I have found out that if you’re transferring your vehicle registration from another State, and there’s no loan involved, or lease, then you will need the ORIGINAL Title for the DMV.
If you do have a loan or lease, your lender will have to obtain the ORIGINAL Title from your State. You will also have to complete the Registration Application – here it is again – https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/Forms/DMV/226fill.pdf and send that, along with these forms – https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/Forms/DMV/6603.pdf – to your lender, along with a check/postal order for your fees, so they can then send BACK to the DMV here in Oregon once they receive the ORIGINAL Title document.
Sounds complicated, and it is, and it can take a while if you’re not proactive, so just a heads up for all of you incoming to Oregon!
That originally said 3 months ago, and just last week I finally received my new Oregon plates via US Mail, they are now secured to my car and I finally feel like I truly belong.
