A person commits the offense of failure to renew vehicle registration if the registration period for a vehicle registered in the person’s name expires and the person does not pay the fee required for renewal of registration.


This section does not apply if the vehicle is no longer required or qualified to be registered in this state when the registration period expires.


The fee required to be paid for renewal of registration under this section is the same fee that is required for registration of the vehicle under ORS 803.420 (Registration fees).


The offense described in this section, failure to renew vehicle registration, is a Class D traffic violation. [1983 c.338 §234; 1985 c.16 §89; 1985 c.305 §11]
