Once here you will need to get your Oregon License and car registration (if you are moving from out of state) – the DMV here in Bend is pretty easy to navigate – best days to visit are Wednesdays as they have extended hours and the worst are Mondays (of course) and any pay day (1st, 15th, 30th/31st of each month).

If your vehicle is owned free and clear you only need to complete the registration form found here:  https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/Forms/DMV/226fill.pdf and follow these instructions: https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/docs/trooshavetitle.pdf

If your vehicle has a loan on it, you’ll need to complete the above form – link again – https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/Forms/DMV/226fill.pdf  then send it to the lien holder along with this: https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/docs/trlien.pdf

To get your license – all the information is here:  https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/pages/driverid/licenseget.aspx  You’ll also need to pass a written driving test, maybe have your car smog checked, and most importantly have your vehicle with you at the DMV – don’t plan on walking there!

They are not issuing the new ID cards until January 2020, by which time you read this it could be 2021 so you’re good to go!

I was a forever San Diego/Lake Tahoe gal for 37 years until I visited Bend and fell in love ... with everything about this beautiful city. I raced back to So Cal, got a moving van, packed everything I loved (and couldn't live without) and hit the road for Bend, Oregon. Just like that. Now I'm a "Bendonian" discovering everything about the city and surrounding areas. And I want to share it all with you, the good, the wonderful and the best places to shop and eat. So I started this blog to document both the journey and to find ways to make it easier for you when you pull up stakes and strike out for your own life in Bend!
