New Oregon vehicle registration, title, and trip permit fees took effect Jan. 1, 2020, as part of “Keep Oregon Moving,” the biggest transportation investment in state history.
Under this transportation funding package, the Oregon Legislature passed in 2017; passenger vehicle registration fees will be based mostly on the vehicle’s fuel efficiency rating.
Drivers of more efficient vehicles will pay more to register and renew their tags, contributing more to the use of the roads. That’s because these drivers are providing much less (or nothing) in fuel tax while driving just as much.
Drivers of electric vehicles and passenger cars that get 40 miles per gallon or better will have a choice. They can pay a full fee for two or four years upfront or pay a lower fee and a monthly per-mile charge for miles driven in Oregon if they join OReGO.
