The department may provide by rule for acceptance of something other than an actual residence or post-office address if the department determines that the applicant does not have an actual address. The department shall require proof to verify the address in addition to anything else the department may require of the applicant. The department shall adopt rules to identify what constitutes proof of address for purposes of this subsection. Verification of proof of address may include, but is not limited to, providing a utility bill, a tax return, a record from a financial institution, a proof of insurance card or a health benefits card, a selective service card, a mortgage document or a lease agreement. The applicant may provide the proof of address by submitting proof in the form of an original document or a copy of a document, use an electronic device to display proof of address, or provide proof through the use of a third party address verification system.

(b) What jurisdiction granted the license or driver permit;

(c) Whether or not the driving privileges under the license or driver permit are currently suspended or revoked; and

(d) If the driving privileges are revoked or suspended, the date and reason for the suspension or revocation.

(3) The class of license sought.

(4) The Social Security number of the applicant or other number or identifying information determined appropriate by the Secretary of the United States Department of Transportation, if the application is for a commercial driver license or a commercial learner driver permit or if the Oregon Department of Transportation by rule requires the Social Security number on the application.
