The UK DVLA (Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency) is brilliant. You can do all you need to do online, and they have a great feature where you can check a vehicles current and past test status, recorded mileage and even where it was tested. Very handy if you are buying.

ORS 806.020 exempts from financial responsibility laws "any motor vehicle not operated on any highway or premises open to the public in this state". Petitioner provided credible evidence establishing that his vehicle, which was selected for random verification, has not been operated upon public highways or premises open to the public since the fall of 2016.Because Petitioner's vehicle has not been operated upon premises open to the public since well before the verification date, Petitioner is exempted from maintaining liability insurance on the subject vehicle. Therefore, the future financial responsibility filing requirement must be withdrawn.


The Department shall not suspend Petitioner's driving privileges for failing to make future responsibility filings in this matter.

...so, 10 months later, 7 DMV notices, 2 phone calls to DMV helpline, 1 call from a DMV manager, 1 form testifying that the vehicle was not in my possession or being driven, and 1 hearing by judge, this whole thing is dismissed. The whole matter could have been summed up in this conversation;

Them "Did you have insurance on the vehicle?"
Me "No."
Them "Why not"
Me "I wasn't driving it, and it was parked in my parent's field."
Them "Oh, well never mind."

Give me absolute safety, or give me death!

I may be wrong, but a properly functioning government should enforce social contracts* and defend it's borders.**

Anything more is over-reaching.

*Police [includes courts]
**Navy [excludes Marines]
