DMV alters policy on proof of residence
Beginning Friday, the Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division of the state Department of Transportation will no longer accept rental agreements or lease contracts as proof of residence when issuing a driver's license or identification card.
State transportation officials say the documents are too easy to counterfeit.
State law requires proof of a person's residence before DMV can issue a driver license, instruction permit or identification card.
DMV will continue to accept mortgage agreements.
Other examples of proof of residence include a paycheck stub issued by an Oregon employer or a utility hookup order, both dated within the previous 60 days.
Transportation on society's agenda
Joe Harwood, a state Department of Transportation spokesman, will speak at the next meeting of the Rubicon Society.
Harwood will discuss "Transportation Plans for Lane County" at noon Thursday at the Pearl Street Ice Cream Parlour and Restaurant at the corner of Pearl Street and East 13th Avenue. Lunch is optional.
