An Overview of Oregon Trucking Permits
Oregon requires a trip permit for any vehicle over 26,000 pounds. A trip permit allows you to operate your vehicle on public roads for up to 10 days total within the state of Oregon. After 10 days, another permit must be acquired or the vehicle will be subject to fines.
Oregon has weight limits that must be adhered to when operating a commercial vehicle in the state. The maximum gross weight for most vehicles is 80,000 pounds (with exceptions for special types of vehicles). Tractor-trailers are limited to 70,000 pounds; however, this limit may increase depending on how many axles a trailer has and what type of tires it is equipped with. It is important to research these restrictions before driving your commercial vehicle through Oregon so that you do not incur penalties or fines due to exceeding the allowable weight limits.
DOT- Oregon imposes strict laws when it comes to commercial trucking. All Oregon-based companies that wish to transport goods for hire must register for a Department of Transportation (DOT) number, which serves as an identification for the company, as well as tracks their safety records for drivers and vehicles. Oregon DOT numbers are responsible for ensuring compliance with Oregon's vehicle regulations, from drug testing drivers to analyzing accident reports; thus improving safety on Oregon roads and creating a uniform standard for commercial trucking across the state.

Federal MC Authority
Oregon’s motor carriers, large and small alike, are subject to the rules and regulations handed down by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). To prove compliance, Oregon motor carrier operators must register for a Motor Carrier (MC) number. These numbers are assigned by the FMCSA and enable Oregon motor carriers to demonstrate their commercial trucking authority. Obtaining an MC number isn't just important in Oregon; it's a requirement of operating interstate commerce as well. For Oregon motor carriers hauling goods in other states, an MC number is essential. Companies that do not have an MC number are subject to fines and shutdowns if they're caught operating without one. Oregon motor carriers need to be aware that having and maintaining an updated Having an MC number is the best way to maintain compliance with federal requirements.
Oregon commercial trucking companies must make a federal filing known as a BOC-3 in order to, among other things, register to pay Oregon's road usage charges. This filing is for interstate motor carriers and freight forwarders, and must show the name, address and contact information of the company as well as contact details of any s professional agents or representatives. Any Oregon commercial trucking company doing business in other states will require this filing in order to remain legally compliant.
Oregon’s UCR filing is part of a nationwide program created by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, known as the Unified Carrier Registration. Every fleet owner or operator that engages in interstate commercial trucking must register their fleet with Oregon to make sure they're in compliance with federal regulations. Oregon serves as the designated contracting state for UCR, which allows Oregon-based fleets and out-of-state carriers to properly register and renew their UCR filings at one convenient location. Compliance with these timely filings ensures Oregon's commercial trucks are up to speed on FMCSA regulations and standards; keeping Oregon’s roads safe for everyone.
Oregon requires commercial trucking businesses to comply with the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, or HVUT. The tax is set by the IRS and applies to trucks weighing 55,000 pounds or more that are operated on public highways. Oregon business owners are required to file Form 2290 with the IRS each year and obtain a stamped Schedule 1 as proof of payment. Though Oregon is known as a low tax state, failure to comply with the 2290 HVUT can result in significant fines, late fees, and other penalties. Business owners should take note of their obligations under IRS rules around heavy vehicle use taxes and stay abreast of any changes that may impact their businesses.
