2015 ORS 807.745¹
Findings regarding personal information contained in driver licenses, driver permits and identification cards

The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) Oregon recognizes the importance of protecting the confidentiality and privacy of an individual’s personal information contained in driver licenses, driver permits and identification cards.

(2) Machine-readable features found on driver licenses, driver permits and identification cards are intended to facilitate verification of age or identity, not to facilitate collection of personal information about individuals nor to facilitate the creation of private databases of transactional information associated with those individuals.

(3) Easy access to the information found on driver licenses, driver permits and identification cards facilitates the crime of identity theft, which is a major concern in Oregon. [2009 c.546 §1]

Note: 807.745 (Findings regarding personal information contained in driver licenses, driver permits and identification cards) and 807.750 (Restrictions on swiping driver licenses or identification cards) were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of the Oregon Vehicle Code or any chapter or series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
