DMV to allow you to keep old ID when applying for new card
Customers' old cards will instead be invalidated with a punched hole in the name and address area, and then returned to customers. This will give people another form of photo identification while they wait for their new ID card to arrive in the mail.
Oregon converted to issuing driver licenses and ID cards from a secure central production facility in the summer of 2007. DMV now mails driver licenses and ID cards directly to customers, and most people receive their secure cards through the US mail within a few days. However, some have reported problems proving their age or identity at other agencies and businesses, including OLCC-licensed businesses, with only the interim card. The inconsistent acceptance of the interim card has created problems for some individuals who don't have any other form of photo ID.
DMV will be instructing customers to destroy both cards (invalidated old ID and paper interim card) once they receive their new plastic card in the mail. This will help protect personal information.
While this change will provide people with an additional piece of identification to help prove their age and identity in conjunction with a valid interim car, the invalidated ID will not meet the statutory requirements for a stand-alone ID for the purposes of purchasing or consuming alcoholic beverages, as well as entering and remaining in an area prohibited to minors.
Some businesses and their staff may refer to the punched IDs only as a back-up ID - additional proof of the patron's age and identity - provided that a legitimate ID has already been presented.
