What is the curfew for teen drivers in Oregon?

My son is 16 and he just got his driver’s license. His best friend lives a five-minute drive away. Typically, on the weekends, he hangs out there until about midnight. I’m wondering if there is a curfew for teen drivers in Oregon so that I can make sure my son isn’t breaking the law?

The curfew for
teen drivers
is between midnight and 5 a.m.
However, young drivers may be granted an exception if they are commuting home from work—just make sure your son is carrying valid documentation in case he’s pulled over.
The statewide curfew applies to teens under the age of 18. The curfew restriction expires on the driver’s 18th birthday—as long as no motor vehicle violations are committed in the meantime.
Oregon’s curfew for underaged drivers is a precautionary measure to reduce the number of collisions. Another way to stay safe on Oregon’s roads is to carry good
