It is a requirement in the state of Oregon that trucking companies and owner-operators obtain Oregon Truck Permits even if motor carriers have an IFTA license.
The following are Oregon truck permits:

- The vehicle’s gross weight is over 26,000 pounds and\or has 3 axles.

- Oregon does not appear on the registration cab card.
Note: The registration or Cab Card must be obtained by the truck driver for information.

Trailers that are not registered already, are required to obtain a permit.
This permit is issued to motor carriers when:
