All residents who operate a motor vehicle on any Oregon street or highway must have an Oregon driver's license or learner's permit. DMV will test your eyesight to confirm you can see well enough to drive safely. The questions on the Oregon DMV written test will be based on the contents of the Oregon Driver's Manual, and will concern the Oregon road rules, traffic laws, road signs and safe driving practices.
