In California you are required to fill out a credit application when purchasing a new vehicle, even if you are paying for it in full with a check.  That was the case when I purchased a new Prius in 2011.  Does anyone know if that policy exists in Oregon?

The California Car Buyer's Bill of Rights per the California DOMV and the California Dept. of Consumer Affairs says it's the law.
Or rather, it actually doesn't specifically say it's the law, but in order for the dealer to meet the requirements of  the law...
By giving you your credit score and an explanation of how it is used and what finance options are available to you...

At the very least, they'll need your SS# and your signed authorization to enable them to obtain that credit score.

That law went into effect in 2006.

Interestingly in 2014, The LA times stated that this is NOT the law.
It says that while you have to provide your SS# if the transaction is over $10K...
"You can refuse to authorize a credit check, regardless of how hard the sales rep pushes."

All this seems to be a moot point concerning the SRK though, because the "Car Buyer's Bill of Rights" itself says...
"This law does not apply to motorcycles and off-highway motor vehicles or to transactions between private parties."

As the SRK is going to be considered and registered by the Federal government as a motorcycle, the rule doesn't apply.

Since you specifically asked about Oregon, I'll pass this one to one of our members from Oregon that may have that information.
Or if you like, you can contact Arcimoto themselves. Since they're based in Eugene, OR, I would imagine they would know the answer.
Their email address is available on our "Resource Library" page.

I do not believe this is the case in Oregon, but the only vehicle I've paid for with cash was used.
