What is the Provisional Driver License Program?
The Department of Public Safety now offers a program whereby a person whose driver license to operate a motor vehicle has been suspended or revoked may enter into an agreement with the Department of Public Safety to allow such person limited driving privileges to drive between their place of residence and their place of employment or potential employment; during the scope and course of their employment; between their place of residence and a college, university or technology center; between their place of residence and their child's school or day care provider; between their place of residence and a place of worship; or between their place of residence and any court-ordered treatment program.
The intent of this program is to allow persons, who have served their period of suspension or revocation, but have not paid the required statutory fees necessary for reinstatement of driving privileges to the Department of Public Safety, to be able to drive in a limited capacity. This limited driving ability is conditioned upon the minimum monthly payment of $25.00 to the Department of Public Safety toward the satisfaction of all outstanding driver license reinstatement fees.
In order to qualify for this program, the person must be otherwise eligible to reinstate to full driving privileges; must have an unexpired driver license, must have current liability insurance in their name; must obtain a photo Oklahoma Identification Card; must pay a non-refundable $50.00 enrollment fee to the Department of Public Safety to enter the program plus the first minimum monthly payment of $25.00; and their suspensions or revocations must not have been as a result of any of the following disqualifying offenses:
- Manslaughter or negligent homicide resulting from the operation of a motor vehicle;
- Driving or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, any other intoxicating substance, or the combined influence of alcohol and any other intoxicating substance;
- Revocations for Refusals to Test;
- Revocations for Test Failures.
In order to be eligible for a Class D license under the Provisional Driver License Program, the following criteria must be met:
- The Applicant for the Class D license cannot be a Commercial Driver License holder, and
- The Applicant for the Class D license must renew and/or retest, if required, if the Applicant's Class D license has expired or expires within the next 6 months.
