The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending the REAL ID full enforcement date by 19 months, from October 1, 2021 to May 3, 2023, due to circumstances resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Transfer a License

  1. How do I transfer a valid (not expired) license from another state to Oklahoma?

    • If your license from another state is valid, take a primary and a secondary approved form of identification and your out of state license to a DPS Driver License Office. The written and driving test may be waived if department standards are met. If you possess an out-of-country license please contact a Driver Examiner to find out if the tests can be waived. Even if your written and driving tests are waived, you will still be required to take a vision test.

    • Also, Oklahoma state law requires new applicants for an Oklahoma driver license or ID card to show proof of legal presence in the United States. Along with your primary and secondary identification, you will need to bring a U.S. Passport, U.S. birth certificate or Certificate of Naturalization to show you are a citizen of the United States or an immigration document showing you are legally in the United States. Once your process is complete at DPS, you will be given an authorization form that you can take to any one of the 276 Motor License Agents across the state that issue driver license. They will process your paperwork, collect all necessary fees and print your Oklahoma license.

Upon establishing Oklahoma residency, your vehicle must be registered with the Oklahoma Tax Commission. (see your local Motor License Agent) This may not apply to military personnel and their spouses.
