How can I get a driver's license in Oregon with an international license?

Is there some way I can transfer my licensing credentials? I'm a new resident of the state; I just moved here from the UK.

“Congratulations on your move!
To get a license in Oregon, you will need to follow the steps as if you are applying for a brand new license. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to bypass the license requirements in Oregon by transfering your UK driving credentials.
To get an Oregon license, you need to:
  • submit an application to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
  • pass the written and visual tests.
  • pay the applicable fees.
If you plan on borrowing a friend’s car or buying your own, you’ll need to get a car insurance policy.
Navigating a new state’s (let alone a new country’s) insurance jargon can be confusing, but Jerry is here to help. You can signup for the free Jerry app in less than 45 seconds, and Jerry will do all the hardwork of comparison shopping and filling out signup paperwork for you so you can start driving stress free in your new home.”
