In 1999, SB 487 was passed and became effective September 1, 2000. It requires proof of enrollment before issuing a drivers permit or license to children under the age of 18. The law also allows a school district to request the DMV to suspend the driving privileges of a student who no longer complies with Oregon law.

    If the student is under the age of 18 and would like to get an Oregon driver’s permit or license, the DMV requires all students to show proof of school enrollment. A “Statement of Enrollment” is available online to the parent by logging in to the WESD home school web application.
