An application shall be accompanied by a current, recognizable passport style color photograph of the applicant taken within 30 days preceding receipt of the application.


Withholding information, misrepresentation, or submission of untrue or false statements as part of the application are deemed to demonstrate untrustworthiness and are cause for a civil penalty under ORS 674.850 (Civil penalties) and either denial of an application or subsequent disciplinary action.


The application must include the applicant’s Social Security number for identification purposes as authorized by ORS 25.785 (Issuing entities to require Social Security number) and will remain on file with the Board. Failure to provide a Social Security Number is grounds to deny an application.
