents necessary to:

(a) Issue or transfer a certificate of title for a vehicle;

(b) Register a vehicle or transfer registration of a vehicle;

(c) Issue a registration plate; or

(d) Comply with odometer disclosure requirements.

(3) Except as required in ORS 803.094 (Release or assignment of title interest) and 803.205 (Proof of ownership or security interest on transfer or application for title or registration) for affidavits, an acknowledgement before a notary public is not required when a document or signature is transmitted electronically under this section. When an affidavit is required under ORS 803.094 (Release or assignment of title interest) or 803.205 (Proof of ownership or security interest on transfer or application for title or registration), the department may accept a scanned copy of the person’s signature and a scanned copy of the notary public’s acknowledgment of the signature, which accurately reproduces the original signatures and contents of the document.

(4) The department may adopt rules relating to the electronic transmission of documents and the use of electronic signatures on documents described in subsection (2) of this section. [2015 c.708 §2]
