Even though basic traffic laws and regulations are similar all over the world, there are still numerous differences you should be aware of when driving in a new country. If you are planning to visit the US and want to be able to drive during your stay, you should review the traffic regulations specific to the states where you intend to drive.
If you hold a valid license issued by another country and are staying in Oklahoma for a short visit, you are not required to obtain an Oklahoma drivers license. However, if you accept employment or become a resident, you will have to surrender your license and apply for an Oklahoma drivers license. In most cases, you will be required to take a written examination and driving test at a Department of Public Safety office before you can be issued a license. Contact the closest DPS office to find out if you need any prior testing.
