The Oregon DMV has fairly straight forward processes in place for inheriting a vehicle. There are four possible processes:
1. Title has Multiple Owners with Survivorship.
2. Title without Survivorship and Estate is not going to be Probated.
3. Title without Survivorship and Estate is currently being Probated.
4. Title without Survivorship and Estate has been Probated, but is now closed.
For details on these processes, the DMV has a document with links to additional help and forms. The document is here: https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/DMV/docs/vehicle/inherit.pdf.
